Hogan, Sheik, remember the changing of the guard at MSG on January 23, 1984

There are several dates in professional wrestling which could be considered as being somewhat historic, but only a true handful defined the shape of the business.

29 years ago today, on January 23, 1984, professional wrestling got its biggest kick start when Hulk Hogan defeated the Iron Sheik at Madison Square Garden to win the WWF title. On that day, Hulkamania was born, and as they say, the rest is history.

On Twitter, the WWE Hall of Famer and now TNA personality Hulk Hogan mentioned the historic date.

“29yrs ago humbled the curley toed jabronie in MSG and changed the world of pro wrestling forever brother,let the entertainment begin HH4life,” Hogan wrote.

Sheik also took it to Twitter to respond to Hogan’s comment.

“29 year ago I make the hulkamania hulkamania. If no Iron Sheik they never be the Hulk Hogan,” he replied.

Sheiky then turned to his usual funny self, bashing Hogan for having a “rice crispy dick” and for being a “no good [email protected]#er.”
