Since TNA has sold its soul to Hogan, Dixie Carter should bring the Hulkamania tour to Spike TV and let Flair and Hogan have one last televised hurrah with each other. Feud over the Legends belt. Involve tag-team partners, protégés, whatever’s necessary to minimize Hogan’s ring time. Do it old school, no crash TV, and cut lots of promos.
Would it work? Nah. It didn’t work in Australia, not really.
But, theoretically, the presence of Flair and Hogan might attract some old school types who have stopped watching wrestling, maybe some WCW fans. Present a good, compelling, old school product (what are the odds?) and you might keep some of those viewers.
(Have you noticed how often I’ve used the term “old school” in this column? It may be the final frontier. What’s old becomes new again.)
Don’t hate Flair and Hogan for trying to remain financially solvent by doing the only thing they’ve ever been successful at. Would you have them live in impoverished fashion to preserve your memories?
