2. Hollywood Hulk Hogan

Technically, Hollywood Hulk Hogan originated in WCW, but as WWE ended up buying that company (and the character eventually showed up in WWE too), we're choosing to include him.

Hulk Hogan was wrestling's biggest superstar. If we're talking all-time, he could still very well hold that title. There was no one like him; to the fans, he was a superhero, overcoming all threats and telling the younger fans to eat their vitamins and say their prayers, brother. Whenever he made the jump from WWE to WCW, it was a huge blow to the company that made him a star, but he proceeded to bring wrestling fans joy as The Hulkster. And then the betrayal came.

When Hogan joined the NWO and dropped his signature yellow and red colors for black and white, Hollywood Hulk Hogan was born. The reaction from the audience when he first turned heel spoke volumes and WCW was able to capitalize on that in the weeks and months ahead, turning wrestling's most beloved superstar into its most reviled. It was a downfall for one of wrestling's greatest characters and an uprising for another. The superhero had become the villain, and the heat it created all around the world was real.

While a lot of the creative choices in the years after that did not benefit anyone, we're still all talking about Hogan's heel turn and the absolutely hideous character it created all these years later. What a moment, and what a character Hollywood Hulk Hogan became.
