TNA star Hulk Hogan continues to deny signing a new agreement with WWE or 2K Sports to be a part of the new WWE 2K14 video game.
Hogan’s longtime agent, Peter Young, recently told ProWrestling.net that neither he nor Hogan signed off on Hogan’s appearance in the new game. Instead, Young is claiming that he struck a deal with THQ in 2008 for Hogan to appear in a WWE video game. Young claims 2K Sports had a renewal option on Hogan’s old contract, which they acquired when THQ filed for bankruptcy.
WWE 2K14 creative director Cory Ledesma noted in a recent interview that they had to overcome the “hurdle” of getting Hogan involved in the project, or the “30 Years Of WrestleMania” mode would have been impossible.
Eric Bischoff also made headlines recently ripped the “idiots, morons and parasites” running wrestling news websites that reported Hogan got heat with the TNA locker room for signing a new deal with 2K to appear in the game.
