WWE legend Hulk Hogan, together with his wife Sky Daily and a buddy known as Jake, a US military, saved the life of an adolescent after a horrifying vehicle disaster on a Clearwater, Florida highway, in a real-world heroics reminiscent of his wrestling prowess, according to The US Sun.
Hogan’s crew saw the tragedy occur as a motorist swerved across lanes, trying to catch a missed exit, which caused a collision with another car that overturned. Famous for his wrestling character, Hogan pulled over right away and, with Jake’s help, hurried to help the driver, who was left “completely rattled.”
Using the available equipment, the marine pierced the airbag, and Hogan—clad in his trademark New World Order (nWo) T-shirt—was instrumental in helping to free the teenage driver from the capsized car. They quickly undid her seatbelt so she would be safe until the ambulance came.
Visibly shaken but apparently undamaged, the nameless adolescent expressed appreciation, and Hogan, who is now 70 years old, modestly said he was “happy to help.” The renowned wrestler cemented his place as a 12-time world champion and a key player in the beginning of “Hulkamania” with a valiant performance that demonstrated a real-life embodiment of the persona that catapulted him to worldwide prominence during the 1980s and 1990s.
Notably, Hogan’s impact continued with WCW into the late 1990s and early 2000s, where he co-founded the organization with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall.
