During an appearance on the B.J. Shea Morning Experience radio show on KISW-FM in Seattle on Thursday, WWE star CM Punk talked about TNA Impact going live and head-to-head with WWE Monday Night Raw on January 4. Punk didn’t hold anything back when addressing the show and Hulk Hogan’s involvement.
“My take is first of all that we have Tribute to the Troops on Saturday. That’s probably going to be a much better show than whatever that TNA is going to put on. I have a lot of friends that work there and I do watch the show, but I seem to watch it on perpetual fast forward. I hope, I really hope that something comes of it. I have zero faith in Hulk Hogan as a man who is what 60 years-old and tries to dress like he’s 18 and lives on the Jersey Shore. For a guy I’ve never met, I’ve formulated enough opinions about him just from being around him and like his business acumen and stuff like that, I really trust that he’s not in this for TNA and he’s not in this for the business. He’s in this for himself. Hulk Hogan, I hope you prove me wrong. I hope there’s competition because when there’s competition we step up, everybody makes more money, and I think it makes the business healthier and that’s what I’m looking forward to, but I don’t have much hope.”
