Professional wrestling and Twitter go hand-in-hand in this modern age, with several pro wrestlers themselves having largely enjoyable accounts on the social media platform. While many look to The Iron Sheik for having one of the greatest Twitter accounts for a wrestler, it’s his acclaimed rival Hulk Hogan who recently made the Twitter-related headlines.
Initially posted on October 16th, 2011, ‘The Hulkster’ had an infamous goodnight tweet on the platform that appears to now have been mysteriously deleted. The tweet read:
“Goodnight HULKAMANIACS and jabronie marks without a life that don’t know it a work when you work a work and work yourself into a shoot,marks”
Twitter user @garrettkidney pointed out the news, noting how the tweet had last been quote-tweeted in August, meaning the deletion of the remark was a recent development. Why, exactly, now was the right time for the two-time WWE Hall of Famer to remove the tweet is anyone’s guess.
Only just now realised that Hulk Hogan has deleted his greatest tweet – which was sent 11 years ago today.

The Iron Sheik’s Hulk Hogan-Related Tweets Are Hilarious
Even when he’s not writing ‘HH’ at the end of his tweets, Hulk Hogan is still typically making the rounds on Twitter courtesy of The Iron Sheik‘s hatred of him. While all of Sheik’s tweets are hilarious out of context, not that much context is ever given anyway, it’s his Hogan-related messages that are particularly hilarious.
Even on Hulk Hogan’s 69th birthday, the former Colonel Mustafa couldn’t help but tell ‘The Immortal’ star to “f*ck himself”. Two days later, he uttered “F*CK HULK HOGAN EXTRA ON HIS BIRTHDAY”. These are just some of the humorous examples from The Iron Sheik on social media.
Hogan and the Sheik shared the ring 23 times throughout their careers, with their first match together seeing Hulk Hogan begin his 1,474-day reign as WWF Champion, pinning The Iron Sheik in Madison Square Garden in January 1984.
