The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Hulk Hogan signing the deal with 2K Sports to be featured in WWE 2K14 generated much speculation regarding Hogan's future with TNA. While Hogan's TNA contract allows him to make outside deals, many took his signing the 2K deal as a public "slap in the face" of TNA. Hogan's current deal with TNA is said to be expiring within the next few months.
In related news, keeping Hulk Hogan off TNA TV for the past few weeks has been a significant cost cutting measure for the company. As we previously reported, Hogan is expected to return to TNA TV at this week's Impact tapings in Cleveland.
