Hulk Hogan is one of the most successful pro wrestlers in the world. Apart from being one of the most popular pro wrestlers, he is also popular all around the world. Thus, he is not a stranger to several celebrities and individuals, including Joe Rogan.
In one episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan recalled his interview with Hulk Hogan during a UFC event. During his interview with Rogan, The Hulkster talked about his official TNA (now known as Impact Wrestling) debut.
Recalling his experience of interviewing Hulk Hogan on The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan said, “I got a chance to interview him [Hulk Hogan] for Spike TV back in the day when Spike TV went into the wrestling business. For me as a kid, I was a giant fan of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka and Bob Backlund when I was in high school in the 80s and Hulk Hogan.”
“I was like a little kid there. I was so happy,” he added. It seems Rogan is one of several Hulk Hogan admirers.
Hogan had multiple spells in WWE and is a WWE legend. But he also competed in several other promotions, including TNA (Impact Wrestling) and WCW.
