5 WWE Superstars who have released music albums
- A surprising number of WWE performers -- past and present -- have been part of ambitious musical projects
#3: Hulk Hogan
Hulk Hogan stands out from most other professional wrestlers in being one of the few wrestlers that non-wrestling fans can easily recognize. Hogan starred in movies, regularly appeared on television, and was often used to endorse non-wrestling products.
Hogan is further distinct in having been part of multiple musical projects, having done so before, during and after his major WWE run. Interestingly, Hogan was a bass player in Florida bands prior to becoming a professional wrestler. Hulk Hogan & Itch-Band released an EP targeting the Japanese wrestling audience in 1983. Hulk Hogan and The Wrestling Boot Band released the Hulk Rules album in 1995.
Currently, there are rumours of Hogan making a return to WWE as based on backstage rumours of him appearing before a recent pay-per-view to address current WWE talent. Within the past week, Hogan's merchandise store in Orlando, Florida had a camera crew and his NWO teammates Kevin Nash and Scott Hall present for some filming, suggesting that an NWO appearance of some sort within the WWE world is imminent. No matter what lies ahead for Hogan within the wrestling world, his studio albums remain out of print as of this article's writing.Published 06 Aug 2018, 12:08 IST
