So we've got Flyers, Tag Teams, and Women represented; now we need to carve out a couple of things, the first of which is something I'd like more than ANYTHING, the special attraction. SO without any further ado, I propose a Legends Tag Team Match-up.
Sting and Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker
This match is for SO many reasons, not the least of which being the two older veterans. Undertaker and Sting will need SOMETHING to cover the fact that neither are in their prime anymore. And even though Sting is, BY FAR, the more spry of the two and wrestles his schedule accordingly, I would argue even he could use the more agile and fresh mat tactics of Angle in his corner to help hide any shortcomings that may have accumulated over the years. Likewise, Michaels can STILL wrestle circles around most athletes HALF his age and this kind of match would give The Undertaker to still be featured in a prominent match AND look like a million bucks with pacing more to his style.
Follow THAT up with a TV/Intercontinental/ United States Title Division Match.
Antonio Cesaro vs. Samoa Joe vs. Devon vs. Christian
This match is due to the standings in TNA for the TV Title AND since Kofi Kingston is in another match AND because Christian will be returning to TV shortly anyway, I figured this would be the best blend of all talents that could represent either brand.
A World Title shuffle is something I REALLY want to see here with another big bout, this time involving 6.
John Cena vs. Jeff Hardy vs. James Storm vs. Bobby Roode vs. Ryback vs. Dolph Ziggler
No explanations are needed here.
And last, but not least....the mismatch of the decade......The Shield vs. Aces and Eights.
Since I won't be going into any depth in later columns to cover this, I just want to say that it was nice knowing The Shield could show up for a bludgeoning of such a colossal magnitude and, even though they would put up a decent fight to begin with, the sheer numbers behind the Aces and Eights faction would see The Shield dismantled in such a way that could not be done justice on free TV. Don't misunderstand my match here as a reflection of how well The Shield operates, my point in making this match has little to do with function and more to do with how successful each faction can be as a unit. The Aces and Eights held nearly an entire roster at bay while a dedicated few maimed Austin Aries on live television....can The Shield say the same? The element of surprise means little if the stable is too small to defend itself against a small army. The defense rests, your Honor.
