It Came From YouTube: Hulk Hogan joins the dark side. Well, he wears a lot of black, anyway…

Crapper Pretentious internet Theatre dug deep into WCW obscurity with this clip and writes:

I found this weird clip of pre-nWo dark side Hogan.

By the way, if the Dungeon of Doom’s mission was to rid WCW of Hulkamania, and Hogan formed the nWo didn’t that mean they were successful?
He went by Hollywood, and I remember Hulking up didn’t seem to work for him.

Hmmm… That’s a good point!

Man; I forgot how goofy he looked here.

Nice “Phantom Of The Dumbass” mask, Hulk…

He’d also come out wearing all black and be all psedo-evil… Well, he was more emo than evil, actually. He probably wrote sad poetry in his Hulk Hogan notebook when he got backstage.

Then, after his PPV match with the Dungeon Of Doom, he turned full-on face again with the red and the yellow until the real heel turn later on when he joined the NWO.

I guess WCW was testing the waters for a Hogan heel run? I seem to recall this went over about as well as a fart in church.

Anyway; thanks for the submission, Pretentious internet Theatre!

    Very bizarre idea they had with Hogan.

  2. Wrestlecrap's Janitor says:

    I remember this. So damn stupid. If he were testing the waters to make people hate him, well, he was a smashing success here.

  3. Raven7309 says:

    It’s funny that this was posted just 2 days after I watched the 2nd disc of the Big Snow dvd and there’s a match with him and Hogan after Hogan went to the “dark side.”
    Bonus Wrestlecrap moment: The monster truck sumo match is included on the disc in all its craptacular glory.

    Warrior must’ve been the speech writer.

    Sweet deuschbag of the opera costume

  6. Dave says:

    It’s the Dread Pirate Hulkster!

    It’s funny how he doesn’t have his mustache here and yet it still kind of looks like he does.

    • Alan says:

      I remember Kevin Sullivan shaving off Hogan’s moustache. This was a horrible angle. He ended up becoming a face again after burning his black attire in a barrel at the First World War 3. Oh, the stupidity!

    Y’know, say what you want about Hogan (no really, say what you want – I’m no Hulkamaniac), but it’s really hard to sell “the training, the prayers and the vitamins” whilst wearing a half-assed Zorro costume in a high-school play (at best) quality cemetery background…
