The Honky Tonk Man Blogs On Hulk Hogan

c posted the following on his official site:

"You guys keep asking what's the issue with Hogan. Here's the deal. Hogan is in a back brace and without it he is on a walker as an old crippled dogshit of a man who could only be found with his feet in Lard Ass Bubba's ass. You ask why HTM doesn't like Hogan?

Jeff Jarrett approached HTM for a TNA merchandise deal in 2010 and "sent" a contract. Contract never came. HTM signs with WWE & Mattel. The same time, Hogan and Bischoff join TNA and Bischoff publicly insults HTM. HTM is called up for the "Hogan & Friends Tour", went to the show and had a great event with the boys and the fans. HTM and Jimmy Hart spend hours setting up the show, spots etc. HTM and his web team promote "Hulk and Friends" everywhere which Hogan's agent praised and admitted none of the other stars did! Bubba the lard sponge calls out HTM on his radio show so HTM posted a video owning Bubba in retaliation. Hogan goes off without seeing the facts and HTM is off the tour.

HTM went to Hogan's room on the Hogan & Friends tour and spent hours talking to Hogan. Hogan was nice to HTM's face. That's the deal with Hogan. That's always the deal with Hulk Hogan. Ask Vince McMahon or Randy Savage.Hogan is a walking dead because he went with that travelling door to door meat salesman Bischoff instead of hanging with the guys who stood beside him and once again turned on WWE. McMahon's done with Hogan and WWE have no interest in his dead ass. They put over Hogan, built him up as Babe Ruth and he spat in their face. Hogan was due to wrestle John Cena at a recent past WrestleMania but couldn't commit due to his health issues then announces at Vince's backyard MSG that he's signed with TNA. Now after taking TNA nowhere Hogan's had to take a pay cut with TNA and mark my words within 6 months he'll be gone.

What is WWE going to do with a free agent crippled Hulk Hogan? Nothing. They own the entire back catalogue, anything of worth they have. Hogan has his chance to be the Babe Ruth of WWE and spat in their face. He demands top money from Vince and has nothing in return to offer.Hogan's "Hulk & Friends" Tour is dead in the water. Events were cancelled due to poor ticket sales and performance and Hogan's $100k fee demand while paying his fellow boys $3k.

THQ recently signed Hogan to WWE Allstars as his contract allows for outside licensing which is a slap in the face to TNA. Would McMahon let any WWE star sign a TNA merchandise deal? How is that taking "the company to the next level" Brother!.

The guys in the back have no respect for Hogan and Nash is laughing his ass off now that Hogan is broke and Nash is back as a player.

A major TNA backstage player has bolted TNA for WWE, someone close to Hogan which has left Hogan reeling. More on that to come..

Hulkamania killed itself.

Update On Christopher Daniels

ROH TV champion Christopher Daniels was legitimately out on his feet after hitting his head on a guard rail during his title defense against Eddie Edwards.

Daniels tweeted the following:

Thanks to everyone checking on me. Got a clean bill of health, except for the big cut on my forehead. No concussion, though, luckily.

I did, however, land on the tippytop o' my noggin, much to my chagrin, & my neck will be sore after my medication wears off

Ring Of Honor's 9th Anniversary Show Results

Colt Cabana vs Davey Richards

Great choice to start by kicking the show off with the hometown star. They follow the Code of Honor to start and we're off, with Cabana trying to confuse Richards with some of his British wrestling techniques but Richards was able to escape and Cabana barely dodges a hard kick. Cabana turns a Richards drop down into a modified O'Connor Roll for 2 and then gets a combination Indian Deathlock/Boston Crab, but Richards sits up out of the hold and turns it into a Thesz Press for 2. Cabana with a schoolboy for 2 and Richards tries to reverse to an anklelock, but Cabana rolls free and goes to the floor where Richards hits a baseball slide and the dive through the ropes, though he landed at ringside instead of the fifth row like usual. Richards takes Cabana dow
