Yes. He trained under Hiro Matsuda. Matsuda was very well known and respected. When Terry Jean Bollea first came to the school he received a broken ankle. After it healed he returned and Matsuda liked his heart and took him under his wing. This was in 1977 and Hogan made his pro wrestling debut in 1978. He made his WWF debut in 1979. The rest is history. Early in his career he went under the names of Terry Boulder and or Sterling Golden. Hulk Hogan was given to him be Vince Mcmahon Sr. He resided in the Tampa area.

Yup he was trained by Hiro Matsuda...People hates Cena's character not cena himself... WWE writers are patterning him to be another Hulk Hogan to appeal more to younger audience, but the time of saying prayers and eating vitamins are over... fans today want bear drinking, finger slinging, foul mouthed sons of a gun!

Hiro Matsuda deliberately broke Hogan's leg after sarcasticaly asking him if he wants to be a wrestler and prepared him for wrestling but it was Hogan's physique and natural charisma that got him a place in wrestling.















He learned the basics but was never going to be so much a wrestler as he was a charismatic entertainer inside a wrestling ring.















Cena can wrestle, Cena has taken wrestling lessons along side Samoa Joe, there's a funny video on youtube, type in cena samoa joe wrestling lessons and it should come up.















Cena aint a natural wrestling technician, just like Hogan, Cena exceeded through his physique and charisma more so, but Cena can wrestle on a low key ammature level.















It's no secret that Cena was carried by the veterons majority of his career but unlike Hogan, Cena has improved dramatically with the moves. I personally don't have an issue with Cena's moves, it's his lack of psychology and too much OTT'ing because he don't understand the emotion of a situation he just follows the script which looks bad.

Hogan was trained by Hiro Matsuda. Matsuda was a disciple and student of the legendary Rikidozan, the father of puroreso (Japanese wrestling), sort of like the Japanese version of our Lou Thesz. Hogan did learn how to wrestle but at his size he was always going to be a power brawler.































In Hogan's time (Hulkamania of the 1980's) fans cheered faces and Hogan was the biggest babyface of them all. There was no internet and dirt sheets and spoiler/rumor sites giving us all the backstage stuff we get now. And Vince hadn't told the world that wrestling is fake yet. Hulk Hogan was presented and marketed as a hero and the fans accepted him as that, and the vast majority of them cheered him. Not EVERYBODY loved Hogan, but most people did.































Another big factor in Hogan not wearing out his welcome so to speak was that there wasn't seemingly dozens of WWF TV shows on each week like there is now.































In the mid 90's, after Vince told the world that wrestling is fake, with dirt sheets and spoiler/rumor sites popping up all over, with ECW giving us cool heels and WCW and the WWF copying that, the fans' attitudes changed. Fans started appreciating heels more than they had, and eventually started cheering them. The babyface started losing it's appeal, as fans began to think of them as goody two-shoes and boring.































Today, Vince over-pushes and overexposes his biggest stars, shoveling them down our throats to the point that fans get sick of them. ALL of them. From Triple H to Edge to Orton to Cena and every other main eventer who gets the main events on TV and PPV month after month after month. Cena is a face so a lot of fans automatically hate him just for that. Cena is the hero character (like Hogan was) so a lot of fans hate him for that, too. He's been a main eventer/World Champ for several years so that means he's featured prominently on TV and PPV. Some fans hate him for that, as well.































There is no point or valid reason to single out Cena and hate him over the other WWE main eventers who always win. It all comes down to the fact that Cena is a face and the hero in the WWE universe. He's the good guy so the heel-loving fans hate him for that. Those heel-loving fans are generally teenage to young adult males, they are very vocal (and irrational) in their hate, and they are under the illusion that only children and women cheer for Cena. Randy Orton and Edge have been over-pushed and overexposed just as much as Cena has; the difference is Cena is a face and they aren't.
