You know, I’m a proud Hulkamaniac. Have been since around 86. Then, I turned into a giant Ultimate Warrior fan.
Chris Hemsworth bulking up to play the immortal, Hulk Hogan.
I’ll never forget it. It must have been 1989, maybe 1990. My Mom and aunt took my brother and me to El Paso, TX to see a WWF live event. The main event was Mr. Perfect vs. The Ultimate Warrior. I was in heaven. Also, I saw the Bushwackers, Hacksaw Jim, and a whole bunch of others. It was pretty sweet.
I would go to a few other wrestling events, but I never had the pleasure of watching Hogan wrastle anyone. However, I did see the great, “Nature Boy,” Ric Flair, wooooooooooooooooooooo!
Personally, I think they should have made a biopic on Flair before Hogan. What can you do?
The film will follow Hogans’s rise to stardom in the 1980s. No word yet on a release date. Hemsworth has said that his gym sessions are more intense than they were when he was training to play, “Thor.” It takes a lot of work to develop those 24-inch pythons, brother.
