I don't know how many of you out there watch "Hogan Knows Best," but in the last episode Hogan signed a new 20 year contract with the WWE.  The man is 54.

20 more years!

Part of me wants to be excited about this, but moreso I find it a bit sad.  This would have been alot cooler, say, ten years ago.  I could see Hogan going into his 60's...but 74?!?  Let's hope this deal includes alot of time behind the microphone.

Any thoughts?

20 more years is mind-boggling.  As is the fact that he is only 54 years old.  The Return of Thunder Lips!

 Maybe he can get Mr. T to assist him again. It'd be like the 80s all over again.

He's not under contract with WWE the last time I checked.

I guess his reality show is going quite well?

Not too interested in his daughter, Brooke, career.  I don't think she that good of a singer.  His son has a desire for a NASCAR career.  Boy, it's funny how GOW's kids want these crash and burn careers...  finance through The God Of Wrestling himself.

I remember when he got his kids a job at a resturaunt...  very funny stuff.  Serious I think they should've kept the job because it grounds them a little on how blessed they truly are to have a father who's well secured.

The show was filmed around the time of SummerSlam...just afterwards.  Vince has a short talk with Hulk after the event and then Hogan flies to WWE Headquarters shortly after to iron out the details.  Vince wants Hulk to be the "Babe Ruth of wrestling."

Sucks that Hogan quotes money and his family's ability to spend it as a motivator for taking the deal.  It's obvious, though, when you watch the show the guy would wrestle for another 50 years if he could.

Well, to be fair the guy's moveset is not terribly strenuous...boot to the face, leg drop and body slam? I can't think of anything else!

Hulk deserves it though. He's certainly done more than anybody to popularize pro wrestling.

Hogan's reality show is more of a work than Monday Night Raw. I doubt very much Vince would sign him for a twenty year deal this late in his career. The last time Vince gave out one of those long-term contracts it ended with disaster for Bret Hart.
