Today I saw that oursocalledsport.com has closed, with a message (written on yellow background with red lettering) written on the front page:
From the OUR so-called SPORT Message Board:
YOU GUYS ARE PATETHIC!
Are you guys serious? This favorism towards Hogan that you have going here seems so bogus. Are you guys being sarcastic? Am I missing the joke? Can somone let me in on it? Because I find nothing funny or good about Hogan walking around with the undesputed belt. The man can't even take a friggin' bump for christ sake! So what if he gets a a big ovation? A man who can't deliver a decent match shouldn't be champion. The reactions Hogan has been getting are more about nostalgia than nothing else. Just like you guys, marks think it's funny that Cartoonish Hulk Hogan is champion. Wrestling looks so fake when he is wrestling. He just plain SUCKS and I know that deep down you all know that it's a step backwards that Hogan is champion. It's like 1988 all over again! Yeah, I am an Internet Smark and I apreciate funny but this Hogan @#%$ ain't funny or amusing at all!!!
Well you know something, brothers, Hollywood Hogan made the wrestling business what it is today. If you turn your back on Hollywood Hogan, then you're turning your back on the entire business and everything related to it, including OUR so-called SPORT. And if you turn your backs on us, we see no need to continue updating the site.
OUR so-called SPORT is now officially shut down. You fans can stick it, brother!
Ohhh, kay. So, the guys over there decided to close down because they wanted to show favoritism to Hogan? Or because some jackass bitched at them for doing so?

Some sort of TNA/NJPW partnership has been in the works for a while, and I guess this is the first formal announcement of it. I'd expect an subsequent announcement about a TNA G1USA Tournament to send two (or around that number)
