Pretty much the instant that story came out it was shot down. Meltz (wrestlingobserver.com) says he's still under contract, it expires soon, and he is still mulling over his options. No decision has been made by Harris.
Damn! I was really, REALLY hoping for that America's Most Wanted reunion.
Hey, ANYTHING would have been better than another few months of Chris Harris: Whiner and James Storm: Drunken Cowboy. At least Harris goes from one circus to another. Of course, I seriously doubt he'll get any airtime up north.
"Wocka Wocka...who wants to hear a funny-ass joke?"
Well whether Harris is boring on his own or not, he was damn good in AMW and after working so hard for TNA for many years I've got no problem with him going to get a fat paycheck, even if they don't use him.
Although, is it just me or did Harris actually start to look chubby this week? Maybe it was just the outfit but he looked heavier from the waist down to me.
It's no real loss (I always thought Storm had the most potential as a singles star, even when Harris was being pushed down our throats during the Nashville days) but TNA announcing it on their website reminds me of when everyone was reporting Abyss was leaving only for them to secretly re-sign him and show up as a surprise at the next PPV. Not sure why they would go to such lengths for Harris though.
On a related note, his new singles tights are awful. Every time I see him I think he's sporting the DDP rib-tape.

WHAT WORKED: -There was some nice mic work setting up the PPV main event. Joe and Jarrett especially. Samoa Joe did a real nice job laying out his relationship and how he stands vis a vis the rest of the competitors.
