One Bucket Is Not Enough for WWE Legend Hulk Hogan's ALS Challenge

Jonathan Snowden@JESnowdenCombat Sports Senior WriterAugust 20, 2014

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has spread like wildfire over the Internet. By now, you've likely seen 100 of them.

Some are funny, some are supposed to be funny, and some are just plain fails.

But there's only one Hulk Hogan.

Hogan stands at 6'7" and weighs 300 pounds and change. There isn't an ice bucket in existence that could possibly soak the 61-year-old Superstar. That's why the man with the 24-inch pythons had two on hand to get the job done.

"I'm going to challenge Johnny Manziel. I'm going to challenge Mr. No-Call-For-The-Expendables Sylvester Stallone and Harvey at TMZ," Hogan said before getting soaked and ripping his shirt off like Roddy Piper was right around the corner.

Classic Hulkster.

Hogan is one of thousands to accept and complete the challenge. Although it's easy to get tired of watching these videos, it's important to remember it's all for a good cause.

Money raised from the Ice Bucket Challenge helps advance the cause of people suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

According to the ALS Association, the viral campaign been an incredible success: "As of Wednesday, August 20, The ALS Association has received $31.5 million in donations compared to $1.9 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 20). These donations have come from existing donors and 637,527 new donors to The Association."
