    Don’t matter nobody will be watching it anyway. I mean it use to be about about 15 years ago you see Hogan and Flair you turn in a heartbeat but now nobody cares. When ever these old guys show up everything in TNA ratings and veiwership goes down. Oh I don’t mind Flair so much showing up he has been great for the young guys and sometimes acts like he care for all the young wrestlers just as long as he stay out of the ring. It is just sas to watch that is all I am saying. Hogan well this guy to me is somebody who still thinks he is bigger then the buisness he only comes around to boast his ego. Don’t really care about putting anybody over but himself. I just don’t care for Hogan and use to be one of us biggest fan. But his ego just so bad I don’t care what he does anymore.

    This event will be good if Flair and Hogan don’t wrestle. I think this will end the Roode and Hardy feud.

  • Jason

    Fuck yeah, TNA is the best thing going today.

  • StocktonJoe

    Yeah, but the TNA PPVs are not brutal in a “good way.”

    ” “Lockdown 2012” is promised to be the most brutal pay-per-view event of the year ”

    Every TNA PPV is brutal

  • StocktonJoe

    If geriatric double-J comes back, it will be a spoiler. It’ll spoil the whole PPV. The difference between Jeff Jarrett and Hogan and Flair is that Jarrett was never a “once-was.” Jarrett was a mid-carder with delusions of grandeur who is a “star” because his daddy bought him a wrestling promotion.

    i cant wait for the event and spoiler alert i think jeff jarrett will be coming back

  • StocktonJoe

    The only “explosive” anything Hogan and Flair will bring to this is if they both have a couple of “double-bean” burritos half an hour before the event. They were in their prime 30 years ago. They were past their prime 20 years ago. They were “once were-s” 10 years ago (especially Hogan). Now they’re just pathetic.

  • Tombstonepildriver

    Keep Flair and Hogan off and this could make for a hell of a wrestling show. But with Flair and Hogan it becomes the battle of the Geritol brothers. or should I say Brotha’s.
