Hulk Hogan is one of the greatest professional wrestlers to ever grace the TV screen. He had generations of children eating out of the palm of his hand. It's no wonder why, he was larger than life, extremely charismatic and easy to get behind.

Not to mention his endearing patriotic attitude. Hogan fought dozens of Superstars on behalf of the Red, White, and Blue. From The Iron Sheik and Nikolai Volkoff to fighting off Muhammad Hassan at WrestleMania 21, Hogan was as American as they came.

Hulk Hogan's also been at the peak of different decades in wrestling. His slamming of Andre the Giant shocked the world and brought professional wrestling into pop culture. The formation of NWO reinvigorated the sport, becoming the driving force behind the Attitude Era and the Monday Night Wars.

The Hulkster is a pop culture icon, but there may still be a few things fans don't know about him.

He's a Real American alright, and as is tradition for most American high school students, he decided to do something quite shocking.

Hogan was a role model for children around the world, making sure they said their prayers and ate their vitamins so they could grow big and strong just like him. However, this may be something he didn't want the little Hulkamaniacs to know about. When he was a junior in high school, he streaked naked across the Robinson High football field where seniors were receiving their diplomas.

Hogan didn't face any punishment for the act, apparently. He wasn't a troubling student, and was genuinely well liked by both staff and students alike, so he got a light slap on the wrist.
