Matt Morgan... The Blueprint.
While the name is a bit of a stretch as far as his "place" in the wrestling biz is concerned, It seems as if Matt is following one.
I'll say that, as far as in-ring ability is concerned, Matt is far from the best TNA has to offer. He is athletically gifted, no doubt about that, but he still struggles at times with the pacing of his matches and with his ability to "tell a story". I'm not saying he is terrible but there is room for improvement. Matt is a giant. At 7 foot 300+ Matt is one of only a small handful of 7 footers to be successful at the upper levels of the business without being a joke or one dimensional. Kevin Nash comes to mind.
The similarities between the two don't end there. Like Nash, Morgan has charisma and mic skills. One positive aspect of having established stars like Nash, Flair, Hogan, Dreamer, Angle et al, for the younger talent in TNA us the wealth of knowledge they bring to the table. If these younger guys are smart they will try and learn every thing they can from these veterans and use what they learn to become better performers in and out of the ring. They have to use what they know as a "blueprint" for success.
Matt Morgan seems to be doing just that. His promos, especially as of late, have been terrific. He's really selling his storyline and making it not only believible but compelling. If he continues to learn and put what he learns to use Matt Morgan could become one of the best in the business.

I have always liked Matt Morgan and if he continues to improve both in the ring and on the mic like he has in the past year then hell yeah I agree with you

Correct.
He is a good investment for TNA to make in for the future if they want something special non-WWE.

I pretty much completely agree with you. I believe Morgan is probably the most athletically gifted seven-footer the business has had. His mic skills weren't too good when he first came in, but he has continually improved in that are. Morgan is a perfect example of the only reason I am glad Ric Flair is in TNA: because young guys can learn ring psychology from a man who understands it better than almost anyone in the business. I think building and pacing a match are second nature when you understand ring psychology. If he can just get that down, he has the potential to be a World Champion and a hell of a performer.

Technically, he is more like 6'8 but thats not the point. Matt has progressed significantly through the years on his mic skills and wrestling ability.

Matt has improved but knowing tna they will find a way of messing up this storyline with him and the coke head Hardy because lets face it he isn't a star name so he wont wear the heavyweight title at the moment.

Sigh.........probably

I'll never forgive TNA for the way they dropped the ball after his match with Kurt Angle at BFG

it was nice to see Morgan beat Hardy CLEAN at the turning point PPV... even if Bischoff's kid screwed it up (I'm talking the crap way he sold Hardys pretend kick out not the storyline screwup.) nepotism anyone??

U just know as soon as Angle, Anderson and the wanker Matt Hardy turn up in the new year Morgan will be back to a mid carder proberley turning from a face to a heel every couple of months

Nothing against Morgan but i just don't see it in him. When I see him on tv I wonder why is he getting pushed. After reading other comments I'll have to take a closer look. But as of right now I only see him getting pushed for his size and look. IMO overrated!

Unfortunately, that's probably completely correct. Angle still deserves the top of the card though. Anderson would deserve it if he could stay healthy long enough to enjoy a good storyline. (Yes, I know the most recent injury is not his fault.) Worst of all, I'm certain that Matt Hardy will get pushed to the top of the card as soon as he gets there. He doesn't deserve it at all. He is nowhere near the caliber of athlete that he was from about 3 to 7 years into his career. In any event, he is a nearly retarded, grape eating, shit stirrer. So TNA will go crazy over him because of the dirt sheet buzz that will come along with his signing. All of that spells M-I-D-C-A-R-D for Matt Morgan. They'll go back to pointlessly and aimlessly throwing him between storylines and heel/face.

I didn't see it in him at first either. TNA gave him a lot more time than WWE, but I still didn't see much in him. The point is that he has continually improved over time. He's always been a talented athlete. The problem was that he lacked the mic skills and ring psychology. I'm sure that, if you watch some older videos of him compared to now, you'll notice that he improved by leaps and bounds. Sometimes on a weekly basis. His psychology is still a little weeks, but, again, it is significantly better than ever. That's the only good thing about Flair being their. Or even having Nash around still. Nash is nowhere near the talent that he once was, but he knows how to work a crowd very well. Morgan can learn a lot from both of them, as well as Angle. I would recommend that he spend some time learning from Sting, but he's not around at the time. Even if he was, Styles is usually his pet while he's there.

I totally agree, he has improved alot since his wwe days and he's one of the few guys i really like in TNA right now.
He walked into the title frame by chance because of Anderson's concussion didnt he? And sadly i dont think Jeff will be losing the belt anytime soon... Hope he does get it at some point though

I agree with what everyone has said so far. While I don't think the strap is coming off of Hardy on this occasion, hopefully TNA will see how Matt's storyline has been carried out to perfection by him, and they will put the title on him in the future.

I think it's going to be a while before the belt gets taken off of Hardy. Unfortunately, with Hogan and Bischoff in charge, it's probably going to be a lot longer before the strap gets put on Morgan.

Please allow the most stand out, most liked and has the best f-e-u-d in the EWN community to give his infinite wisdom on this matter. I like Matt Morgan. He is a beast. He is what a pro wrestler should look like. The thing about Morgan that i don't like is his voice. It just doesn't seem to gel well with his size IMO. I know its not his fault how his voice is, its just I don't really enjoy listening to it. I guess I'm pointing out flaws when there really isnt any but I'm surprised no one brought this up. Maybe I'm just weird for doing so but like I have said so many times before, there is only one IPEEINTHESHOWER.

U MAD???

I'll never be okay with Matt Morgan. You're right that he has the abilities of Kenvin Nash, which are pretty limited. Unlike Nash, he can't tell a story in the ring. His promos always sound like he's yelling into the mic. Even when he tries to boast in the ring is looks bad. He's just another big man to me. No better than Rob Terry and Hernandez. Even though Hernandez is way better than Morgan.

I cant believe im saying this, but i agree about the voice. I honestly cant see why they gave morgan the face turn instead of Aj. AJ vs Hardy for the tna title is a way bigger main event than Morgan vs hardy. And imo Morgan is Upper midcar talent topps. He reminds me of Ray Trailor, he probably reminds Hogan of Trailor too thats why hes getting a push.
