Hulk Hogan The Iron Sheik WWE

WWE Champion

23 Jan, 1984

Hogan defeats Iron Sheik to claim his first WWE championship, kick-starting the Hulkamania craze of the 1980’s.

He was good. Hogan was a big man, he had a bodybuilder body and charisma. I had so much hate, people want to hurt me wherever I go. He win and make all his All-American fans happy. Since then he become Hulkamania, but everybody remember, without Iron Sheik, no Hulkamania.
