and if that is what it features then i am ticked the original bonus disc looked awesome so i plan on getting it at walmart and hoping it doesn't include the hogan knows best disc and that it includes the original listing for the 4 disc"
Make sure you buy the 4 disc set

"The WWE has done something really stupid with this release.
Here on Amazon, they're selling a 3 disc set, on WWE's web site, they're selling a 4 disc version
that has episodes of Hogan Knows Best on the 4th disc and exclusively at Wal-Mart (where I bought mine)
they're selling a 4 disc set that contains a bonus disc of matches - THIS version of the DVD is the one to own,
and most fans agree with me, just check the sales ranking for this DVD on Amazon. It's not selling nearly as
well here as it should. All these different versions was a HUGE mistake. This is why I've given this set only 3
stars. The WWE should have stuck to releasing only the 4 disc version that contains the bonus disc of matches.
So, if you want as many matches as possible, buy your copy at Wal-Mart.
Now, on to the review....
This set is hosted by Mean Gene and Jimmy Hart (who infortunately stays in character) and includes interviews
and comments by various promoters, friends, wrestlers and Hogan himself to tell his story. Most of the
matches here are from the original WWE Hulk Still Rules DVD set, but with some unique additions.
You'll see a short angle between Hogan and Andre from a 1980 episode of WWWF television where Hogan
busts Andre open. Also new to this set is Hogan vs Nick Bockwinkel from the AWA, Hogan vs Big John Studd from MSG, Hogan vs the Giant from WCW Hog Wild, Hogan vs Sting from Starrcade, Hogan vs Curt Henning from XWF (the most unexpected match on this set), Hogan vs Triple H for the Undisputed Title, Hogan and Edge vs Billy and Chuck for the WWE Tag Titles, Hogan vs McMahon from WM and Hogan vs Shawn Michaels from SS. Everything else has been seen on the previous release. One match that's included I have to question why WWE chose it, and that's Hogan vs Sgt. Slaughter from WM. This is not only one of Hogan's worst matches, but it was hands down the WORST WM main event ever. Both men showed so much light in this match it's ridiculous. It is worth watching however, just to see the most obvious blade job ever. You'll clearly
see Hogan remove the blade, cut himself, lay the blade on the mat just to have the ref bend over and pick it up and place it in his pocket - too funny!
On the plus side, the Nick Bockwinkel match is classic and so is the encounter between Hogan and Piper. The match from the "Big Event" between Paul Orndorff is also a classic, so there's a lot of classic moments here. Also, if you were worried about it, Jesse Ventura's audio commentary has NOT been cut out, it's all here.
If you get the 4 disc set at Wal-Mart, you'll get to see the following: Hogan vs Tito Santana (1980), Hogan vs Rogers and Greenly from the AWA, Hogan vs Terry Funk from Saturday Night's Main Event, Hogan vs Harley Race from Saturday Night's Main Event, 1990 Royal Rumble match (from the moment Hogen enters), Hogan vs Earthquake from SS 1990 and an interview with Mean Gene from 2005.
The cool thing about this is the footage from Saturday Night's Main Event. They included tons of pre and post match footage from SNME. For example, for the Terry Funk match, you'll see Jesse Ventura interview Terry Funk poolside before the match, a news segment about Funk attacking Hogan, Mean Gene interview with Hogen and the Junkyard Dog plus all the post match happenings - really cool. After watching this, it makes me wish that the WWE would release SNME on a season by season basis on DVD, but it will never happen...I guess.
Overall, if you bought the "Hulk Still Rules" set, this is worth picking up if to only get the 4th bonus disc of matches, but don't expect too much new content beyond that. Why WWE released 3 versions of this is beyond me, just be sure you know which version you're getting before buying!"

"Unfortunately for me,i missed alot of Hulk Hogans career,because the TV stations hardly showed any.It used to be on alot in the 80's,but went off air in the early 90's.I never got to see anymore till pay TV.So i had never seen these fights.One of the best is the one against The Ultimate Warrier.Im that biased toward Hulk Hogan,it didnt matter to me Hulk Hogan or Hollywood Hogan.These are some of his mightiest efforts,and there is something about him that just gets to you.I love it when he would give one of those long speaches...Hulkamania is running wild....great stuff!!!!
I was surprized in some of those early fights to see people throwing things onstage.I cant believe they got away with that,i thought it was a disgrace.But there was some great fighters,Andre The Giant,King Kong Bundy,Iron Sheik to name a few.There is certainly one hell of alot of action here.
I went to the Survivor Series at The Rod Laver Arena to see the modern Wrestlers,and had a great time there.So im right into the wrestling,and this is a great anthology."
