Hulkamania is, unbelievably enough, still running wild. And it will continue to do so with TNA, as PWTorch is reporting the "Hulkster" has signed a new deal with the company:

A source connected to Impact Wrestling tells PWTorch that Hulk Hogan has renewed with the company. No word yet on the length of the deal, but we're told Impact Wrestling wanted to get the deal done before Bound for Glory.

Hogan is currently in the midst of a big program with Sting in which he's teasing his retirement from professional wrestling that will put the big kibosh on his match with the "Stinger" at Bound for Glory on Oct. 16. Spoilers have been posted but let's be real -- it's Hogan and we all knew there was no way in hell he was actually retiring and not having his main event match at TNA's biggest pay-per-view of the year, especially when they've been building to it for something like two years and running.

Now, in a press release from TNA announcing a partnership with Screenvision to show Bound for Glory in over 100 theaters nationwide, it was revealed that the bout between Hogan and Sting will have the added stipulation of being a no disqualification match.

This comes as no surprise and was, in fact, expected all along. After all, Hogan is a broken down man who just turned 58-years-old. One more big boot and leg drop and he may never walk again. Despite that, TNA is going along with everything as planned but at least we're going to see plenty of run-ins and smoke and mirrors to provide as much protection as possible.
