More on the Hogan-Bischoff Twitter Saga

Aug 11, 2010 - by Steve Gerweck

– Eric Bischoff plugged the new Hulk Hogan Twitter page on his account,
directing fans to follow the Hulkster using the @realHulk_Hogan account
earlier today. Hogan’s close friend and DJ Bubba “The Love Sponge” followed
a bit later on. Then Hogan goes on Twitter and announces that he and
Bischoff are walking out of TNA after getting over 4,000 followers in less
than 24 hours. “Thank you Dixie and Bob Carter for the wonderful and
positive experiences in TNA. Nothing but the best to you guys,” Hogan wrote.
He added a few more lines saying that TNA is having new leadership coming in
and it was time to move on. Around fifteen minutes after, Eric Bischoff
announces on his Facebook and Twitter that he posted the wrong information
and the Hulk Hogan Twitter account is a fake one and all the information of
them leaving are bogus. “Sorry for the confusion,” wrote Bischoff, obviously
aware of the mass confusion he created. Bischoff noted that Hogan is in the
process of getting his own Twitter feed but it’s not up yet and will post
the info when it’s available. The messages of Hogan saying they are leaving
have since disappeared from the @realHulk_Hogan feed. “@EBischoff GOT WORKED
BROTHERS! He publishes information before even verifying its accuracy. How
can someone like this even try to run TNA?” said the person running the
alleged Hogan Twitter.

– The man behind the @realHulk_Hogan Twitter account revealed himself as a
current TNA employee who isn’t happy with the current situation so he
decided to have some fun at the expense of the former WCW President. “That
piece of sh!t @BTLSRadio GOT WORKED TOO,” he said referring to Bubba “The
Love Sponge.” The anonymous person posted that TNA doesn’t listen to its
employees backstage and he hates Bischoff, although he doesn’t mind Hogan.
“He’s just taking money,” he said of Hogan. “Hogan and Bischoff always play
up how we’re a happy family backstage. But that’s far from it. We get paid
sh!t,” he continued. “This one was for the INTERNET WRESTLING COMMUNITY!
Beat us if you can, survive if we let you!”

– TNA President Dixie Carter responded to the fake Twitter account ordeal by
saying that the rumors of Hogan leaving TNA is bogus. “To what extreme
people will go,” she said. The individual behind the Hogan account then
replied saying that while what he posted was bogus, Bischoff himself is
bogus as well. “I work for you Dixie and respect you so much, but you’ve
fallen off the wagon. You need to wake up and realize who your true TNA
troops are.” The person continued, “I’ve bled for TNA, I’ve sacrificed for
TNA, and I’ve put my family on the line for TNA…for what? To be pushed
aside? It’s BS.” He later apologized to everyone following him saying he
won’t reveal who he really is because at the end of the day he needs to put
food on the table for his family and getting fired won’t help.
