If this were an option 5 years ago, I would have been against it because the climate wouldn't have been right for it, but right now, there are some things taking place that simply beg me to talk about. The largest of these things happens to be in the realm of the WWE Universe. It seems that there is a certain young talent who has held nearly every title to be held in WWE who may be on the way out. Now, if the rumors are true, we may get a chance to see some kind of magic take place that would blow the minds of a great many wrestling fans the world over......a crossover years in the making.
Imagine it......the event at the end of Impact last week being explained in a series of vignettes. A shadowy figure whispering that things are about to get a whole lot more dangerous for a living legend like the Stinger. Suddenly Sting's baseball bat doesn't seem all that helpful as each time he looks to get close to the man behind the curtain, he's gone. His mind games continue until the week before Bound for Glory when an announcement is made to change things. A match has been signed that will make the critics take notice and move TNA into a brand new era. Sting vs. the mastermind who will finally reveal himself at the event.
Sting comes to the ring with a big entrance. He stands in the ring as the lights go out. Strobes illuminate as a few final words come across the jumbotron. "All legends fall eventually....." At that moment, the lights concentrate on the man who now stands in the middle of the stage. Randy Orton has arrived in TNA. Just picture it. A year ago, I wouldn't have cared less, but now, that would be a game changer in virtually every sense of the words. Randy Orton could have a real lasting impact on the climate of the wrestling world with his very first appearance if it were against the Icon himself.
From there, can you even imagine? Orton vs. Styles. Orton vs. Aries. Orton vs. Crimson. Orton vs. Roode. Even though Crimson isn't the most charismatic or the best in ring tactician, Orton could, quite possibly give him the best match of his career so far. If WWE decides to let Orton get into the open market, TNA will strike faster than even the Viper, himself.
