    ChrisDV . . . TNA’s writng is bad? Have you been watching WWE over the last year?

    As for the rest of you little know-nothing snots . . . Hulk Hogan was, is and ALWAYS WILL BE a mountain-top ICON in the pro-wrestling business. Imbeciles like “Corey” above are a prime example of the kind of immature, nonsensical TROLLS who love to come on here and slam someone who has achieved more success in his career than little “Corey” could ever dream of accomplishing. classic textbook projection at it’s finest.

    If Hogan wants to perform for the fans again, then who are ANY of you to be flappin’ your gums about “nobody wants to see it?” You’re all the same NOBODIES who were ranting about how TNA would be done within a year of Hogan/Bischof coming in. Sorry skippy … TNA is doing just fine and will continue to do so – DEAL WITH IT.

    Good God, some of you make me laugh.

    hogan your a fucking idiot!!! nobody cares when you wrestle now. its not the 80s. just because hogan gets in the ring does not mean impact will get better ratings. he is, was, and always will be a terrible wrestler. he knows how to make money and use people to make money, but other than that nobody wants to watch him in the ring. if he dies in the ring itll be the first time in years people actually care about one of his matches!

  • ChrisDV

    Thing is, TNA’s writing is so bad that we’ll probably just think it’s kayfabe if Hogan died in the Impact Zone.

    Hogan dying in the ring might draw????

  • Ronald

    Yep, exactly what TNA needs. Go against doctor’s orders and have possibly the most famous wrestler of all time die or become completely crippled inside their ring. Yeah, that’ll help business. Please, hire new management and quick!

    The thing is if cena (not a fan) doctors told him to stop wrestling. cena would listen to his doctors because he is smart. hogan and flair are going to die in ring.

  • Charles Spears

    Hogan still thinks he is the biggest draw in the industry, it is a shame that John Cena has surpassed him in popularity. Hogan, it’s time brother that you’ve hung up your boots and tights and retire for good. Because the next injury he suffers, could permanately paralise him for life.

    Last WEE’S ? LOL

    But really Hogan is an idiot.

    @ Gary

    I agree, I can see the end of Hulk Hogan be in the ring. This really could be his LAST match.

  • Stevie

    Wiring his mouth shut isn’t wishing him harm. It’s wiring his mouth shut. He’s not saying “I hope he dies in fire”. Maybe this will humble him so he will keep his mouth shut.

    Honestly, I do see Hogan dying in the ring because he just doesn’t stop when he should have stopped. It’s the reason why Edge will always be better than him and I’m not even an Edge fan.

  • Gary

    John, stop dude, not liking a wrestler and wishing a injur to him is 2 different things…

    I still seeing Hulk Hogan &/or Ric Flair dying in the ring

  • john

    Perhaps the doctors will have to wire Shane’s mouth shut…forever. It would do us all a favor.

  • !?
