TNA is putting two big storylines into play at Thursday's "Whole F'n Show" iMPACT! special. One is an EV2.0 vs. TNA feud and the other involves the TNA World Title.
TNA is planning to carry out the ECW vs. TNA feud to Bound for Glory in October. TNA management is reportedly very happy with the ECW feel right now and one of the main reasons are the strong reactions in the Impact Zone during the Hardcore Justice PPV.
The other main storyline will revolve around TNA stripping Rob Van Dam of the TNA World Title. TNA will be setting up a tournament leading to the No Surrender PPV in September to crown a new champion. The storyline explanation will be that Abyss took out RVD, who will be "too injured" to continue as champion, leading to TNA stripping him of the title. The angle is expected to play out at the end of Thursday's iMPACT!.
TNA tapes the Thursday, August 19 episode of iMPACT! tonight in Orlando. The tournament will begin as follow up on RVD's injury angle.
