TERRY GENE BOLLEA turns 60 today but you probably know him better as the incomparable Hulk Hogan.

Hogan is, of course, a legend of the wrestling world and his numerous career highlights include being a six time WWE/F Champion and becoming the first man to win back-to-back Royal Rumbles.

To celebrate his birthday, TheScore.ie team gathered around the water-cooler and discussed at length the Hulkster’s finest moments.

After two reversals and a running leg drop, here’s what we came up with.

Yeah, sure he was probably past it at this stage but it’s a testament to his popularity that he was supposed to be the bad guy in this match and yet it was The Rock who received all the boos.
