There were various reasons behind Hulk Hogan’s decision to quit WWE. Here they are:
– He felt that at this point in his career, he should not be promoted as just another superstar, and should have his TV appearances be pushed as a big deal. He didn’t like being the third-biggest face in the tag match last week either (behind Angle & Lesnar). He also had general creative problems with the Mr. America character.
– He was upset that when the crowd chanted for him on SmackDown!, Angle and Lesnar did not improvise and tag him in (to keep the heat alive), but instead followed the scripted scenario.
– Hogan was upset that SmackDown! has been drawing less than RAW (it drew considerably less in the back-to-back MSG shows last week). He does not like being on the weaker show.
– The problem can likely be solved financially, along with the return of Hulk Hogan, and the end of the Mr. America character.
