I know Sting vs Taker is the most likely WM match. I would much rather see a one last match HBK vs Sting at Mania. Use all the old wCw footage to really sell to the kids Sting was wCw "guy". Show a bunch of HBK footage from the same time frame showing how he was the "guy" in the WWF at the time. Shawn can treat this match like he did the Hogan match and play a quazi-heel role. Bring back his 1996-97 antics.

Japan's a better bet, I think. All Japan, specifically.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Yep, this would work. I'm pretty sure he'd be an upgrade over Bad Luck Fale as the muscle of the group and he can form an epic team with Karl Anderson, provided Anderson is not moving onto bigger things (which he probably isn't, since it's Devitt who has the next title shot at Okada).
Question for LostInUbe: Has Okada turned? Or does NJPW not care about the heel/heel matchup between Okada and Devitt? I mean I know Okada gets some cheers anyway, but his major defenses have all come against firm babyfaces (Tanahashi, Naito, Makabe, etc.) It seems a little odd.
Matt Morgan worked on AAA's TripleMania last month, which would've been after people in TNA knew he was leaving (and AAA would've been told at as well.) He won his trios match and they left an opening for him to return down the road.
I don't expect it to happen, because AAA talks up every big guy they get from TNA or the US and then never brings them back (or doesn't use them in any useful fashion.) It's conceivable Morgan could be used in AAA's US promotion, should such a thing actually exist at some point.

Morgan probably would be, but Fale's the fourth ranked member of the group, there to get a few wins at first and then do the jobs you don't want Devitt/Anderson/even Tonga to do. There's no point in bringing in Morgan for that role, so you'd be demoting Tonga if you brought Morgan in.

Okada hasn't turned, but he and CHAOS are the relative faces in this feud. Evil guys from the home nation are almost always faces over evil guys from other countries.
Are we sure that Morgan's leaving isn't a work? For the past year his gimmick has been that he's been getting messed with by TNA management.
If this is the end of Matt Morgan (in TNA), I'll miss him, and be disappointed that his character was left with so many things unresolved. Matt Morgan seemed as if he was a guy who they wanted to protect so as to enable him to have big matches later in his career, but who they never wanted to give a big push to until they had secured him in a long term contract.
I tend to agree with all of this. Don and/or Mike mentioned something about how AJ was "much more confident" when Cage wasn't around. Subtle portent, or random blather? Oh, also: BEST LINE OF THE NIGHT: Matt Morgan:
