If the Earth was made of molten rock and spinning around, the molten rock (or lava - whatever you want to call it) would solidify when cooled. BUT, centrifugal force would push this mass to the outside.
That would leave a hollow in the middle. It's basic science. At the Ontario Science Center they have a machine that shows how water and oil can mix at the right speed. In that demonstration you see a "hollow" in the center.
"Centrifugal force" would cause the magma to collect at the equator, the farthest points from the axis of rotation. It would not distribute itself around the interior of the sphere. That's the physics of it. Think. The Earth would not be a hollow sphere, it would be a disk (riding on the backs of elephants, carried by a giant turtle).

Q: "What is underneath the Earth?"
A: This is unknown. Most FE proponents believe that it is generally composed of rocks. Please note that in Hinduism, the Earth rests on the back of four elephants and a turtle.

With all the talk about a genuine sun in the centre of the earth- I wonder at how many people have considered a single hollow under each of the poles, fueled by an artificial sun, created by whatever races reside there.
I know it's another far-cry off many theories, but I'm one of those people who can't fathom the entire centre of the earth being hollow, either.
Truthfully- I find it far more probable that the "Hollow" earth is more of a massive networks of caves, much larger than we're capable of imagining.
I mean, think about it- how many caverns are there that we know about that we haven't entirely explored yet? We already know that there are miles and miles of cave networks in North America that connect naturally.
