Whaddup, Hulkamaniacs?

At midnight last night at Tower Records, I picked up the new DVD release HOLLYWOOD HULK HOGAN: HULK STILL RULES. People, I'm not just saying this because I am a lifetime Hulkamaniac, but this is THE BEST release WWE Home Video has ever done. The DVD is over SIX HOURS OF HULK HOGAN! This has just about everything one needs to get schooled on the MAN, the MYTH, the ICON himself, the Hulkster.

The regular HULK STILL RULES production is just over one hour long and covers Hogan's entire career, from his beginnings in the Deep South promotions all the way up to today in 2002 where Hulkamania is enjoying a major resurgence amongst the pop culture masses. In the show Hogan has some very revealing things to say about his peers past and present, the most fascinating insights being toward Rowdy Roddy Piper, Andre the Giant, Macho Man Randy Savage, current NWA: TNA head writer Vince Russo, The Rock and Triple H. While this alone is makes for fascinating viewing, it's the EXTRAS that make this DVD so special. Here's a list of those extras:
