I would have kept the belt on Roode, but I can't fault TNA in any way for the choice they made.
Joe/ A Double at BFG for the title
It would have made a lot more sense to keep the belt on Bobby. Think about it, if you keep it on him, you can have Storm win the series, then run the Storm/Roode feud again, with a good build up, then give the title to Storm. But, I'm a huge Aries mark, so I'm extremely happy to see him with the title. They could possibly even have Joe win the series then do Joe/Aries. I'd like to see that too. Who knows. But all in all, IMO, Roode should have the strap.
Good point. I'm kinda excited for Impact now lol
My only issue with Roode dropping the title is that the title was his main gimmick. He woulddo anything to hold onto it, and so from a charector viewpoint, it will be interesting to see where they go with him. My concern, given how past TNA champs have fallen into the wastelands, is that Roode is lost in the build up to BFG, and the heat between Roode and Storm will be lost.
Because I love you:
Is that allowed? Technically it is not a stream and it on the internet for fair use.
