In what can only be considered the strangest feud ever...

This weekend WWE Legend Honky Tonk Man went on another one of his infamous rants. This time he took to his website to air out his complaints.

According to HTM, his problems with Hogan stem back to the "Hogan and Friends Tour."

Allegedly, Honky was supposed to be a part of this tour and was pulled due to a verbal bout between he and Bubba the Love Sponge. As most of the wrestling world knows Hogan and Bubba are very close. So obviously, Hogan was going to side with the "shock jock."

Honky also had some comments to say about Hogan's character. He mentions that: "They (WWE) put over Hogan, built him up as Babe Ruth and he spat in their face. Hogan was due to wrestle John Cena at a recent past WrestleMania but couldn't commit due to his health issues." He added: "Then (Hogan) announces at Vince's backyard MSG that he's signed with TNA. Now after taking TNA nowhere Hogan's had to take a pay cut with TNA and mark my words within 6 months he'll be gone."

The biggest truth that HTM preached was in the following statement:

"THQ recently signed Hogan to WWE All Stars as his contract allows for outside licensing which is a slap in the face to TNA. Would McMahon let any WWE star sign a TNA merchandise deal? How is that taking 'the company to the next level' Brother!"

Most fans really feel that Hogan has drained TNA since his arrival. Sadly, if he really supported TNA he would never have agreed to be a part of a WWE video game. Especially when Hogan is featured in a TNA game for Nintendo DS and PSP.

Which leaves one to ask: how does his WWE All-Stars presence help the TNA brand?

Needless to say, Honky Tonk Man has some deep issues here with Hogan and it's up to the public to decipher what's truth and what's Honky's "reality."
