The Most Ridiculous Lies Hulk Hogan Has Ever Told

The Most Ridiculous Lies Hulk Hogan Has Ever Told

Hulk Hogan is known for telling some of the most ridiculous lies in wrestling history. The Hulkster’s fibs ranged from claiming he wanted to put someone over and feigning injury to movie role offers and being a world class bassist and sports star.

Despite having huge matches with stars like Andre the Giant, Goldberg, Sting and Randy Savage, and becoming the biggest wrestler of all time, he still feels the need to over-exaggerate and straight up lie about his life, which is very sad if you think about it.

Nothing that comes out of his mouth can be trusted, although everything he says is hilarious. Here, we’ve put together a list of Hulk Hogan’s lies and found the most ridiculous and obviously untrue ones for you to laugh at. Comment down below your favourite one and let us know any we may have missed.

  • The Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky offered him the lead role three times. Hogan claims he turned it down because “he didn’t deserve it”. Aronofsky categorically denies that Hogan was ever even considered for the role.
  • He was an all-state pitcher in high school, and that he was scouted by both the New York Yankees and the Cincinnati Reds, but an injury prevented him from signing with either team. (Likely a shot at Randy Savage, who actually did play baseball – see below)
  • Hogan claimed to have discovered Kevin Owens for WWE – a decade after he began wrestling. Owens has never mentioned meeting Hogan prior to WWE.
  • Hogan starred in Mr. Nanny & Santa With Muscles. Hogan claims he rewrote both scripts entirely, only to have his writing credits stolen from him by the dastardly Writers’ Guild.
  • Hogan says he used to fight Pride fighters in the ’70s. Pride Fighting Championships was founded in 1997 and Hogan has never fought in an MMA match in his life
  • He claimed was the first to slam Andre, that Andre weighed 600 pounds when Hogan bodyslammed him, and the lie that Andre died a few days after the slam. Big John Studd, Harley Race and a number of other wrestlers had slammed Andre the Giant before him, as he was known as a very giving worker. The number of fans in attendance during the match also seems to go up every time he tells the story
  • He partied with John Belushi after Wrestlemania II in 1986. Belushi died in 1982
  • He was meant to fight Mike Tyson in WCW. However, the baddest man on the planet was too scared and pulled out of the match, later signing for WWE.
  • Hulk Hogan did claim that, back in his heyday, he wrestled in 400 days in one year. This may make no sense, but obviously Hogan knows best. He would travel from the United States to Japan and back, and due to the time difference would wrestle on multiple days per day (no, me neither).
  • In Hulk Hogan’s autobiography he made the claim that Elvis was a huge Hogan fan before Hogan joined the WWF. He did work in Memphis in 1977, however Elvis died in 1977.
  • He said he wanted to drop the title to Piper in 1985, but he didn’t think Piper would be willing to lose it back to him. Hogan has never wanted to lose to anyone (Except Goldberg, somehow)
  • He has never used steroid (yeah, right)
  • Hogan claimed that he and Antonio Inoki had a match in Japan where Hogan beat him up so badly he died, but got brought back to life via CPR after the match, but Hulk couldn’t work in Japan for a while after because the Yakuza were after him.
  • He was asked to play bass for Metallica but turned them down. The band categorical refuted this rumour and said they never met Hulk Hogan.
  • Hogan claimed that he tore all the muscles in his back after slamming Andre before he immediately flew to Japan for a 29-day straight tour. There is no record of Hulk Hogan wrestling in Japan from 1986-1992.
  • He claimed that for she was paying off two cars at the same time as a teenager and he had a hell of a credit score because of it. Credit scores weren’t introduced until 1989, when Hogan was a multi-millionaire superstar
