Well last time they were talking about a 'major star', it turned out to be Ricky Banderas from WSX (he's going to be Mitchell's new monster).
Only new guy I've heard about possibly coming to TNA is Matt Morgan, but he never held any WWE gold.
As far as I'm concerned, the stuff they do with Borash on TNA is exactly like the stuff they did in ECW with the hotline. They made up a bunch of crap to get you to call in and spend some money listening. TNA is making up a bunch of crap to get you to subscribe to their mobile service.
Actually that was the first barb wire match I saw, got it on DVD...fucking brutal. I knew I was going to get killed for mentioning the Abyss/Sabu match so I even added "I've seen" not to presume I'm an authority on the subject. So sorry to offend Commish and Ben's Bulge.
Banderas vs Abyss will be nothing but a blood fest for a couple months because that is all Banderas knows how to do in matches and it seems Abyss is the only one on the TNA roster willing to do much hardcore.
