80s wrestling figure commercials



Hey Scott –

 I haven’t been watching some old 80s wrestling commercials on Instagram and YouTube that have popped up and I was noticing that Hogan is not in a lot of them you see a lot of upper mid card guys JYD, Steamboat, Volkoff, Skeik even Piper.

Was this on purpose to make Hulk feel like he was the “superstar”?


​I think it was more that Hulk (and I believe Andre) had their own distinct licensing deals, so you couldn't just stick him in a commercial based on a deal with WWF in general.  ​
