Hulkster in Heaven...

hulk-shirtWhen I think of Hulk Hogan I think of a lot of things…

None more than touching balladeer.

From its opening salvo of weepy horns and keyboards all but screaming “Cry you unfeeling monster”. “Hulkster in Heaven” is intended to show you the kinder, gentler side of the business marked with weekly acts of savagery and betrayal.

Thankfully though, it fails miserably.

Check out this little ditty from the Hulkster who at the time was mourning the loss of one of his many li’l Hulkamaniacs…


hogan-keysWhen people ask me "Thom, why do little kids have to die?" I like to tell them it's so songs as beautiful as this one can get written...

You could tell the idea behind the song was to make you think that Hogan sprung forth from his bed, his heart heavy with the pains of a little voice that ceased shouting (kind of like Obi Wan with Alderaan). And how could anyone not feel that way with these amazing lyrics…

“…I used to tear my shirts but now you’ve torn my heart…”

Dylan didn’t put prettier words together.

Even the chorus... “… When the Hulkster goes to Heaven, we’ll tag up again…” oozes brilliance…

Who would have ever thought to have the Here After looked at as just another territory for Hulk and Vince to go after upon seizing control of the Southeastern Wrestling circuit (paralleling the claims made of the era… that Hogan, the man who couldn’t buy a drink in New York City, got the back of the bus treatment when he would roll into Flair Country [for the most part, this was the South, but predominantly the Carolinas and Georgia]).

Such poetry… made all the more poignant by the unyielding passage of time…

If only the Hulkster’s love was enough to raise the dead….

Oh, if only…
