WWE.com — Hulk Hogan discusses WWE 2K, WWE 2K15 ‘Path of the Warrior’ DLC and Ultimate Warrior

WWE video games have experienced significant transformations over the last quarter century. From 1987’s MicroLeague Wrestling to 2014’s WWE 2K15, they have undergone continuous reinvention to remain fresh and relevant across generations of the WWE Universe.

It’s a narrative that one of the most popular Superstars in WWE history, Hulk Hogan, knows well. With the “2K Showcase: Path of the Warrior” DLC pack for WWE 2K15 now available and the new WWE 2K mobile game on the way, WWE.com spoke with The Hulkster to talk about this evolution, what 2K is doing to further it and the immortalization of The Ultimate Warrior’s WWE Hall of Fame career in virtual form.”

WWE.com — The 10 best WrestleMania performers ever

“A Superstar can be great 364 days out of the year, but if they don’t deliver at WrestleMania, they won’t mean much in the grand scheme of sports-entertainment lore.

The competitors who have excelled on The Grandest Stage of Them All are a select fraternity. The best of them didn’t have a good match or two — they anchored WWE’s biggest event of the year on multiple occasions. They made history on a regular basis, stole the show like it was theirs for the taking. They walked into stadiums as men and left as icons.

WrestleMania is known as The Showcase of the Immortals. The 10 Superstars on this list are the reason why.”

WWE.com — Hulk Hogan opens up about Randy Savage, The Mega Powers and why WrestleMania V means so much to him

“In the late 1980s, Hulk Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage formed one of the most powerful partnerships in sports-entertainment history. With the lovely Miss Elizabeth by their side, The Powers battled WWE’s baddies over the course of an entire year. But when the jealous Savage became overly protective of Elizabeth, it drove a wedge between the two competitors that resulted in The Mega Powers “exploding” in an emotional main event at WrestleMania V.

Twenty-five years have passed since that legendary battle. And to honor the occasion, WWE.com spoke with “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan, who let his guard down to reveal behind-the-scenes details about The Mega Powers, how the two biggest stars of the wrestling’s boom period reconciled decades later and why he still misses his old friend.”
