Life of Hulkamania Brings Down Terry Bollea


Terry "Hulk Hogan" Bollea has had quite a rough stretch lately.

This has not been a secret as the "Hulkster" has seen his life crumble before him as if he were in the fist of the late great, Andre The Giant. Hogan has experienced the canceling of his TV show, Hogan Knows Best, a messy and public divorce, various scandals regarding his newest lady Hulkamaniac, witnessing his son being sent to jail, and a potential life altering lawsuit. It's been very rough to say the least.

Many have sympathized with Hogan, and have shown their support for him in many ways. Although, any individual experiencing such a downward spiral deserves sympathy and support, this situation has been coming for a long time. It was as obvious as the finish to any of Hogan's matches or any major wrestling event in the late 80's-early 90's. Except this time, the finish was very different. This time, Hogan is the one that has been defeated.

As the old saying goes, what goes around, comes around.

Hogan, arguably the most successful and well known professional wrestler in the history of the industry, has never given back to the industry that has helped make him the superstar that he has become. Some in the professional wrestling circles have drawn comparisons to Jose Canseco. Hogan chose to take the path of being "bigger than the industry" and sometimes even tearing it down. He has never helped develop new talent or done as much as help make the next Hulk Hogan. He has always claims that Andre helped make him a superstar via their Wrestlemania III match. Which begs the question, who has Hogan helped?

Now you may be saying, "that's pretty shallow to base his troubles on him not giving back to the wrestling industry", but Hogan has other strikes against him that have marked him as a man. Hogan's stunts regarding exploiting his family and kids via his reality (fake) show on VH1, lack of respect for the Graziano Family (who now has a family member forever in a vegetative state), cheating on his wife, and his latest comments to his son in jail on planning a new reality show once Nick Bollea is released, are examples of the extent Hogan has stooped to. Amongst his peers, Hogan has always been seen as an egotistical, selfish, human being that has been wrapped up in Hulk Hogan, and not Terry Bollea.

Fame is an addicting drug.

The hatred for Hogan is pretty transparent by yours truly, however, no man deserves what he has gone through. He has experienced more than one individual should be able to take in such a short amount of time. The strength he has shown to hold up and face it all-I tip my cap to him.

He certainly doesn't deserve this. After pony backing his legacy as a wrestling superstar, which has almost been elapsed by the recently retired (and greatest wrestler of all-time) Ric Flair, Hogan has officially lost it all.

Yup, Terry Bollea didn't deserve this. However, we all saw it coming. Every single one of us.

For the first time in his life, Terry Bollea should be the one who is asked, "What's he going to do, when the foundation of Hulkamania he laid for his entire life, comes crashing through. Brother."

Impact Wrestling OverDrive 2022 Review: "Impact is Toast...You Know What You're Getting"

Impact Wrestling pay-per-views (or special events) in 2022 aren't just the biggest kept secret in the professional wrestling world, but they've also been the most underrated positive within pro wrestling going forward. Much of what Scott D'Amore and company have done this year should be celebrated. The product hasn't always been a must-see, but at the same time, it hasn't been terrible. Impact is toast. You know what you're getting. It's not fancy, but you know what you're getting. And in various forms, it can be amazing.  Bad analogies aside, Impact Wrestling wrapped up 2022 with yet another banger in OverDrive. The mini-big shows have really become a nice touch for the company in moving their storylines along, and at times, allowing the ability to give focus and opportunity to characters and talent to be highlighted. It's been a long road since this company was generating One Night Only shows that meant and felt like, well, impactless.  Nonetheless

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/27/22

3 Up 1. Thomas James & Richard Fierro - Despite the horror of the recent shooting at the Colorado Night Club, I would be remiss if I didn't give props - and the top "Up" spot - to these two gentlemen who not only served our country in the military at one point in their lives, but also saved many more by taking down the shooter at Club Q.  Much respect. Much appreciation.  2. Olivia Pichardo - Does anyone know how difficult D1 baseball is? I don't think many know, understand it, or appreciate it. What Olivia Pichardo has accomplished as a freshmen at Brown University by becoming the first woman to make the roster of a D1 baseball team is damn impressive. She also did it as a walk-on. Wow! 3. Thanksgiving/Holiday Weekend - Whether you celebrated Thanksgiving, or just enjoyed the days off in appreciation of your family and gratitude, I hope the days off were a good one for you and yours.  3 Down 1. Mass Shootings - I can't say anything else on these. They just n

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Life Itself (2018)

Who is in it?  The happenstance and journey of a young New York City couple cause a reverberation of several instances and effects that echos and effects several others through various generations.  What is it about? Oscar Isaac - Will Olivia Wilde - Abby Olivia Cooke - Dylan Sergio Peris-Mencheta - Javier Gonzalez Laia Costa - Isabel Diaz Antonio Banderas - Mr. Saccione Favorite Scene:   The alternate scene from the original bedroom scene between Will and Abby shows a different version of what happened with the exact words used, just a different tone - indicating that life itself isn't the greatest narrator, and we all have our own versions of a story that is possibly part of a bigger story.  Favorite Quote:  "I crave a happy life, grandpa. I have an almost desperate craving for stability and happiness like fat people crave chocolate or lost hikers crave rescue. I want to live a big, great, fantastical life, but I am concerned that the tragedy that seems to follow me, the tra

Survivor Series 2022 Review: "Served it's Purpose" on Thanksgiving Weekend

There was something especially "traditional" about the Survivor Series happening over Thanksgiving weekend that added to the intrigue and the overall aura of the event. Something that felt well, overall anticipatory and "right" for a wrestling event on a Thanksgiving Saturday night (you know, if that's a thing going forward - maybe?). Of course, all of this is ironic considering this Survivor Series event took a break from the historical concept of the 5-on-5 survivor tag-team format for the much more WCW-ish, "War Games". As Triple H (or do we call him Paul, now? Mr. LeVeque? Mr. Triple H? Mr. Helmsley?) noted in the post-show press conference, the break was indeed a nice change of pace, allowing the old format to take a breather and gain some nostalgic interest for the events to come.  Nonetheless, Survivor Series was welcomed and it was a good show. For me, the War Games matches were there and were entertaining. Everyone in those matches felt like t
