One-on-one with Hulk Hogan – comparing the pro wrestling and MMA business models

We very rarely cover pro wrestling here; usually only when it ties in some way with MMA. And although this interview with Hulk Hogan doesn’t directly deal with MMA, it became apparent upon watching, that the world of pro wrestling in its current incarnation has some very interesting parallels with the world of MMA.

WWE is pro wrestling’s biggest organization, much like the UFC is to MMA – then there is TNA, which could be compared to Strikeforce. In this interview with Hulk Hogan, who has recently began working with TNA, the legend talks about giving wrestlers as well as fans a viable alternative to the WWE.

He also talks about how much Vince McMahon has done for wrestling, but that he may not have all the answers when it comes to the future of wrestling. These are the exact types of arguments critics of Dana White often use. Hogan also discusses the idea of a wrestlers union, just as the idea of a fighters union has long been proposed.

Catching up with Anthony “Rumble” Johnson – PRO MMA exclusive interview

Anthony “Rumble” Johnson started off his UFC career with a bang as he knocked out Chad Reiner in 13 seconds flat. Unfortunately for him, in his second UFC outing he was choked out by the much more experienced Rich Clementi. Following that, he bounced back with another first round knockout, this time over Tommy Speer at “UFC Fight Night 13.”

Then in Johnson’s next fight he received the now infamous pokes in the eye (five times to be exact) and ended up losing an extremely controversial third round TKO. However, Johnson got revenge in his next fight with a vicious head kick knockout of poke-master Kevin Burns last December. “Rumble’s” most recent bout was in February, when he made another first round casualty out of Luigi Fioravanti.
