TNA Says: Six Man Tag Team Match: World Tag Team Champions James Storm and Gunner and X Division Champion Chris Sabin vs. Bobby Roode, Austin Aries and Kenny King
Best Case Scenario: These guys have a good, long, fundamentally sound six-man tag ala The Shield. Storm is protected heavily, but gets in one meaningful spot where he doesn’t need to move around much. Sabin does a nice long sell, ultimately setting up hot offense for both himself and Gunner. Roode, Aries, and King all take turns beating down Sabin, then get bounced around by the good guys. (Seriously, as I’m writing this, I’m trying to think of a better “bump-taking heel” team that TNA could put together without including members of Bad Influence.)
Worst Case Scenario: The match doesn’t get the time that it deserves, going less than ten minutes. James Storm does too much, worsening his clearly nagging injuries. Gunner is put in a position where he has to sell more than he should at this point in his build. Kenny King kicks someone’s head off
Dave Says: I’m not a huge Teddy Long fan, but, playa, if you were going to put together three upper-midcard babyfaces and three upper-midcard heels in TNA, these are the guys to go with.
