Wow!!!!!!! What an amazing night of wrestling last night!!! Both wrestling shows “TNA Impact” and “WWE RAW” were really amazing. Making history, big time. Last night’s TNA Impact, their first Monday night show, marks the debut of Hulk Hogan who just signed with TNA a while back. TNA did a three hour special to compete with RAW. Yes they were competing and battling with them big time for the ratings. Hulk Hogan was not the only former WWE superstar making his debut in TNA, there were many others. Superstars such as Ric Flair, Jeff Hardy, Val Venis, The Nasty Boys tag team, Scott Hall, X-Pac (Sean Waltman), Shannon Moore, and a few more to name. I never really used to like TNA that much, but last night was actually a really good show. The wrestling and the storylines were entertaining.
As for the Hulk Hogan debut, everybody probably expected Hulk to come out wearing his usual red and yellow ring attire with his “Great American” theme song, but he didn’t. He came out wearing all black, wearing sunglasses and fake black beard makeup. Meaning that he went back to his old Hollywood Hulk Hogan gimmick. The reason I think Hogan didn’t wear the red and yellow ring attire is because it’s, the WWE’s trademark and WWE owns the rights. TnA could get into legal trouble if they used the “American” red and yellow gimmick, that’s my guess. I could be wrong though, maybe TnA will actually use the red and yellow gimmick in the future if WWE lets them.
There was an nWo reunion last night on TNA. Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, Scott Hall, and Eric Bischoff were all in the ring, talking about reforming the nWo. However, the nWo name wasn’t mentioned once (another copyright/trademark thing?). It was an amazing segment seeing all those guys in the ring after all these years. They put on great mic speeches.
I was also watching WWE RAW, both at the same time. Switching back and forth in between commercials. I recorded both shows on my DVR. Bret Hart being RAW guest host was amazing as well. Bret still have the great mic skills and he was amazing last night. Look like Bret will be feuding with McMahon for the Montreal Screwjob angle years back. Bret vs. Vince McMahon for Wrestlemania? Possibly.
I plan to watch both TNA and RAW again this week. I’ll keep an eye on the ratings report to see which show did the best ratings. I’ll post it when the ratings report is announced.
