E ValC sent along the following:
Hulk Hogan had an interview with Gimme Noise and on his blog one of the questions he asked was about him going to TNA
GN: You recently signed with an organization called TNA Wrestling. What made you decide to get back into the mainstream wrestling world?
HH: That’s a huge deal for me, man. I never thought that they would bring me in to like the Vince McMahon role with another wrestling company kind of like I did with WCW years back. I actually used to have this same role back in the day, except it was unofficial. Vince’s dad ran the league while I was down here in Minnesota kicking ass with Verne Gagne and when he died, they talked me into coming back. So I came back and found that Vince McMahon, who owns the company now, didn’t really understand the business. So I moved in next door to him in Connecticut and taught him all about lifting weights and riding motorcycles and partying like a mad man; and then I taught him about the wrestling business and making money. And now I’m doing that again with TNA Wrestling.
The reason I decided to get back into it is because I’m ready to flip this business over again. It’s getting real boring with only one company stuffing this programming down your throat and not allowing fans and the wrestlers the chance to make a choice, and I think it’s really important to be able to make that choice instead of just having one option and one option only.
