Wrestler Wisdom Fridays #23

 

 

Each week, the ISB endeavors to enlighten our readers by offering the unedited words of the Warrior Scholars of the squared circle, for who among us cannot benefit from the wisdom of Macho Madness, Hulkamania, or the American Dream? The instruction we offer should be considered carefully, meditated on, and applied to one’s own life for the enrichment of the self and others.

  1. Oh my god, this is the most 80s-tastic one so far. I hope the U. S. Geology Survey is aware of this fault line.

  2. If they’re hanging onto his back (largest in the world or not) and he does the backstroke… Won’t they drown?

  3. “If they’re hanging onto his back (largest in the world or not) and he does the backstroke… Won’t they drown?”

    Even worse, he started with ‘dogpaddle’ but then corrected himself and said ‘backstroke’.

  4. Ah, messianic Hogan. I sort of miss him a little bit. Especially compared to that decrepit old guy who’s hanging out at that retirement home in Orlando using his name these days.

  5. Hulk is like 3-4 inches shorter today than he was in his prime, due to his spine fusing in various places. Guys who’ve seen him say his hands go down to his knees.

    Yes, I know this has nothing to do with his wisdom.

  6. You know Hogan went from excitable good guy to insane coked up rambler so slowly i bet no one even noticed the change back in the day…

  7. I think everyone in the WWF was ton busy counting their money to care. Or too coked up.

  8. That is, straight up, my favorite promo of all-time. The best part is at the end where Hogan starts backstroking around Mean Gene and right off camera.

  9. My favorite Hogan promo is where he points at his palm and says “THIS IS WHERE THE POWER LIES, BROTHER!” a few times.
