TNA Says: After a wild and chaotic No Holds Barred main event, Bully Ray is STILL the World Heavyweight Champion – meaning Sting cannot challenge for the title! What will Bully Ray have to say about his win on Thursday? How will Sting react to the major loss? Despite the Aces and Eights taking several hits at Slammiversary, their leader retained the championship AND the power in TNA!
Best Case Scenario: Ray gloats like a self-indulgent jerk, celebrating his tainted victory over Sting. Hulk Hogan (or another top babyface) comes to the stage and talks about how Ray should be ashamed of himself. Ray responds by saying “All that matters is I won, I’m the greatest World Heavyweight Champion of all time, and no one can stop me.”
Worst Case Scenario: Ray goes completely milquetoast and talks about all the respect he has for Sting and what an honor it was to end his run.
Dave Says: I’m trying to think of a situation where it was more necessary for a heel to gloat. Ray ended the main event run THE perennial top star outside of the WWE for the last twenty-five years, and he did so in a completely unfair manner. He needs to act like he beat Antonio Inoki clean in the Tokyo Dome.
