Hogan-RVD Excuse, RAW Ratings notes

-- To follow up on some reports from earlier today, there are many people within TNA who are upset that the big surprise of Rob Van Dam reportedly agreeing to a deal with TNA leaked out as we noted earlier. Hulk Hogan dropped a huge hint while making a radio appearance earlier today and claimed to TNA management that he didn't realize video was being taken as he did the "R-V-D" gesture while hinting that TNA had signed a new major talent. Right. It was also reported earlier that Spike TV even announced on their official Twitter account that RVD has signed with TNA but that was after Hogan first spoiled it.
