Hogan, Shane Helms, Stacy Keibler & Dawn Marie, Superstars & Impact Rundown

-- Chris Jericho will be co-hosting the Revolver Golden Gods awards on April 8 in Los Angeles, which will air on May 22 on VH-1 Classic. Jericho is also nominated in the "Most Metal Athlete" category.

-- Here are some recent random quotes from Hulk Hogan about TNA: "I had the chance to get with TNA and I saw the talent that they have, and all the stuff they are doing right there, and I had an opportunity to make history." "I had to make a choice. Do I want to be a statistic and do a bunch of stupid stuff, or do I want to do the right thing?" "This opportunity came with TNA and I had a chance to feel young again, and get some spring in my step and I knew the end of the story at WWE, this is life after life for me here at TNA. It's a new beginning for me."

-- This evening on Twitter (http://twitter.com/HurricaneHelms), Gregory Helms posted his first public comments since being fired from WWE last Friday. "Options being weighed, plans being made," Helms wrote. "Thx everyone for the overwhelming support. It means the world." It wouldn't shock me at all to see him wind up in TNA once his WWE 90 day no-compete clause is up.

-- According to www.JustinGabriel.com, NXT rookie Justin Gabriel (born Paul Lloyd, Jr.) turns 29 years old today.
