It's January 23, 2009. It's a historic day.

25 years ago today, on January 23, 1984, Hulk Hogan defeated the Iron Sheik in Madison Square Garden to become the WWF World Champion.

Hulkamania was born today, and with it the modern era of sports entertainment.

Check out the match as Hogan squashes the Sheik in 6 minutes, brother.

What's with the extra bell ringing during the intros? Was that regularly done?

Those curly, pointy boots will never cease to make me laugh.



Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

Yes. Similar to how a judge bangs his gavel to silence the courtroom, the bell was rung to keep the crowd's attention and quiet them down for the remaining announcements.

Same thing happens in boxing...or at least it used to.

Better watch it quickly before the WWE's copyright hounds get it taken down...it's quite an entertaining match!

The "Incredible" Hulk Hogan, eh? Huh.

I thought they were just there to have good matches with spoiler? (spoiler text) putting them over on the special, which they want to be buzzworthingly good like the last one.
