In the course of the next few months, changes are most definitely in store. While not all of these changes will be noticeable to the naked eye, I'm under the impression fans of this brand will be sure to be surprised. To that tune, I'd like to make a few predictions if I may so bold.
Prediction 1.) TNA will be looking to put together a broadcast package to include it's Xplosion show to the Spike network's schedule. That will mean another televised show, something like Velocity or Sunday Night Heat were....another show, albeit an hour long to both introduce fans to new performers, but also to futher larger storylines.
Prediction 2.) TNA will pick up at least 6 more talents to round out their roster. My guess is 3 to put into the top tier to bring up their homegrown talents whether that be in the Tag Team Category or X Division or even the World Title, 1 more Knockout, and a Wild Card to shock the masses.
Prediction 3.) TNA will drop the Knockouts Tag Titles. This has been needed for quite some time, but I hope they do this sooner than later. There simply are not enough Knockouts to make battling for the belts meaningful. It may have been a nice idea from the beginning with Daffney, Hamada, Kong, Alissa Flash, and Taylor Wilde on the roster to make enough tag teams, it certainly is NOT the case now.
To put a bit of emphasis on the news of CM Punk, I hope he does make a return to TNA. For those of you who didn't know, he was here once already. Granted, his stay was brief, but it would be interesting to see what he might be able to bring to the table. I think he's a very entertaining talent both to watch in the ring AND to listen to on the mic. He plays a heel very well and is able to generate some genuine heat from fans, which is a sign of that X Factor it takes in order to get to that top tier and stay there. I'm sure the writers with TNA would have a field day just finding ways to incorporate his talents with the current crop already on the roster.
Feuds with Angle, Anderson, RVD, and a renewed battle with Jeff Hardy all come to mind on the surface, but an X Division feud with Samoa Joe could make them both step forward in the eyes of TNA bookers across the board. Think about it....
