So THIS is where things come full circle. It's been over a year since James Storm won and lost the World Title in a week, giving critics plenty to whine about while also creating TNA's mega-heel, Bobby Roode. Tonight, something gives because between Storm and Daniels, it's winner take all.
Dixie Carter, this afternoon, tweeted that the winner of tonight's match-up between Daniels and Storm goes on to a World Title shot on the 24th of this month. For those of you who aren't keeping track, that would make it Championship Thursday. SO, for the number 1 Contendership, one of the two will emerge the victor, while the other goes home with nothing. If I had to pick one right now, I want it to be Daniels, but with James Storm as high as he is with fans, I just can't see it.
That brings us to WHO goes into that particular Thursday as the champion and who squares off as the challenger. My money is on Roode vs. Storm one last time for the belt as TNA is very much into heel vs. face matches. This, folks, would be the rubber match as they split one match apiece. We saw Lockdown of last year end with Storm kicking Roode out the door and into a victory. We ALSO saw Storm get his revenge at Bound for Glory last year as well. This would be one last time to put the rivalry to rest.
SO.....since the curtain has yet to be drawn and the stage, even now, is being set, I leave you with one final thought......
Enjoy the Show!!!
