TNA never built to that and the sheets never hinted toward that. People fantasy booked BFG and wanted to see Rampage or Tito vs. Angle. It would be stupid of Spike (who owns Bellator) to allow either of those two to be involved in BFG in a wrestling capacity as if either of those guys get hurt...that's the main event of Bellator's debut PPV card.

That was all just speculation, based on the Angle/Rampage staredown.

All of the MMA people we´ve seen in TNA are bellator fighters first and foremost, so the Tito/Rampage match, and the preparations for it, takes precedence over them appearing for TNA.
The fact that this match has been on the books for some time, was a pretty clear tell that they probably wouldn´t show up at BFG.

The main reason they showed up on impact was probably an attempt by spike, at getting more TNA viewers to watch bellator.

The only reason Rampage and Tito were brought in was to hype Bellator on Spike TV

They were pulled from the show because bellator didn't like how physical they were getting prior to the big fight, something along those lines. It's a shame, they were already there for a while

In the end, I believe TNA really is a partner in financing the contracts of these talents; and after the November fight both Rampage and Tito will be back on Impact. If they don't return we can all be sure that TNA never spent a dime on them.

What are they going to do with them? Neither of them can wrestle, Neither of them are big names out of MMA and the MMA fans don't like wrestling and if they do they've probably already come over for Brock rather than Tito or Rampage.

Focus on guys like Sabin, Manik, Ethan not Rampage and Tito.

Neither of them are big names? I will give you both are past there primes but not big names? Hello both are two of the biggest names and figures to ever compete in MMA. One is already in the UFC hall of fame and the other will more then likely be there some day.

I know they will not wrestle at BFG, but if they can make some small appearance it will be a special sweet moment.

Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson really didn't offer anything for TNA despite their name value in MMA. All they really did was promote Bellator which ridiculed and undermined TNA; So I'm glad they're not appearing now and hope that they don't make an appearance at BFG. I really don't want to see another situation like last year with King Mo standing round like a lemon during the Storm/Roode match.

GooD I didn't want those two ass hats even in the company, thanks spike/bellator.

Two prominent guys who don't know how to work and think they're real and wrestling is a joke. No thanks. Bye.

A waste of time and money.

Go have your bellator mma ppv fight and leave me the fuck alone.

Dear Dixie, here is the difference between these guys, and Brock lesnar. Brock lesnar is a fucking wrestler. Was before he even got Into mma. You dumb bitch, with your cash in now on mma obsession.

I hope they never come back. They were only in TNA to hype up their Bellator fight.

Why did They have to be involved in the mem to do that, what's hard about this...

Rampage Jackson shows up as Kurt angle's personal invited guest. Maybe he gets fucked with by Garrett and brisco, angle comes out and helps rampage make the two of them look like the bitches they are.

Tito Ortiz is all butt hurt, citing he refereed two tna main events where was his invite, where was the love, why is he being disrespected. Maybe he gets into a verbal joust with angle.

A few pull aparts, build the heat, announce the bellatorr fight. Play it up as a big announcement. Then announce bellator has pulled them.

To preserve the health of both men, play up the dangers of them possibly having contact whatever.

Done.

could use the fact that angle was going to be in tuf 10
and possibly trained by rampage
if that actaully went throuh angle vs rampage would draw thousands

it could be like joe vs angle at ld 08
