At long last, after many rumors of him one day appearing at a WWE event, the UFC's Tito Ortiz is set to debut in some fashion for TNA at their next PPV - so says Joey Styles, care of

"TNA has signed Tito Ortiz, one of the most controversial names in the mixed martial arts world, to appear at the Hard Justice pay-per-view event scheduled for May 15.

Dusty Rhodes is expected to make the announcement tonight at the iMPACT tapings and will explain Ortiz' involvement on the broadcast set to air this Friday."

For fans of the UFC and MMA, this will at least spark some interest in TNA. We'll find out this week what his role and purpose will be.

Take the plunge. Step into liquid.

He'll be the special guest referee. AJ Styles is getting the title shot, due to his win over Abyss in the #1 contenders match at Lockdown.

The only thing controversial about him is that people still think he's a top-tier fighter despite the fact that the only guys he can beat nowadays are washed-up hasbeens like Shamrock or green newbies like Coté.

However, Ortiz has good personality and fit well in wrestling. Despite that, I don't see how it will attract more buys for TNA.

I'd agree with the above post in that I don't see how it'll get TNA any kind of increased buys. The only people I think it would create a buzz with are Tito fans, provided they aren't in the category of hardcore MMA fans who hate pro wrestling and it's theatrics. With whatever number is left over after that, how many of them would pay $30 to see a show where Tito isn't even in a real fight?

I think that Edge has performed really well against Angle, Eddy etc, but that tapping to Angle has hurt his credability. Also, I don't think that an Edge/Brock survivor series main event would be that good(still, hasn't stopped the WWE before).
