Even More On Hulk Hogan’s TNA Future – Swerve?

Even More On Hulk Hogan’s TNA Future – Swerve?

Partial Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

As previously reported, Hulk Hogan may have been written off of TNA television during the tapings for next week’s edition of iMPACT! Wrestling, which were filmed on Thursday night in Little Rock, Arkansas.

For those who missed it, the main event angle for next week’s show will see Hulk Hogan respond to the ultimatum given to him by Dixie Carter on this week’s live iMPACT! Wrestling broadcast. Hogan ultimately “quits the company,” with Dixie on her knees begging him to stay as the show goes off the air.

According to one source, this could be an attempt by TNA to simply swerve the audience, as Hogan, whose contract is up next Tuesday, may have already signed a new deal with the company. This could be TNA’s way of milking the real-life drama going on right now in the company, with so many contracts expiring and name-talent parting ways with the promotion.

If Hogan has re-signed, the feeling is that running this angle would seem very real, due to the aforementioned situation with so many high-profile talents leaving due to the inability to come to terms with the company on new agreements.

If a new deal between Hogan and TNA has not been reached, then the angle shot on Thursday’s television tapings will in fact be Hogan’s swansong.

    Personally, I think all this moving and shaking going on is going to explode at bound for Glory. New faces coming in. some you thought were gone will show up. contracts will be signed…..etc etc…but I do think Hogan once he is gone, everyone else can return….

  2. Luchador says:

    I think he already re-signed, Dixie wouldn't do that angle if it was Hogans last night at Impact

    • Bigmike885 says:

      I agree with you on this one…if hes gone and this was the angle that they went with, it makes looks TNA really really bad. It makes it seems as though even though he's leaving they need to put him over as important. It better be a swerve

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      It would be a means for him to leave as far as the storyline goes, rather than just suddenly drop off TV without any mention. It also makes it so as far as this business goes that they have respect for him, most wrestlers are NEVER given any kind of send off. Personally I think it's time he goes, he costs to much and the company could use the money more wisely.

      • Bigmike885 says:

        I have no problem with him being sent off with respect, but to see the owner of the company beg for him to stay makes TNA look bad…

    Gosh i truly hope this latest news on hogan is true i really don’t want him gone, he can and has helped TNA!

    • andy3323 says:

      Uh oh, be careful, the mods on this site despise Hogan, they might ban you for being in favor of keeping him!

    • tna24 says:

      help tna in what way?

      • toddmikki says:

        Taught up and comers, gave AA a chance to shine, gave Bobby Roode the spot light, gave TNA an identity, got them in front of more audiences, got out of the theater (impact zone), got rid of the circus ring (mma style ring) and back into the ONLY real traditional ring, put together amazing real life story lines, and trying to reinvigorate the industry. REMEMBER TNA IS THE MOST WATCHED WRESTLING SHOW IN EVERY COUNTRY THEY BROADCAST EXCEPT HERE IN THE US.

        • Philly_Cheese says:

          Um… no…
          1> AA was put into the position he was because of booking and storyline, Hogan doesn't have any say in either (he's said that in the past).
          2> He didn't want bobby roode as champion
          3> TNA already had an identity, after all they managed to get a TV deal without him
          4> yeah he got them to go on the road and out of the impact zone, which also costed the company more than they could afford. It got to the point they had to start underpaying their talents, and letting people go. They managed to upset more wrestlers, and got no benefits from it.
          5> He also managed to piss off a lot of fans when he did it, he called TNA "amateur" when he got rid of it, and insulted the fans on TV and twitter about it. He even later said he regretted handling it the way he did, because he pissed off so many fans in the process.
          6> he has nothing to do with TNA's storylines, he's said it a dozen times and he's done nothing to "reinvigorate the industry" he doesn't know how to do that and he's not capable of it either.

          Point blank, TNA was more popular BEFORE he came along. Since he's come in the ratings have significantly dropped, going from a 1.4 consistently to a 1.1 on their best night.

        • Bigmike885 says:

          I love that "tna is the most watch wrestling show in every other country in the world" comment…nevermind the fact that TNA pays to be on those stations (therego make NO money of those shows)….

    • jflegler says:

      Golly, I have to agree with you. Do you think that Dixie is going to give Beav the business?

  5. andy3323 says:

    From the we-are-just-now-catching-they-could-be-playing-us department…..

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      I hope not… I've already stopped watching for the most part, with most occasions watching it online in some form, and fast forwarding through 99% of it. The product has gone down hill, with very few matches being worth while to watch. Seeing Hogan talk instantly makes me skip through because it's always the same thing. "blah, blah, blah, brother…. blah, blah, let me tell you brother"
