— TNA Wrestling’s signing of Hulk Hogan has instantly put World Wrestling Entertainment in a troubling dilemma as their three-disc DVD set on the wrestling legend, Hulk Hogan‘s Unreleased Collector’s Series, is due for release mere weeks from now.
Whenever a former WWE star signs on with TNA, they instantly become persona non grata in the company. For instance, the WWE website removed both Mick Foley and Victoria’s profiles from its Alumni section shortly after their respective arrivals in TNA. Also, fan signs bearing the names of former WWE wrestlers in TNA are quickly confiscated by security and company personnel at live events. However, WWE has never dealt with having to release a major product on a performer employed to the competition before.
The DVD set, which features some of the rarest matches and moments from the WWE Hall of Famer’s career for the first time, is set for release three weeks from now. It is highly unlikely that the DVD set will be pulled considering production of the title has more than likely been finalized by now. Furthermore, WWE DVD titles often begin circulating weeks before their official street date, so the title should be due for shipment any day now â€” if it hasn’t already. As a result, WWE pretty much has no choice but to release the DVD set and promote it properly, otherwise they’ll cost themselves millions of dollars.
The cover of the DVD was recently released, and you can see it at the following link.
