Can someone provide evidence to me that "Hogan can't climb a ladder" was ever used in the tourney?
I always remembered it as he couldn't climb a cage. Somewhere over time that morphed into a ladder.
Jokes were made in the Andre ladder match in 2013.
In 2011 he has Edge in a TLC match and Sly says "Let's see, so now we're saying Hulk Hogan can't climb a fucking ladder?" but no one in the thread said that. One or two said he'd be slower than Edge but everyone says he'd climb the ladder.
So it has to be before 2013 and it's not the 2011 tourney.
So it's not the 4th or 3rd tourney either. There's a possibility it's the second as Hogan's match isn't there.
So if it is indeed cage/ladder it's either the first or second tourney.
However I don't think this ever occurred. 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th are clear of it and and the 7th makes jokes about it.
Thus Lee has mythbusted a forum urban legend.

I don't believe so as it's during the pedantic multi quote a post stage of the forum so the quote would show.
A mod can check through the WZ tourney 2011 match TLC Hogan v Edge to check if that is the case or not.
Maybe it was "he can climb a cage so he can climb a ladder."
The thing I remember hearing was that Andre couldn't climb a ladder.
And that Punk could incapacitate him with kicks to the head/get Andre to chase him out of the arena and then run back to climb the ladder and win.
I thought the whole argument started with Andre as well but I probably wasn't paying attention in 2011.
Opening line of that match:
If you vote for CM Punk because you think Andre cannot climb a ladder, I will ban you.
The Hogan thing is later mentioned in this thread:
So it's before the Andre ladder match.
Can't imagine anyone in that thread propping up a strawman. Nope. Impossible.
The argument was that Hogan couldn't climb a cage, From this thread...
That's right. Benoit beat Hogan. Lost to Dean Ambrose this year. It was Sting that couldn't climb a ladder. Which eventually morphed into Andre not being able to climb ladders.
It has no deleted posts.
I stand by Andre not being able to climb a ladder for at least 2/3 of his career. If that seems idiotic, imagine Andre actually agreeing to be in a ladder match.
It's a valid argument when you're dealing with wrestlers afraid to leave their feet.
In the first tournament AJ Styles defeated Hulk Hogan( in MSG ) in a ladder match. Some posted like this...
I'm trying to figure out why that guy assumes Hogan is going to have so much trouble climbing a ladder. Hogan has climbed a steel cage, don't know that a ladder is more challenging.
