    Default Hulk Hogan's Contract to Expire October 1st

    Would normally post something like this in the general discussion thread, but obviously if Hogan is released it is likely to have a significant impact (no pun intended) on TNA's future. Via prowrestling.net:

    Hulk Hogan's contract with the company expires on October 1, according to multiple sources within the company. There is no indication that Hogan and TNA have come to terms on a new deal. Sources within the Hogan camp declined to comment on the matter.

    Powell's POV: It seems logical that Hogan worked out his original deal so that it would expire shortly before the Bound For Glory pay-per-view, as that would give him the most leverage given that it's TNA's biggest event of the year. I am not aware of whether TNA has an option to trigger a renewal clause as they did last year.
    IMO it would be better for all sides if TNA let Hogan go. He hasn't had any noticeable effect on ratings and his influence over the company has caused it to start bleeding money at a horrific rate, to the point where they cannot renew a huge amount of contracts.

    Hogan isn't really getting anything out of TNA either. Yes, he's paid a fair wedge, but he could get just as much doing promotional events or one off appearances with WWE - where he'd also get significantly more exposure.

    Are there any pros to Hogan staying in TNA ... ? He's still big abroad, I guess? But unless TNA are planning to set up in Germany or the UK it's kind of irrelevant.

    I think both parties would benefit tremendously from separating. He's not drawing, he's rarely mentioning Impact in media (and when he does, he usually says stupid shit like Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles are the future of TNA), and he's leaching money from the company while doing it.

    In all honesty, it's Hulk fucking Hogan. He can make money doing whatever he wants, wherever he wants. But as of now, he's not doing anything for TNA.

    There was a part of me that was rooting for Hogan to make a difference but its been 3 years and he hasn't done anything special. Before he arrived they had an awesome women's division, tag team division, x division, Heavyweight division but all of that has declined. I think it might be time for them to part ways because he's not producing at all.

    In my opinion stars have emerged since Hogan came to TNA, not sure how much is on Hogan's Shoulders. Bobby Roode, Austin Aries...

    How great would it be, at Wrestlemania 30, to hear the theme song of the man who started it all!

    Get the bum out of here. All he's done is get overpaid while making outrageous promises to revolutionize wrestling. He took away the six sided ring along with everything else that made TNA unique, and what? 0.8s! He's a bum and he's always about Hogan. Its always Hogan above the business. Don't just let his contract expire throw him in a garbage truck along with Bischoff.


    Wipe him down with gasoline, till his arms are hard and mean.
    From now on boy this iron boat's your home.

    Hogan should do a run-in or appearance at WM XXX and just be happy with a Legends deal where he's featured for DVD interviews, toys, and books with the company.

    I got it! TNA let's Hogan go, he goes to WWE, and TNA brings in Jim Ross to run the ship.

    I would prefer Hogan/Austin but your suggestion would be great too. I hope Hogan chooses not to go back to TNA, has one more big moment at WM 30, and then goes from wrestling for awhile.

    From Hogan's perspective it isn't really damaging him to any great extent - he's getting a truckload of money from TNA/Spike, meanwhile the vast majority of wrestling fans don't even know he's still active in any way because they have no interest in or knowledge of TNA as a company.

    TNA are the big losers in all of this, as always, and they need to let Hogan depart before he totally destroys what's left of their business.

    Sadly that's all it would be. Hogan can barely move.

    I think he'll sign an extension. I can't see him missing Bound For Glory.
    It's showtime, folks!

    I like it. Except I don't want Hogan going back to the E. I just want Hogan off my TV forever. But TNA should be talking to JR.

    Should be, but likely won't sadly. I think bringing JR in would make a world of difference.

    Once Hogan leaves, they need to get rid of Bischoff, and really take the company back to basics. They can't afford high priced talent right now and that might be the best thing for them. It almost forces them to develop new young talent and will make the product fresh again.


    Remember when people stayed On-Topic? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    Our luck Dixie will bring him back because she is too damn stupid to realize that even with his name power his time in TNA has not done what in theory she thought it would, DRAW.
