TNA is on the heels of the very last tapings before Bound for Glory and the confidences are high, as they should be. The card is all but finalized and the ink is still drying from the Hogan/ Sting signing. Jeff Hardy, Jeff Jarrett, James Storm, and Gunner seem to have a bit of rivalry and, I believe this will all culminate at the event itself and possibly lasting until Final Resolution. With Hogan putting the Bound for Glory in his rearview, I have little doubt Dixie will return to the Impact Zone with Sting handing the company back into her capable hands, being far wiser this time around.
In the wake of Immortal dying off, I'm placing bets that things won't really be dying off as Crimson, Morgan, and Joe may very well determine the new number 1 contender for the World Heavyweight Title in the coming weeks. I'm also going to put money on Pope and Devon holding some gold in the weeks following Bound for Glory as their chemistry is fast getting interesting.
I do have one thing to pitch....with James Storm, so to speak, out a partner, why not do something different and turn him away from Roode? Before anyone thinks I'm talking about a heel turn, let me explain. Roode needs his focus to be completely on retaining the title or chasing it and to that end, Beer Money can't have divided focus. James Storm begins calling himself the world's premier tag team specialist, enlisting the fans to choose his partner each month. For 2 or 3 months allow the fans to pick someone new each time. He works with each performer and then they go their separate ways. Then, TNA management decides they're going to pick his partner and give them a title shot since Storm has done so well.
Fast forward to Genesis. Two partners have come and gone and it comes time for the main event. James Storm is in his dressing room saying that it doesn't matter who it is, he's bringing home more gold. The door opens and his face is in disbelief, but the partner isn't revealed in the segment. Instead, the action goes back to the ring as their opponents enter the ring. When it comes time to play entrance music, a familiar tune rings out and "Wildcat" Chris Harris comes out with James Storm to America's Most Wanted's entrance theme.
Now, whether they win or lose, it really doesn't matter. What matters is that AMW would be back and giving old school fans a nostalgia trip as an added bonus. Toss in Gail Kim to the mix and you'd have a throwback all the way to 2004.
