What does the WWE want from Hulk Hogan?

Rating: 4 votes, 2.00 average.
I'm looking down at my phone and then i hear something come out of my TV during Raw. I go to my brother and simply say:

"What the fuck? Did i just hear Hulk Hogan come out of his mouth?"

At this point, i was likely to say that WWE just bought TNA and was allowed to mention their wrestlers by name. I knew that was stupid it was just a joke. But with all seriousness, what does WWE want from the Hulkster?! This is the third time i can remember off of the top of my head that he has been mentioned in some way, shape, or form on WWE programming. Let's describe all of the accounts where Hulk Hogan was mentioned in WWE.

1) When the three stooges were on Raw.

If you weren't already traumatized and deprived of our precious wrestling, please go watch this garbage. On a side note, this video shows one thing: WHEN THE IWC SPEAKS, ONLY THE IWC LISTENS. Basically, we don't want celebrities, and they throw Will Sasso and the three stooges into our show. What the fuck WWE? The IWC is pretty smart and they are doing your jobs for you! Just listen to us! Who am i kidding, we are just computer screens to them. Anyways back to the point. Real American hits and Sasso comes out doing a Hogan impression. He didn't say Hulk by name so there was no clear sign of a law suit or legal trouble. But to say the least, we were all confused.

2) John Laurinatis calls himself the "Hulk Hogan of Japan."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl9XG2LTtfE
When John Laurinatis came out and kicked the crap out of John Cena, I was honestly surprised. I was expecting an Eric Bishoff where he looks horribly stiff and unathletic and then the wrestlers do backflips like he got destroyed. But this time Johnny Ace looked like he was doing a routine wrestling ambush. Anyways, he gives this speech next week and calls himself the Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, and The Rock of Japanese wrestling. Im starting to get suspicious because the Hulkster twice?

And then I read this:

3) Hulk Hogan gets his own video on wwe.com
http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/5...hogan-wwe-more
The article on this site talks about the video in the third bullet point. When i read it, i made the decision to refuse to watch it. Why? Because these references aren't supposed to happen. THREE TIMES THE HULKSTER! They are promoting a man who isn't even under contract with them! This whole situation has my mind going insane, but i have a couple of theories as to why Hulk Hogan has been on the WWE for a random reason.

Theory 1: WWE Wants Something From Hogan
From an article written on this site describing the New York Post's interview with Hulk Hogan, he says this about WWE:
"I remember the last time this build-up happened. Vince McMahon had Shawn Michaels dress up as Hulk Hogan with a walker and say ‘You're getting old brother.' Then we came with the NWO idea and I feel the same thing now. (WWE) is banging me on TV again, having The Three Stooges dressing up as me, showing footage of Brock Lesnar beating me last week. They're worried about something."
This isn't entirely my theory, but maybe WWE is worried. The only reason i have this up here is because it is Hogan's own words.

Theory 2: The Ric Flair HOF Deal???
Could this be?! Maybe these references to a TNA talent is because they let WWE use his name and previous gimmick? If this is true, so is another thing: TNA's management is absolutely retarded. Its almost like they said "Wait one legend isn't enough, show off Hulk Hogan a couple of times to promote our show indirectly and then you can have him." Possibly they are trying to promote Hogan in an attempt to promote TNA indirectly because he is the "general manager"? Who knows, this is all stupid anyways.

Theory 3: WWE is Attempting to steal another past star.
The only reason this is a possibility is because the returns of The Rock and Lesnar and Johnny Ace is getting in the ring and the consistently annoying rumors of Stone Cold Steve Austin vs CM Punk are becoming the only interesting stories WWE has to offer. They have no confidence in their young guns. They keep relying on legends and past names to boost themselves. And besides Lesnar's loss at Extreme Rules, the returning legends aren't putting over talent. And if anyone is bad at letting the new guys go over, its definitely the Hulkster.

Unfortunate for us, the IWC must guess and blog about all of the WWE's deepest darkest secrets. And this is one of them. Vince approves every show, so obviously he approves this. We just need to wait and pay attention to the news that will hopefully clear this up. But after seeing all of the signs and reading this, you have to ask yourself: What does the WWE want from Hulk Hogan?

Thanks for Reading guys, comments and personal thoughts always welcome !

    I believe Hogan signed a 20 year deal with WWE which is basically a merchandice deal where WWE can sell stuff such as DVDs, dolls, and so forth with his name and character attached which was why they still sold Hogan unreleased collectors edition DVD despite him leaving for TNA right before the release.

    I think the mentions of Hogan is just to take shots at him and to make fun of him. What does WWE want from him? Probably for him to get his head out of his behind and stop believing he was the one person who made wrestling. He believes he built the building in Stamford Connecticut when going there on one of his Hogan Knows Best shows. Does that idiot not realize that when he went to WCW that he almost put WWE out of business. Guys like Taker, HBK, Bret Hart, HHH, Stone Cold, and The Rock made this company what it is today. Not Hulk Hogan....he believes he and Vince made Wrestlemania. Just him and Vince. He didn't believe Piper had anything to do with Wrestlemania 1 success nor the rest of the card.

    Now he is in TNA creating a bunch of bullcrap believing he knows what he is doing. Believing he can take TNA to heights they never seen before. He did, but in the wrong direction. Lowest ratings ever for TNA in first 2 months he was there with Bischoff. Past week they did below a 1.0 when before he arrived TNA did a 1.3. He needs to swallow his pride and go back to the WWE. Make TNA better, WWE better, and Hulk Hogan better and less criticized. I've lost a ton of respect for Hogan since his arrival in TNA.

    Hey. Excellent Blog. This was one of the greatest blogs i ever read. Especially your little footnote at the end. Talk about some well thought out commentary. Isn't it horrible when people make comments like that? I mean, why comment about someone's personal feelings when it states, right there, clear as day, in the definition of a blog on dictionary.com, about opinions? It sucks when people do that, doesn't it?

    Great Stuff!!!

    I have to respectfully disagree here. Vince Mcmahon and Hulk Hogan made wrestling what it is today. Hulk Hogan made the WWE mainstream. WWE was never mainstream until Hulk Hogan rose to the top and became the face of WWE. Not to mention the Rock & Wrestling connection which happened because of Hulk Hogan's fame. I don't like the things Hogan says either but you have to admit that Hulk Hogan had a lot to do with wrestling being mainstream. The things Taker, HBK, Bret Hart, HHH, Stone Cold, and The Rock did in wrestling, Hogan did it first. Hulk Hogan is bigger than all of those guys you've mentioned and is often considered the biggest name of professional wrestling. No one has ever reached the heights of Hogan and I doubt anyone will.

    I'm not so much mad as I am feeling sorta like...WTF? What did I do to deserve that cheap shot from you? I felt that the vein way the blog you referenced was downing the Big Show, took away from what could have been a decent Raw Review blog. Regardless of whether or not blogs are there for people to commentate their opinions, I, as the reader, also have an opinion. And the fact that his statements about Big Show holding a title ruins that title's image, without any rhyme or reason other than, he hates The Big Show, takes away from the quality of a blog...IN MY OPINION. If he had any sort of valid reason or point as to why he stated that, I would have kept my mouth shut.

    You can't play trouble shooter. As long as there is this blog board, there are going to be people who agree, and people who disagree, with something in the blog. To quote Ben Affleck from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back..."As long as there is a Bluntman and Chronic Movie, people on the internet are going to have something negative to say about it."

    You don't need to sincerely apologize to me. Just, if you have an issue with something I write, or commented on, just hit me up with a private message. I took tons of heat for a blog where I took major cheap shots on someone and it was a shitty thing for me to do. It's not cool to put me...or anyone for that matter...out there like that.
