Do I think that Hulk Hogan will ever return to WWE? This is a classic, never say never answer IMO....BROTHER! Crazier things have happened BROTHER and one could theoretically see some sort of PR role for Hulk down the road. Who knows? Not something that I dwell on to be honest with you BROTHER.


Eh, why not?

He will always be WWE. Shit is in his blood; TNA wasted him like WCW wasted Bret Hart.

I don't mind Hogan in WWE.

The thing with him is, half the illusion of him as a huge star was the massive crowds and big, over the top productions. He looks incredibly out-of-place in TNA.

Yeah, ill agree ..

Hulk did take a step backwards in going to TNA but I can understand his reasoning behind going.

Hogan is used 2 such monster pops and there's no way that TNA can compare with their lousy ass fans @ the impact zone ...

I don't even know if VKM would take Hogan back after going to TNA ..

I mean he might just to further bury the competition by promoing their big face that changed their company ..

True that. Watching one of the biggest stars ever in front of such small crowds, many who don't pay to see him just draws attention to how far the mighty have fallen.

Quote What will Hulk Hogan's legacy be at the end of the day? I can't see why it won't be excellent. If Hogan is judged on his contributions to the business of pro wrestling then it's a no brainer. Hulk's legacy is intact IMO as I don't choose to judge him or anyone else by personal issues that happen in many of our lives.  
 
His legacy as a wrestler cannot be questioned, but as a person it can be.
 
Too many times he's put his foot in it saying or doing the wrong thing in his personal life.

Quote From Jim Ross Website

Will Hulk Hogan ever return to WWE? I have no idea. I assume any thing is possible. I can't see Hogan returning to wrestle multiple matches in WWE due to his health issues but regarding this talent and his future I simply don't know and nothing would surprise me.

 
No No a thousand times no he's old ass had the likes of Shawn Micheals and Randy Orton jobbing out to him and they had to make him look good no fucking way do I want to see Cena, Mysterio, Mctinyre or anyone else jobbing to him he comes back at all he does the job simple as that his popularity is no where near what it used to be and he should never be in a position where he can be the top guy ever again or anywhere with power because he cannot be trusted .

I wasnt a Hogan fan as a kid, I didnt like him nor did I dislike him, he was just there. Over the years I think Hogan has a bad rep for being shit in the ring but honestly I think he was just lazy. Because when he tried he could put on really good matches and when he was over in Japan he would really try tenfold. I came across a match on Youtube and if you guys havent seen it I think you should give it a look. Your opinion of Hogan as a worker may change. He pulls off a rolling arm bar and everything.

I'm just going to leave this right here.... This is the most hilarious thing I've read in a while... It just amazes me that someone is so much in love with Hulk Hogan.

While I disagree with the legdrop being the BEST finisher, the guy actually makes some great points about storytelling in the ring and the fact that it´s not really done anymore.

Totally agree. In 2012 a Hulk Hogan in his fifties who can't wrestle is no real use to a promotion like TNA aside from maybe drawing in a tiny amount of mainstream interest off the back of what name value he has left, but that is nowhere near enough to justify the huge salary TNA are paying him.

Hogan also seems to be out of touch with modern day wrestling, his promo-style is dated and he still relies on cheap pop tactics like tearing off his vest and posing. It's sad to watch a near crippled Hogan hobble down the ramp and then have young talent have to sell his feeble punches which are about all he is capable of now in his physical condition.

I really hope when his current deal expires TNA cut their losses with Hogan and save the money he is costing them, Hulk will be far better served to sign a Legends deal with WWE and make a few one-off appearances for them as well as hit the convention circuit.

Hogan making A WM comback would be fucking epic!

I for 1 love the idea of him signing a legends deal and doing some one offs. Obviously TNA didnt go nowhere with his acquisition and cutting the losses as you said Fletch would end up benefiting them in the long run. Maybe they can up their production values a little with the extra cash.

Really hope this happens. Hogans legend is dwindling week by week in TNA. IMO Hogan will always be WWE.
