How did Hollywood Hogan evolve?

For the uninitiated, Hollywood Hogan is the persona Hulk Hogan adopted after he left WWE to join WCW. Hulk Hogan was the face of mainstream wrestling during the 1980s when he wrestled for WWE, he did so as a babyface. When he moved to WCW in the 1990s, the Hulkster found it challenging to stay relevant on the WCW scene. He was desperately trying to find a way for the audience to connect with him in the ring. That is when Hogan did the unthinkable and turned into a heel.
