NOW, with Bound for Glory in the rear view and Turning Point speculation already put into the system, I'd like to take a moment to slow things down a bit and look at a few favorites. Since some of you are new to this page, I'd like to give spotlight to a few stars who either need to make a return for nostalgia's sake, or others who need to be signed for years.
Michael Shane aka. Matt Bentley
As Kazarian's former tag team partner, I can see no better time to bring him back if they want to make something special out of the Tag Team Division. Placing him with someone like Crimson or even one of the new Gut Check contestants like Sam Shaw would be a good way to give them a running start into the scene.
I happen to miss "the Alpha Male". Most fans of TNA would remember him from 2003 until his departure in 2006. Unfortunately, management of the day didn't treat him with the kind of fanfare they should have. By giving him a title run at the end of the Planet Jarrett storyline, they may have been able to keep him as a prominent member of the roster rather than allowing him to go to WWE after his run in 2006.
Of the big men who have left TNA, this is the guy I want to see the most. Why? He's agile, he works REALLY hard, and he's another TNA could have ridden right to the top on. His charisma wasn't top notch, but his ring work was refreshing for the day.
If there was EVER a doubt in people's minds that I would bring him up......remember this.....
