Hulk made his wrestling debut in the year 1980 against “Andre the Giant” and eventually won the match and gained respect of wrestling fans around the world. It was this sheer popularity that helped Hulk to get cast in the movie “Rocky 3”.

Following “Rocky 3”, Hogan was cast in many other movies like the 1989 wrestling movie “No Holds Barred”.

More pain followed for Hulk with his wife Linda filing for divorce after 24 years of married life.
