Hogan joined media tycoon Ted Turner's WCW (World Championship Wrestling) as part of the New World Order, a wrestling team that paired Hogan with two other wrestlers, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall.
This infamous triumvirate gained immense support from wrestling fans and, ultimately, returned Hogan to the success of his past.
By 1985, Hogan had acquired tremendous popularity among Americans.
His image was marketed to sell a multitude of products, and he began to take on leading roles in a number of films.
Instead, he chose to devote his time to working out in a local gym owned by wrestlers Jack and Jerry Brisco.
