The preview for tonight's TNA card has announced that a surprise "Former World Champion" will take the place of Scott Hall in the main event six-man. I have heard names like Steiner, Goldberg, even STING thrown about, but there is NO way in hell that the Jarretts have the $$$ to procure their services.


So that leaves me with the thought, that if TNA recognizes ECW's legacy of heavyweight champions as "World" title holders, then it leaves me thinking of one man, and that is the recently released Mike Awesome. I don't THINK that the last cuts (Awesome, Meat and the like) have a no-compete clause, although I would have NO idea whether thy do or not.


Thoughts?

Its in Tenn. which means Tommy 'I don't Suck, unless it gets me a World Title' Rich is available. Also, Larryland is a former AWA World Champ, so he could come in to kill another promotion. And remember, it could always be Sabu.

If reports are correct, the released WWE talent were given a "90-day notice", which would mean they are not technically available yet.

Maybe Shane Douglas shut the hell up about Francine and he's going to be the guy.

For that matter, what's Bigelow doing about now?

I seem to remember the press release saying that Syxx-Pac and James "called a good friend" or something to that effect. I guess that really doesn't mean anything, but I think they're trying to make you believe that it's someone bigger than it probably will be.
On a related note, does anyone actually know what the hell happened to Scott Hall? Is he battling demons again? AUSTIN WAS RIGHT! VINCE WAS WRONG! Sorry, wrong thread(s)...

They didn't specify that it was a MALE former world champion, did they?

I'm surprised no one said Shamrock. I just have a feeling it's him. He is the last NWA champ.

He's off in training for an Ultimate Fight next month, so I doubt he would return for one night.

I'm pretty sure it was reported that Mike Awesome either didn't have a no-compete clause or they went ahead and waived it. Frankly, I'll be shocked if it's not him.

I just read on the Observer that the champ that they are referring to "has never appeared on NWA TNA", so I'm wrong. Definitely not Shamrock.

Personally, I hope it is Awesome. TNA is the arena for him. He's bigger than most everyone else in the promotion and will have plenty of people to bump for his moves, which is what got him over in ECW.

I agree that awesome would fit well in TNA. I'd guess it would be either him or Corino.

Awesome is good with the right guy, namely Tanaka or Hayabusa. I think Awesome/Low Ki has huge potential to be as good as those feuds. I guess it depends how short Ki really is. I mean, Tanaka was pretty big in size for a japanese guy, and Awesome towered over him. Maybe Ki is too small and thin to look like he could take on awesome?

Just because nobody else has said it, I'm going to guess Randy Savage. Not that I've ever seen TNA (not even sure if I have access to it if I wanted to see it) or have any idea what Savage's current standing is (though I think I heard he just wants too much money for anybody to bother) but I'm bored.

Damn, all the good ones are taken already. Russo, no. Arquette, no. I've got it. I don't know if it's possible evn, but just for the sake of throwing my hat into the ring, I say that their partner is none other than the MASTER....the RULER....OF THE SQUIRRELS!!

Then again, this could all just be a viscous rumor.

I sure hope it's Curt Hennig.

Not that I'll ever order an NWA PPV, but I think that Curt'd be pretty anticlimactic, therefore funny.

Oh, but Sid would be good. Yeah. Unless he's in the National Softball Playoffs.

You are correct, sir. It WAS Curt Hennig.
