Hulk Hogan was arguably the largest wrestling icon from the 80s to the late 90s. Nobody has had the clout quite like the Hulkster in all wrestling. Hogan was the front-runner of Vince McMahon’s company for the longest time. In addition, he was also in the main event of the first-ever WrestleMania, held in 1985 in Madison Square Garden. One of the most unforgettable moments in wrestling involving Hogan was when he turned heel in WCW and joined the NWO. Over the years, the six-time World Champion has also been shrouded by controversies. 

A few years ago, WWE scrubbed off Hulk Hogan’s legacy following his racist remarks resurfaced on a tape on the internet in 2015. However, Hogan was later reinstated into the Hall of Fame. Aside from that, Hogan has made the news time and again due to his marred reputation. His recent possible connection with a cult has the fans shooting daggers at the Hollywood Hulk Hogan. 

Hulk Hogan has reportedly joined the Church of Scientology

Hulk Hogan has made the headlines again for all the wrong reasons after news about his possible link to the Church of Scientology spread. For the unversed, The Church of Scientology is a group of interconnected corporate entities and other organizations devoted to the practice, administration, and dissemination of Scientology, which has also been widely recognized as a cult, a business, or a new religion.

The stigmatized cult has been in the news for years due to its hand in controversies. Now it appears as if Hulk Hogan may be the newest celebrity figure to join the Church alongside Hollywood’s acclaimed actor, Tom Cruise. 

According to reports, Hogan has been interacting with various Scientologists in the last few weeks. In addition, he reportedly even dated a “second-generation” Scientologist in the past. A former member of the Church, Aaron Smith -Levin took to Twitter to reveal that Hogan was spotted at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ playoff game on Monday night with Tom Cruise.

Smith-Levin is now the vice president of The Aftermath Foundation, which intends to help people who have cut ties with the system of Scientology and the Sea Organization.
