With Turner almost sememingly returning to wrestling it has emergerged he will be buying AWA if he does return.

The American Wrestling Association (AWA) has posted quite a shocking statement on their website. Dale Gagne, head of AWA operations, claims to be able to put together a match between Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin.

 

The statement on their site says, "After months of negotiations, the WWE has become unable to come to terms with not one but two of Professional Wrestling's biggest Superstars. Stone Cold" Steve Austin and the Immortal Hulk Hogan have both left the WWE, making them available for new national and international opportunities including wrestling on an AWA WRESTLING SUPERSTARS - LIVE! event. If you're a fair, festival, casino or promoter, the match of the century, Hogan vs. Austin, is an e-mail or phone call away."

 

While this seems unlikely, both Austin and Hogan are currently free agents and are able to participate in such an event, should the money to secure the two biggest draws in the history of profsesional wrestling become available. We will have more on this story as it becomes available.

 

This is all on from http://www.nodq.com and i dont know if this is true but just wanted your opinions on these rumours

From the Observer:

 

In the best comedy award for the day, AWA Superstars put up this on its site: "After months of negotiations, the WWE has become unable to come to terms with not one but two of Professional Wrestling's biggest Superstars. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and the Immortal hulk Hogan have both left the WWE, making them available for new national and international opportunities including wrestling on an AWA Wrestling Superstars - Live! event. If you're a fair, festival, casino or promoter, the match of the century, Hogan vs. Austin, is an e-mail or phone call away.

 

Anyway, a friend of mine asked wrote them and asked if he could book Hogan vs. Austin for his indie group. The response back was, "Thank you for the message. We've been swamped with inquires regarding Hogan and Austin. I'm not sure of everyones expectations financially, but in order to book and secure them, you would need to run a major facility and raw of house of $250,000 in order for the show to be profitable (sponsorship and ticket sales). Please let me know if you're still interested in pursuing this opportunity." Dale Gagne, AWA Wrestling Entertainment Inc.

To book these guys for a one off 1 on 1 match, I'm betting they would each want about $500,000 each so unless Ted Turner has seen this website and is considering it, I doubt it will happen any time soon. That, and the fact that Hulk has a crippled leg right now and Austin cant wrestle anymore, I wouldnt hold my breath.

This guy must just be under the impression that all press is good press...even when its bad press, lol.

Thats the biggest bunch of crap ive ever seen in my life.....

 

The hogan injured thing I thought was just a story TNA created due to the fact they couldnt sign Hogan....hmm

 

As for Austin I really really dont expect we've seen the last of him in WWE. Id expect to see him at WM21 as I would expect to see the Rock again then

It all makes perfect sense, Ted Turner will spend millions buying a shitty little independant promotion which hasn't had name value since the early 80s, put them on national prime time TV headlined by Hogan vs Austin!

 

Of course this can't happen for another year because of legal issues with the WWE but lets not let logic get in the way of a retarded rumour!
