Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart Visit Pittsburgh
On June 4, 2016, Hulkamania and “The Mouth of the South” conducted a rare public autograph session. One is a 12-time world champ and the other is one of wrestling’s greatest managers. The duo conducted a meet-and-greet at The Mall at Robinson in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from 1-2:30 p.m.
The appearance was for the grand re-opening of Total Sports Enterprises, and Hogan and Hart were there to sign autographs and take photos. Conveniently, T-shirts, boots, belts and other items were available for purchase.
In 1984, Hogan was awarded the WWF championship belt for his memorable defeat of the Iron Sheik. Hogan rose to Super-Stardom. The resulting fan frenzy became legendary and earned the nickname “Hulkamania”.
When Hollywood Hogan signed with WCW, so did Jimmy Hart. The move proved to be a fruitful one for “The Mouth of the South,” as he soon managed Hogan all the way to the top of the company as The Hulkster captured the WCW Championship. Hart also worked hard behind the scenes for WCW where he crafted many of the Superstars’ entrance themes.
