That's right folks, it appears the rumors are true.

As we all know by now, Dixie Carter began stirring the pot with the following tweet earlier Friday:



Dixie Carter

@TNADixie
On a plane headed to Dallas for the big PPV this weekend. Very excited @Christian4Peeps is joinin us for the night. He's one of my favorites

Since then, impactwrestling.com added Christian's picture to their website along with the tweet. Meanwhile, the WWE.com has removed Christian from all of this weekend's SmackDown events. Even without any confirmation from the man himself, it seems 99.9% possible that Christian will be back with TNA for one night.

Now, since Dixie posted that tweet, many fans have speculated that Christian is slated to be the first inductee to TNA's newly created Hall of Fame.

I, personally, do not feel that is the case, as there have been plenty of wrestlers that have made more of any impact (pun intended) than Christian. Guys like the founder of TNA Jeff Jarrett and his father should obviously get a spot before Christian, as should Sting. Out of those options, Sting's induction would mean more to TNA, as it is something the that the WWE has been after for several years now.

Don't get me wrong, I understand what Christian meant for the company; he was the first WWE star to willingly head to TNA without being future endeavored by the WWE. Not to mention, he has a pretty solid legacy with TNA. However, is he really worthy of being the first inductee to TNA's HOF?

Not likely...

I feel like Christian will prominently be involved in some ceremony to celebrate TNA's 10-year anniversary and that's it. Let's face it, chances are he is not allowed to step into a TNA ring and there is no way Vince McMahon will allow him to get involved in any sort of match. Especially considering he is the current IC champ.

Ultimately, his presence will give TNA a nice buy-rate boost, as hardcore fans will want to see him back with TNA. Other than that, I wouldn't expect too much from his appearance.


So WTF IS GOING ON??? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???

They'll probably just do a segment and/or an interview with him regard TNA's 10th Anniversary. Nothing more. Something in exchange for WWE getting Flair at the HOF this year under contract.

Regardless, anything Christian says, or does while appearing in a TNA event will be watched VERY closely. At the moment, Christian is holding one of the WWE's most prestigious titles and it would be very bad for business if Christian somehow tarnishes that image. I cringe at the thought of Christian destorying the IC title on a TNA event... I know that would never happen, just call it a nightmare.

But Christian has been with the WWE so many years, I think he should be smart and loyal enough to just keep any apperance he has to a thank you, or maybe reflect on some memories.

If it's not an induction it's a nostalgia thing. He certainly isn't wrestling for TNA while under WWE contract, much less as the Intercontinental champion.

How cool would it be though to have WWE and TNA have a constant working relationship and trade talents etc...!?

I'd mark if he had the IC title with him for all the interviews etc.

Seems like a fair trade for TNA at least. Ric Flair appearing at the HoF wouldn't cost them anything really and having Christian appear for them while he's still with the WWE is a great trade-off for them.

I've closed this because there is already a thread about this in the TNA section.
