Note: The Aces and Eights vs. Main Event Mafia match is delayed until the August 22 IMPACT
Best Case Scenario: Jeremy Borash establishes early on the live show that this match has been rescheduled to prevent confusion and provides an appropriate, kayfabe reason for the delay.
Worst Case Scenario: Ken Anderson cuts a “Where is Kurt Angle?” promo, tastelessly hinting at his rehab stint. Angle then appears backstage, beats up the Aces & Eights, and declares his return to not only be real, but furthermore “damn real.”
Dave Says: Those on the internet prognosticating on the “Death of TNA” will surely make much of this match being pushed back. However, if TNA’s plans were spoiled by Kurt Angle’s personal problems, it’s actually laudable that they are taking time to reset and rebook the match in a way that makes sense with the cast of characters at hand.
