Report: Hulk Hogan’s TNA Contract Expiring Shortly

Source: Prowrestling.net

Multiple sources within TNA have confirmed that Hulk Hogan’s contract with the company expires on October 1st. At this time, there is no indication that Hogan and TNA have come to terms on a new deal. Hogan’s camp has not commented on the situation.

The timing of the contract expiring may create an interesting situation, as the Bound for Glory pay-per-view (TNA’s biggest PPV event of the year) takes place on October 20th.

    Well that's just foolish of TNA to have his contract expire before BFG.
    He's advertised for it, so I'm guessing he will sign a temporary contract?

  2. nicholal79 says:

    How does TNA have so many top talents' contracts expiring in a 3 month period?

  3. cnote says:

    Mis management is the reason why and no one can blame Bruce for any of these contracts expiring and not resigning them. Blame Dixie she’s a stupid and should just stay home and be a housewife!

    I hope Hogan goes to Elpaso,tx house show before unsigns.Be cool to meet him.

    TNA should sign Hogan to a short 1 month extension to carry him through B4G and then faze him out entirely. With Dixie Carter possibly being set up for a heel role in her war of words with AJ, it could make sense for her to either take over as IMPACT GM, or even place the returning Jeff Jarret in the role as her "spokesperson". Either way, it makes long term sense for TNA to part ways with Hogan. The money saved to go towards giving AJ a modest raise in his new contract, as well as bringing in some newer faces or going towards advertising. Perhaps at a later date, when TNA has a stronger standing, Hogan could be brought back in. In fact, one possible way to write him out of TNA would be to set up a 3 on 3 match for Bound For Glory between Sting, Joe, and Hogan and The Aces n 8s(Bischoff, Briscoe, and Knux). If the stories I've heard are to be believed, Hogan could be in good enough shape for at least a solid tag team match with Sting and Joe carrying most of the load. The stip could be that if Hogan's team wins, the Aces n 8s have to leave TNA forever, but if AN8s win, Hogan has to leave TNA forever.

      I love your tag match idea, but the sad part is, Hogan would want Joe to take the fall.

      • godoftna says:

        I think a way to get Hogan on board with the idea would be for Garret to be the one to get the pin on him. Part of the build up could have Hogan trying to convince GB to quit the Aces n 8s. As the ppv draws nearer, Bischoff has issues with Bully Ray and the other members of the AN8s, and the signs point to him switching sides at B4G. Cut to the end of the match, and Hogan tags in and cleans house on Briscoe and Knux leaving just Hogan and Bischoff in the ring. After staring at each other for a couple of minutes, Hogan extends his hand and Bischoff shakes it, making it all look as if GB has made his choice. However, as Hogan turns his back, GB delivers a low blow on Hogan and grabs the pin to get the victory and send Hogan packing. It'd be a great way to elevate Bischoff a bit as he could brag that "he was the man to get rid of Hulk Hogan".

    It's time to let Hogan walk. TNA ratings are still the same,they can't draw on the road. So why keep a 60 yr old guy who can't wrestle or draw money. Hogan is old news,he can't do anything for TNA,he's only there to stay in the lime light. Once he's gone from TNA he'll be at Surverior Series.

  7. Tiffanydude says:

    Even though I want Hogan gone if he will sign again hopefully with a lesser salary if not then a short extension then leave.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      you a funny funny man…he wont sign anything "short term" and his ego is so big he wouldn't take less money..him leaving wont effect TNA…just let him walk away..

  8. 2blackbelts says:

    I doubt if HH would sign a short term contract. It's probably a full deal or nothing at all. HH is not one to do the give and take, it's more like "you give and I take". Both parties will probably need to compromise to resign HH, and the major question is, does he really need to be resigned at all, but just let to ride slowly in the sunset.

  9. Roid Master says:

    Hogan is a parasite on TNA. He needs to go.

  10. Get_Carter says:

    Card subject to change.

  11. cnote says:

    Going forward instead of commenting back if you make a lame comment I’m just gonna put LAME!!!!!

  12. JoeWrestling says:

    The Hogan situation is easy. Offer him the same money you pay the other guys like AJ Styles, and take it or leave it. He hardly does anything so he won't turn it down. It's a couple days work a month, and he likes the publicity of being on TV. You have all the leverage, and if he leaves, oh well. He can't claim to be insulted by the offer cause it will be the same you pay other top guys.

  13. TheBringer92 says:

    Keep him till Oct 20th then he can leave, In a match where Aces n 8s vs MEM but have it whoever loses Hogan or Bully Ray would get fired

  14. tnadude says:

    You guys crack me up. Some are crying to get rid of Hogan "he doesn't draw" saying "use the money to give AJ a raise". AJ doesn't draw either – LOL!

    Others want to see him stay, but at a lower rate. Still others don't think he'd take a pay cut.

    Realistically, he's walking. The Dixie turn is setting that up. It's just another example of how poorly she runs TNA though. This should have been set up months ago…

    My preference would be to sign him to a new PPA contract. They could keep the appearance fees the same. However, they'd just use him a lot less. His net effect would be much greater, and his presence would actually justify his pay in that situation.

    But he's now been GM for something like 2 years, so honestly – even the Hulkamaniac in me believes it's time for a change.

    Additionally, they could pay him to do promotional work as well. In that capacity he could be a liaison between TNA and the media.

    Again – all of this on a per-use basis. If TNA doesn't have the funds, they just don't use him.

    honestly, i say keep hogan, but take him away from being gm. make him aopen tna every weak. have hogan be the host of impact in more of a hype role sorta like his american gladiators job was. "welcome to impact wrestling fans. to***ht we have aj styles vs samoa joe, they are gonna tear this house down brothers as they face off in a 60 min iorn man match for the tna world title. kurt angle vs sting to***ht for number one contendership to face the winner of the main event next week right here on impact wrestling. SO whatcha gonna do?????? watcha gonna do when hulk hogan, and impact wrestling run wild on youuuuu. rips shirt ponts to screen cuts to impact intro. he can have occasional angles and do special interviews. like when say a new world champ is crowed. think joe rogans role on ufc.

    • Get_Carter says:

      Regardless, Hulk is still going to charge the same per appearance fee. If Hulk is on *every* week that isn't a cost savings measure.

  16. Real Deal Heel says:

    Make Hogan wrestle…or don't resign him. LOL.
