I've been looking at where this thing is headed. TNA seems to have some sort of idea for which direction to take these storylines. Unfortunately, including all of Fortune into those plans seems a bit out of the question, unless it all happens the week before the PPV. I'm not above saying I was wrong, BUT upon closer inspection of WWE's PPV schedule, they are running NO PPV's whatsoever in March. Victory Road is TNA's March PPV and there are two possible outcomes for how things could play out.

1. They move to a multiple competitor main event for March, probably a three way building to a full blown 6 man match at Lockdown the following month instead of the Lethal Lockdown match.

2. They maintain a one on one format for the coming two PPV's, building alliances leading up to the Lethal Lockdown match in April.

If you had your choice, what would you pick?

In other news around TNA, Samoa Joe, who is one of my favorite performers on the roster, is finally getting some more momentum and this time, in a new division. With Crimson and Morgan dominating the Tag Team Division (or what's left of it), Joe has started teaming with Magnus of British Invasion fame. Not going to mince words, They have some good chemistry and could become a new and rising team, provided they can come up with a snappy name....something that could sell. In any case, it's nice to see Joe AND Magnus getting some screen time.

With Madison Rayne, Gail Kim, and Mickie James dominating the screen time for the Knockouts Division, I have to wonder what TNA has in store for the rest of the Knockouts in the weeks leading up to Against All Odds and after. I love Mickie and Gail; they are a credit to the division, but I am really wanting to see some Velvet, ODB, Rosita, Sarita, and the rest of the division TNA touts so proudly.

If there was ever a time when TNA could pull ahead in terms of quality, this would be it. WWE is at the place where they are going to be ramping towards Wrestlemania and WWE's history shows nothing but difficulty in the months shortly following the one per year spectacle. TNA capitalizing on that fact by doing everything they can to be different would be the smart way to play the game....which is why I suggested the Fortune feud to begin with.....because it's something different from what we're seeing anywhere else in the mainstream.
