Hulk Hogan: I quit TNA and now it's time to move forward; I need a job

Ronald Martinez

Hulk Hogan is claiming his quitting TNA was a "shoot" and he needs a job now. Hmmm...

It's bee over a month now since Hulk Hogan's contract with TNA ran out. Because of the creative control clause that was written into his contract, he was able to leave on his own terms, which included having promotion President Dixie Carter humiliate herself by literally getting down on her knees and grabbing at his leg begging him not to leave.

He left anyway.

Now, he's claiming he quit TNA in a "shoot" and it's time to move on. Actually, he's looking for a job now. From a recent interview with Bill Apter at 1Wrestling:

"Well, here's the deal: I need a job. I quit TNA, that was a shoot. Everybody thought it was a work, that was a shoot. It was four years, I mean, they were really great, they were awesome. Dixie Carter's a sweetheart, everybody there, I loved Eric Bischoff, Jason, they're my boys. Everybody there was great but it's time to move forward. I'm looking for a job."

This is the pro wrestling business, so it's entirely possible these remarks aren't anything more than Hogan doing some working of the media en route to his return back to Impact. Then again, it's also entirely possible he's being serious, seeing as talks with WWE are apparently still open and a return back home to the company that first made him a major player in the industry isn't out of the question.

Recent career failings aside, it sure would be something to have "The Hulkster" back for WrestleMania XXX, no?
