My thoughts are unwavering regarding Chris Sabin being the top candidate for Bully Ray's TNA World Championship out of the X Division. Aries has proven that he has what it takes to be in the main event, and pushing Sabin in this manner is far-too rushed. Sabin's crowd reaction when he came back was surprisingly low, but has started to pick up a bit. Instead of derailing any momentum gained by having him both cash in his X Division title and lose to Bully Ray, TNA should have planned this earlier in the year to garner enough steam for Sabin, as supposed to wrestling triple threat matches every week.
The only good thing that can come out of this for Sabin is a title win, followed by a quick loss to appropriately build up for Bound for Glory—because Sabin will not headline the biggest TNA PPV of the year as the top guy by any means. Even this scenario is wishful thinking for all the die-hard Chris Sabin fans, to say the least.
"Rampage" Jackson chosen as the newest member of the Main Event Mafia was an absolute monstrosity. He has absolutely no reason to be in that group at this time. He has not even honed in any kind of skills in the wrestling business, and putting him in this position was grossly premature. He should be in OVW, acuminating his wrestling craft, eventually being called up to the main roster. I am not going to totally dismiss him as a wrestler, because both Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock had successful pro wrestling careers post-MMA. However, hopefully we don't see him on the same list as Tank Abbott, whose pro wrestling career was a sheer debacle.
What are your thoughts of "Rampage" Jackson in the Main Event Mafia? Sound off below.
