    Obviously, Hogan is going to have some influence. I am told he has suggestions of talents he'd like to see brought into the company but there are no wrestlers or personalities 100% set yet and there is no one that TNA is required to use as part of the Hogan-Bischoff deal.

In a battle of online wrestling journalism credibility, I'd side with Dave Meltzer over PWI. Plus, even Meltzer says Russo et al aren't being replace. That doesn't stop 'em havign their power sapped into irrelevance.

I'm just trying to think of a time after his initial WWF run where bringing Hogan in was good for the long-term status of a company. Is there an example? WCW had some good times with him, but his role in its eventual destruction can't really be ignored.

The other thing to consider is the happiness of TNA's existing crop of stars. If AJ, Joe and co. are already having problems with their booking, I can't see this doing anything to cheer them up.

The more I've actually thought about it the more I see this either not working or working before falling apart really quickly. TNA has been all over the map since day one Hogan and Bischoff aren't going to change that.

The one person I'd like to see take over this roster, and the one person who I think could turn it around and give it a direction of some kind is Paul Heyman. At least he is creative and knows how to make interesting characters. He's put his fair share of stinkers out there, but at least I'd feel like the younger more unknown talent actually stood a chance.

It's really hard not being biased at this. I mean, we have quite the combustable element here: Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan, and Eric Bischoff, reunited?!?! Wow, that could be something. It could be nothing, too...but who knows?

But keeping in mind with the biased thing; I remember Hogan coming into WCW and squashing their champion (Flair, right?) on his first match. I'd almost expect the same thing to happen here. If I were AJ Styles, I'd be kinda concerned.

Also, if Flair were to join up, I wouldn't be opposed to it. Flair had a good majority of his success with the NWA and eventually WCW, so being back in a company that got its start in the NWA sounds like a great way to offically wrap up his career. THough, the WWE, or WWWF was a member of the NWA, right?

I'm not sure how to feel about this.

On one hand, it's a huge positive for TNA. We're talking about TNA. People who aren't hardcore wrestling fans and just know it as "wrestling" are talking about TNA. TNA was a trending topic on Twitter for a while the day it was announced. The only other wrestling mention as a trending topic I've even seen on Twitter in my time on it was "Bob Barker." Granted, Bob Barker joining TNA might make me more interested... and he's in about the same shape. It's also slightly good for WWE, as it'll get a little more attention to that Hogan DVD set in a few weeks. Perhaps it'll make WWE ramp things up at least a little bit. Bischoff can most likely only help. Universal Studios will enjoy the extra people who might come in for Hogan in the Impact Zone, and anything to battle the mass that is Disney World is good for them.

The bad part is Hogan. His reputation outweighs his name. If he wrestles, we expect him to always go over, whether he should or not, and be the biggest politician in the game. I have no doubt half (or more) of the TNA roster are no-names to Hogan and I don't see him laying down for them. The exceptions are some of his old WCW and NWO buddies. A lot of us half-expect to see one or both Nasty Boys, Beefcake, and Zeus appear battling for the TNA Legends title in weeks.

If they try for a Monday night war, they fail miserably. TNA is not in the same league as WCW during the war.
