Hulk Hogan Talks About TNA Impact Wrestling Going Live

TNA’s “General Manager” Hulk Hogan recently answered several questions from fans about the TNA product.

Impact Going Live: “would solve 75% of the issues, but they need money to do it. He has “been beating that drum for the last 2yrs.”

Wrestling Needing A New Era: “Getting my head really wrapped around the fan business requests and how to transition Impact Wrestling beyond the Mania, Attitude era, nWo era. Not just grow in a black beard or just switch a title or just verbally say were changing, I’m talking about really changing [the] foundation to put wrestling in a whole new era. I know I came up with the idea, I’m gonna really flush it out before I drop the bomb on you Maniacs.”

    the thing is tna is lower ratingg now than they ever had. superstars was not even pulling in 1’s so they got taken off air. tna best ratings they did on thursday was over 1millions viewers. last week they pulled a 0.6 tna needs to fired hogan. hogan flair bischoff are all living in past. this is not 1980’s anymore hogan. ur not a draw anymore. tna needs fired hogan and all of his hasbeen friends.

    They need a Saturday night show like in the old Georgia Championship days.

    @ Adam…….TNA Could do a Thursday night war with Superstars and still lose

    I think they could succed going live but it cost more money doing that and if tna is really as low on cash as people say then they might not be able to. They should of never tried to go aginst raw they should of just stuck to thursdays or maybe tried going against smackdown they might have a better shot then. Althogh if they do start going live i could see vince moving smackdown back to thursday and start a thursday night war

    @StocktonJoe, I believe it was a live show every other week and they tried going head-to-head with RAW’s first hour, it failed badly.

  • The Ryder Revolution

    Never gonna happen brother! hulk, you may as well return to vince

  • ChrisDV

    They tried going live opposite Raw in the run-up to WrestleMania, which was the dumbest thing they could’ve done.

    If TNA go live, it needs to be on Thursday nights.

    Didn’t TNA try to go live a couple of years ago, and it DIDN’T work? If it didn’t work then, why would it work now? What’s changed? Don’t misunderstand, I’m all in favor of “live” wrestling shows. Of course, they’re not really “live” if they come on at 9:00 on the East Coast and 9:00 in the Midwest and 9:00 on the West Coast. But live tape-delay. I think it makes for a better feel to the show. And I DO have another questions. Is this a leak of Dixie’s “big surprise” promised for Slammiversary?

    Hogan was supposed to be the Ambassador for TNA. Getting them deals with companies they couldn’t get before he arrived. Now he’s stuck in the past wanting to run the company.

    His time is up. He needs to be fired.
