I just read on 1wrestling that Hulk Hogan returns at the Smackdown tapings this week. I guess this was Stephanie's bombshell.

I don't really mind that, well, I don't mind yet.. It depends what program they put him in. If they put him against Angle at No Way Out for the title I'm going to be pretty damn upset.

Of course, the guy can always be used to put other talent over...bwahahaha.

Undertaker and Hogan back on Smackdown!? Well, there goes the neighborhood. Just when the wrestling and the writing were starting to get better. Maybe they will program Undertaker and Hogan against each other, so they won't pollute the rest of the roster. Better yet, mix the Dawn Marie/Torrie mess into it so all the negativity is countered in one place. The positivity that is Angle/Benoit could be set against it to prevent the formation of a black hole. ( )

Honestly...what did you expect the bombshell to be?

Rock wouldn't have been THAT much of a surprise since he was on Raw X and SAID he was gonna be back in a month or so.

Notably, though, Steph has one-upped Eric again, seeing as how Eric promised Austin but couldn't deliver him that night, whereas Steph promised Hogan and brought him out on the same night.

From the sound of things, they're setting up Hogan vs. Vince at Mania, which means that Hogan won't be champion(duh).

This is a good example of what is known as a "wait and see" attitude.

How this is gonna be different than his last nostalgia trip into the sunset that tanked ratings and buyrates is beyond me, but since I have yet to see it for myself I guess that's unfair.

I'm agreeing with CRZ here. I mean, sure, trends and statistics and ratings are trends and statistics and ratings, and maybe it's my relative newness to being a wrestling fan, but Hogan's return isn't necessarily a guaranteed end-all. I'm not saying either way of what will happen, but let's just see what comes.

FWIW, from the tapings it sounds like they're going to build to McMahon vs. Hogan, so I'm not ready to get too worked up in anger quite yet.

Hey, no apologies from for being pessimistic, a dick head, maybe even Richard Cranium... but CRZ and Talus, I do not see any positives about bringing Hogan in.

Now you can make the argument that he will spike up ratings and bring up buy rates. Yeah, he did the same thing for WCW right. BTW, What ever happened to that company?

So wrestling fans should have a wait and see attitude? Oh, give me a rain check. If someone told tomorrow you would be licking skippy peanut butter off a naked Estelle Getty, would you have a wait and see attitude?

Now lets see what happened!

"Hogan IS BACK. And receives an 8 minute standing ovation for all the great
1-800-COLLECT commercials he has been doing. He states that he is back for
one last runand will do it right this time, as "by the looks of things in
the back, I've got a lot of work to do".

Yeah, plenty of work to do for the crapster! More truth in one "worked" interview by Hogan then in his entire fanta I mean Autobiography!!!

"We all love shoot comments that
etc. etc. Out comes Mr. McMahon who is disgusted that this is the kind of
surprise"
So am I Vinny!

Stephanie had for him, but Hogan has a beatdown for Vince and away
he goes, leaving Vince in a pile in the ring."--WrestlingObserver.com

Well, I think the real pile walked away.

While I don't share such...negative views of Hulk Hogan, I thinks it's more "ahead to the past" for the WWE. Unless they use him for "put so-and-so-young-guy-over" again, it's just more old farts and old ideals clogging up the roster.

Some of us have been waiting for a Hogan/McMahon program for almost a decade now and welcome it with open arms.

However, with the writers they have now, it'll probably suck, but I'm more then willing to give it a try.

Jesus Christ, what do you people want??? It looks like Hogan will be with Vince McMahon, which keeps him WELL away from your precious Benoit and Angle and their title.

Hogan with Vince is something they can use. It WON'T hold down any young guys, unless you people really think that Vince was about to work a program with Crash Holly or something, and it fleshes out the card so that there is a bit more of everything for people to see. The cruiserweights will never be fighting for the world title, but does that mean that Knoble doesn't have a spot on the show? Hell no. I don't see how people can act (and since no one here knows the guy or knows much about what goes on behind the scenes, it IS acting) so hateful about Hogan as if on the way to work yesterday he kicked your mother down a flight of stairs.

You know who I think wastes time and talent? Randy Orton. I think Orton's useless, talentless in the ring, and generally hasn't shown me shit other than the ability to count to "97%" while holding his shoulder. Do I think that anything useful will ever come from the guy? Not at all. But I've been around here long enough to remember thinking that about Rocky Maivia and therefore I know enough to keep my mouth shut about shit that hasn't happened yet instead of playing the "who can be more outraged" game.

I swear I'm starting to hate Benoit and Angle strictly because of the conspiracy theories about how *everything* that happens is going to fuck them.

But..but..Heyman is the writer! How can it suck? Muhahaha..
Though when I read the spoilers I wasn't jumping for joy, I hope they did the same they did towards the end of his last run and not make him the focus (and I kinda assume they are clever enough not to do so) but a good role player.

And if WMx9 is his final bow, against Vince then I will be cheering him on like a mad man.

My problem with this is that they seem to be building Hogan-Mcmahon, and subtly hinting at Austin-Mcmahon. Come to think of it.....I have a feeling this is all going to be a SWERVE and Hogan will turn heel with Mcmahon to fight Austin at WM.

Geez.

Let the guy get his last match in over McMahon and ride off into the sunset like he wants to.

It's not like he's coming back in and saying that in his last match he wants to go over Benoit, Angle, Jericho, Booker, RVD, and Brock in a Gauntlet match. He just wants one last fuckin' hoorah, and I say let him have it.

Thankfully, it seems like some of us aren't getting worked up about this.

"Of course, the guy can always be used to put other talent over...bwahahaha."

Yeah, because look how he ran roughshod over Rock, Triple H, Angle and Brock last year! Oh, wait, that's right, he DIDN'T.

"How this is gonna be different than his last nostalgia trip into the sunset that tanked ratings and buyrates is beyond me, but since I have yet to see it for myself I guess that's unfair."

Uh-huh, because Hogan's nostalgia trip encompassed the entire promotion and tanking ratings had NOTHING to do with Austin's shitty storylines, the constantly-changing nWo line-up, The Rock's absence, Undertaker getting a run with the big belt, and the then-heatless Brock Lesnar being oushed to the moon. Nope, nosirree, it HAD to be all Hogan's fault because, hey, when the ratings drop it's GOTTA be the guy getting the massive pops that we all hate.

Oh, and...

Interesting idea Michrome, and I myself wouldn't have problems with that.

On a side note, with the return of Hogan, Austin, Rock, do you guys still believe they will bring in Goldberg?

No wait..please don't answer with 'yes because Hogan needs that one job back!'

Do you actually think that this will be Hogan's last match? People thought that at WrestleMania 8, too, and here we are 11 years later.

WrestleMania 20 is next year and I'll be surprised if he's not on the card.
