No Guts, no Glory.
There was plenty to talk about before, during and after Sunday night’s Bound for Glory pay-per-view. Some questions were answered, some were left to be discussed and there was plenty of confusion to sift through.
And now, we must wait four days to see part of it unravel.
It just shows how good reality television can be at times. And like a good soap opera, there was plenty of drama to leave us wanting more, just as Bully Ray when his former tag team partner, Devon, was unmasked as the leader of Aces and Eights.
I am pretty sure there is more of that where Eric Bischoff is and his cronies.
Bound for Glory did not disappoint (I give it a solid B+) in the effort department or in the wrestling angles.
I loved Bobby Roode and James Storm and thought the tag team Triple Threat Match really took on its own life.
There is a great feud brewing between Magnus and Samoa Joe. That alone was the price of admission. And then, we have a new TNA World Champion. Where do we go from here?
Does Austin Aries get another shot at the title? Does Bobby Roode jump back into the title mix? Will there be others who think they deserve a title shot? Can TNA find enough matches to pacify the major players in this company? There are too many questions with not enough answers. That is exactly how you want a pay-per-view event to end—leaving the fan wanting more.
TNA delivered Sunday night. It was better than SummerSlam and better than most WWE PPV events this year (yes, that is my opinion). The niche promotion that works on the basis of “wrestling” and the theories of the old NWA (Dusty Rhodes would be so proud) showed again it can pull off something great.
Now, as fans and as a writer, we wait for Thursday to see what the powers (Hulk Hogan) have to say and to see if there are any more surprises for us. Who else will be “unmasked” in the “Aces and Eights” storyline? When will EBischoff rear his devilish head again? Will other ECW alumni resurface? Can we guess that Matt Morgan or Garett Bischoff become part of this grand scheme?
Does ODB finally get a shot at Tara and the Knockouts Title? Does Gail Kim make a “face” change and beat her rival? What happens to Miss Tessmacher (if she needs consoling, I am here)?
Now that Jeff Hardy is champion, does his feud with Austin Aries continue? Does AJ Styles jump back into the fray? Can we see more of Hardy and Aries in the ring because it is highly entertaining?
And finally, will Samoa Joe remain the baddest man in the company?
All of these are questions that need answers, but you cannot start getting them until Thursday.
Oh, the wait is already killing me.
