Hulk Hogan Wishes To Win The TNA Wrestling Championship

It’s a good thing for TNA Wrestling fans that Hulk Hogan was more naughty than nice in 2012. Because at the top of Hogan’s Christmas wish list is a run as TNA Impact Wrestling world heavyweight champion which already has a ton of wrestling fans in panic mode.

Personally I think more is being made of this revelation than needs to be but it is certainly worth blogging about. The Guardian in the United Kingdom had a piece entitled Celebrity Christmas wish lists. Hogan was featured as part of the promotion for TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp and one of his wishes caused a bit of stir over the weekend with wrestling fans throughout social media.

Knee surgery I’ve had eight back surgeries, I’ve had knee replacements, I’ve had both hip replacements. I only need one more surgery – to fix my right knee – then I’m going to go for the TNA world title. I want to be 59 years old and be the champion.

Yikes! As I said earlier, the social media world went nuts over the weekend with fans already protesting the idea of Hogan booking himself on top with the TNA championship. Well I am here to tell all of you panicked fans that it is okay to get off the ledge because I think the chances of this happening are incredibly slim.

Has anyone seen Hogan walk lately? It is sad to say but the man can barely move. I am in pain watching him wince as he walks slowly towards the ring in the Impact Zone. A recent report indicated that Hogan turned down a big money deal from Mexico to wrestle because he just can’t do it. Hogan has flirted with the idea of wrestling a few times since his final match in TNA but when push comes to shove, he just can’t do it. In other words, he isn’t taking the title.

Quite frankly I don’t even think it’d be a bad idea if Hogan could do a match or two. Like Hogan or not, he gets more publicity than anyone in TNA Wrestling. He is still one of the most recognizable crossover celebrities to come out of professional wrestling, probably the biggest. The publicity TNA could grab even for just two matches (one to win, one to lose) is worth the move. Hogan haters don’t want to read that but unfortunately for you it is the truth.

Again the chances of Hogan even wrestling again are very slim. If Hogan could go even a little, you’d see him doing everything he could to milk himself a pay check. Watching him wrestle against Sting (if you want to call it that) in his last match was sad. Hogan’s days as a wrestler are over. He’s the booker. He doesn’t have to wish to win the title if he wants it, he can just book himself as champion. It’s not happening.

Let’s be honest. What do you want Hogan to say? This was a fun, Christmas wish blog and nothing more. Be happy he even put over the TNA championship and didn’t wish for a WrestleMania match with Steve Austin.

Just in case you were wondering Hogan also wished for a full head of hair, a 747 jet, and his youth back.

Merry Christmas from the Hulkster!
