The Enduring Legacy of
HULK HOGAN (Part 30)
In truly cowardly fashion, Earthquake attacked the Hulkster from behind. If that wasn’t
bad enough, Earthquake used a steel chair in his attack, quickly laying Hogan out. From there, he proceeded to deliver sit-down splash after sit-down splash to Hogan, until WWF referees were finally able to keep the monster at bay. Even though Earthquake was forced to stop his attack, Hogan was seriously injured. Medical crews came out and placed Hulk Hogan on a stretcher.
A hush fell over the audience as they watched Hogan being carried out. While there was no immediate way to gauge the extent of Hogan’s injuries, things looked bleak.
Earthquake and Jimmy Hart wasted no time in claiming credit for ending the Hulkster’s
career. On the June 2, 1990, edition of WWF Superstars and the June 3, 1990, edition of
Wrestling Challenge, promos aired of both men boasting of Earthquake’s attack on the Hulkster. The wrestling world watched and waited to see what developed.
