Earlier this week, he wrote:

“Perfect timing to start serious training again,last time around the block for me so this is gonna be really intense,transformation time. HH”

      Chump Hogan has been 25 years past his expiration date in the ring.

      Who are these chumps asking for Hogan to get back in the ring, shoot yourselves.

      • Ice

        those chumps must be young and never were old enough to see him in the 80s, 90s, and early 00s

      Hogan realizing he’s to “beat up” to get back in the ring is the first thing HH has said/done since joining TNA.

      Thumps up if you want to see hogan wrestle and thumbs down if you don’t want him to wrestle

        I haven’t liked the Chumpster since he beat the Iron Sheik for the title.

      • TheDude

        I don’t want to see him at all.

      Watching Hogan wrestle nowadays is like watching a nursing home compete in the Olympics. It’s pointless, why should he be able to stroke his ego when there is an entire roster of young talent that could be getting their names out? Hogan should just be an exec and stay off TV, his “brother” thing is about 30 years past its prime.

        “Watching Hogan wrestle nowadays is like watching a nursing home compete in the Olympics.” LOL!!! Best thing I’ve ever read on this site!

    • TheDude

      Another thing. If TNA wants to be relevant, they NEED to focus on the young guys that weren’t in the WWE. If I want to see Jeff Hardy vs Bubba Ray Dudley then I will watch old WWE matches when they were still good. TNA are the collectors of washed up WWE talent. It’s getting sad, lmao and now they are collecting washed up MMA fighters as well. TNA is on a one way track to nowhere, and it will stay that way as long as they stick with has beens.

        Before hogan and bishoff came to TNA, TNA was really good. The ring was different, the matches were entertaining, the storyline were good, and all the wrestlers wrestled.

        Now TNA is pure crap. I am not a troll that wants to bash a wrestling company but you guys have to agree with me.

          What a load of garbage.

          TNA was arguably at its worst long before Hogan & Bischoff came along. Reverse Battle Royale? Last Rites Match? Wanking Midgets? Voodoo Kin Mafia? Pac Man Jones? Vince Russo? Ring any bells?

          Yes, there has been crap since Hogan & Co. came along, but TNA is probably the best it’s ever been right now.

          Fanboys whine and moan about Hogan & Bischoff, simply because they can’t let go of WCW.

          Here’s a hint – let it go.

          Besides, they don’t have total control of the TNA product, believe it or not. They often butt heads with Dixie & Spike – who have just as much creative input. I’d argue that Dixie has been far more detrimental to TNA’s quality than Hogan.

          Also, let’s also conveniently forget the fact that it was Hogan’s idea to push Bobby Roode & Austin Aries – two of the best wrestlers today. Also, let’s ignore Bischoff’s ideas (such as realistic backstage interviews & segments, and a TV show-style recap) that have actually been ripped-off by WWE.

            Kage is really Dixie Carter trying to overhype her failing product.

          • jeffb

            Indeed sir.

    • Spencer Elliott

      I’d like to seem him wrestle Shawn Michaels again, that was fucking funny.

      Hogan needs to go back to the WWE and work with Vince again.

      GIRL DIED IN 1993, A MAN BURIED HER IN HER OWN home when she was still alive. The murderer chanted, “Toma sota balcu” as he buried her. Now that you have read the chant, you will meet this little girl. In the middle of the night she will stand at the side of your bed starring straight into your eyes. She will suffocate you… like she was suffocated. This story is sadly true. If you post this 5 differnt times she will not bother you
