Matt MorganMatt Morgan – One Step Up

Hulk Hogan put over Matt Morgan recently on Twitter. He said Matt could be the next big thing or something along those lines. High praise! Of course, Hulk also said Austin Aries could be the next Hulk Hogan too, so I've started taking everything he says with a grain of salt.

I've always thought Matt Morgan was capable of much more in this business. He hasn't been given a ton of opportunities to succeed at a real high level, so it's tough to say how far he can really go. Hell, WWE had him stuttering.

TNA, on the other, gets most of the blame. They don't see guys that look like Matt Morgan come through their company very often. Plus, he can work. The fact they haven't utilized him more is rather embarrassing. 

The pairing between Matt Morgan and Joey Ryan has been much better than I anticipated, but I still think it needs to end soon. 2013 could be a good year for Morgan, but not if he's attached to Ryan.

Cut him loose and set him free – I think you'll be happy you did.
