TNA President Dixie Carter recently spoke to BANG Showbiz, via AZCentral.com, and discussed the importance of Hulk Hogan to TNA. Carter noted that Hogan was the most famous wrestler in the world, and his fame rivals the late Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley.

"He (Hulk) is bigger than any brand, company, name - he is synonymous with wrestling and is probably one of the most recognisable faces or figures on the entire planet. Name me someone who is alive today who'd be more recognisable in any corner of the world? In places like Africa and Asia, or if you were walking in Thailand? Princess Diana or Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley maybe? But they aren't even with us anymore. The Rock?

"Well, if you are walking in a village in Africa would people know who The Rock was? I think his film work has been outstanding. I'm a huge fan of The Rock, I think he is phenomenal, but would that happen?"
