I can't really argue against it. He might be a self-centred, ego-maniacal prick, but he's the self-centred, ego-maniacal prick who put wrestling on the map. He turned wrestling into a global juggernaut and is one of the two most instantly recognisable faces in wrestling history (the other being Steve Austin, who I have no doubts will also get in). The best choice for your first inductee.

I've never been the biggest fan of Hulk Hogan, but it would be foolish to dismiss his contributions to the business. However, the best of the best? I hardly think so. That honor would most likely go to Ric Flair or Lou Thesz, in my humble opinion.

It's been said, but a hall of fame is not a listing of the top wrestlers in 2011. Some of the future inductees are guys you probably have never even heard of.

To be honest i've lost most respect I had for him since he's became an asshole in real life and destroyed a compny but theres no denying what he's done for the buisness. He was definetly the most popular wrestler of the 80's no doubt and it's hard to argue the most popular of ALL time.

IMO He is definetly a great first induction to the WZ hall of fame. Why not start with the most legendary/over wrestler ever? He's done so much for the buisness and single- handedly made wrestlemania a household name. Hogan IS wrestling.

This is coming from a person who dislikes Hulk.+=

But thats for a different thread. He's the most logical choice for first inductee...

Pick your favorite wrestler... If he is what he is today he owes Hogan for that. Not his accomplishments, not his talent, but his popularity! Simple as that!

You might have ended up not knowing your favorite wrestler at all if we didn't have all the media for Wrestling Entertainment. We might only have indy promotions who were organizing wrestling in their own states. I, someone from Australia would probably never hear any of them. That idea belongs to VKM, but if you don't have the right guy there is no point. If anyone else could have done it we wouldn't need to wait till 1984 for a worldwide Icon.

And that's right, he is past his prime and he isn't #1 wrestler anymore, so put Cena as the first HOF inductee. Next year put the Miz. Here is a HOF for you...

He may be an asshole in real life, be desperately clinging onto every scrap of fame and refusing to leave the spotlight.

But lets think this through

Is there any single performer who did more than Hulk Hogan to move wrestling out of the smoky halls and into the big arenas? Is there any wrestler more recognisable to the public than the Hulkster. Is there any wrestler who have EVER been a bigger draw than Hulk Hogan

The answer is no. Hulk Hogan is the one performer who carried the WWE for years. He remained a HUGE draw for several decades and is correctly the 1st inductee into the HOF.

Good choice JGlass

Honestly, I've always felt that it was as simple as "Hogan beat Randy Polo and Ultimate Warrior to the punch" and until you can prove it otherwise, I will stand by my answer. Why is that?

It's simple Hogan, Savage, and Warrior are/were pro-wrestling's power of three (charmed anybody?). If Hogan hadn't made wrestling popular, then Savage and Warrior would have.

That said, I will agree that via luck of the draw, Hogan is indeed one of the people to put into the hall of fame and not only that, but he deserves the number one spot. He did take a regional "sport" and turned it into a global phenomenon and has out sold more numbers than anybody on the planet at that time... Including actors! Hogan's accolades speak for themselves. WCW and WWE... he's held both respective top titles and he will forever be recognized as the symbol of pro-wrestling just like John Madden will be for football, even though Madden was more a coach.

Of course Hogan deserves the accolade, people may insult his work in TNA but if they're honest with themselves they'll know that the reactions that the Rock and Stone Cold received when they made their returns preWM would be the equivalent of watching snooker fans compared to what would happen if 'Real American' followed by an immortal in Red & Yellow (although I'd hope he'd get rid of the feather boa, as that was SO Rip Rogers) was to blast out.

Hogan deserves this more than any wrestler. He is the biggest star in wrestling history by wide margins, and without him this forum probably wouldn't be here, and most of us wouldn't be interested in wrestling. He truly brought wrestling to the next level, and in doing this has become a household name. He is simply put the biggest star wrestling has ever had. After twenty some years when you ask people who don't follow the sport to name a wrestler, they will say Hogan. Nobody deserves the first induction more than Hogan.

No matter from which way you look at it, Hogan has accomplished a lot and most certainly deserves to be in any sort of legit wrestling HOF. He helped revolutionize the industry and helped it become mainstream. Had it not been for him, who knows what we'd be watching every Monday night or Thursday night. Hell, if it wasn't for him many of the wrestler who he inspired to follow in his footsteps might not even be involved within this industry in any sort of way. I would love to debate anyone who thinks he shouldn't be inducted because I would gladly prove them wrong.
i was answering the questions dude so like calm yourself down. im not saying he didnt do alot but he has tarnished his name and i really dont care what any of you have to say about my opinion cause i dont overly care. sorry.

I think Hogan should not be inducted in the HOF wether it's the WWE HOF or Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame (PWHF) and no offense to Hogan Fans but the thing is even though he contributed so many things, still we cannot erase the FACT that if it weren't for the script writers he's not big as what he is way back in 80's till early 00's! He even bite the hands that fed him and his family way back 90's during the "Steriods" issue and testify against McMahon proving that he's an a**hole and I guess he realize what he did and testify that McMahon never sold it (Steroid) to him or forced him to use it. He then transferred to WCW, what kind of a man he is? He committed countless pain in the a** moves and mistakes in his life and if ever that there's a chance that I can induct him to HOF it is gonna be the Hall of Fame for Ego-Maniac and Self-Centered No Hair Freakazoid!

p.s he even consulted a doctor after WWE HOF 2008 because of The Rock regarding the things that the Great One's said during the event.
