Dot Net TNA News: Hulk Hogan's agent comments on his client's involvement in the WWE 2K14 video game

Sep 5, 2013 - 03:00 PM

Peter Young, the longtime agent for Hulk Hogan, told that neither he nor his client signed off on Hogan's appearance in the WWE 2K14 video game. Rather, Young struck a deal with THQ in 2008 for Hogan to appear in a WWE video game. Young stated that 2K Sports had a renewal option on Hogan's old contract, which was acquired as part of their purchase of the WWE video game license when THQ filed for bankruptcy.

Powell's POV: Essentially, Young is claiming that 2K Sports simply triggered a renewal agreement. WWE 2K14 creative director Cory Ledesma mentioned in an interview that 2K14 had to overcome the "hurdle" of getting Hogan involved in with the project or the "30 Years of WrestleMania" mode would not have been possible. I'm sure there will continue to be questions asked about that statement until Ledesma or someone from the video game company offers more details, but the Hogan camp continues to insist that he did not sign a new agreement. Honestly, I'm not even sure why it would be an issue even if he had, assuming his TNA deal provides him with the freedom to do so.
