So the Hulk in Hulk Hogan came from....

  1. ...a local area talk show he was on with Lou Ferrigno? Who, for all you youngins, was the guy playing the incredible hulk in the old 70s tv show. This is from Wikipedia so take it for what you will, but I always wondered if Hogan got that title from the comic book character.


    Wikipedia excerpt (open)
    Hogan appeared on a local talk show, where he sat beside Lou Ferrigno, star of the television series The Incredible Hulk. The host commented on how Terry, who stood 6 ft 7 in (201 cm) and weighed 295 pounds with 24 inch biceps, actually dwarfed "The Hulk." Watching the show backstage, Mary Jarrett noticed that Hogan was actually bigger than Ferrigno, who was well known at the time for having large muscles. As a result, Bollea began performing as Terry "The Hulk" Boulder
