TNA vs. WWE Supercard: Could it happen?
by Tom G of Gerweck.net
Growing up, one of my favorite wrestling magazines was “Wrestling Superstars.” Looking back there isn’t much I can tell you about the difference between the so-called “Apter mags,” however “Superstars” standsout because 1) it didn’t come out every month (which made it seem more special) and 2) each issue featured a “dream match,” a special article where one of the writer’s would tell and imaginary tale (well, perhaps the entire magazine was imaginary) that most often set-up a match between stars of two different promotions. Seeing that there has been some talk of a TNA vs. WWE Supercard (by TNA folks, and less likely to happen then Undertaker losing at Wrestlemania) I’ve decided to present my scenario for how such an event might take place.
Get the tables….. LEGENDS OF THE RING Goes “3P”!
Statistically the most successful tag team in wrestling history makes their long overdue debut to LOTR. Bully Ray and Devon – FKA “Team 3D” and “The Dudley Boys” and now collectively part of TNA’s Aces and Eights’s faction head their way to LOTR on June 8th in Monroe NJ. Specific time for the signing will be announced soon. It will fall between regular convention hours.
Okay so I must admit that I have hoped for a while now that TNA would take the necessary steps to more or less fill the void of WCW and the void of Nitro. But I’ve come to the realization that the people running TNA simply don’t know what it takes to be a force in the Wrestling industry (WWE knew but has forgotten about 12 years ago). TNA much like WWE doesn’t know how to move on from past methods that worked and current methods that have not worked. What wrestling needs is a culture change, much like the one that occurred in 1996. And NO I don’t mean Hogan turning heel and forming the nWo. The culture change began earlier in the year when ECW really got heated up with talents like Raven, Tommy Dreamer, and Shane Douglas through various angles.
LordsofPain.net reporter Michael Bluth writes that TNA star Bully Ray recently appeared on Sam Roberts’ Sirius XM satellite radio show and spoke about being initiated in WWE by JBL, Ron Simmons and Vince McMahon. “When me and Devon first got to WWE, they thought that they were going to have a real problem with us because there was another tag team that had come in from ECW that left a real bad taste in people’s mouth and they were The Public Enemy… They went there and they had really, really bad attitudes…
