Here is a list of reasons as to why many people in the wrestling industry don’t have many good things to say about The Hulkster.
1985 – Would Hogan be willing to work a program with Rick Steamboat if Steamboat agreed to turn heel? No. Give him Big John Studd instead.
1986 – Hogan-Savage is tentatively planned for WM 2, after the two had feuded in house shows which Savage had won by DQ or countout. Hogan nixes the idea of facing the dynamic, atheltic Savage at ‘Mania, even though he would be booked to win. Hogan handpicks King Kong Bundy to embarass in a cage match. Savage wrestles George Steele far down the undercard.
1986 - Hogan agrees to work with Paul Orndorff, but won’t do the job to him. Hogan agrees only because he is guaranteed a win at a huge event. He defeats Orndorff in a cage match on SNME to end the feud.
1987 - Hogan again turns down the idea of feuding with Savage; but suggests turning him face, so Hogan can step aside for awhile, film a movie and get some needed rest. Savage turns face that summer.
1988 – Hogan agrees to “drop” the belt to Andre, but only under questionable circumstances to preserve his character. Hogan agrees to “give the rub” to Savage at WM IV. Hogan only agrees because he is promised he will get the title back at WM 5.
1988 - Six months later, as Savage is having a successful run, Hogan suggests putting them together as a team “Mega Powers” and they headline Summerslam. Hogan is no longer the champion – but still in the main event.
1989 - Hogan finally meets Savage at Wrestlemania V. Hogan beats him for the title. Rather than face Savage in the anticipated rematch at Summerslam, or a program with Rick Rude as creative suggests – Hogan decides to go a different route. Hogan suggests a tag team match, pitting himself and his close friend Brutus Beefcake, against Savage and an ACTOR, Tiny Lister who played Zeus in the Hogan film “No Holds Barred”. The film opened that summer to decent business, so Hogan uses a WWE PPV to promote the film, while “giving the rub” to his friend Beefcake.

Reggie Bush vs UCLA 2005
Mike Tyson vs Trevor Berbick 1986
Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 1 reads: “If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball throughout the process of contacting the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete.”
Boston Celtics – 8 Consecutive NBA Titles
Winning one NBA Title is impressive, but winning eight consecutive NBA Titles is astonishing. The Celtics dominated the NBA during the 1960s and won a championship every year from 1959-1966. When the Chicago Bulls (1996-1998) and Los Angeles Lakers (2000-2002) each won 3 championships in a row, it was a big deal. Yet neither of them came close to doing what the Celtics accomplished. With the NBA now in a salary cap system, there is too much parity across the league for a single team to go on an 8-year title run. Also, there is a lot of pressure on teams trying to repeat as champions. The Miami Heat are already feeling the heat and they have only won two in a row. Unless the NBA abolishes the salary cap and allows superstars to team up, the Celtics record will never be broken.
