Hulk Hogan's WCW contract has been leaked online, following an investigation by Chris Harrington into WCW court documents. There's a range of new information in the document, throwing up some intriguing facts about Hogan's WCW career. Everything from his salary to his complex range of bonuses, this was undoubtedly one of the best deals ever handed out in the pro wrestling industry. The contract was his final deal with WCW, and the following is everything you need to know from the documents.
10. A Four Year Deal
Hogan's final WCW deal was a four year contract, for a period from May 29, 1998 to May 28, 2002. What's significant about that, is WCW went out of existence in March 2001. Furthermore, Hogan's final WCW appearance was in July 2000 at Bash At The Beach. That means the Hulkster got a pretty good deal on his contract, as the only years he really had to work hard were 1998 and 1999. It also means that the WWE only had to buy out approximately three months of his contract, when they signed him to a deal in February 2002. A three to four year deal does tend to be normal practice in professional wrestling. However, as you are about to discover, there are plenty of things in Hogan's contract that were far from normal!
