  • Jason

    The next time TNA comes to your neck of the woods Valo I will be there like always standing next to Don West. Buy a ticket and you will see me…

  • Valo487

    Gladly Jason. Where and when? Or are you going to “forget” to respond like you do every time someone tries to get you to prove you work for TNA? Either you really do and have the maturity of a 12 year old, or you don’t because you actually are a 12 year old. Either way, I’m not scared.

  • all american hero

  • all the way

    @ Jason yea hogan still draws the same way I draw my name on ur moms lower back while I’m tapping that ass LOL

  • all the way

    Jason sucks dicks

  • DuffmanLovesHimSomeWrestling

    You don’t like TNA, let’s fight. Argue with the wrestling fans on the internet. They hire some great professionals over there at TNA but that is no secret… I mean they did let a drugged up individual hold their World Championship. Way to represent the company, keep it up!

  • Bastion boogeyman

    Jason has meetings backstage with talent. He tells them to suck his dick to get a world title shot. Now we know why James Storm is the number 1 contender.

  • StocktonJoe

    According to tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com, Impact Wrestling had an estimated 1.383 million viewers for the 3/29 show and were number 50 for 3/29. For the 3/26 show, WWE had 4.438 million viewers for the 9-10 hour and 4.448 million viewers for the 10-11 hour, and were numbers 1 and 2 for the 3/26 ratings for all of cable. AND according to ewrestlingnew.com they had 18,000 in the arena.

    I hope Hogan is selling a lot of t-shirts. TNA sure isn’t putting “asses into seats.” According to ewrestlingnews.com they run between 600 and 2500 per live event.

  • Jason

    Valo you can always try and make me by coming to one of the TNA house shows and saying anything you want to my face. I’m not hard to find, I stand right next to Don West in the merch area.

    Either way TNA with Hogan as the center point just scored 1.8 million viewers for last nights show. Hogan still draws

  • Valo487

    Fuck off Jason.

  • 1919dpg

    @jason it’s still stupid… setting the major fraud aside. what will hogan due to containe roode aside from say brother brother and squash him. it’ll be terrible.

  • StocktonJoe

    When the writing is so predictable that fans can call it in advance because it’s been done before, that’s lazy writing.

  • Jason

    From a storyline setting this makes perfect sence via to have Hogan as the GM. Even a friend of mine that works with AAA said this is how he would have booked it and he said this during the B4G PPV. It’s called smart long term booking.

  • StocktonJoe

    All this nonsense about Hulk being “General Manager” is a story line – every bit as much as Teddy Long or John Laurinitis being a “General Manager” over in WWE is a story line. They’re the “public face” of their show. But a real “GM?” No, of course not. My point is that this is a weak story line. We’ve already “been there, done that and bought the T-Shirt.” If TNA feels they really have to do a GM story, they should bring somebody new and unexpected in. The story may flop. But at least it wouldn’t be stale.

  • Jason

    Jon thanks for going way off topic, it does seem to be the norm when you guys can’t debate a point of mine any further.

    Hogan still sells and makes TNA loads of money from a Ad stand point to a merch and TV ratings stand point. Every segment he is in draws either 2 million viewers or comes close to it.

    Also you need to learn the dif between a TV rating and it’s viewership. TNA is drawing better viewership since Hogan and Bischoff have come on board. Production is way better. Over seas ad power and marketing is way better. There is way more demand from TV networks to pick up TNA Impact via the overseas markets. In six countries TNA out draws WWE viewership wise and goes neck to neck with them via live events.

    TNA Merch is also way up in sells.

    Also the 14 million dollars sponsorship package that TNA now has came from Eric Bischoff’s deal making via he is the EP of TNA and EEP for Spike.

    Stop thinking like a mark and start thinking like a business person. Hogan and Bischoff in TNA is good business and only a hater or mark would say otherwise at this point.

    You don’t have to like them but you should show them some respect and understand the need for those two men in TNA.

    @ Jason

    What’s intelligent about having a washed-up has been like Hogan hog the spotlight? YOu know, for a fact, that at least 90% of those guys that were down there in the ring with Sting don’t even want Hogan there. They did it because they HAD to. It’s their job. Hogan has been here for 2 and a half years, and the ratings haven’t gone up at all. TNA had their 1.5 rating his first night there, and that was because of pure excitement and speculation over what was gonna happen. I feel like TNA’s wrestling has gotten much better lately, and their current crop of talent that’s being showcased, with the exception of Garrett Bischoff, is great. The only problem with TNA is the shadow that Hulk is casting over the lockerroom. TNA doesn’t need a “GM” that was a wrestler like Hulk or Sting. They need to go get Scott D’Amore or someone like that and have them be the figurehead of TNA. Eric and Hogan need to just go, and they can take Flair and Garrett with them. Sting needs to either stay in the ring, or go to the WWE.

  • Jason

    1919 if you watched the show you would understand.

    It makes perect sense. Carter trusted Sting and Sting told Carter that the real Hogan was back after B4G 2011. Sting can’t handle Roode by himself or at least as only a GM figure so Sting tells Carter to give Hogan one more chance. Carter trusted Sting and gives in after showing concern about the idea but after a week of thinking about it gives in because it is best for business.

    Try watching the show every week to understand how a story is told in an order. I know you are used to the WWE style of story telling which is simple story telling but you might want to try and open up your mind to more intelligent storylines.

  • 1919dpg

    how is hogan still in tna after having commited major business fraud when he took over. why would dixie rehire him as gm?? makes no sense.

  • StocktonJoe

    Last week Sting “stepped down as General Manager,” and Dixie offered the job to Hulk Hogan. This week Hulk “thought about it,” and finally accepted the job. Next week, we will see tantalizing shots of Hulk and Eric Bishoff in “secret consultations” (conveniently video taped for our viewing pleasure). The only question is “will Hulk turn on Dixie on Impact Wrestling, or will Hulk wait for the next PPV to turn once again?”
