After filming his scene for Rocky III, against McMahon's wishes, Hogan made his debut in the American Wrestling Association (AWA), owned by Verne Gagne. Hogan started his AWA run as a heel, taking on "Luscious" Johnny Valiant as his manager, but AWA audiences loved the muscular and more charismatic Hogan, and soon the AWA's bookers were compelled to turn Hogan face.
Hogan was promised the world title by AWA owner Verne Gagne but whenever he was slated to win it the title change would be held off so Hogan got fed up with it and decided to go to the WWF.
After almost 9 years out of the WWF/E, Hulk Hogan finally returned as part of the nWo in 2002. He later went on to face The Rock at 'Wrestlemania X8', taking his total number of 'Mania' appearances to ten. How much do you know about each of them?
