So with RVD's latest interview in the Sun it seems he is quite open to returning full time or at least more interested then before now that his wife has beat her illness. Although RVD is setting quite steep demands I think TNA could provide them. Ad to that the outside possibility of Jeff Hardy joining TNA would have a main 6 of AJ Styles, Daniels, Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle, RVD, Jeff Hardy with Lashley, Wolfe, Morgan and Hernandez as close to main event status.

Even if they only get RVD that is still a stellar top of the card imho.'

It would also provide extra imputus for keeping current E watchers or former wrestling watchers to keep tuning in to TNA if they start watching because of Hogan. Much like when Hall and Nash arrived. Now all they need is a stellar storyline and they are golden. Even without a stellar storyline but just keeping the good form they have been showing of late they could really see growth.

If rvd would join it would be an intresting fit. I don't think he could work the x style any more. His body has broken down over the years but i don't know if i could see him as a main event guy in tna either. I would prefere him putting over guys like styles and daniales and maybe even red and homicide. Guys like hogan and flair if he comes in are not going to build anyone i don't think. They need a guy like rvd who has name crediblity to build up younger guys. I think he is somone that would do it.

If RVD and Jeff Hardy join TNA I think that those two would both win the TNA title within the first year being there to give them a boost to help build the youngs up as bing big stars in the eyes of the causal fans. Those are two names alot of people know. Hogan and flair would be GM's of sort to have big star power on the show without them having to be in matches to bring in the kids parents that know who those two are.

Pure speculation at the moment. RVD can still go btw just go to his website and watch his latest exploits in Europe.

The main event of Turning Point was an awesome match and one of the best I've seen this year. I've only watched that one, heard that Angle vs. Wolfe was really good aswell.

First off, the X Division has been a shell of its former self the past few years, to the point that now there almost isn't a division at all. Secondly, wrestlers that have been in the "bodyguard" role for another wrestler have never overshadowed them. They are in that role to do one of these three things:

1. Job out to everybody (example: Gunner and Murphy)
2. Break into the company (example: Batista) or
3. To make the other wrestler look good (example: Alex Riley)

Name one time when a bodyguard overshadowed the wrestler they were guarding! Until you come up with an example, this discussion is over.

The reason Ezekiel Jackson overshadowed Kendrick is because they were pushing Jackson more than they were pushing Kendrick. Nash didn't overshadow HBK, Nash was just being pushed to the Main Event and the bodyguard thing was just the setup for a fued with HBK. Those aren't examples. At all.

Exactly, so he overshadowed him.

No, because Nash didn't go on to be part of the biggest angle in wrestling ever, while HBK languished on the shelf with injuries.

I can't believe I would say this on TNA but they have their verisons of Austin and Rock right in front of them in Anderson and Pope.

Ken Anderson-feeling scorned by WWE and he wants to prove he doesn't need to be told how to act.

Elijah "Pope" Burke-Really can be one of the many who has the mic skills to be a star and also has a good moveset to do it.

BUT, can TNA produce with both of these guys?

Just because the X-Division has been a shell of it's former self, which is a great commentary on how it's been handled, doesn't mean TNA can't try and out some steam behind it. And even if examples have been shown of bodyguard's overshadowing their clients hadn't been give, even if it had never happened before is no reason to think it couldn't happen at all. Especially when the potential combo is 6ft 9 Isis guarding 5ft 6Amazing Red. Seriously, does anyone think she wouldn't overshadow Red?
