Anybody have any info on this? It comes out on August 20th and all I know is that it is a 2 DVD set but that is all the info I've seen so far.

You'll have to look at the physical DVD. The WWF(I refuse to use WWE except if I were reviewing one of their titles) never lists full specs for their DVDs

I hope its akin to the Ultimate Jordan DVD with all his best(and worst) matches featuring "Top 10 Leg Drops"

I can't find any features for this anywhere.

Is there actually a difference in Hogan's matches? He says so himself that he basically throws rights, gets wailed on, hulks up, does the boot, drops the leg and hits the showers

And he's been doing that for 20 years

According to Image Entertainment:
WWE: Hollywood Hulk Hogan: Hulk Still Rules
Release: 8/20/02
Length: 360 minutes
MSRP: $29.99

Synopsis: Before he was the idol of millions, before he was Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Terry Bollea was a fan with a dream. But even he couldn't imagine where that dream would lead. No one in sports-entertainment has had quite the ride that Hollywood Hulk Hogan has. For the past 18 years, he has been the single most recognizable person in all the industry. And for the majority of his 25-year career, he has been on the short list of the game's elite, head-lining wherever he went and creating a cultural movement called Hulkamania in the process. This is his story.

Features: 2-Disc Set; 15 Rare and Classic Matches (240min.) spanning Hollywood Hulk Hogan's entire career, including his debut in 1979; Bonus Interviews

They also have a front cover image posted at Image's site.

Thanks for the info. I think that 1979 debut match was against Ted Dibiase.

Exactly and considering the era in which he wrestled at his prime and his age right now I would not expect much more. Hogans popularity wasn't ever about his wrestling ability but how he could ignite an arena when he walked in. He had the charisma.

I'll get into a million arguments for saying this but the same thing applies to the Rock (and many other wrestlers in the past). I find Rock's matches to be extremely predictable and I don't particularly find him to be that good of a wrestler (Still worlds above Hogan of coursePosted Image, but he was a far far better wrestler when the crowd dispised him as Rocky Maivia) but the man knows how to entertain the crowd with his words and his actions.

If anything I am happy that Hogan is being a team player in the WWF (I too hate that WWE crap). I was loathing his return because of his WCW antics but it was great to see the return of the Hulkster and this time a Hulkster who is actually trying to help the product instead of hinder it.

As for the DVD I'll be picking this one up to add to my collection.

Triple H's "The Game" and The Undertaker's "This is my Yard" DVD's are both excellent as well.

I agree that Hulk is his old self again. I don't hate Hulk Hogan, and frankly I'm finding his matches more entertaining than Rock's right now. Rock just seems to be walking through his career right now, let's see if he really can make it in Hollywood.

Here's the difference. Every Rock match is the same, except occasionally he steals someone old's trademark move that he hasn't stolen before.

Hulk Hogan is always the same, but it's all his own material.

I love Rock, and I've seen some amazing matches out of him. I just wish he'd stop being so lazy

..and thats sad. I know Rock can wrestle. I remember back when Rocky Maivia wrestled "The Sultan" in one of the dumbest angles. The thing is Rock carried that match on his shoulders and showed some excellent wrestling abilities. I think he just fell to main event "syndrome". Get to the top and regurgitate the same match over and over again. (With some rare exceptions of course.)

Steve Austin is another prime example of that. Remember that match a few years ago on Raw between him and Benoit? That was Austin at his finest, showing some true mat wrestling ability that we all know is there. Why not show that kind of wrestling initiative on a regular basis? I suppose once you have the fans screaming "What!" there is no need to...but...

Anyway this is a topic for another thread so back to our regularly scheduled DVD talk.

The match with the 20 German suplexes? That was a great match

But back to the HH DVD, I really wish the WWF would be very specific in their spec listing. I've passed on pre-ordering a whole ton of titles because I have no clue what's on them

I hope that we can get a Ric Flair 2 DVD set too, as well as some Jim Crockett promotions/WCW dvds.

While we're on the topic of old school WWF fans...I REALLY want to see some of the old Wrestlemanias on DVD. Specifically WM4 whcih was the one where they did it in a championship tournament style. I have an original Colesium Home video two VHS tape that I got on ebay about a year ago, but the quality of the first tape is very shoddy, and, well, its VHS! Posted Image

As for this Hogan DVD, if its REALLY 4 hours of Hogan material, I'm all over it.

I'm personally betting on some Wrestlemania collections sooner rather than later

FWIW - Im not sure if prices are welcome here, but playcentric.com has this title up for preodrder for $15.35 plus free U.S. shipping right now.

And I certainly hope they dont just release collections of Wrestlemania's, I want the whole thing that was included on the video tape, including the preshow montage, all the Bob Eucker stuff, etc.

Pre-ordered my copy a few days ago (thanks to this thread). Count me in as one that can't wait to go through these discs! I'm really surprised they're including so many rare & great matches...I'm one happy Hulkamaniac! Posted Image

If that list of extras is true, this will be one great DVD. The Hogan-Andre match from 1980 maybe the most rare of Hogan matches, because during the 80's, The WWF never acknowleged this match ever taking place.

Also, I'm wondering about the All-Star Wrestling appearance. Is this the AWA program? If it is, this is another rarity.
