WWE News: Contracts of Several Top TNA Stars Expiring, Are They WWE Bound?
WWE News: Could WWE Pick Up Some TNA Stars?
WWE and TNA are undoubtedly the biggest wrestling promotions in the United States, and as expected, there's a lot of crisscross between the two.
We all like to joke that TNA is "WCW circa 2000" or "nothing but washed-up WWE rejects," but it's not always TNA taking on former WWE stars. Sometimes it's the exact opposite, with people likeKharma (a.k.a. Awesome Kong) or Kaval (a.k.a. Low Ki) making a name for themselves in TNA before moving to the WWE.
Still, it's not very often that we see TNA stars jump to the WWE and have huge amounts of success. I guess you could count Christian, but he's a WWE-first guy.
Anyway, it seems that Vince McMahon isn't fond of pushing wrestlers who rise to fame anywhere other than the WWE. But could that change soon?
Well, with some recent news out of TNA, that may be the case.
The TNA contracts of several top stars are set to expire later this year – including Samoa Joe and a yet-to-be-named TNA champion.
In related news, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff’s TNA contracts are currently schedule to expire next week right around Bound for Glory.
Let's not even bother talking about possibly seeing Hogan and Bischoff back in the WWE. I know it's "never say never" in the wrestling business, but the chances of those two working with Vince McMahon again are about .0001 percent.
As for someone like Samoa Joe, the WWE would be foolish not to give him a look..and even more foolish not to sign him. Samoe Joe has gotten the endorsement of WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, and he's always been underrated and misused in TNA.
He could thrive in the WWE if the company ever got behind him as a monster heel, and I'm sure a number of these other "top stars" from TNA could contribute to the company as well.
You have to think that the WWE brass will be looking long and hard at these guys as the end of their contracts near. You can't miss out on new talent simply because it came from TNA, Vince.
If I were you, I'd keep that in mind, especially if names like Bobby Roode and James Storm can't agree to new deals with TNA, either
