On October 27, 2009 it was announced on TNAwrestling.com that Hulk Hogan had signed a contract to join Total Nonstop Action Wrestling on a full time basis where, partnered with Eric Bischoff, he would partner with TNA President, Dixie Carter. Many people disagreed on his joining with TNA and many people are still disagreeing. Well, I am one of those people.
In my eyes and in many others, TNA has taken a turn for the worst. This current recession we live in has not only hit the real estate businesses and other businesses, but it has also struck the wrestling business. With more Americans being in poverty than ever before, most of these Americans who are TNA fans are unable to go to the shows or order the PPVs. Let's be honest these shows are high priced and we all have other things better to care about like for instance, bills. But despite this recession, TNA consist to hire these big names like Hulk Hogan who are way past their prime. And i really do wonder what would TNA be like without this Hogan regime?
1. Ever since Hogan has joined TNA, he has insisted on bringing his friends who are just like him, WAY PAST THEIR PRIME! Wrestlers like, The Nasty Boys, X Pac, Scott Hall, Ric Flair, and Tommy Dreamer have all been hired by TNA to wrestle. But one thing that stands out the most is that, these old wrestlers are being paid big bucks and they can't even wrestle anymore. Without these washed up wrestlers, TNA originals like AJ Styles and Samoa Joe will actually have a chance to shine. And Christopher Daniels would actually still be there!
2. Now that TNA has hired all of Hogan's has-been wrestling friends, TNA has no choice to either give them a limited to time to appear at shows or to just continue to pay them a lot of money until they see no further use for them. But TNA is only screwing themselves, people like Sting and Kevin Nash want all this money without actually working for it. That only leaves TNA bankrupt in the process! Without these wrestlers who continue to make TNA lose a lot of money, TNA would be wealthier and they could then focus their time on other things like hiring a better creative writer and a better Booker.
3. Without these old wrestlers, AJ Styles would be AJ Styles instead of AJ Flair, the 6 sided ring would still be present, the X Division wouldn't be mistreated, and i guaran-damn-tee that the TNA Impact ratings would be a lot better. Even when Main Event Mafia was still a stable, the ratings were still better than this joke!
