WARNING, CONTAINS A SPOILER FROM TONIGHTS iMPACT!
(Don't read any further if you don't want to be spoiled.)
(Seriously, don't complain.)
As everyone had probably read on this site or just about any other wrestling news website this past week, a huge twist in TNA's Heavyweight division has been revealed. The reigning (as of this post) champion, Rob Van Dam, is set to take some time off for whatever reason and is vacating the belt. So a tournament is set up to crown the next champion at the No Surrender PPV in September. Personally, there maybe a small problem with this, storyline wise.
Kurt Angle is on a quest to go through TNA's Top 10 claiming that if he loses, he will retire. So as we can all imagine, it should come to Bound For Glory where the match for Career v Belt will take place. Anytime now in this pretty predictable age of wrestling, when a career of a very established wrestler who put in many years of work is put on the line, they are most likely going to be retired, supposedly (cough*cough* Ric Flair) at the biggest PPV of the company. HBK did it, Flair tried to do it, it would only make sense for TNA to do it to Angle as well at their largest PPV. So back to the main issue at hand. With this tournament in the works, what does this mean for Kurt Angle? If he loses, he's retiring, but if he wins, then what?
There is no way Kurt Angle has enough in the tank to go a full one year run as champion to lose it a Bound For Glory 2011, does he? So for a second, lets pretend that he doesn't. Who in TNA now deserves to retired Angle?
Samoa Joe? They had some great feuds in the past, but oh yeah, TNA suspended him. He's out.
AJ Styles? Currently is one of the ones still on line at Ric Flair's "Space Mountain" so I doubt he is going to get off to go retired, arguably, the greatest pure wrestler of this century.
The Pope? Has not one a single belt in TNA, why does he get the honor?
Mr. Anderson? (see The Pope)
Sting? No one will believe that.
Obviously I have been wrong many times before, and probably again here, but think about it for a second. Where does TNA plan to go with this Angle? (sorry for the pun) There is only one way it can end right, at Bound For Glory, but the current storyline has got me wondering what TNA can pull out of their ass to do it the right way.
Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading. Crack, out.
