"Do you think the Gremsters can stand up to the HULKSTER?!"
- Hulk Hogan
Hulk Hogan (born on August 11, 1953) is a world famous wrestler. Hulk Hogan, himself made a cameo appearance in Gremlins 2: The New Batch during the movie when the gremlins break the fourth wall by taking over the movie projector.
When the gremlins who have taken over the movie projector, puts on an vintage female nudity movie (called "Volleyball Holiday") and claim they only want to see Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, the Movie Theatre Manager seeks out Hulk who is in the audience. He stands up, threatening the gremlins to play the rest of Gremlins 2 or he'll attack them. The gremlins get scared and decides to play the rest of the movie instead of having Hulk attack them. The people in the audience then applaud the Hulkster as he apologizes to the viewer and sits back down on to watch the rest of this movie (Gremlins 2, that is).
- In the original script, during the 'Movie break' scene, the projectionist was going to consult Stephen Spielberg about the gremlins. He'd reply with "Damn. I knew I should've directed this one". Then he would call Hulk Hogan. This joke was likely cut because many people wouldn't be able to recognize him (especially the younger generation).
