Hulkster lets us know why he signed with TNA, rather than with WWE again

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.”

If you’d like to hear him talk about juicing [steroids], and his recent book, head on over to Time.com to read the full interview.
