Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
The predictions contest is now closed so no more please, and the PPV will be posted sometime tomorrow. Here are some pre-PPV notes...
With Destination X twenty-four hours away, not much can be said about potential results for the event. The feud between Mr. Anderson and Sting is expected to continue until Lockdown next month so that could indicate a Sting victory at the PPV, and sources say that neither Eric Bischoff or Hulk Hogan will be turning heel, especially with TNA still benefiting from Hogan's popularity so a heel turn for him just three months since his debut is almost entirely out of the question. As for Bischoff, he could turn heel some time in the Summer to go against Hogan but the plans are always changing. No drastic changes are expected to occur at the Pay-Per-View but apparently there is going to be a heel turn, with many speculating that it could be either Hernandez or Matt Morgan, which seems the most likely option. Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam appear to be the front-runners to win the #1 Contender's Four Corners Match as TNA management want a big match to headline Lockdown and Desmond Wolfe and Kurt Angle can't give that with AJ Styles, as Wolfe's stock hasn't risen high enough so far and Angle has already had encounters with Styles. Plus, if Hardy or Van Dam win then their match on Impact will have the TNA World Heavyweight Championship opportunity on the line so that would spice up the match a little bit.
The roster is expected to change significantly over the course of the Summer, and with some of the 2010 World X Cup participants expected to sign permanent deals with TNA after the tournament concludes at Victory Road in July, a few veterans could be heading out of the squared circle. Mick Foley is set to retire after Destination X, Jeff Jarrett will allegedly take time off in the Summer as will Sting and Kevin Nash could retire as well. Team 3D's future is uncertain, as they aren't getting any younger but they can help to put over numerous tag teams with their illustrious past. Sacrifice, which takes place in May, could be Jarrett and Nash's last matches if they are even on the card and Sting should be gone by Slammiversary. It was reported a few weeks ago that Foley could become a commentator, and speculation suggests that 'The Hardcore Legend' will replace Taz at the announce table on Impact to partner Mike Tenay.
Word is going around that a big angle will begin in the Summer, possibly involving a stable. It is not known whether a new group will be formed, or an old group will be re-united, but with the angle set to be big, there aren't many options for re-uniting an old group from TNA's past. With Scott Hall expected to leave TNA after Destination X, the nWo will almost definitely be ruled out, but Ric Flair could possibly re-form the Four Horsemen. The TNA Knockouts will return to Impact the night after Destination X after the airing of the final edition of Drop Dead, but Spike have not replaced it with TNA Xplosion. TNA are expected to look for another network to air Xplosion on, and it is not expected to be on the air until the Summer. The latest edition of Impact scored a 1.1 rating.
