For over two decades the name Hulk Hogan has been synonymous with sports entertainment and professional wrestling. Having set live attendance records all over the world including a live gate of more than 96,000 fans at the Pontiac Silverdome, Hulk Hogan has set his sites on Australia as his next frontier.
Hulk made a quick visit to Australia last week and caught a few footy games while he was here.
“Australia is such a beautiful country with beautiful people,” said Hogan. “My fans in Australia are so loyal, I am so glad that we can finally bring Hulkamania to them”
HULKAMANIA will also include state of the art production; the arenas will be plastered with large screens to show the audience what is happening back stage in between wrestling matches. The night will also contain audience participation, a huge pyrotechnics display and more.
From his early beginnings as a young wrestler training under the tutelage of the famed Hiro Matsuda who intentionally broke Hulk Hogan’s leg on his first day of training just to test his desire, Hulk Hogan’s larger that life persona and matching arms have turned the industry into the phenomenon it is today.
Also known as The Nature Boy, Ric Flair is among the most well known wrestlers in the world, and is one of wrestling’s biggest stars.

Aumaga is prepared to run over the competition in Australia. This seemingly uncontrollable savage loves to inflict pain on his opponents, and has left a large wake of destruction behind him thanks to his devastating and debilitating Samoan Spike. Darkness will spread in the arenas of Australia when Vampire Warrior’s sinister presence is made.
Vampire Warrior formed a faction known as “The Brood” along with “Edge”
and “Christian.” The trio eventually became part of “The Ministry Of Darkness” under the rule of “The Undertaker.”
