Does Devon's TNA TV Title Victory Set Up an Eventual Feud with Magnus?

Charlie GSenior Writer IDecember 8, 2012

As you may have seen or heard by now, the Sgt. in Arms for the Aces and Eights, Devon, has reclaimed the TNA Television Championship from Samoa Joe.

Devon, who never lost the title to begin with, issued the challenge to the reigning champion last week. Samoa Joe, never one to back down from a fight, accepted the challenge.

This past Thursday, with a major assist from some ladies and the Director of Chaos, Devon defeated Samoa Joe, thus kicking off the Sergeant's second reign with the red-strapped belt.

While Devon's victory has been met with mixed reviews, one question remains: What's next? 

The Aces and Eights have obtained some TNA championship gold on top of their reign of terror over the company.

Devon's last reign as TV Champion didn't really see any direction to it. He won the title at Victory Road earlier this year when accepting Robbie E's open challenge for the belt.

From April to June, Robbie E and Robbie T would make failed attempts at Devon's new championship.

When Devon's TNA contract came to an end, and both parties couldn't renegotiate a deal, Devon left the company and the TV title was vacated. This is where Samoa Joe swooped in and became the third TNA Grand Slam Champion in history.

As Devon was revealed as a member of Aces and Eights, Samoa Joe was enjoying his reign as Television Champion. Eventually, Devon and Joe's business would cross paths as the Aces and Eights targeted, and injured, Magnus after several failed attempts at Joe and the belt.

This Jan. 25 and 26, Impact Wrestling returns to London, England for a double dose of television tapings. 

What better place for Magnus to make his triumphant return than in his home country, England? As seen from UK tapings earlier this year, the UK crowd loves their hometown hero. Even while depicting a heel role, Magnus was one of the most popular stars on the show.

With Magnus' return, surely he'll want revenge on the group who forced him onto the sidelines to begin with, no? The group that not only injured him, but took the prize that he was chasing: the TNA Television Championship.

To make his revenge that much sweeter, I believe Magnus will return during the UK tapings to vow his revenge on the Aces and Eights. It'll be at those UK tapings where, in my opinion, Magnus' long hunt will finally pay off, and he'll become the new Television Champion.

The cards are in TNA's hands, and it's only a matter of how they play them. Here, they potentially have a tremendous story and it'd be a shame to see them pass on such a moment.
