Today, TNA general manager Hulk Hogan appeared at a press conference in his hometown of Tampa, FL to announce a set of Impact Wrestling events. The May 23 live episode of Impact Wrestling will take place in his hometown of Tampa, FL. The event will be housed in the USF Sun Dome.

"It's a huge deal for us," says Hogan. "To bring this here to my home town…I know the energy is going to tear the place down."

Hulk Hogan was given a USF football jersey by USF Coach Willie Taggart, while Taggart was given a TNA World Heavyweight Championship replica in exchange.

During the announcement, Aces and Eights appeared, attacked an onlooker, and escaped on the water riding jet skis.
