Has three brothers and a sister. Their father taught all the kids to hunt
Played little league baseball, track, football and tennis; met his first wife on the tennis court
Was trained by, and feuded with, Chris Adams. His second wife, Jeanie (who later became Steve's valet "Lady Blossom") was married to Chris but left him for Steve. Together they have two little girls, and I believe Jeanie and Chris have a daughter from their relationship...?

They became the tag team "The Hollywood Blonds" but were broken up due to backstage politics; soon after, Hogan entered WCW and Steve was released by Eric Bischoff over the phone while healing from injuries
Made a brief stop in ECW before meeting with Vince McMahon and joining the WWF
His first gimmick was "The Ring Master", which he hated. He was paired for a short while with Ted DiBiase

In 1999 he was profiled on A&E's Biography and was one of People Magazine's most interesting people
Divorced second wife Jeanie in 1999; Steve has full (?) custody of both girls
