Damn, rule one I learned about choking people out is to keep them from falling and getting hurt. Unfortunately for the host, Hulkamania has no rules, like the jungle and the pythons must feed.

I notice Gene Lebell drops people as well. Is it a pro wrestling thing? Anyone know the story behind why the Hulkster dropped him on his head?
(BTW you can see the blood spewing out of the host's head at one point)

Man, that host got up and went to commercial break like a champ!!!! Should have won an Emmy for that.

Lebell at least seems to have a mat under him when he does it. Although I've seen videos where he lets the chokee down a little easier.
Here's the full video of the Hogan incident:
As you see, Belzer asked for a wrestling demonstration. I think Hogan might have been a little agitated by some of the things he was saying and wanted to squeeze him hard for a bit. Unfortunately, he didn't think it through and probably didn't even understand the move he was fucking around with all that well.

By the way, from this day forward Hulk Hogan's guillotine choke variation will be known as the Pip-Squeak Sandwich.

hmmm.... I'm pretty sure Hogan knew what he was doing with the choke, Hiro Matsuda trained him after all.

I'm sure Hogan had a familiarity with shoot-style holds, although he was obviously trained for performance and not competition. What I have to question, however, is Hogan's experience in legitimately applying chokes in a safe and controlled manner.
Either way, he did not think it through. And he got sued because of it.
