Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry, here are the highlights…
On Jeff Jarrett Returning to TNA: Jeff Jarrett and his better half @KarenJarrett surprisingly appeared on the live, TNA Impact Wrestling TV show Wednesday night on Destination America. Interesting development that has many speculating as to what is up. Here’s what my experience tells me…there is more to this matter than Jeff competing on Sunday’s tepidly promoted TNA PPV and the opportunity to give Global Force Wrestling a nice bump to the TV audience that watches the hard to find network that many wrestling fans have no access to in the first place.
Looking at the bigger picture it would seem to be that both TNA and GFW need each other right now. Neither are on top of their game as TNA is rebuilding on a weak network while Jeff’s GFW is just being launched and has no momentum. If the two organizations can reprise an ‘invasion angle’ that can lead to a fresh, major storyline for Wednesday night TV and then bleed over to the GFW live events then it can perhaps become a win-win for both parties.
Another possibility is for the Jarrett’s to go back into business with TNA to the extent of perhaps even buying the brand. If Jeff and my Oklahoma friend and neighbor Toby Keith can get the right business deal then money is no object in buying the maligned brand outright and taking it to a new direction and hitting the re-set button which is what I would do including getting rid of the any thing resembling TNA in the name of the company. Toby and I are good friends and he is a wrestling fan but is foremost a savvy businessman. Toby will not make a bad deal because he doesn’t long to be a wrestling company owner but he does like to make money and people with money love to make “new” money.
Bottom line is that one can almost guarantee that Jeff Jarrett’s appearance on TNA is a helluva lot more about the big picture and not who’s going to compete in the King of the Mountain match Sunday on PPV that I can’t even outline the rules of or a potential ‘invasion angle’ for Impact Wrestling TV.
Stay tuned….this could get interesting.
Other Impact Thoughts: BTW…really good job by Kurt Angle and Matt Hardy in their main event match. Yep, I’m biased as both were two of my signees. Sorry to be so biased but they are still excellent bell to bell talents. Wolves vs. Heels was good too and EC3 is evolving into a great villain but can still get much better at his unique craft. I enjoy watching him work.
On Last Night’s ROH Show: Loved ROH Wednesday night largely because of the utilization of the New Japan Pro Wrestling talent including two of my favorite wrestlers in the world in Nakamura and Okada. Nice job ROH but I like the show better with a two man announce team than three but that’s my personal preference in any promotion. Not a sin or an indictment just an observation.
On Tough Enough’s Return: Watched Tough Enough on the USA Network Tuesday night after returning from England and recording some podcast content. It is a 100% reality show and in time I hope that I become attached to some of the participants. No one has jumped off the page at me as being a future WWE Superstar but it’s way too early for that to occur. Hopefully, the TV ratings will increase and that is largely dependent on how well the show is promoted on RAW and if a couple of characters can get ‘hot.’ Again, it’s way too early to even guess if any one on the ‘cast’ will ever headline a Wrestlemania but one never knows.
