First things first, I understand that every side has 3 stories (my side, your side and the truth) and despite drinking haterade I acknowledge I am just a fan, nothing more nothing less and could not do the stuff these guys do. I am just a critic.
So the world is in an uproar over Hogan vs Styles via Twitter? The issue is AJ has helped build TNA and Hogan walked in and gets a paycheck (a very big paycheck) and for what? His name that’s it. Should Hogan have been in the main event? NO! If you cant wrestle don’t get inside the squared circle. Obviously I am not the only person who feels this way, look at the BFG attendance. Especially in Philly where the fans are as REAL as it gets. The most important thing about this is Hogan started it, whether it’s a work or a shoot you just don’t put the company’s business out there like that.
For all you out there reading this (and I am sure I am going to take some heat) I ask what has Hogan truly done to make himself so great? He held the attendance record for years when him and ANDRE main evented Mania 3, where Hogan half assed body slammed the giant (Ken Patera who’s a lot smaller than Hogan did this years before that Mania). The greatest thing that Hogan did was join generations of fans. Abby The Butcher said it best, “Wrestling skips generations.” Meaning that every other ten years or so its over or its not. This is coming from a man who’s been in the business for 7 decades. Hogan and Hulkamania made it awesome to sit down with mom and dad and watch. KUDOS TO THAT, NOBODY COMES CLOSE TO THAT EXCEPT FLAIR. But besides a haymaker, big boot and leg drop what makes him so great? Today’s wrestling needs more than that especially when all you can do toady is just throw the haymaker.
Hogan is an American Icon, an American Hero and because of him I call everybody “brother.” I am a Hulkamaniac and I am NWO 4-Life. Because of him I still say my prayers and eat my vitamins. Nobody else in the history of the sport has ever had the “IT” factor like Hogan, but please Hogan realize your time is up and stop pissing on your legacy because its hard to watch and it’s ruining TNA!
