"NWA-TNA has come to terms with Hulk Hogan, who will be working what will no doubt be the promotion's biggest pay-per-view ever on 11/30.

The three-hour broadcast will be headlined by Hogan vs. Jeff Jarrett.

More details will be forthcoming."

EDIT: November 30th is a Sunday....

This means the chances of AJ Styles retaining aganist Jarrett are about 1 in a billion.

As our esteemed cfgb pointed out in his recap, the more likely scenario would appear to be Styles->Dusty, Dusty->Heel Jarrett, Heel Jarrett->Hogan. Whoo, and indeed, hoo.

Who said Hogan signed Long -Term?

Maybe it's a one-shot deal. WHo would give a title to a wrestler on a one-night deal?

J-E-doubleF... well two outta three ain't bad Hulkster... I am sure however that the WWE will come back with their own surprise... next week on Raw, Savio Vega v. Ric Flair!!!

Would anybody even BUY Styles going over Hogan? Hogan's more than twice his size! VINCE FREAKIN RUSSO dwarfs Styles! Imagine the comparison when the champ stands next to Hogan. I'd love for Hogan to give Styles the ultimate rub, but I'm seriously doubting the casual fan would buy it at all.

I have a VERY bad feeling that Russo's gonna try and re-enact the Bash at the Beach screwjob, which will fly over just about EVERYBODY'S heads.

And I'll bet Hogan doesn't get half the pop that Sting got a few months ago.

Can TNA handle Jarrett and Hogan? Who lays down?

If it means Russo is out, which it almost has to and if it gets them a tv slot than I'm all for it.

I think Raven vs Hogan would draw more intrest though.

I just can't see this really helping out NWA:TNA.

When Hogan went to WCW, there was the feeling of, "Whoa! The WWF icon has jumped companies. Let's check it out and see what happens."

Then when Hogan came back to WWE, there was the feeling of, "Whoa! Hogan has returned home! Let's check it out and see what happens."

Going to NWA:TNA, I think the feeling will be, "Oh, Hogan again? Does he need a paycheck? Are autograph-signings at bingo parlors next?"

NWA:TNA should have just passed on this and concentrated on getting their own people over instead of becoming WCW Jr. here with the checkbook.

This will be a trainwreck of epic proportions. I'm sure Russo will be so kind as to favor us with a "shoot" too.

The thing is that TNA has totally failed when it comes to getting a TV show, and they need to be able to point to something and say LOOK to a TV executive. The 2 guys out there that have that kind of name recognition are Rock and Hogan, and they ain't getting Rock. If Hogan ends up in even a babyface association with other young stars, it will be well worth it. I see the double turn of Styles and Jarrett happening at their match, and then Hogan aligning himself with Styles, leading to co-main events of Hogan-Jarrett and Daniels-Styles. Just the rub of Hogan with some of these guys could really help. Either way, if this is the path they take, Styles-Daniels should be the real focus. My hope is that some cable executive decides to take a shot with them, we need competition. I don't think Vince is very happy about this development.

Now that they brought in Dutch, you wonder how much creative power Russo has left.

Great news for TNA. Hogan is a draw. He just is. He's one of about three wrestlers alive today that most people who don't watch wrestling know who is. People will tune in to see him who normally wouldn't bother with TNA. And like Michromeeeee said, this is someone they can point to in order to get a real TV deal.

What TNA needs to do here is what the WWF did when they got Mike Tyson. Make the rest of the show as compelling as possible. People who tuned in to see Tyson stayed tuned to watch Steve Austin, and The Undertaker and Kane, and Mick Foley, and DX, etc. etc. etc. TNA needs to make this Hogan show packed with the very best wrestling they have to offer.

Which brings us to another potential matchup: Hogan vs Russo. Hell, I'd watch that with more interest than any of these WWE matchups involving non-wrestlers. At least there's an element of legit tension there.

Hogan is old & slow. Styles is young & fast. Take out Hogan's knees & keep him on the mat. Work for a submission. What's so difficult about that? I don't watch TNA, but I'm pretty sure Styles isn't a submissions wrestler, but to say "Hogan is big, so Styles can't win" doesn't jive. Or just have Styles using his speed to stay out of Hogan's reach. Stick & move, and go in for the kill when Hogan gets fatigued.

Big does not always beat small. Unless you're employed by Vince McMahon.

I seem to remember Rey as the "giant killer" in WCW, which the fans had not problems buying.

Remember what Hogan did to Billy Kidman. Keep AJ Styles far far far away from Hulk Hogan.
