Hulk Hogan, who’s real name is Terry Bollea, is an American professional wrestler, actor, and brand ambassador. He had an extensive career with the WWE until 2015 when his contract was terminated unceremoniously. Hogan has been a world champion 12 times, a WWE champion six times, and a WCW World Heavyweight Champion six times. Hogan’s long and successful career as a wrestler came abruptly to an end in 2015 when he was caught on tape making racial slurs during an argument. Hulk’s contract with the WWE was immediately terminated, and he was stripped of all of his titles. He no longer appears in the WWE Hall Of Fame. Hogan’s daughter Brooke came to his defense, penning a poem that went viral on Facebook.
