“Twenty-five years ago, I appeared in my very
first WWE video game, and I’ve never been more excited than I am now to be part
of this year’s game,” said Hulk Hogan. “I’ve got one thing left to say: whatcha
gonna do when the WWE 2K15 ‘HULKAMANIA’ Edition, featuring the greatest of all
time, runs wild on you, brother?”

From early matches with opponents like
Andre the Giant, “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, Ultimate Warrior, “Macho
Man” Randy Savage and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, the emergence and popularity of
“HULKAMANIA” spread like wildfire, as fans embraced Hogan’s signature
appearance, charismatic personality and renowned moves. After time away from the
ring in the early ’90s, Hogan returned as “Hollywood” Hogan and developed a
handful of new rivals, including The Rock®, Sting and Goldberg. In 2005, after
decades of success, Hogan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Hogan’s
influence in pop culture extends beyond the ring, as he has lent his time to
several film, television, music, radio, restaurant and charitable projects. From
Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling cartoon series to his role as Thunderlips in
Rocky III, or his groundbreaking Sports Illustrated cover and highly-rated
reality television series, Hogan Knows Best, Hogan has cemented himself as a
notable, relatable and iconic celebrity recognized and adored by millions
worldwide.


“With an illustrious and storied career, a name forever etched
in the WWE Hall of Fame and a persona immortalized by fans around the world,
Hulk Hogan remains one of the most recognizable and memorable competitors in WWE
history,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “Hogan truly
deserves a ‘HULKAMANIA’ Edition of WWE 2K15, and this comprehensive offering is
a must-have for any WWE fan.”
