Warrior and Hogan(lolwut) confirmed for brawl
TNA is so God awful and unwatched that Kurt Angle tells stories about people frequently asking why he retired from pro wrestling. I bet in TNA they were so psyched to get a Hogan that can barely walk let alone wrestle that they didn't even bother to add an exclusivity clause in his contract.
On the realz, as much as I abhor his corny gimmick, Cena seems like a true bro and he works his ass off for both the company and the fans.
If I remember correctly, Terry Bollea and WWE have joint ownership of the Hulk Hogan character when it pertains to different kinds of licensing.
I'd imagine this falls under that umbrella.
As for the state of wrestling nowadays, I'm quite enjoying the current youth movement within the WWE with Del Rio, AmDrag, Ziggler, Nexus, Corre etc.
I haven't watched any ROH since Final Battle 2010, but that show had some amazing matches in Richards vs Strong and Generico vs Steen.
PWG's apparently been putting on some stellar shows lately and how can you not love Chikara? If anybody is doing PG wrestling right, then it's them.
TNA on the other hand is a mess. Their roster has so much talent with guys like Samoa Joe, Motor City Machine Guns and The Pope, yet I switch over and see the Dudleyz fight each other?
And they even come to Japan and sully the latest Wresle Kingdom show?! Geez.
The demo was pretty fun.(I haven't played a really good wrestling game since No Mercy) A rent, not a buy. I stopped caring about wrestling about 5 or 6 years ago and I turned it over to USA the other day and saw The Rock and Stone Cold are back in some form...is wrestling doing so bad that they have to bring back old(movie stars) to sell the product?
I mean, Swagger's a joke. Punk is getting there. McIntyre's a joke. Miz is a joke and he's the fucking champion.
In short: yes. That is what they have to do.
