Hulk Hogan beat many wrestlers, including legendary finishers. Leg Drop is iconic and one of the most famous wrestling finishers of all time. When he listens to crowed, he takes some momentum from the ring, jumps on his opponent, drops his leg on the opponent’s neck, and it’s game over for his opponent. After asking who told him to do that or whose idea was to choose the leg drop finisher, Hogan said it was me!

Hogan said:

I was doing it in Japan I went over to Japan with Freddy blassie the first couple times were in some small town like Kumamoto I was going to the top rope and dropped my leg off the top rope and Blassie goes You don’t to do that over here you’re a big man you shouldn’t go to the top rope yours 335 pounds

So you just have to ask yourself, “What’cha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild on you?” —the answer is that Hogan’s influence and legacy will continue to captivate fans for generations to come.
