    You gotta give it to Hogan, he knows how to create publicity. I mean he suddenly comes out with a story about attempting suicide and a week later he signs with TNA.

    Really, those two things should happen in reverse order.

    Have to say if they play their cards right this could work out for them.

    TNA has a lot more talent than WCW had from about 2000 onwards.

    If they can provide a mix of Good Wrestling and 18 plus entertainment I reckon they could take it to WWE

    I can see them falling in to the same trap as wcw did, you have to wonder what roles Scott Hall and Sean Walterman are going to have.

    200 onwards...what, until Spring 2001?

    Whatever long term effect all the changes may have, in the short term it has worked as a statement of intent. Whenever they did something big before, it wqas always one person...Sting, Christian, Angle all came in one at a time tobig fanfare, but quickly had to carry the expectations of the company as a lone figurehead (if you ignore Jarrett), but this time, they've made a statement with Hogan, Bischoff, Flair and Hardy in one night, and now the added arrival of
    Spoiler:
    Kennedy and Kendrick
    , all shows a much stronger sense of purpose.

    If they can work those guys well alongside other newcomers like Wolfe without dumping on the likes of Styles/Joe/Daniels/Angle/Abyss/Beer Money Inc/MCMG then this may be a good step for them. I'm expecting Hogan and his primary sycophants (Who you'll notice I haven't named) to be gone by the late summer at worst, but the others could be good additions.

    And I think they may be looking at thimngs this way - there's been no attempts to integrate old and new bar Nash, so this could be Bischoff saying "this is how an invasion should be done", then shedding the nWo 2010, Nasty Boys and Hogan, along with some of the older guys like maybe Sting/Steiner/Angle to leave the guys who can carry on long term ton take over.

    It would be good if they went that route, it would be a shame if Wolfe (one of The Stig's favourite wrestlers) got burried by the new talent as Taz did when the radicals came in, but I doubt Hogan will only be around until the summer (which right now feels a long way off!). He's a smart man and no doubt has negotiated a few title reigns in to his contract as well, brother!

    The names in the spoiler are the sort you want to see signing.
