When I reached out to several people in TNA, they were pretty gobsmacked by Hogan's claim, since he has not been advertised to be on the tour...ever.
According to one source in TNA, the only mention of Hogan that could even be misconstrued as being in relation to the tour is old footage of Hogan stating how much he enjoys coming to Europe, which was footage filmed last year.
One TNA talent forwarded the only email they had received regarding the tour thus far, which reads:
The only advertised talent list released for the tour features Kurt Angle, Bully Ray, Magnus, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe, Chris Sabin, Austin Aries, Manik, James Storm, Gunner, Gail Kim, Rockstar Spud, Christopher Daniels, Kazarian, Brooke, ODB, Knux, Robbie E and Jessie Godderz.
One TNA performer joked, "Hulk has some imagination when he has nothing to do. If he and his friends were that creative when he was here, he'd still be there."
