Originally posted by HokienauticRajah now has another post up saying that VKM currently has no plans for Hogan at WMXX as he's still upset at Hogan's refusal to job again to Lesnar, and his request to wrestle as himself instead of Mr. America. So that might work things out for NWA-TNA anyway.
And at this time last year, didn't Vince have no plans to use Hogan at WM XIX because he wouldn't job to Lesnar at Survivor Series? Please. Vince may be pissed that Hogan was difficult, but he comes up with a WM idea for Hogan that he wants to happen, he'll get it done. Having no plans for him right now doesn't mean they're not trying to figure something out for him.
So what happens to Russo now? Supposedly, he left the company last week to pave the way for the Hogan angle, but what happens if Hogan never arrives?
LS: Alright, we hardly gotten any airtime and we still aren't over. Anymore ideas? GD: Can you stare at your hand and spin on your head? Or better yet, we can have you shilling HUNGRY MAN DINNERS! LS: That...is very disturbing.
Originally posted by Nate The SnakeThere're a few ways they can keep this going, at least for a while.
Hogan doesn't have to wrestle, he could phone/satellite in interviews bitching Jarrett out. Hell, he could even blame the knee thing on him somehow. In the meantime, Jarrett can do his "win the title" thing and actually, maybe, build up a somewhat credible reign while waiting for Hogan to heal up for the match... they could bring in Jimmy Hart for a shot or two, managing this or that one-shot wrestler to try and take Jarrett out in retaliation.
That sort of stuff won't last them too long, though, so hopefully (for their sake, not for the unfortunate fans stuck viewing a Jeff Jarrett/Hulk Hogan match) Hogan'll heal up fairly quickly.
Well, you certainly get the prediction prize this week. In fact, they did bring Hart in, and yes next week Jimmy is going to bring someone in to face Jarrett in a one time thing. Wow, you're not Jeremy Borash, are you?
Molly, Stacy and Daffney all in WWE? I suddenly lost all my will to complain about anything regarding the WWE. Hope I don't lose my street cred for this.

No, I'm not. However, I would like to take this moment to announce that I will win the Powerball grand prize and have a series of very fulfilling relationships with extremely rich and famous women.
Dammit, wasted my gift of prophecy on Jimmy friggin' Hart.

Except that Russo was replaced by Dutch Mantel. =)

Regal beating Rogan for best announcer is surprising but not surprising. Regal has a strong sentimental following because he was never used to his full potential in the ring, and he's a funny guy who has nothing to lose by making someone else look good.
