A lot of rumors have circulated that Hulk Hogan could return to the WWE when his TNA contract expires. The question was though, no one was sure about when the contract actually expired.
ProWrestling.net is reporting that Hulk Hogan’s contract with TNA expires on October 1, which is exactly two weeks away. The website is also reporting that Hogan’s camp has declined comment on the contract status with TNA.
When Hogan’s contract was set to expire last year, TNA picked up the option on his contract.
TNA has been cutting costs recently getting rid of talent like Mickie James, Devon and Mr. Anderson. Hogan would come at a hefty price for TNA, so it will be interesting to see if the company and Hogan can agree to a new deal.
A reunion between Hogan and the WWE has been circulating due to Hogan having a prominent role in the WWE 2K14 video game, which comes out on October 29. During the Night of Champions on Sunday, the WWE ran a poll on who was the greatest WWE champion of all time was and Hogan was the winner.
Do you want Hulk Hogan to stay with TNA or do you want to see the biggest star in the history of wrestling return to the WWE?
We will keep updated on the status of Hulk Hogan and where he will end up.
