We called it! We said that a member of the TNA roster would make their appearance outside of a TNA ring! While we thought it would be Bully Ray on the 9th day of the 11th month in this year of 2013 (Is AJ Styles leaving TNA?). We have to admit we were slightly off. It turned out to be Bully Ray.
After the main event of Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore 3 event in Poughkeepsie, New York while Dreamer and Terry Funk celebrated their victory over Lance Storm and Sean Waltman. Something changed, something altered the universe of what we know wrestling to be.
Bully Ray invaded another company. Yes, we’ve seen this occurrence before. We’ve even seen the man now known as Bully Ray do this. But we’ve never seen this!
While invasion gimmicks have always occurred from the start of wrestling. It’s something in this instance we were not expecting. TNA a company struggling to survive invaded a company struggling to begin. That’s unheard of.
We’ve seen the worse invasion situation ever with the whole WCW/ECW invades WWE. Which bombed because we all knew that WWE owned them both.
But this invasion, this one’s different. It’s something that even the dirt sheets didn’t know. Something that no word or talk on the web had caught. Or had we?
I, as stated earlier, predicted something would occur on 11/9/13. Thus I was correct here.
Okay, yes, it’s a stretch.
But this is big for both companies. It makes them the talk of the town. WWE, Ring of Honor, and any other company out there is doing their every day things. TNA and House of Hardcore or changing the scene. This is something out of the box, which is greatly needed in the world of everything’s been done before.
And while I can go on a rant about how TNA has changed greatly in the month since Hulk Hogan’s contract was not renewed. The man had literally quit the company. A fact that no one has reported on. But a situation that has been great for the company.
Now this whole invasion angle is setting up a TNA pay-per-view in the One Night Only series called Old School. Where TNA will hold the taping at the same venue House of Hardcore held their event at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.
While there’s a billion questions about TNA and House of Hardcore working relations one thing is for sure – this is one of the greatest wrestling moments in history.
Sorry for all of you TNA haters, it’s true!
