WWE celebrates Hulk Hogan at Madison Square Garden

WWE celebrated Hulk Hogan and Hulkamania yesterday at Madison Square Garden during a non-televised live event billed as Hulk Hogan Appreciation Night.

Jimmy Hart was the first one out to talk about Hogan and was then followed by Scott Hall and Kevin Nash who came out to the iconic nWo theme song. After taking a couple of surveys, Nash then introduced WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan to the ring, who came out to a thunderous pop.

Fellow Hall of Famer Ric Flair came out after Hogan and talked how the two wrestled all around the world but it was only until Flair came to WWE that he faced with Hogan. Flair then cried when he talked about when his son died and Hogan was one of the first who called and that’s when he learned that you can always count on Hogan.

A video with interviews from current and former WWE Superstars then aired all talking about Hogan and after that was over Triple H came out with the SVP of Madison Square Garden and an MSG photographer. HHH put over Hogan for all he did in the business and then MSG officials presented Hogan with a portrait of picture that was taken at WrestleMania I.

Hogan then took over the mic and thanked everyone in the building for coming and everyone at WWE for what they did to him. He thanked Triple H for opening the WWE door for him and said he liked being back home where he belongs.

After another video ran, Madison Square Garden then raised a Hulkamania banner to the rafters next to other banners celebrating 30 years of Hulkamania in Madsion Square Garden, giving Hogan a permanent place at the world’s most famous arena.
