Why would they want Hulkamania back when it's already been proven twice now that the only one who makes money off it is Hulk Hogan - because what comes with Hulkamania is a whole lot of extortionate diva demands and concessions. It's not worth TNA's trouble.

Seems to me even the WWE are having a good old think about that as well.

One: haters gonna hate
Two: Hogan makes money
Three: Carters throw money away as tax write-offs

Conclusion: Your comment is invalid.

With someone who is not ambraindead ditz playing with her parents expendable income, Hogan is an asset.

You know, Rico, talking to you about Hogan is like the conversations I had with Willy when he was an out and out mark for TNA. It gets to a point where I just let you have at it - and when you start using terms like Haters just because someone's not on the same love-boat you're on when it comes to Hogan, well, that's when it's time to call it a day...

The fact that you think I love the guy is proof you are just a hater. Stating the Hogan makes money and is one of the biggest draws ever is like saying Lou Thesz was a wrestler. It has nothing to do with my feelings about the guy. I am far too rational to make amstatement and have it reflect how I feel about whatever I am talking about.

personally, I do like Hogan, a lot more than I would have guessed I would have back growing up because he bored me back then. I was all about Savage and undertaker and Perfect. So who am I all about today? Punk, Wyatt and Ziggler, go figure. But I hardly love Hogan.

But I agree, some introspection 7s required here and until that hard deep look at personal grievances is investigated and confronted, no further discussion would be relevant.

Sometimes you're too sweet for words, Rico.

Under strong supervision and direction, Hogan is a huge asset. When he isn't allowed to "run wild" (pun intended) and abuse his ego, then he is a perfect professional, as he was until around 1993 or 1994, and again when he was with the WWE right before, during, and a time after Wrestlemania X8. He's one of, if not the, biggest name(s) pro wrestling has ever seen, which shouldn't and can't really be disputed.

He was given (keyword, not "taken") power during WCW that corrupted his professionality, much as it did Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. The majority of that blame can be laid on Eric Bischoff for not taking a firm hand in the matter. The same can also be said for Dixie Carter. She's obviously a mark for Sting, and in the same way can't control her big dogs. The hate for Hogan can only be justified to an extent before you should also have to lay at least an equal amount of blame on the people who let it become a problem.

Russ summed it up perfectly, Hogan is a asset to a wrestling company provided he is controlled and not allowed to do what he wants, both WCW and TNA threw too much money and creative control at him and he basically went into business for himself only looking after his buddies and serving his own ego.

That's why he's best in WWE, there Vince and Triple H will keep him in check and recognise the best ways to use him and maximise the value he has left, and he does still have value if used only on a limited basis.

Absolutely. 

The reason that Hogan left WWE the last time was because Vince kept him on a short lease and blocked Hogan from exercising "creative input." It had nothing to do with money or workload. Vince wouldn't let Hogan dictate how WWE used him. And that's exactly what Hogan needs; he needs somebody that will stand up to him, say "no" and mean it.

With someone keeping the reins on him, Hogan could a huge asset to WWE.

Quote According to a recent report by The Examiner, WWE Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan and WWE have come to a "verbal agreement" that would see Hogan return to the company in 2014.

The following is an excerpt from the article:

"WWE Examiner learned exclusively on Thursday from a trusted WWE source that Hulk Hogan is officially back with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Although Hogan has reportedly refused to sign a typical "legends contract," there is said to be a verbal agreement in place between Hogan and WWE that will result in Hogan returning to WWE programming possibly early in the new year.

There is even talk of Hogan returning as a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble.

"We knew this would happen at some point," the source tells Examiner. "It's my understanding that there isn't a contract in place, but there's a verbal agreement that will move forward. It's just a good fit for everybody involved, especially with the milestone WrestleMania 30 coming up. Hogan needed to finish up his stuff with TNA and just come home."

Check out the complete article online at Examiner.com.

NOTE: It's worth pointing out that we have been unable to confirm the above report as of right now. We should have an extensive update on this story on Monday morning, so until then, take the above information as strictly rumor.
A dirt sheet issuing a disclaimer? That interesting.

But I have some difficulty in believing that Vince would work with Hogan on a handshake deal. The two have so much history together, I think both sides would want all the terms down in ink.

Hogan had better be getting in shape enough to get into the ring without the elevated entrance ramp.

I'm curious as to how he'd take the bump over the top rope when he got eliminated...
