Report: Hulk Hogan's next match currently being planned by TNA

via <a href=""></a>

Oh TNA, how you continue to astound me.

You would think that conventional wisdom would prevail at some point and those in power would suddenly come to their senses and realizes why it's a bad idea to have a 58-year-old man with a broken back attempt to wrestle a match.


Reports from that one wrestling website that will attack your computer like a spider monkey state that plans are being laid for Hulk Hogan's return to the ring -- as a wrestler -- in a tag team match with Garrett Bischoff against Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair.

Seriously. I believe the collective age in that hypothetical match would be 438, give or take a decade.

Honestly, it's preposterous for TNA to even consider such a thing. The report states that it wouldn't happen until sometime next year, possibly at the Lockdown pay-per-view in April, which makes sense because Flair is still recovering from multiple injuries that required surgery. He blew them off to continue working, of course.

They planted the seeds for this during Hogan's match against Sting when Garrett went against his father and got laid out with a chair, which the announcers sold to the sky, before Hogan made his big babyface turn by attacking Immortal to save Sting. This all happened at Bound for Glory this past Oct. 16, which we were told would be Hogan's last match.

It should have been and still should be. Plans change, of course, and although the "Hulkster" thinks he's superhuman after bumping despite eight back surgeries, any match that requires his services has disaster written all over it.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
