Hulk screwed Kurt?
Rumors flew on the Internet yesterday that Kurt Angle, who played the role of Hart in the faux drama, was actually quitting TNA to either go to the WWE or focus on movies full time. He was “screwed” out of his title shot by A.J. Styles and Earl Hebner (yes Hebner was the ref in the Hart match, too), and he even spit on Hulk “Vince McMahon” Hogan at the end for punctuation.
Angle also trashed the set out of anger, much like Hart did, but the whole thing was so framed that it was obviously a slap in the face to the WWE. The lingering question is whether Angle will really quit at all, and if he does, whether he will be entrant No. 30 in the Royal Rumble on Jan. 31. (You never know.) In truth, TNA has too many guys to really give everyone a good storyline … where have I heard that before? Um, try WCW.
(Again I say, where is Disco Inferno when you need him? Someone will have to feud with Brian Kendrick.)
As for the nWo guys, X-Pac and Scott Hall were their usual wasted selves, and they were “kicked out” of TNA by former comrade Hogan. Pac and Hall told Kevin Nash to “fix this,” so it will be interesting if the two were brought back just for the big debut or if they have a future on the show. My guess is the latter in some fashion. Lucky us.
Then we have the bloodied Eric Bischoff at the end of IMPACT, telling us that Mick Foley is fired. Interesting. Since we did not see the attack take place, I think there is a chance that Foley was “framed” in some way, shape or form.
That’s all for now, until the Killer Bees or Bushwhackers show up in TNA…
