Recently, TNANews.com once again is under the criticism from none other than Hulk Hogan. It was reported on Wrestling News World that Hulk Hogan retweeted a tweet from the man who is running things here at TNANews.com, Alex Barie:

Then, Hogan proceeded to call fellow writers Elto Alexandrov and Kyle Schimanski “clowns” for the article they did. Saying they should be fired and they were undermining TNA.
This article is not intended to disrespect Hulk Hogan or TNA in any way, shape, or form. However, I do think Hogan has gotten the wrong idea about this site. In the article Elto and Kyle wrote, they gave their honest opinions. There were some things they gave you credit for and there were things they scratched their head at. I felt they were respectful in what they had to say. I feel that the article was professional and in no way disparaged TNA or Mr. Hogan.
It seems to me that either Hulk Hogan doesn’t like criticism or he is just doing this to bring attention to himself. I understand that I just made an accusation but that’s how I honestly feel. I know Hogan probably thinks we are all “marks” and that we don’t know what were talking about but the bottomline is at the end of the day, we all love the TNA product. We want to see it grow and rise up to the level of where WWE is at. I think we contribute to the growth of this company by writing our articles and tweeting them to Dixie, Hulk, and etc. Giving them the chance to see what we think of the product. As a matter of fact, I listened to an interview that Dixie Carter did with Pro Wrestling Torch where several fans said to her that they dislike the Aces & Eights storyline and she replied, “well, what do you like?” She expressed that she is open to hearing from us. On the other hand, it seems that Hulk Hogan doesn’t feel the same way. As evidenced by the situation that has come to fruition.
So with that being said, we are not trying to discredit TNA. We are just expressing our opinions here Hulk. I might be one of your biggest critics but I do respect what you have done for this business. You will always be one of the biggest legends in pro wrestling. In this situation, I think you are off-base and that you just don’t get it.
