TNA Main Event Picture
One Step Up

Bobby RoodeThursday's edition of Impact Wrestling featured a six-man main event tag match. Bully Ray, Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode took on Abyss, James Storm and Jeff Hardy. If you take Abyss out of the equation (still doesn't do it for me, never has), it's a pretty great group of guys.

Jeff Hardy's over and his program with Roode should only help the current Champion. Bully Ray has come a LONG way to get himself over as an individual and I truly feel he's there now. Kurt Angle vs James Storm is the best thing going in TNA, in my opinion.

Count them – one, two, three TNA originals in the main event picture. Plus, Angle, Hardy and Bully Ray are all guys that feel like TNA superstars now and have lost that "WWE castoff" stinch.

It was an encouraging thing to see and although I'm about to give TNA a step down in the next part of this feature, I highly recommend giving them a chance on Thursday nights.
