Hulk Hogan’s Lifestyle 2021

Terry Eugene Bollea , better  known by his ring name Hulk Hogan,   is an American retired professional wrestler,  television personality, actor, entrepreneur,   and musician, born on August 11, 1953 in Augusta,  Georgia.

Hogan was more than any other individual   the person responsible for turning professional  wrestling from a regional curiosity into the big   “sports entertainment” business that it is today.

During his heyday in the 1980s and 90s, he was one   of the most recognizable figures in the world and  was able to branch out into television and films. Terry Bollea was the son of construction foreman  Pietro “Peter” Bollea (1913- 2001) of Italian   descent and homemaker and dance teacher  Ruth V.

Bollea (1922 – 2011) of Scottish,   French and Panamanian descent. When he was still a baby,   the family relocated to Tampa, Florida where  Hulk has called home ever since. As a young   person his sport of choice was baseball,  and was said to have attracted professional   big league talent scouts as a Little Leaguer,  but as with many other professional wrestlers   an injury ended his career in more traditional  sports.

He discovered professional wrestling at  age 16, setting himself on the course that would  change his life and the entire wrestling world. In December 1983, Bollea married Linda Claridge.   They have a daughter Brooke and a son  Nick.

Linda filed for divorce in 2007   after finding out about Hogan’s affair with her  friend. In his 2009 autobiography, Hogan denied   allegations that he ever cheated on her and even  considered committing suicide after the divorce.

Hogan has been in a relationship with  Jennifer McDaniel since early 2008.   The two were engaged in November 2009 and  married a year later in Clearwater, Florida. Hulk Hogan’s career in wrestling began under  modest circumstances, wrestling a match for   the CWF promotion in Fort Myers, Florida in  1977, eventually adopting a masked character   known as “The Super Destroyer.

” After a local  TV host compared Hogan favorably to Incredible   Hulk star Lou Ferigno, the “Hulkster” character  that would make him a star began to take shape,   but it wasn’t until he joined forces with Vince  McMahon Sr.

in 1979 that he started using the name   “Hogan.” The following year, he began also  wrestling in Japan while still with the WWF,   but after taking the role of Thunderlips in  “Rocky III” without McMahon’s permission he   parted ways for the first time with the WWF.

He  came back in 1983 after McMahon’s son took over   the company with eyes toward more mainstream  success for the sport, and he wanted Hogan to   be the face of the company. There, his persona as  a heroic all-American helped usher in the 1980s   professional wrestling boom, where he headlined  the first nine editions of WWF’s flagship annual   event, WrestleMania.

During his initial run,  Hogan also won the WWF Championship five times,   with his first reign holding the record for the  second-longest in company history. Additionally,   he is the first wrestler to win consecutive Royal  Rumble matches, winning in 1990 and 1991.

In 1993,  he departed the WWF to sign for rival  promotion World Championship Wrestling (WCW).   Hogan subsequently won the WCW World Heavyweight  Championship six times, and also holds the record   for the longest reign in company history.

In 1996,  he underwent a career renaissance upon adopting   the villainous persona of “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan,  leading the popular New World Order (NWO) stable.   As a result, he became a major figure during the  “Monday Night Wars”, another boom of mainstream   professional wrestling.

Hogan returned to WWE in  2002 following its acquisition of WCW the prior   year, winning the WWE championship for a sixth  time before departing in 2003. He was inducted   into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005, and inducted  a second time in 2020 as a member of the NWO.

Hogan used his popularity to launch an  acting career. His first film role was   the aforementioned performance as  Thunderlips in 1982’s “Rocky III”.   In the 80s and 90s Hogan made several attempts  to make it as a mainstream Hollywood action star,   appearing in films like “No Holds Barred”, “Mr.

Nanny” and many television series and video games.   Hogan succumbed to the trend of celebrity reality  television with the VH1 series Hogan Knows Best,   featuring him and his family. He was also  the frontman for The Wrestling Boot Band,   whose sole record, Hulk Rules, reached No.

12  on the Billboard Top Kid Audio chart in 1995. As of 2021, Hulk Hogan’s net  worth is roughly $25 million,   which makes him one of the  richest wrestlers in the world. In August 2015, Hulk Hogan purchased a  five-bed, six-bath, 5,400 square-feet home   in Clearwater Beach, which he shares with  his new wife Jennifer.

This $3.3 million   house features a beachfront deck among the  sand dunes and has panoramic beach views. Hulk Hogan’s most popular and famous car  is no doubt his 1994 Dodge Viper RT/10,   probably because it’s his most outlandish  looking.

It can accelerate from 0-60 mph   in 4.2 seconds with a max speed of 155  mph and has a base price around $55,000.  The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is one  of his prized vehicular possessions.   Its top speed is 200 mph, and the car  starts at $83,000 for a 2018 version.

The white Chevrolet Tahoe is probably  Hulk’s most down-to-earth car that he   uses to go to the gym. The 2018  Chevrolet Tahoe costs $47,900.   It runs on a 6.2-liter engine,  which produces about 420 horsepower.
