Hulk Hogan remains one of the most popular pro wrestlers in the world of professional wrestling, with his influence in the business never being understated. However, his troubled past concerning racism has ultimately led to his downfall. Hulk Hogan was booed at WrestleMania 37 when he was introduced with Titus O’Neil as the hosts of the pay-per-view, which all stemmed from him using racial slurs in a leaked 2015 sex tape.

In 1990, The Ultimat Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan at WWE’s biggest event of the year to win the WWE Championship. He later found out that The Hulkster earned $1 million for the match, while he was only paid $500,000. While speaking n a “Title Match Wrestling” video, Len Denton, formerly known as The Grappler, recalled how Warrior informed him of his plans to quit due to Hulk Hogan’s WrestleMania payday.
“‘I’m quitting this son of a b***h,’” Denton said, quoting Warrior. “I go, ‘Why?’ He goes, ‘They screwed me over, man. The last WrestleMania, I’m the world champ, you know what they paid Hogan? A million dollars. You know what they paid me? $500,000. That’s bulls**t, man, I’m outta here.’”
