Hulk Hogan Reveals Favourite Part Of His TNA Run

Hulk Hogan has some happy memories from TNA

Hulk Hogan's run in TNA Wrestling from 2009 until 2013 has ultimately become infamous and has been credited with a downturn in business for the promotion that led to TNA almost going bust on multiple occasions in 2015 and 2016 as this particular era of TNA drove away their loyal viewers. 

Hogan's run did see him be utilised as an on-screen authority figure, while he also feuded with Aces & Eights and had sporadic matches in the promotion. The wrestling legend's last-ever match even took place in TNA when he teamed with Sting and James Storm to defeat Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, and Bully Ray at a January 2012 house show in Manchester, England. 

Hulk Hogan does have some fond memories from his time in TNA, telling Chris Van Vliet that he particularly enjoyed being paid while he was out of action. 

"From the moment I walked in there I was getting cut on. Surgery after surgery after surgery after surgery, and all I can say is I was never in that situation but I didn't expect her to pay me when I was out. I'd have a hip replacement and I'd be out for two and a half months and she'd still pay me every week. It was just amazing how consistent she was and how kind she was," Hogan said about Dixie Carter.

"A lot of people knocked her because she didn't know the wrestling business or it was a hobby to her, stuff like that. But, all I know is how she treated people and how she treated me was the thing that really stands out was the type of person Dixie Carter was."

Hulk Hogan returned to WWE following his departure from TNA. He sporadically pops up on WWE TV and recently claimed that his son Nick Hogan was discussed for a match against Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 39. WWE quickly quashed Hogan's story, though
