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.
What the fuck does that even mean?
What IS his place? Does talking trash about him constitute stepping over the line? How about booking him to take a pin?

In all honesty, this should be pretty interesting.
Hogan probably won't be wrestling. I honestly don't think even he is crazy enough to walk in the ring after an x-division match and try to look anything but ridiculous.
Which begs the question, is a GM figure/pure promo guy (plus his buddy) really worth the amount of money they're paying him?

I was getting somewhat excited about Nigel, now it'll probably take second stage to these guys.


Also, since i'm not very familiar with the actual dynamics State-side, could anyone enlighten me on the REAL appeal of Hogan?
I personally couldn't give two shits about Hogan making any sort of appearance on any promotion other than the carcrash possibilities, but then again i'm not your average ticket-and-PPV-buying American fan.
What i'm asking is, does Hogan really have the fabled star power to draw casual audiences, or did it all fizzle over the bad reality shows?

You're not overreacting. Think of all the garbage WCW had when Hogan first came in before the NWO hit, plus with as bad as Russo can be, at least he tries to put over new talent. Hogan and Bischoff have no track record of that, and they're nothing right now to make anyone think they will. Plus, even with Hogan what happens if they keep pulling a 1.2 rating after the initial interest goes down, then what?

And I wouldn't be surprised if Flair joins this little fiasco soon. McMahon is probably laughing more then anything else.

WCW made WWE better, and the wrestling business as a whole better. There's no denying that at all. This gives them a second chance to put out shows people actually want to watch. You think they really wanna be associated with two failed companies "thanks to them"? I'm sure they could live with themselves, however both of them, specifically Hogan, need a success here.

Yeah he mentioned that on Larry King but not TNA. Larry actually had to bring it up to him. I really hope he's working them just to get backing on his tour and as soon as it's done he just leaves them holding the bag and never shows up in the Impact Zone. That would be fantastic.

I kind of feel bad for Australia. They rarely get great wrestling down there (at least indy stuff from outside of the country) and instead of Davey Richards having an amazing match with a local Australian wrestler...they are stuck with Hogan and whoever else will be on it (who is booked for it? Brian Knobbs probably, yuck...oh and Heidenreich and Big Daddy V, talk about fucking quality booking).

Don't forget Brutus Beefcake and Gangrel, and of course the money match of Flair vs. Hogan in 2009. If I was a fan in Australia I'd just wait for TNA's tour because even as desperate as they are for wrestling I couldn't see myself going to Hulk's horrid looking show.
