Report: WWE Talent Reacts to News of Hogan Signing With TNA

Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE employees and talents aren’t making a very big deal about the news of Hulk Hogan signing with TNA, and that the mood backstage at the Smackdown taping last night felt like most people were down-playing the situation.

We exclusively reported this morning that Vince McMahon was apparently furious when he heard the news of Hogan announcing his TNA signing at Madison Square Garden, so McMahon’s anger may have been one of the catalysts for people within WWE maintaining a low profile about Hogan’s TNA signing.

Additionally, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that most people backstage in WWE have been discussing how Hogan can help TNA by working with certain talents, and questioning whether or not he ultimately will help the company considering he has a history of refusing to put people over.
