According to F4WOnline.com, TNA is currently trying to secure a match between Rob Van Dam and Jerry Lynn as the main event for the August 8 pay-per view, which is the show with the ECW-reunion theme.
RVD-Lynn is considered one of the best rivalries, in terms of quality matches, in ECW history. It is also one of the last great main event feuds in the original ECW, as the company focus had shifted to RVD after losing the majority of their top stars to either WWE or WCW. This was during the period where they finally got a national television deal on TNN (which later became the Spike TV network). In fact, the first episode of ECW on TNN was a replay of a classic RVD vs. Jerry Lynn match.
This news comes after the report that Tommy Dreamer is personally working on getting original ECW guys to commit to an appearance during the event. If any further information on former ECW stars commit to the show, we’ll have an update here on the site.
TNA “Hard Justice” airs on PPV on August 8 from the TNA Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida.
