"A hungry wolf at all the herd will run, In hopes, through many, to make sure of one." - William Congreve
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I now present to you my final article with the delight of "future endeavoring" myself from Bleacher Report, moving on to
much bigger and better things, ready to decipher the code of my future.
And with no time to waste, let's begin our arrival to the infamous structure that is the Tower of London and the scandal that occurred.
"Her Majesty has summoned me to the Royal Palace that is the Tower of London. Feelings of doubt and anxiety overwhelm me..."
Desmond Wolfe began his journey to TNA Wrestling after he failed a pre-screening physical test that was orchestrated by WWE.
Although WWE apparently dropped the ball with him, TNA decided to pick it up and run with it as he would then make his mark in TNA, by viciously attacking one of the most respected and gifted all-around wrestlers of all time, Kurt Angle.
The following week, a very irritated Angle challenged the newcomer to a Street Fight, where he won via referee stoppage after a nasty lariat which put Angle on the shelf for a set amount of weeks.
"It seems that I'm well-liked amongst the people here, I guess my very presence here is accepted..."
The feud between Wolfe and Angle entered its state of validation and would soon rise to prominence, as they went on to deliver a classic bout at Turning Point 2009.
Although Angle won via submission, Wolfe wasn't finished yet.
Their critically acclaimed feud would drag onto Final Resolution 2009, where these two bitter rivals would face off in a "Three Degrees of Pain" match, (aka Two out of Three Falls match). After both Angle and Wolfe were tied, the brutal "Six Sides of Steel" match would come into play, but Angle's contused and disfigured body managed to escape safely.
"The once glowing faces have now dimmed. The very respected have turned sour and bitter. What has happened here?"
As 2009 would come to a close, the glamour of the live January 4 edition of Impact! would begin to rear its ugly head, as TNA attempted to draw the disenfranchised fans with familiar faces, adding on to the nostalgia factor.
In the midst of all the "gray-haired chaos," Wolfe would begin to move on to feud with "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero.
After he scored a victory over The Pope, Wolfe would also begin to debut a new valet by the name of Chelsea, at Genesis.
"They've began to get closer, as if they're under the command of the queen...it looks like they're trying to capture me!?"
After defeating Dinero once again in a rematch at Genesis, Wolfe qualified in the Eight Card Stud Tournament at Against All Odds to crown a new number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, but lost in the first round to the eventual winner, D'Angelo Dinero.
Soon after suffering that defeat, Wolfe would began to align himself (and Chelsea of course) with Ric Flair and AJ Styles, in their battle against Hogan, Abyss, and D'Angelo Dinero.
Wolfe's alignment with Flair proved to have some success, as he received his first title shot for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in a Fatal Four-Way, against AJ Styles, D'Angelo Dinero, and Abyss.
"It appears that I'm at a loss for words. As I lay here a beaten and broken man, I'm awaiting for a trial due to the accusations of high treason..."
Wolfe and Dinero were scheduled to face off once again, but the resulting match was cancelled due to Wolfe attacking Dinero and re-injuring his ankle.
They did, however, get their rematch as planned, with Wolfe picking up the win after hitting Dinero with a chain, via referee distraction from Chelsea.
The following week, Wolfe was involved in his first squash match ever, losing to Dinero in just under two minutes.
After Lockdown, TNA has introduced a new "revolutionary" Championship Ranking System, where fans would be allowed to choose who they think should be the No. One contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Much to the surprise of everyone, Desmond Wolfe led the first poll from start to finish, beating the likes of Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson, and Abyss.
Sounds like a good thing, right? Well...
To the delight of many Desmond Wolfe fans, we were treated to a gratuitous three-minute squash match involving him and Rob Van Dam for the prestigious TNA World Heavyweight Title.
Just soon after Wolfe once again led in the polls, TNA has decided to introduce a "championship committee" at the expense of many fans who hungered for Wolfe to lead in the polls again, only to get reset every time we turned our backs.
Why is Desmond Wolfe being cursed to the pit of obscurity you ask?
Well, one could blame the current climate of TNA Wrestling that is inhabited by Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff that the future main-eventer Desmond Wolfe has been reduced to a glorified jobber, currently in a harebrained storyline with Abyss, and maybe Orlando Jordan.
One could also hope that the current feud he has with Abyss should culminate at Slammiversary tomorrow night, but we should all cross our fingers and hope for the best, shall we?
"It appears that I'm a 'scapegoat' in this situation. As they carry me unmercifully to the trial, the glistening light from the open door cements hope for whatever my future holds in store for me..."
So with that being said, I bid all of you adieu. I also thank all of you faithful writers that took some time out of your lives to read my article.
This is a final farewell from yours truly, the once promising writer amongst the elite, Devon Givens.
