I hate to ask people to do work for me, but I'm looking for a transcript of Hulk Hogan's basically insane promo from WrestleMania IV. I've tried every single combination of search terms that I can think of on google, and nothing is coming up at all. The best I could find was Scott Keith alluding to it, like so:


    "I usually skip over interviews, but I have to point out Hulk Hogan giving the most bizarre, overblown, egomaniacal, delusional interview I've ever heard. Something about slamming Andre and the earth breaking apart and Donald Trump drowning but letting go of his material possessions and embracing Hulkamania as his lord and savior and on and on."


Normally, I'd just go to a video store and try to rent a copy of it and transcribe it myself, but none of my local stores carries anything other than a few of the bigger shows from the last 5 years. Does anyone know the thing by heart? Or have a DVD of the show they can quickly look at? I really do hate to ask other people to do my "research" for me, but I've done pretty much all I can, short of buying the show myself.


Mods: if this is evil or wrong and deserves banishment, I completely understand. :)

Boy that promo gives the Ultimate Warrior a run for his money!



I think you're an asshole. No, no, let me correct that, an immature asshole. Which is fine, except that you're marrying my daughter and I'm afraid that my grandchildren are gonna be little assholes.

Wow. Thank you very much for taking some time to do this! Being able to hear him say it definitely adds another layer of creeping insanity that would just be missing in a simple transcript. I really appreciate it. Thanks.

Go back to the very first post in this thread and see if you can figure it out. (The first post is usually the one on the tippy-top of the table.)

Well I suppose I can't claim I don't have a transcript now. So here goes:

Mean Gene: All right, over the last couple of months, it has been very difficult for me to introduce this man without using World Wrestling Federation Champion---HULK HOGAN! Here at WrestleMania IV this afternoon, youve got the opportunity to change that.

Hogan: Oh, yeah its been hard to live with man! FEE, FI, FO FUM, Andre. One long year, and your time has come, man. No marks! No scars! No blemishes on the Hulkster, brother! But inside, man, Ive been scarred for one long year. Everywhere I go, man, all the little Hulksters ask me, Is there any truth to the fact that there was a controversial count? Hulkster, did you really get him over your head? Did you really beat The Giant? Well today, man, in Wrestlemania IV, were gonna wipe all that controversy out. Andre the Giant, in the second round, when youre fresh as a daisy, with the whole world watching, Im gonna prove, brother, that I can beatcha anywhere, anytime! And all my Hulkamaniacs, theyre gonna feel it tooooo.

Mean Gene: Speaking of the Hulkamaniacs, Hulk Hogan, we have seen him here in Atlantic City, and I know millions others are watching very intently all around the world.

Hogan: YES! But if you look in their eyes, man, have you seen the fear in all those little Hulksters? They realize that when I get Andre the Giant cinched up in the launch position, when I SLAM him through the Trump Plaza, brother!---from New York, down to Tampa, Florida, the fault line is gonna break off! And as Andre the Giant falls into the ocean!---as my next two opponents fall to the ocean floor and I pin em, so will DONALD TRUMP and ALL THE HULKAMANIACS! But as Donald Trump hangs on to the top of the Trump Plaza, with his family under his other arm, as they SINK, to the BOTTOM OF THE SEA---THANK GOD Donald Trumps a Hulkamaniac! Hell know enough to let go of his materialistic possessions, hang on to the wife and kids, DOG PADDLE with his life all the way to safety! But Donald, if somethin happens, if you run outta gas, and all those little Hulkamaniacs, just hang on to the LARGEST BACK in the world, and Ill dog paddle us, backstroke all of us to safety!

I was thinking of that when I posted, as the responses veered to telling people where the audio could be found but not an actual transcript. I just wanted to hit back on the transcript idea just in case everyone felt the issue was resolved.

Thanks for the transcript, JTL!

Although that promo PALES in comparison to the stuff he did at 88's and 89's Main Event specials. I'll always remember the "How much did you pay for the plastic surgery, brother?" promo about the Hebners, and then the next year, him running around shoving guys like Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels while groaning "Raaaaaaandy..... Raaaaaandy......"

And then, instead of doing one of his famous poses and leaving the interview area, he actually does the backstroke off camera! Hilarity ensues.

God, I remember that promo. It didn't sound quite as insane at the time, but Hogan frequently spoke in apocalyptic terms about his matches. His every move was earthquake or hurricane-inducing.

This all reached a climax in the buildup to Mania VI, which I think delivered some of the all-time weirdest promos. He and the Ultimate Warrior cut truly brain-melting stuff. Warrior would go on and on in those pretaped promos during a Big Bully Busick match about the sun being alligned with the seventh ring of Saturn and on that day Mars would break open with a beam of red light, pouring strength into the Warrior's body and transforming Toronto into a sea of flames that he and Hogan would do battle over.

And in response, Hogan also upped the crazy factor. On my Wrestlemania VI tape, in the pre-match promo he's going on about how when he's got the Warrior down, to breath his last breath into Hogan, so Hogan can save all the little Warriors.

It seems crazy now, and rightfully so, but remember this was the late 80s. All of our wrestlers/rock stars were fucking lunatics.

Flipping channels during the Red Sox pitching implosion today, an ad appeared on TNN hyping RAW. Now, this in itself isn't unusual. However, the whole ad centered around Jeff Hardy.
