TNA Experimenting with Gutcheck, Fan Voting Next Week, Brooke Hogan Promo

    This Brooke Hogan idea is awful period….even if you’re not a wrestling fan and just know her from VH1. How could any sane person think this equals ratings???

  • Tyler(:

    My bad ant, thought you said something about watching it just cos it’s on cable. I was wrong.

  • Tyler(:

    Don’t know what the fuck you’re on about ant, you think you’re so “hardcore” and shit.

    I’m from outside of the US, I don’t watch ROH on TV, genius.

  • kitkrock

    I would like to suck Brooke Hogan’s nipples.
    I bet her fake tits make her nipples hard as rocks.

  • ant

    chris shut the fuck up tyler u too and ill shut both of u guys up by saying i watch roh cuz it appears on cable tv now and honestly SOME not all of it,is kinda wack so thats 3 companies wit wack elements in all of them so theres no making u 2 guys happy regardless

  • Chris

    I watch any wrestling I can get my hands on. Shimmer, CMLL, AAA, WWE, TNA, ROH, WOW, TWF, NJPW. Most of them I can only order on DVD to watch but I at least watch other things besides just WWE. That is my biggest problem with wwe fans. That and how they act like their shit don’t stink.

  • Billy Zane

    How many of you watch ROH? Or order Dragon Gate USA tapes? Do you really watch “all” wrestling, or just what’s on & convenient?

  • Tyler(:

    You say you’ve watched it for 27 years, which means you’re obviously over 30, so I’d of thought someone of your age would grow the fucking hell up, and shut up about TNA, TNA’s Lawsuit and how everything to do with TNA shines in silver, while WWE’s a shitheap.

    I watch other wrestling, including TNA, but dumbass TNA Marks like yourself make it a more laughable product.

  • Chris

    This is why WWE marks are the worst. You guys are not wrestling fans because if you were you would watch all wrestling and not just WWE crap. BTW I watch WWE crap and have for 27 years now but fans like you are pushing me more and more away from the whole WWE product.

  • Tyler(:

    What do we do Chris? well, we read your comments that promote the hell outta TNA. that’s enough charity on my behalf.

  • scooter

    your right next time I’m on jimmy kimmel I’ll give them a mention

  • Chris

    At least she is working her ass off promoting TNA Impact. What the fuck do you guys do?

  • rko

    No need to do a promo for her. TNA just looks more desperate than they already are. While she’s hot and is probably not a great singer, she has absolutely no experience in wrestling more importantly has not paid her dues. Even if she’s not being brought into a wrestling capacity, she’s hogan’s daughter, so what? Wtf has she done? Absolutely nothing. Terrible way to bring her in. They were better off working it off in an angle, but no they just had to just bring her in like she’s some type of big name already. The hulkster is delusional.

  • MJ

    she can’t sing!!!!

  • DJK

    How can TNA use the Real American song?

  • Tyler(:

    She’s a singer.

  • NO!NO!NO!

    stop with the hate…brooke needs to work to live just like the rest of us in the world do

  • BlaH

    Brooke knows wrestling……. LOL
    Brooke Hogan on getting into the wrestling business: “I love that I get to prove people wrong, because people think ‘Oh it’s Hulk Hogan’s daughter.’ But I have seen behind the scenes. I have heard the meetings. I have watched the creative process. I mean I am the best intern there is. I’ve been around it for so long. Me and Dixie Carter were throwing around some ideas and as I was doing that, she was like ‘you know more about this than I thought you would.’ So that’s how the whole thing came about. My dad didn’t actually even know that I was talking to her about doing this. Actually I think I gave him a heart attack.”

    Brooke on meeting with Dixie Carter: We have been working together for the past year and a half on my music and we would always have lunch and creative meetings about my music. But it would always turn into wrestling, and she would always tell me about what happened on the show that night. I would then throw out an idea and she would say ‘ I had no idea you knew so much about it.’ I’m like, ‘Duh.’ I came from the household that the main plans were going on in. She said ever since Karen Jarrett left and isn’t managing the Knockouts any more, we haven’t had anybody to wrangle them in. I’m so busy on focusing on everything else, do you think while you’re recording your album, you can take a day or two out of the week and come help me out the girls?’

    “So I said, ‘Man I always said I wouldn’t get into wrestling.’ Not because I didn’t want to, because I love it, and I’m not the type to worry about public opinion. I just thought it was such a humongous deal for me to get into wrestling and I knew there would be so many people hating it or loving it. It’s more about helping Dixie who helped me with my music. She is bogged down with so much. It’s like where do you find a woman who knows wrestling as much as I do and who has been around it so long, to be able to trust and make decisions that you would make. There is no one out there right now in the business that can kind of take the load off Dixie and trust to make the right decisions. I don’t know how long this will last.”

    What can we expect from the Knockouts division: “I think everyone is forgetting that they have a story and they have drama in their lives. What I admire so much about TNA is right now fans think that they know wrestling. They are like ‘oh everything is set up, all the storylines, all the plans, it’s a soap opera for men.’ And its true, that’s been happening for years in the wrestling business. What TNA is doing now is, and they couldn’t do it without whats really going on right now, these girls, they all actually have drama happening.

    “There are people that are divorced, both working for TNA, dating other people. There is craziness going on. What’s great about TNA is that they are going back to real life and these matches are going to be between people who really have something to fight out. If they want to hurt each other, that’s their thing. But as far as I’m concerned we are making this more real. That’s why I’m coming in. There are personal issues behind closed doors that we need to resolve.”

    Thoughts on her dad Hulk Hogan: “I think when he saw TNA, he saw a baby egg that he could crack and make something of it. It takes years and years and years to grow a company like Vince McMahon. The whole time Vince was growing his company , my dad was right there next to him. My dad worked with Vince Sr, when Vince Jr came in and he asked my dad to help him. So my dad for years helped Vince run WWF. My dad was there for the whole thing. I don’t think people realize that he was behind some of the creative stuff and storylines. My dad is just so seasoned. I think if TNA had 20 years under their belt, the PR, and the machine, and the publicity that Vince McMahon has, I think actually they could run neck and neck. But the thing is, it’s a little boutique company that they are trying to grow slowly and it doesn’t happen overnight.”

    On what Knockouts could carry the division: “I think Velvet Sky is incredible. I think she is really, really good. ODB I think has already made a name for herself. I think she is self-sufficient. She has her little gimmick. She is a little raunchy. That’s what I love about her. But if you met Velvet in person, she is the sweetest, sweetest person. So polite. Such a sweetheart. That girl works so hard. She is dieting and training. She is wrestling in the ring even when they are not taping or filming. She is just working her butt off. I really think she deserves a push. I think she could be the next big thing in the Knockouts division.”

  • Tyler(:

    No Chris, she’s hot because you’re a hardcore TNA fan, to me she looks like her father.

  • Chris

    Brooke Hogan is fucking hot guys. Only a hardcore WWE fan would be gay enough to be against this.

  • scooter

    joey ryan gets to be a judge? so he gets to decide if he gets a contract I’m guessing he’ll say no.

  • 1919dpg

    just when tna is starting to get good creatively they have to bring in this dumb bitch.

  • Tyler(:

    Oh Eric, silly boy, you just spoke about Vince in a positive way, expect alot of idiotic replies.

  • eric

    brooke hogan signing is going to do nothing for tna. tna will still be underadar just like when hogan went on joy behart show talk about vince and his dumb book. same thing with brooke noone in mainstream media will know what tna is. tna will still be in hole moneywise. tna will still be doing low ratings. still be underradar with brooke in tna. brooke has no talent. she belongs in wwe with kelly and other bimbos who can’t wrestle. tna makes bad decisons. tna should have in 2010 instead of hiring self center egomanaic hogan. should have signed heyman he has great ideas. he could have really help tna put on mao. just like he did with ecw in 1997. tna makes one back mistake after another. vince makes great business moves. that is diffrence between dixie and vince. vince makes good business moves to help his company. dixie makes bad moves to hurt her company moneywise.
