Jason Powell of ProWrestling.net is reporting that there was a big argument between Hulk Hogan and Vince Russo at this past Sunday’s “Hardcore Justice” regarding the finish of Kurt Angle vs. Sting. Hogan was heard telling people that Russo doesn’t know what he’s doing since he’s never been a wrestler. They were still going over the finish as the PPV was going on.
Hogan and Russo reportedly made up at the next day’s TV tapings but there was still some noticeable tension between the two of them for the three days of tapings.
The wrestlers are also having problems with Eric Bischoff. Bischoff comes off as arrogant and critiques the in-ring work of the wrestlers. The criticisms are ignored due to the wrestlers not respecting Bischoff due to his attitude. The X-Division Gauntlet Match was taped on Tuesday and redone on Wednesday due to Bischoff not being happy with it. All this tension has made the low locker room morale even lower.
