According to an interview with Time.com, Hulkster said that his main reason for wanting to come to TNA was to help the younger guys.
“”When I woke up and realized I should be my own man and be responsible for being happy, I realized I still have a lot to contribute to the wrestling business,” Hogan said. “And jumping into TNA and being a part of that company is huge. I have a chance to give back and help these young wrestlers who don’t understand the business and the art form.”
Yeah, just ask Billy Kidman how well being in a program with Hulk will help your career. Of course, Kidman rarely leaves his mansion except to headline Wrestlemanias.
Although, I do have to agree with Hulk when asked about the difference with the current generation of wrestling;
“The business moves so much faster now. It used to be if Andre the Giant and I had a feud, it’d probably play out six or seven months later at a big event. Nowadays, if Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan have a feud at 9 o’clock, it’s usually over by 9:30. It’s a story-telling art form to create emotion and drama and I just think a lot of that is lost.”
