The 30 Years of Hulkamania banner that was raised in Madison Square Garden last Friday during the Hulk Hogan Appreciation Night is gone from the world’s most famous arena after it was revealed that the raising of the banner was just part of the show!
The red and yellow banner was raised and placed in between the New York Knicks and New York Liberty banners that hang from the rafters and stayed there throughout the show. Reports from inside the building the next day said that the banner was gone after the show was over even though WWE played it like the banner was there to stay.
On March 1, the WWE Twitter account posted a photo of the banner hanging with the text, “This banner forever hangs in the rafters of @TheGarden…BROTHER! @HulkHogan #WWEMSG,” even though the company apparently knew beforehand that the banner was not staying.
Business Insider reached out to WWE to ask them about the banner and they confirmed that the banner was only there for that night. “”The banner was a part of our show and was never intended to stay at MSG,” a short statement read.
