Hogan: "I'd have Hardy stripped of the title and put it on Roode"

Discussion in 'TNA iMPACT! (2011-2015)' started by Testify, Feb 21, 2013.

  1. In an interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine, Hulk Hogan revealed that he would have stripped Jeff Hardy of the TNA World Title and placed it on Bobby Roode so the champion could perform on the UK tour.

    "Dixie runs the company, but if it was up to me and it had been my decision, Bobby Roode would have been a great champion to have right now. The (UK) tour plus a champion makes sense; a tour with no champion doesn't make sense. [But] I choose my battles; some people look at the picture differently to how I do."



    Or more simple, you could just have Daniels beat him on the last show b4 the UK tour, like it SHOULD have happened.:facepalm1:
     
  2. Whilst I agree the title should have been on a star who could compete in the UK; there is no reason to make the president look like shit in public. I'm not sure why Hogan does this. Is he trying to get us to worship him for agreeing with a logical decision most of us cried out for? Is he trying to make Dixie look bad or promote some sort of "I'm trying to make things better, but there is a retard in charge" type message? You don't see Vince bashed in public like this and he has made far worse decisions.
     
  3. Either option would be better than having Hardy as champ.
     
  4. Why didn't they put the belt on Daniels then, since he had momentum and a match with Hardy right before the damn tour? I have a hard time seeing Hogan not able to convince Dixie to do that.
     
  5. This is what Hogan wanted to do but other factors will have been at play (Jeff says the most merch for them I reckon as an example) plus they filmed what 2 shows over here? What's the point in changing the title just to chop and change it a few weeks later when Jeff gets back?
     
  6. Having the champ on the tour, pretty much.
     
  7. And what does that achieve exactly? They sold out the tickets either way so financially it didn't help and not having the title on every show would help IMO, champions should be not an every day occurrence. Imagine if one every 4 weeks you see a champion live, it makes them feel special and the show feel bigger due to the big dog only showing up on that show.
     
  8. Although my complaints are a tad biased by the fact that I dislike Hardy and love Daniels, you know, they focus a lot on the UK and only go there once a year so I guess seeing the champ would be nice for them. Plus, if I'm not mistaken, they promoted Hardy and on the last second simply changed the card, that sounds wrong.
     
  9. Hogan, you're an arrogant douche. Go away.

  10. I'd have preferred Daniels too but I guess that's why we're not wrestling promoters.
     
  11. Daniels as interim world champ. I just prejack'd. The good part would be him losing to bully (as #1) then Bully Roode. God this is such a great option.
     
  12. said @Stopspot . We can agree to disagree, my only issue would be so many title changes so quickly. I love the whole champion every 4 weeks, but i'd rather see them on the mic 3 times, and 2 matches a month max.
     
  13. Never underestimate Hogan's ego - he has even claimed for years that he taught Vince McMahon everything he knows about wrestling. (I happen to think that Dixie IS a shit owner/president, for the record, and I find it hard to bother investing time into TNA as long as she's in charge, small minded as that might seem.)
     
  14. By reading this it seems like Hulk Hogan is bashing Dixie Carter, while I understand Hulk Hogan's point of view there's completely no reason to bash your business partner. You knew well enough as to what powers you'd have, the decisions you could make, etc, if you want someone as champion then discuss it with her. By bashing her it won't achieve anything, but it'll make you look like a cry baby.
     
  15. I too think she's a pile of shit but I just find it a bit much that the person she's grossly overpaying is making her look bad in public. Though, as you rightly said, never underestimate his ego.
     
  16. Hogan's entire life is a work. It's work for work for work.

    Bully calls him dad, and he replies with "lets do it BROTHER". Way to go HH.
     
  17. It's a little stupid to go there without champion but Dixie made the right decision, if Jeff was no longer champ he might go back to WWE
     
  18. Hogan is just breaking balls with DIxie.
     
  19. He is dad/brother after bully married Bork.
     
  20. Oh at least Hogan is better than Hardy. In WWE and TNA, both biggest champions are a shame for me.
