Re: So...AJ vs Magnus
I was pretty sure aj was gone. Now im confident the whole thing is a very clever work. Even though it's tna, and theyre very obviously most often clueless, or were under bitch and hogan anyway, theres no reason in hell to sell aj as that much of a proper badass right before your 'ppv show' unless aj's planned to make a surprise appearance. It's very likely that i'm wrong, but from what i just saw, aj's very clearly cemented as the only credible face of the company going forward. Styles, to me looks like the new 'against all odds' guy no matter how i look at this...
It was aj vs a locker room full of heels that only just barely beat him to keep a title on magnus who, if aj is really gone, has absolutely no one to fight against...too much interference to be a match for the ages, but it was entertaining enough to get me watching regularly again, when, honestly, the only reason i tuned in tonight was to say goodbye to aj.
