Hulk Hogan Fan Asked To Remove Gear At Bound For Glory, WWE Employee At PPV, Attendance
- The man in the Hulk Hogan outfit at Bound For Glory is named George Antoun. George is from Australia and was the subject of a mini-documentary on Hogan and his fandom. A TNA employee approached George during the pay-per-view and said the producers didn’t like that he was all over the TV. They told him to please take the Hogan gear off and that they would give him a Hernandez t-shirt to wear instead. George was already upset they confiscated his Hogan sign so he told them no. TNA staffers pleaded with him to change the gear but he refused and eventually they gave up on asking him.
– A WWE employee who attended TNA’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view in San Diego said they had a great time and noted attendance was actually good because with Rey Mysterio out of action, WWE was afraid to run TV tapings in San Diego for fear of a small crowd, so the city was only getting live events. The pay-per-view drew just 2,622 fans.
It was noted by another fan in attendance that there were more WWE t-shirts in the crowd than TNA t-shirts but the merchandise stand was packed and they were selling a lot of Aces & 8s vests.
