The word at the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings on Monday was that the big concept that Hulk Hogan was referring to in the New York Post interview calls for fans to film TNA wrestlers whenever they may encounter them. The fans will be encouraged to send the footage to the company for possible inclusion on TNA television.

Powell's POV: The idea is that wrestlers are "on" 24/7. This idea isn't exactly popular within the locker room, as one can only imagine. As one person noted, Hogan is the last person who should encourage this given how his own home videos have come back to haunt him. Imagine if a wrestler is out with his or her's significant other, and then has to put up with a fan sticking a camera phone in their faces. Granted, this is the TMZ era and that could happen now, but it's not cool to have the company encouraging such behavior.

Tuesday Update: One source indicated today that the concept was set to be unveiled in a promo, but it ended up being removed. It remains to be seen whether they are saving it for another show, fine-tuning the idea, or if it's been dropped. I know several people in the company who hope it's the latter scenario.
I can't stop laughing over the fact that Hogan thinks fans stalking wrestlers will change the course of wrestling history and setting TNA on fire.

WTF, I really, really hope this isn't true. Though if it is Hogan was right. He may need to hightail it out of there.

SpeedStick made a good point. How can this work when they hardly get out of Florida?

Stupid idea Hogan. He is probably "Hulk Hogan" 24/7 (hiding his bald head), which leads to him not realizing that people may actually have a private life outside of wrestling. I just hope that this dirtsheet report is BS.

This is the worst idea since Abe Lincoln said to his wife "I'm sick of sitting around the house, let's catch a show".

Kayfabe is dead, Hogan. DEAD. This sounds like some Bill Watts-type crap here. But then again, we are in the reality era now, people get off on silly "reality" crap like this.

hogan only has good ideas when it comes to putting himself over . when it comes to putting anybody else over (roode,storm ), or just the whole tna roster to begin with he has no fucking clue what hes doing.

hogan is out for business for himself, and when your out for yourself then everybody around you suffers and right now thats tna product as a whole when hes involved ...same with eric bischoff

I hope they dropped this, this sounds _terrible_.

So many people are quick to believe news like this. I'll believe it when I see it.
