It's the plain truth, brother--Hollywood Hulk Hogan went from a fat, wrestling-obsessed schoolboy to a wealthy, wrestling-obsessed grown man. And it's as plain as back surgery after a body slam that Hulkamania has made its mark on wrestling history. Hulk and his producers seem to have had younger listeners in mind in this breathless telling of Terry Bollea's life as truly foul language and explicit details of violence are skimmed over. Hogan does cop to the entertainment aspect of the matches, after learning the hard, bone-breaking way of the tough gyms. But brother, if you've ever wanted to hear a fun, sanitized view of the wrestling world, give the Hulkster a listen. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
