TNA LOCKDOWN: Segment with Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan
Apr 15, 2012 - by Adam Martin
Ric Flair’s music hits and he makes his way out to the arena. Big reaction. Flair gets on the mic and asks the Nashville crowd who just walked into this ring. He insults some people at ringside and formally introduces himself. Flair calls himself a “special kind of cat” and says he is pissed off. He said Hulk Hogan just won’t leave him alone and tonight he ended Eric Bischoff’s career. The crowd cheers and he doesn’t think it is funny at all. Hulk Hogan’s music hits and he makes his way into the arena. Big reaction for Hogan. “Mr. Flair, as the General Manager of Impact Wrestling, I have to admit one huge fact: you single handedly are the greatest wrestler alive. Now, do you mind if I enter your ring my brother?” Flair tells Val to “get her ass up here” and open the ropes for Hogan. Hogan says as the GM of Impact Wrestling, Flair has the right to express any problems or concerns. Flair says he has had a problem with Hogan for 30 years and he doesn’t like the way he is running this company. He said Eric Bischoff shouldn’t have been in the ring tonight and Hogan put him in a position to fail. Flair said he should have been in the ring instead. He threatens to kick Hogan’s ass. Hogan reminds Flair where he is tonight: Lockdown. He adds that because of Lockdown, Eric Bischoff will never be part of TNA ever again, he can’t use the Bischoff name and everyone in the building knows that if they hook up right now we will tear the roof off this building. Hogan tells Flair if he has a problem with how he is running things then he “better do something about it right now…brother!” Flair says he is pissed, removes his jacket and Hogan drops Flair with a big right. Hogan leaves the ring and starts heading to the back when Flair freaks out. Flair tells Hogan to get back here on the mic and threatens to beat up Mike Tenay at ringside.
* Matt Morgan vs. Crimson is up next.
