Hulk Hogan held a meeting with TNA talent on Tuesday before the Impact Wrestling tapings. According to Jason Powell of, Hogan stressed that the wrestlers “need to step up their games when it comes to storytelling in the ring”, something that has been mentioned in prior meetings.

Dixie Carter was also part of the meeting asking if anyone had any questions. We are told the wrestlers were not very receptive to the meeting and declined to ask anything when Carter gave them the opportunity to do so. It should be noted that TNA creative writers Vince Russo and Matt Conway did not attend the meeting. Various talent in TNA took that as a sign that Russo may not be on the same page as Hogan, but a lot of that was looked at as pure speculation as it hasn’t been revealed why Russo didn’t attend the meeting.
