– During an appearance on the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show Thursday morning, Hulk Hogan personally told Kurt Angle they should work a program together in TNA with Angle putting the “red, white, and blue” back on and turning face. The Olympic gold medalist concurred and said he could make it happen.
During Hogan’s in-studio appearance alongside Brian Knobs, Bubba called Angle to discuss wrestling and women with the WWE Hall of Famer. After Hogan and Angle discussed the idea of Hogan coming to the organization to “turn this thing around,” Bubba called TNA president Dixie Carter, but received her voice-mail. Bubba then played fantasy booker by laying out an elaborate plan the two could work in TNA, with both approving.
Bubba later trashed TNA creative writer Vince Russo, naming him the “cancer of the wrestling industry.” Hogan added he hasn’t seen Russo since the day “Russo was fired from WCW.” As many of you know, Hogan and Russo aren’t exactly on the greatest terms considering Hogan felt Russo double-crossed him and went into business for himself during an infamous incident at the Bash at the Beach pay-per-view in 2000.
Hogan’s radio show appearance was not without WWE discussion as he re-told the story of getting ready to face John Cena at WrestleMania earlier this year, but being forced to cancel as a result of back surgery.
“Nasty Boy” Knobs was on the show promoting his all-new wrestling academy in Florida. The former WWF tag team champion said he’s charging those interested $100 to work out and is holding try-outs every Saturday this month.
