I'd agree, but compared to the people that comprise the majority of the roster, he shouldnt have any trouble at least looking the part. I hate to bring up anything that could be looked upon as positive about hogan, but of the many many great things about him being gone one of the things that i never see anyone talk about is how tiny and insignificant he made most of the roster look. I mean, if perception is reality in the wrestling business, they all looked like jobbers when hogan was in the ring and thankfully thats not a problem anymore.
Im not trying to take anything away from tna's talent with that observation, im only trying to say that, with no one around thats remarkabley bigger than most of them, people like aj can just be perceived to be a regular sized guy in a match with a bigger guy, rather than a match featuring a small guy and guy thats somehow smaller, if that makes sense.
I may be the only person that cares about that sort of thing, but when i watched tonight, i never once even thought about how small a guy was compared to a wrestler from yesteryear like i normally do with tna. I just saw wrestlers in entertaining matches that outperformed my expectations.
though i did notice how out of shape sting and samoa joe were
