Worst: Hulk Hogan Is The Worst Wrestler Of All Time And Also Maybe The Worst Person In Human History

So, this is how Nitro starts.

Hulk Hogan faces Arn Anderson and Kevin Sullivan in a handicap match, with the stipulation that if Hogan can somehow find a way to win (LOL) he’ll get “five minutes alone” with his a manager of his choice. Hogan wins the match clean with almost no effort whatsoever, atomic dropping Arn so hard it ruptures his entire spinal column and puts him in a coma and bodyslamming slash leg-dropping Sullivan. Surprisingly, “Hogan beats two top heels by himself without trying” is the least infuriating aspect of this match.
