EC3 Clears Up A Lie About Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan joined Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) in late 2009 and left in October 2013, briefly before Dixie’s storyline/kayfabe nephew Ethan Carter III (EC3) joined the promotion.

During an episode of ‘The Wrestling Outlaws’, EC3 recalled meeting Hulk Hogan backstage in WWE, while working as an extra.

Ethan was warned about approaching The Hulkster backstage, because of certain rumors about Hulk being rude and unfriendly, but EC3 had an entirely different experience of meeting the former nWo leader.

Here’s what EC3 said:

“I’m an extra, and one of the guys comes to me and asks whether I want to talk to Hogan. He said ‘He’ll be a pretty mean dude’.

I was like ‘He’s probably mean to some a–hole yelling at him or trying to get a picture with him at one point and whatever’, the lie spread.

So, I’m walking down the corridor. Here’s Hogan walking down. This is Cleveland, Ohio, and I’m like ‘You know what? Whatever!’.

I go up and say ‘Sir, how are you?’. He goes ‘Hi brother, nice to meet you, man!’.

Alright! I let him go. People are just afraid to talk to, you know, uber-awesome alpha males.”

Hulk Hogan is among the biggest names in professional wrestling history, and probably the single biggest name when it comes to the WWF/WWE, because Hogan (with Vince McMahon behind him) turned a regional, local attraction into a national and international phenomenon during the 80s and brought pro wrestling to heights, it had never seen before.

Therefore pretty much every WWF/WWE Superstar that came up during the 90s, 00s and after that, most likely wouldn’t have been in the position they were in and wouldn’t have made anywhere near as much money, if it wasn’t for The Hulkster. You could even refer to the so called butterfly effect (a chaos theory term).

‘The Immortal’ Hulk Hogan wrestled from 1977 until 2012 and worked for the major pro wrestling promotions on the planet, including the World Wrestling Federation / WWE (1979-1981, 1984-1993 & 2002-2006), Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1994-2000), Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (1981-1983), Antonio Inoki’s New Japan Pro Wrestling (1980-1985, 1993-1994, 2003) and Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (2010-2013).
