Hulk Hogan makes rounds in media, disses Obama, Tim Tebow, Bobby Roode

Hulk Hogan has been making the media rounds this week to plug TNA’s “Super Bowl of Wrestling” (yuck), Bound For Glory, airing this Sunday on pay-per-view and bound for, at most, 10,000 buys. Anyway, in the video above, Hogan appears on ESPN SportsNation (does every god damn show need two words that run together?), calling out Tim Tebow, or should I say, “Tim TiVo” for completely nondescript reasons, like having small legs. I’m pretty sure Hulk Hogan, one of the biggest stars of the 1980s, has never heard of Tim Tebow, one of the bigger names in football today, and that says more about Hogan’s obliviousness and nothing about his faded star power.

Speaking of people and things Hogan knows shit about, according to Prowrestling.net, he claimed on the the Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton radio show on WFAN in New York that he used to wrestle Pride fighters when he wrestled a lot in Japan. That was the late late 1970s and early 1980s, when Pride was only a twinkle in Kakutougi’s eye. But, as always with the Hulkster, never let 93,173 people get in the way of a good story.

Hogan also appeared on Fox News Channel, saying he no longer supports President Barack Obama, who Hogan claims has done nothing in the past three years to make America better (OK, not every tale is a tall one). He says he himself would make a better president because:

I’ve been around, people know me, they know everything about me, they know I’m for real, they know I know nothing about politics.

Nope, he only knows about the bullshit of the politics, M I RITE DUSTY!

And according to Prowrestling.net, Hogan appeared on the Sirius XM show Busted Open and proclaimed that Bobby Roode, who headlines this Sunday’s Bound For Glory, TNA’s biggest PPV of the year, in a world title match against Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, sucks.

Nah, he’s not ready. He’s not the next guy. Ya’ know, they might think he is. Dixie Carter might think he is. The whole world might think he is. He’s not the next guy.

Once again, not every tale Hogan tells is tall. -Eric

PWO – Season 5 – Episode 2

I posted hot twins for Episode 2 last year. I figured why not again.

Joe Dombrowski and Aaron Maguire preview the show. “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine takes on “M Dogg 20” Matt Cross in the main event for the #1 Contendership for the PWO Title. Bobby Shields vs. “Omega” Aaron Draven and Krimson vs. Brian Bender is also on the card. The later match was first. Dombrowski informed us that Hobo Joe will be out indefinitely from the injuries last week. Krimson assaulted Bender before he could get to the ring. Krimson missed a charge on the outside. It allowed Bender to suplex Krimson on the floor. Bender tossed him into the ring. Krimson charged into the corner but got back elbowed. Krimson crotched Bender on the middle rope. Krimson fore armed Bender in the chest. Bender fought back with chops and punches. Krimson gave Bender the big boot then clothes lined him. Bender pulled Krimson off the top rope. Krimson head butted then low clothes lined Bender in the back of the head. A Witch’s Wheel got Krimson the victory. Kirst & Jason Gory came out to attack Bender. The baby face locker room empties to save Bender.

Analysis: Bender went a little too over board with his actions to me. Too deep of a knee bend when punching, attacking a little too woozy, that kind of a thing. Having Krimson get a win back after Wrestlelution over one of the bigger men in PWO was a good idea though. Krimson didn’t quite squash him but it was close. I like the locker room emptying earlier this week. So many times, another beat down happens and it just is bad logic to me. Once you know someone is going to carry out their threat, like the Dead Wrestling Society, you need to keep an eye on them and nip further assaults from happening. Score: +1.

The Sons of Michigan, Benjamin Boone & “Amazing” N8 Mattson, are going to take on Ben Fruith & Corey Winters before they take on Aeroform (Louis Lynden & Flip Kendrick) .  Mattson bragged about them dominating the tag team division. He went on to say that even though Aeroform are from Michigan, they are the only ones to truly represent Michigan. Mattson said they out smarted Aeroform at Wrestlelution and they’ll do it again in the next match. Boone said something was on his mind and it was Ben Fruith because he won’t stay out of their business. Mattson said it was going to be too easy but then reminded us that Fruith stole the Wrestlerama Trophy from him and that he owes him one. “Hail To The Victors” is officially a catch phrase for them.

Analysis: Good promo for both of them. I wish Boone got a little more to sink his teeth into for his end but I’m not sure that was his fault. Score: +1.

Corey Winters & Ben Fruith are sitting back to back with the Wrestlerama Trophy behind them. They both say that each other has been friendless for too long and high five. Fruith said that he liked winning the trophy more at Wrestlelution than he did that first time over and he acted like he didn’t know. Winters “tagged in” and answered N8 Mattson. Winters said they are wrestling for the PWO Tag Team Titles. Fruith said that they’re going to bring an end to the Sons of Michigan’s reign. Analysis: On the one hand, that promo was completely gay. On the other hand, Winters & Fruith have characters for the first time ever. So it’s a wash. Score: 0.

Bobby Shields took on “Omega” Aaron Draven. Dombrowski noted that Shields wrestled in a grueling two out of three falls match last week. A shoulder block by Shields led to him posing. Shields punch Draven in the corner. Draven kicked Shields to the outside. Shields dropped Draven over the middle rope. A Neck breaker by Shields led to more posing. A neck cravat allowed Shields to knee Draven in the face. Draven rolled up Shields but only got two. Shields had a nice looking suplex. Shields missed on a third knee dropped. Draven drop toe holded Shields into the middle rope. Shields clothes lined Draven. Another cravat/knee combo led to a running high knee by Shields. Draven turned it out with three kicks. Draven hit a pair of leaping clothes lines then an enziguri which draped Shields on the middle rope. Draven sentoned him but only got a two count. Draven spine bustered Shields. A German Suplex by Shields only got a two count. A roll thru slam from the fire man’s carry position put Shields in the corner to take the 450 splash from Draven for the victory.
