Greg Gagne Recalls His First Interaction With Hulk Hogan After He Left AWA

One Big Thing

Greg Gagne, son of Verne Gagne, recently shared his experience of Hulk Hogan no-showing a series of matches in AWA before his eventual move to WWE.

Key Points

  • AWA held Battle Royals from September through November, with the winner getting a major championship shot in December.
  • Hogan was supposed to be a part of this, and they had a deal with CBS to do a two-hour special for April the following year.
  • They wanted to have Hogan versus Nick Bockwinkel and planned to make a big title change.
  • As they reached Christmas week, the major cities they were set to have shows in were all sold out.
  • On Christmas night in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Hogan didn’t show up for a six-man tag team match.

Why It Matters

Hulk Hogan’s no-show at the AWA events had a significant impact on the promotion and its plans for the future. It also highlights the unpredictable nature of the wrestling business and the challenges promoters face when dealing with top talent.
