As noted earlier, there is said to be heat on Hulk Hogan in TNA for booking a licensing deal with 2K Sports to appear in WWE 2K14. Eric Bischoff blasted the reports on his Twitter, stating that there is no deal between Hulk Hogan and 2K Sports. According to Bischoff, WWE is utilizing existing trademarks and assets that they already own for the game. He wrote:
"Interesting to read the 'choir of idiots' suggesting that Hulk did a deal with 2K Sports. Illustrates just how ignorant these 'experts' are And how these 'experts' are attempting to frame a narrative to sell thier b.s.
"There is no Hulk Hogan/2K Sports deal. WWE is simply utilizing tradmarks/assets they currently own in a repackaged video game. Nothing new. But thats not what the parasites and morons who run dirt sites want you to know."
