The Greatest Wrestler and Wrestling Singlet of All Time!

The Greatest Wrestler and Wrestling Singlet of All Time!

By Tom Ski

If someone came up to you and said they were a true fan of Terry Gene Bollea, what would you say?  Now if someone came up to you and said, I idolize the Hulk! than there is no way you wouldn`t know exactly who they were talking about.     

Hulk Hogan, is THE American professional wrestler - not to mention actor, television personality, and musician.  This man is widely regarded as the most successful and famous professional wrestler of all time, as well as being the biggest draw in the history of professional wrestling.   

Hulk Hogan will always be known for the color yellow - with his yellow bandana firmly wrapped around that hair of his J.  And Shop4Teams wrestling singlets are available for YOU and YOUR wrestling team to mix and match, so that you can then add that bandana to create your very own  `Hulk-like` signature look.   

In the beginning of the Hulk`s career, he wrestled for various promotions in the National Wrestling Alliance,  and gained HUGE mainstream popularity when he adopted the name of Hulk Hogan and worked for the American Wrestling Association (AWA) in the early 1980`s.  But - not nearly finished - Hulk departed the AWA for the well-known (and fan favorite) WWF, where he immediately won the WWF Championship by defeating The Iron Sheik.  The WWF expanded the  `Hulk Hogan` icon into an all-American hero, who was devoted to the red, white, and blue of the U.S. of A.  American patriotism was the backbone of Hulk Hogan`s image, and his huge fan base of loyal and devoted   `Hulkamaniacs` never let this star down!   

Hogan was the rock star of wrestling, which makes perfect sense that Shop4Teams honors and admires this athlete.  Seeing as that they offer all athletes the rock star image with their incredible line of wrestling singlets, sports jerseys and sports uniforms - they and the Hulk are a perfect match!     

Hulk Hogan headlined almost all major WWF pay per view events, including the first nine of the Wrestlemania franchise, winning five WWF Championships.  And his popularity was so immense, that his signature wrestling singlet and colorful bandana appeared in feature films such as Rocky III. The Hulk was the first wrestler to do the impossible by body slamming Andre the Giant as an audience of 90,000 watched in awe.  Not to mention, the Hulk was part of major wrestling feuds with true villains of the wrestling world like, King Kong Bundy and Randy Savage.    

One of the most widely talked about feuds was during the Gulf War, when Hulk Hogan wrapped himself in red, white, and blue and went against a wrestler by the name of Sgt. Slaughter, who openly wrestled as an anti-American Iraqi sympathizer, which made all of America take a stand behind their ultimate wrestling patriot!   

Shop4Teams again, is the perfect match when it comes to Hulk Hogan and his stellar views on patriotism.  They stand tall for the U.S. of A, and offers the best in wrestling singlet`s and sports uniforms This amazing company promotes each and every athlete to their fullest potential, standing behind them with the best products, fabrics, and prices.   

For a time, the Hulk was known as a villain named, Hollywood Hogan, who went on to win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship six times.  When he reappeared on the wrestling stage in 2002, nostalgia took over and devoted fans across the globe begged for the evil Hollywood to go on his way and for the Hulk Hogan of the 80`s to return.  And return he did!  At WrestleMania XVIII, Hogan finally accepted being the fan favorite again after losing a match to The Rock, and returned to his 1980`s patriotic persona.  He would win his sixth and final WWF Championship a month later, and was the reining champion when the WWF was renamed the WWE.     

In 2005, a friend by the name of Sylvester Stallone, (A.K.A. Rocky Balboa), was on hand to induct Hulk Hogan into the Hall of Fame, locking in the fact that the Hulk would ALWAYS be seen as the best of the best when it came to wrestling.
