TNA is getting ready for an invasion. No I don't mean the ECW guys, but the real invasion by THEY. Those that summoned Abyss to do their dirty work until they arrived in TNA.
This may sound like wishful thinking here, bleacher creatures, but, indulge me for a moment. It is possible that the ultimate invasion, the true invasion, involves a completely different company. RING OF HONOR!
After Abyss' THEY turned out NOT to be the ECW guys, the thought on everyone's minds are, Who are THEY? Well, could THEY be a possible ROH invasion?
Think about it. Before TNA got all WCW'd up it actually was a really good startup promotion. They would put on quality matches and have some of the best indy wrestlers on the market. With that, they built relationships with several indy promotions, as well as ROH. They would have some of the ROH's top stars on their programs, like Austin Aries, and Roderick Strong. Meanwhile they would take some of ROH's best like AJ Styles, Chris Daniels, and Samoa Joe.
They would use this relationship to trade stars until 2004 when TNA withdrew all their contracted wrestlers from ROH. That time is long gone now.
Cut to 2010. Now a stronger company, TNA is going after the powerhouse that is WWE, and losing. They took a huge hit moving to and from Monday nights. They need to do some desperate moves to bring a buzz back to its programs. Their Impacts have been great lately with the buzz of Abyss' THEY, the ECW guys showing up, and Flair looking to add to his group. TNA is making their Impact's enjoyable again. But, they need that one thing, to put them over the hurdle that is the 1.2 rating.
So, how do you go after a company like WWE? How do you bring an invasion in, that isn't the same crap we've seen over and over again? Easy, you make a real invasion. You make an invasion with a rival company, the same way WWF did with ECW back in the days. You give the fans a swerve.
We all think it's about ECW and Tommy Dreamer and blah blah and bash TNA left and right and what does TNA do, hit us right back with ROH. That is what they should do or is it what they ARE doing?
How would this story line go then? We start off with the man that made this all happen. The man who made Abyss pave the way. We start off with...
That's right. One of the original's of ROH and one of the elite of TNA. What better person to use as the leader of this Invasion into TNA by ROH? What better person to know all about TNA, and have the most revenge to gain?
Daniels has been sitting in ROH waiting for the moment to take down TNA, the company that pushed him to the side after all he's done for them. So, he recruits is friend Abyss. He asks him to pave the way for him and his ROH alumni. He is going to show them what the word Extreme really means.
Here comes Hard Justice 2010 and it's all about ECW blah blah. Abyss makes his way out and says THEY'RE HERE. Then we proceed to see ROH stars take out these ECW has been's one by one. No one knows what the hell is going on, but Abyss does. Here comes Impact, and the real invasion begins. Daniels and his alumni come out to the ring and we see some great match ups ensue.
Daniels goes after the Golden Boy of TNA. AJ Styles. He is mad that his so called friend let TNA do this to him without saying a word. AJ got his push to World Title and forgot about everyone else. AJ wants to kiss Flair's ass so he forgot about is friend Daniels.
Daniels has been waiting to get back for costing him a title shot at Turning Point 2009 after he hit Joe with the B.M.E and then AJ hit both of them with the 450 springboard to retain the title. He wants AJ and TNA to pay for what they've done for him, and he has brought in some of his friends to help.
Who does Daniels bring with him?
Jerry lynn comes out and goes after the main man. RVD. Why does he do this? Well, I first thought that Tyler Black should face him, being champ vs champ, but, because Lynn vs RVD is a classic match up and will draw more attention, I think that would be best.
It's time for Jerry Lynn to show RVD what it's like to be Extreme by giving their old school classic showcase, and since both these guys can still go, it will be a great match.
Tyler Black goes after Jeff Hardy, I know Huh? But I have to go with the way things are progressing right now. Since Black can't go after RVD and can't go after AJ, he goes after the #2 contender. The Charismatic Enigma.
He tells Hardy he is #2 in TNA but Black is #1 in ROH and since TNA's #1 ranked contender is Abyss, he will make sure that no one stands in Abyss' way. Setting up a feud between them.
Austin Aries is no stranger to facing several of the top TNA talent. But, it has been a long time. So who does he go after. Well, Austin wants the biggest dog in the yard. A man he has gone toe to toe with before. Samoa Joe.
Yeah, he calls out Joe and these two will give a good feud that will probably be one of the best on the card. Of course Joe doesn't care, he kills dudes lol.
Roderick comes out and challenges an old friend of his. A man that he feels ditched them in ROH for the money. A man that went over to kiss Flair's ass and changed his name to Wolfe. Desmond Wolfe. He says he may have gotten a new haircut, and name, but he still is the same worthless talent in the ring. Wolfe takes Strong on.
Who else do the ROH ex-tag champ's challenge but non other than the TNA tag team champions MCMG. This will be a great match of Ex-Champ vs Champ and we will see a great tag match. Stipulation or not these two teams can go. Personally I would like no ladders or anything. A straight tag team bout.
Now, why is this possible? Well, TNA has been in contact with Daniels about working out a contract. Rumors have been swirling that TNA who employed Lynn has been contacting him about a feud with RVD. TNA has also employed Austin Aries, and Roderick Strong.
A cross promotional Invasion could benefit both companies and pull some great ratings, and buy rates. If I was a business man trying to take a chunk out of the Giant that is WWE, that is how I would do it. Hey, anything is possible.
Now, I'm sure you can switch up these match up's in all different directions, and I would love to hear your thoughts, but, no matter what, this would be a great story line and swerve for the fans.
