      From the Hulk Still Rules DVD, Hogan said that the commitment to Stallone to film the movie (7-10 days) was in direct conflict with dates that VJM booked for Hogan in the Carolinas, and it came down to VJM saying cancel the film commitment and go to the Carolinas or he would no longer have a job in the WWF. Hogan kept the movie commitment and was fired.

    Is that revisionist history? I thought Hogan was in the AWA at the time, constantly losing title matches to Bockwinkel (from my recollection of the Apter mags), then after he blew up in Rocky III, all of the sudden he was winning the title at MSG.

Release dates for Rocky III (1982), credit
Country: USA
Date: 28 May 1982

So basically, while this was being filmed sometime in '81, Hogan was with New York and he had his fiasco with Vince Sr., but by the time it came out he was in the AWA and it helped turn him into the man of the hour. In fact, he went straight to the AWA right after he fulfilled his filming committment, so he was there sometime in '81, although exactly when I don't know, mostly due to not yet having been born at the time.

As for who should induct him, why not Bischoff? Or better yet, both Hebners, and Hogan could demand to know which one hid his award.

I'm surprised "Hogan's My Dad" hasn't been contacted by WWE, given the company's history of having children induct their fathers...

Either that or Tugboat. After organizing that letter-writing campaign, it's the least Hulk can do for Fred Ottman's career.....

From what I understand, the "Hogan fired by Vince Sr. after he chose to do Rocky III" thing is legitimate. Of course, Rocky III was the first time that a lot of people even saw Hulk Hogan. When Vince Jr. took over the WWF, one of the first things he did was get Hogan back. Vince Sr. was more of a "pure wrestling" guy, thinking that Hogan in a movie would be bad for business. Vince Jr. knew that it'd be great for business.

Allegedly, that is. I was three months and five days old when Rocky III came out, so whaddayawantfromme?

Funniest thing I've read in a long time. On a semi-but-not-really related note, didn't he first start Hulkamania in AWA?

I think it was actually HulkMania, removing the first "a", in the AWA

Either that or go down to Houston and find some good screw producers... even though those tracks would probably STILL be too fast.
