      Just be careful not to botch it as usual…

        no it’s okay, it’s Hunico

  • Pozessed

    Austin Aries should be pushed to fill that void AJ Styles will leave when he leaves TNA.

      Ya, he is the only current guy on the roster, besides Jeff Hardy who I think can replace Styles. I don’t if AA can move merchandise but that shouldn’t be a big issue because the dude is very talented.

      • Pozessed

        I’m sure I read an article here saying that Hardy had his last match with TNA the other day, but I think Aries could fill the role of AJ if he is given the ball to run with.

    • raven

      should be but I have a feeling that by jan 6th he’ll drop the title and go back to being wasted and doing nothing

      • Reality

        don’t be that pessimistic, I can’t think of anyone else to take AJ’s place. With Hogan and Bischoff gone, I don’t think they’ll push Hardy down our throat instead of Aries.

          it could be pessimistic or it could be spoilers..
