It'll be a fail of epic proportions that could kill TNA. I said in the massive discussion thread that it'll be fine for a few months, but Hogan's ego will eventually surface and it'll be all downhill from there. Hell, Hogan drawing ratings isn't even a guarantee considering he was drawing shit, in terms of ratings, when he was doing his deal in WWE between 2005 and 2007.

I just don't see HOgan putting over guys like Morgan and Hernandez, which will make it a fail. Its gonna turn into the Hogan show, and its gonna suck

Agreed. I can't even imagine how far Hogan has fallen in-ring since the last time he was in the WWE, when he was of course, atrocious. It figures that my interest in TNA has finally gone back up with Nigel and the next PPV looking pretty good and now Hogan hobbles in. One step forward and two back as per with TNA.

Who says Hogan is wrestling at all?

I, for one, am excited for this. It could very well be a laughable disaster of ridiculous proportions, or maybe it's the kick in the ass that TNA needs. Fuck it; let's see what happens.

Hogan should put over Eric Young. When the crowd doesn't care because it's Eric Young, Hogan should say "Hey, I put new blood over, and the crowd shit over it."

It doesn't matter that Hogan, Flair, etc. are there; what matters is that they're there and Vince Russo is going to be booking them. There are a lot of scenarios where TNA could be successful, but a Russo/Bischoff/Hogan/Flair/Nash/Angle locker room isn't one of them. We know this fucking story already: it'll rise in ratings, maybe even compete for a time, then too many people will start putting their spoons in the gumbo and it'll unravel. Epically.

This isn't funny to me anymore. I'm really sick of this shit. Once again, there's a high-profile company that will be the mainstream media's monolith for ALL THINGS WRESTLING. When TNA does something stupid or offensive or slightly racial, people won't say, "Man, TNA is disgusting." It'll be wrestling as a genre that gets kicked in the sack. I'm not amused, and if I happen to be in Orlando any time soon, I'll find my way to...express...this sentiment to Dixie Carter, Hogan, Vince, even fucking Jarrett if he comes up for air.

The ONLY good news here is that they're getting more attention with Styles as champ, so he'll get some much-deserved exposure. Oh, and you know none of those clowns are working house shows, so they should still be enjoyable.

Something tells me Russo might not be around much longer unless him and Hogan buried their beef.

I'll admit I saw the news and my first thought was "Does this mean Paul London can work BOLA?"

From the press conference Q&A:

Quote:
The Q&A session was said to mostly be fluff fan type questions, although one fan did ask Hogan whether working with Vince Russo would be an issue. Hogan responded that as long as Russo stayed in his place and didn't cross him, there would be no issues. Hogan then said that if he did, Hogan would have to take care of it.
I guess I'm just overreacting, but I really see this as similar to WCW's dying days but with brand new talent to bury. I sincerely hope I'm wrong though, because TNA does have a lot of good parts mixed in with a ton of old, useless baggage.
