Vintage Hogan.As mentioned earlier on the site, Hulk Hogan was not at the Victory Road PPV on Sunday or the Impact taping last night. A story being floated around by the Hogan came was that it was due to back surgery. Apparently, it's hard to travel an hour to Orlando. I wonder how he is able to fly to British Columbia and hang out with his pals this Sunday then.
The following Press Release was sent out yesterday:

Further making me doubt the line that "Hulk Hogan hasn't been to work at TNA due to back surgery" that has been floating around, in addition to heading to Canada, he will be in Chicago this weekend selling interviews at the Fan's Edge Sport's Spectacular. Isn't it funny that his back can handle the rigors of air travel for paydays but it can't take a 1 hour drive in a car? ... Thanks to Ryan Capps for sending that along.
