Hulk Hogan, a WWE Hall of Famer and one of the most influential figures in professional wrestling, has recently found himself in the midst of controversy. Accusations have surfaced suggesting that Hogan injured a referee during a botched spot, adding another chapter to the storied career of this iconic wrestler.
Hogan’s name is synonymous with the world of wrestling, having achieved incredible success and leaving an indelible mark on the industry. However, his career has not been without its fair share of ups and downs, and his behavior both inside and outside the ring has often raised eyebrows.
In a recent episode of Road Trip After Hours with WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long and Mac Davis, referee Earl Hebner shed light on an incident involving Hogan during a match against Andre the Giant for the World Heavyweight Championship in February 1988. Hebner, who was impersonating his late twin brother Dave Hebner, revealed that Hogan deviated from the planned spot and ended up injuring him.
Hebner recalled the incident, explaining how they had practiced the move repeatedly before the match. However, when Hogan picked him up as part of the spot, things didn’t go according to plan. In that split second, Hebner realized that the move was not what they had rehearsed.
The wrestler, known for his immense strength, launched Hebner out of the ring. Instead of throwing him to the awaiting Ted DiBiase, Virgil, and Andre, Hogan propelled him towards the tenth row of the audience. Hebner found himself hurtling through the air, and upon impact with the ground, he suffered a crushed rotator cuff in his shoulder. Despite the injury, Hebner’s adrenaline kept him from immediately realizing the severity of the situation.
