Professional wrestling living legends, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, touched down at Sydney Airport this morning at 6am.
Media Man, Icon Images and some other passionate fans and news media were there to welcome The Hulkster and The Nature Boy.
Also present were Eric Bischoff, Michael Condon (Condon Sports and Entertainment), some security and an attractive female that may have been Ric's new wife (unconfirmed).
Spin Communications had provided Media Man and a host of other news media with the airport arrival tip off the day prior.
The upcoming Hogan VS Flair matches in Australia as part of Hulkamania Let The Battle Begin tour will be the first and last time they meet in the ring on Australian soil.
Hogan is regarded as the most widely recognised professional wrestler of all time and put the wrestling business on the entertainment and Hollywood map in the mid 80's with the Rock N Wrestling connection involving Cindy Lauper and Mr T.
Fueled along by the WWF machine, Hogan took the business to new levels with feuds involving Rowdy Roddy Piper and the late, great, Andre The Giant.
Hogan's trademarks include "Watcha going to do when Hulkamania runs wild on you", the big boot to the face, the Hogan legdrop, and lariat (clothesline). Hogan is a MoVember supporter and has just released his updated autobiography "My Life Outside The Ring".
Flair is a favorite of serious wrestling fans around the globe and is regarded as one of the top five wrestlers of all time. Flair's most famous and celebrated wrestling feuds have been with Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, and of course, Hulk Hogan. Flair's trademark moves include the Flair judo chop, figure four leglock and the Flair flip over the top rope, which actually helps make the opponent look good, and is spectacular to watch. Flair is also known for his "Woooo" taunts, which he delivered in style at Sydney airport earlier today.
Both gentlemen are highly respected by fans, media and their peers. They are known for their genuine passion and respect of the industry and its fans.
The Hulkamania Let The Battle Begin tour headlined by Hogan VS Flair promises to be a wrestling fans dream come true and a once in a lifetime opportunity for Australian wrestling fans to see the icons go at it down under.
