Hulk Hogan WWE

3rd WWE Championship

24 Mar, 1991

Hogan defeats Sgt. Slaughter at Wrestlemania VII to capture his third WWE championship. Slaughter comments.

McMahon needed an opponent for Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania and wanted to keep Hogan as the hero. So he asked me if I would consider me being an Iraqi sympathizer. I had to think long and hard about it. It was hard because red, white and blue runs through my veins. There were a lot of situations where I had to forgive myself and I hoped everyone would forgive me.
