Original TNA World Title Plans Revealed, 'Eugene' To TNA?, LAX
By Ryan Clark | April 29, 2010 |
» When the talk first started of taking the World Title off AJ Styles, TNA wanted to do it on iMPACT to help with ratings but put the belt back on AJ just a few weeks later and have him hold it until Bound For Glory. When the decision came to put the World Title on Rob Van Dam, several officials were against the idea of putting the belt back on AJ just a few weeks later. It's expected that RVD's World Title reign will be a lengthy one, at least through the Summer.
» TNA officials have had discussions with Nick Dinsmore about coming in to do a character similar to Eugene. However, said talks recently stalled.
» As noted earlier by the WrestlingINC.com website, Homicide has been told that LAX will be put back together when Hernandez returns in around two months. Homicide is said to be skeptical about the news. Both he and Hernandez did not like being broke up in the first place. Regarding Hernandez, it was Dixie Carter's decision to send him to Mexico full-time while he's recovering from the storyline injury. Several TNA officials including Terry Taylor were against sending him to Mexico.
