    @poko i disagree i hated morgan as a heel when he was part of fortune, on another note tho i hope by the time Morgan comes in John Laurinitus will have been fired and taken out of storylines and Teddy Long gets put in charge cuz i would burn my retinas if i had to see an entire “Big Johnny Stable” i swear

    Matt Morgan is kind of bland as a face, in my opinion. I’d rather see him brought in as part of Big Johnny’s stable as a replacement for Tensai. Let him feud with Cena and be packaged as a blue chip talent.

  • ant

    too be honest and i know this is probably gonna get like a million dislikes but i think if Matt Morgan DOES return to WWE they should have him feud with the now heel Big Show i mean Morgans huge and he could probably take The Big Show

    @poko I remember reading a report about WWE looking to “raid” some TNA talent, and that could very well be related to the lawsuit going on. I never would thought WWE would be interested in Shelley. I know it was reported they weren’t interested in Joe last year, but I am pretty sure he signed a one year contract. With the success of Punk and Bryan as main eventers, maybe they’ll change their mind about Joe if his contract is ending up soon. It sounds like Morgan is going back, doubt they’d ever want Anderson back. There’s definitely some more TNA talent that WWE would be interested in that I’d imagine. It sucks that they’re getting Shelley without Sabin, but I hope it works out for Shelley.

    The ratings are pretty much the same, if I remember right. Though neither promotion should concern themselves with ratings much at the moment, since the deeper we get into the playoffs, the more the NBA is going to eat professional wrestling’s lunch.

    Uh my comment was a Real Question WTF I get 3 Thumbs Down for?

    TNA hyping the return of the MCMG makes you wonder a little bit. It means, for one, that Shelley never indicated to them that he might not re-sign. Clearly, it seems they had very little warning that he was planning to leave. That’s kind of interesting, given the timing with the inside information allegation. It doesn’t necessary mean they are related, he might have been undecided for a long while, or changed his mind at the last minute, but it’s definitely curious.

    As for Samoa Joe, if I remember right, the WWE had “no interest” in him, which is just crazy.

    @ant. Yea they were i think dixie probably assumed shelly was going to resign. I know i will get blasted by all the tna supporters for sayign this. But dixie is a terrible person to run a wrestler orginization. She is extremly short sighted. I mean remeber a few years ago that hole bound for glory thing that was just thrown together because the they was supposed to be nash booker angle and the main event mafia coming back but instead nash and booker went to wwe so she threw together fortune joining immortal. THen she has them hype the guns huge without realzing that shelly might leave. I honestly wouldnt be suprised if sabin asks to get out of his contract to join shelly were ever he is going.

    I wonder if the writer involved the WWE/TNA lawsuit had anything to do with WWE offering Sabin a contract. I’m thinking Matt Morgan is next. I’d really like to see Samoa Joe given a chance in WWE because TNA has been wasting him for years now.

  • ant
