    Big mistake by TNA. I still think Morgan could’ve been their biggest star. That’s IF they ever used him properly. The last little while they were doing pretty well with him. I liked the whole mini feud he had going with Hogan where he was trying to prove himself to Hogan while constantly bad mouthing him and everything he did wrong. He should’ve been more prominently displayed each week on Impact though IMO. Getting beaten by Sting a few weeks back on Impact where he passed out intead of tapping out made him look tough, but if he was so tough he shouldn’t be losing to a 50+ year old Sting. One week he was this unstoppable beast, then you barely see him the next. TNA just doesn’t have a clue how to build someone up. Their roster is too big, and they are trying to use too many people. Yeah the WWE has a big roster, but you don’t see them putting just anyone on Raw. TNA needs to figure out who their top guys are and who they want to use. Instead of giving us stuff like “gut check”, they should start giving us believable angles that we can get interested in utilizing the talent that the fans are interested in following. Morgan was just another victim of how TNA just doesn’t seem to have a good grasp on what good wrestling programming is and what it takes to make it. He’ll go to ROH and get over huge, and WWE will pick him back up and make him a star. That’s if WWE doesn’t grab him up right now.
