• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 23, 1984) – HULK HOGAN WINS THE TITLE !!!!
On this day in 1984, “The Incredible” Hulk Hogan won his very first WWF World Heavyweight Championship, when he defeated WWF Champion The Iron Sheik in the most famous arena on the planet, New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
Not only did HULKAMANIA take over the World Wrestling Federation that day, it also marks the beginning of Vince McMahon’s promotion becoming a national (and years later also international) sensation, as opposed to the regional territory thing it had been up till that point.
Regardless if you like the Hulkster or not, literally ALL Pro Wrestling historians, journalists, experts & dirt sheet writers agree, that Hogan put professional wrestling on the map that day. There is nothing left to be added. Period.
