Far too often, fans get wrapped up in "fantasy booking" and looking at "what if" scenarios. As a somebody who focuses on logic and sense, I try my best to stay close to reality.
However, a recent news bite has drawn my attention.
According to an interview with the PWTorch Livecast, Matt Morgan said his TNA contract was coming due. He was in his final year and would "keep his options open," pertaining to a return to WWE.
For those unaware, he had a small run almost a decade ago under Vince McMahon. It was a disaster from the beginning, but nothing can be taken away from time and improvement.
Years later, Morgan is a different person with a different skill set.
Also, this "recent" revelation is not surprising. If you are a fan of Morgan's and have followed his career close, you will remember similar news last year.
In August, I covered WWE contacting Morgan. That was a few months ago, but I assume the interest is still there. With a wild summer in WWE, a talent with his size would be amazing.
Of course, Kevin Nash filled that role at Summerslam.
Just a few months later in December, I made it very clear that I was a fan of Morgan. Despite many fans ready to jump on his bandwagon, I was always there.
With the title reading, "Matt Morgan Could Be a Major Star One Day" you know I was serious. The man has always been on my radar, but being in TNA all but kills that.
I have said it before, and I will again.
TNA Impact Wrestling has yet to create one "real" star.
There are many great talents there. Tons of them are new, while others were already made in other companies. It doesn't matter in this case.
Matt Morgan is one of the few that WWE is right in going after.
Yes, one of few.
I could name (maybe) five guys in TNA right now worth going to WWE. In my opinion, Morgan is one that is near the top.
Add in James Storm, Bobby Roode and maybe one or two others...
With Matt Morgan at least teasing the possibility of heading back to the main stage, I hope he does so. In his mid-30s, he is a smart man. Matt knows he can't do this forever.
Look no further than Lord Tensai. The man was a top tier talent in Japan, yet knew his days were numbered in this business. He is taking the chance at a higher pay and much larger platform.
You could even use Brock Lesnar as an example. The man can't wrestle forever. He is making the most money possible for a run in WWE. Nobody can fault him for it.
In the end, it is up to Matt Morgan.
Does he want to stay at an Orlando sound stage with 1,000 non-paying tourists in the mid-card for TNA? Does he want to come to WWE for a chance at much more?
Whether it works out for the better, I would welcome him back.
The man could be a major star one day. It just can't happen in TNA...
