Was TNA’s decision to put Kurt Angle in their Hall of Fame yet another attempt to keep him from going to WWE, like it was with Sting?
Kurt Angle’s induction into the TNA Hall of Fame means a lot to him and I think that emotion shined through in his acceptance promo at Slammiversary. Absolutely the honor will play into Angle’s decision when his TNA contract is up but it will ultimately come down to money and desire. Angle has repeatedly said he’s a TNA guy but isn’t ruling out WWE. Why does he say that? Because it provides him with more leverage for contract negotiations. The induction certainly doesn’t hurt things if Kurt ends up on the fence but TNA will have to be competitive in terms of the dollar amount they offer him. Let’s also not forget it will depend WWE’s interest and how much they would be willing to pay him.
Doesn’t Jeff Jarrett deserve an induction into the TNA Hall of Fame?
The overwhelming majority of TNA wrestlers feel Jeff Jarrett should have been the inaugural inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame but he’s been snubbed two years in a row. Jarrett wasn’t even at Slammiversary on Sunday night. As I reported prior to the PPV, while the feeling was Jarrett was the “right” inductee, some felt it would be an active performer with more current appeal to the TNA audience. The latter was true with the aforementioned Angle being the second inductee.
Why is Zack Ryder continuously put under in his matches?
Zack Ryder is currently working in WWE as an enhancement talent, better known as a jobber. This is what happens with talent there are not creative plans for and they need someone to come in and “do the honors” to make the other guy look good.
When is Ric Flair going to re-sign with WWE?
There have not been any new developments recently in Ric Flair re-signing with WWE. The feeling seems to be they’ll bring him in on a per shot when they want to use him. Flair is still making regular independent appearances, signing autographs with limited physical involvement. You can read about an appearance he made on Friday night at this link.
