Dixie Carter and MVP come to the ring for their ‘summit’. Dixie puts Magnus over as being a champion with dignity, and says they should stick together. Dixie talks about what a great job she’s done so far and wants to talk about new ideas, but MVP stops her and says she has some ideas of his own. MVP says he’s discovered they only agree to disagree, and her mismanagement has nearly crippled this company by making it an uneven playing field. He says he won’t stand idly and her reign of terror is over, so he will take any action to show her that the party is over.

JPOV: Lackluster show in my opinion. Too much Dixie Carter on the screen and too many in ring promos tonight. I enjoy the Monster Ball Match with Eric Young and Abyss. This MVP investor is not going to work in my opinion. There so much potential with this company with the roster they have. The focus is on WWE mid carders that got fired and if they expect that they are going to bring in revenue, its not going to happen.

Latest WTF Moment in TNA Wrestling as Returning Former Champ Revealed

There have been many moments in TNA Wrestling history that have left many people befuddled and confused over the years.  Choose between booking decisions, strange gimmick matches and especially on big promises coming up flat.

Here is an example of the latter of those choices.

On Tuesday, TNA President Dixie Cater shot a video saying that a former world title holder was returning “home” to Impact Wrestling this Thursday night in Cincinnati.

All of us fool hearted suckers on the Internet fell for it hook, line and sinker.  Mission accomplished TNA.  People online were speculating who it could be.  Ken Shamrock?  Maybe Raven?  How about Ric Flair?  Hulk Hogan”  Did he re-sign?

Even Steve and I discussed it on our Tuesday podcast wondering who exactly TNA was bringing back fold.  Some big name that would bring viewers to Impact Wrestling even for one night.

Dixie later tweeting that if a tweet of hers got 150 retweets she would reveal this mystery person that was making the big return.  That was no problem as she got the 150 retweets.  As promised, she gave up the name of the former champ coming home in the video below.  Pay close attention to the look to the reaction from both Jeremy Borash and Dave Lagana.

Yep, that’s right – the big reveal is former TNA tag-team champion and current Cincinnati Bengals player Adam “Pacman” Jones!  Whoop-ed-e-do!

Of course it was.  We all should have known better.  And Dixie is just being that crooked woman running the people that people love to hate.  She’s a heel folks!  And she got us.

Borash and Lagana weren’t the only ones to have a confused look when they found out it was Pacman “make in rain all up in here” Jones as the mystery man.  Here is the reaction from others once they saw the big reveal.
