Major Swerve In The Plans To End TNA Bound For Glory – Who It Involves & What The Company Wants You To Believe When The Show Has Ended

The plan headed into the weekend was for AJ Styles to beat Bully Ray for the TNA Championship Sunday night at Bound for Glory and “leave the company” with the title. Basically, TNA wants to capitalize over the uncertainly of his contract situation and are looking to recreate what WWE had with CM Punk at Money in the Bank a couple years ago.

We’re told TNA is hoping to get Styles booked in Japan to “defend the TNA title without the company’s permission.” So far, Keiji Mutoh’s WRESTLE-1 promotion is interested in assisting with the angle but TNA has also reached out to New Japan Pro Wrestling.

I don’t feel like I need to remind most of you but this was the plan headed into the weekend. Booking plans are subject to change at any time and we’re not reporting this is on the final run sheet. We are reporting these were the plans at one point so do not be surprised if they happen. If TNA deviates from this, plans changed over the weekend.

    not suprised they want to recreate what WWE did with Punk. they can’t come up with their own ideas.

      THANK YOU! Like can somebody with a big bank come along and give Vinnie Mac some REAL competition?!

    • John

      99.9% of the storylines in professional wrestling have already been done before and are just rehashed.

      I think we would all agree that WWE did a poor job with the CM Punk storyline when they had him return so soon after “leaving”.. If TNA feel like they can execute the storyline in a better way then good for them.

    Richard with all the negative going on with TNA cancelling tapings and the boys being worried about empty seats do you feel this ppv is critical for them and could play a huge factor on the way they book from here on out and possibly abandon the whole Dixie heel storyline

      Jack, I’m not Richard but I’d like to answer this one. This PPV is absolutely critical for TNA going forward. TNA has had to pull Impact off of the road, has had numerous contract issues and attendance issues, and is now seemingly in distress company wide. Unless they do something huge to turn the company around tonight, then they could only be a few short months away from becoming insolvent.

      Yes, it’s a very important PPV. TNA needs something to revive their fans and their workers.

    Richard, what happen to “freedom of speech”?!?!? We can’t freely post Our opinions anymore?!!? I’m pretty sure it’s this Jesse guy playing “god” deciding what stays & what goes .. That’s total crap!!! I understand getting rid of the “trolls”, but this guy deletes anything he just doesn’t like.
