For me TNA was at it's peak in 05-09. I'm a big Jarrett, Christian, Rhino and Raven mark so those guys as main-eventers was awesome. I also loved the storylines like Abyss home-invading Christian and the whole Abyss/Chris and "Father" Jim Mitchell. The first year and a half of Kurt Angle was unbelievably good, Joe-Angle was flawlessly built for the first 6months.

I remember when I took an old white t-shirt and wrote on it in black marker "Don't Fire Eric."

Victoria aka Tara aka Lisa Marie Varon is now with ROH feuding with Maria Kanellis.

Steen vs Bennett is pretty good.

Report: Hulk Hogan Returning To WWE

WWE Examiner learned exclusively on Thursday from a trusted WWE source that Hulk Hogan is officially back with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Although Hogan has reportedly refused to sign a typical "legends contract," there is said to be a verbal agreement in place between Hogan and WWE that will result in Hogan returning to WWE programming possibly early in the new year.

There is even talk of Hogan returning as a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble.

"We knew this would happen at some point," the source tells Examiner. "It's my understanding that there isn't a contract in place, but there's a verbal agreement that will move forward. It's just a good fit for everybody involved, especially with the milestone WrestleMania 30 coming up. Hogan needed to finish up his stuff with TNA and just come home."

In recent days, WWE has been emphatically relying on Hogan's image to promote its newest video game and the thirty years of WrestleMania mode. Clearly, nostalgic WWE fans are loving it. And they're about to really love what comes next - Hogan's return.

For well over two months now, Hogan has purportedly been training furiously for a return to the ring. By all accounts, he will be ready by January for a limited in-ring run.

Ironically, just yesterday, a meet and greet opportunity with Hulk Hogan scheduled for November 8th went up for auction on the Charity Buzz website. Included in the package are tickets to an upcoming WWE event. Even the photo of Hogan features the legend wearing the WWE title.

So, are you happy with the news that all signs point to Hulk Hogan returning to WWE?

Hardy and Rhino have been MIA. Corino will be back. The Brisco are still around but now opt to work solo with Jay being a main eventer.

I hope that the rumours of Billy Corgan buying TNA come to fruition. He would definitely make TNA an alternative to WWE.

I would be very bad. Does Corgan either really know pro wrestling business or have a shit load of money? I believe he has neither.

He's a lifelong fan, and was offered to buy ECW by Paul E. and turned him down (despite being a HUGE fan), so he definitely has business acumen. He is a millionaire, but the money would be coming from investors (just like the proposed Jarrett and Bischoff deals).

He owned/owns Resistance Pro Wrestling, which didn't seem to be anything spectacular, even with an impressive number of indy stars. Sounds like what they call a "money mark".

Impressive? There roster seemed bare bones to me. I always looked over the cards and saw barely any recognizable names (even from the PWI500). The fact that he turned down an off from Paul E. himself to buy TNA should prove that he's no money mark.

First few shows they had Colt Cabana, Davey Richards, Briscoe Bro's, Kyle O'Reily, Rhino, The Sheik, El Generico, Harry Smith, Petey Williams, Necro Butcher, Kevin Steen, PAC, and Teddy Hart all appearing. That's a near ROH show there.

And since? He's no "money mark," look at the shows now, he's not putting that kind of money into it.
