Wow. Unexpected Andrew Thompson heel turn. Never saw it coming. Just to clarify: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is in no way ‘ass’. It is, in fact, awesome.

Now for a actual wrestling question: Was the entire reason to make the TNA belt ‘official’ just so Kenny can have another belt?

I mean, I understood making it a real title IF they wanted to have a ‘main’ title for the show after Kenny beats Swann. Moose is the de facto ‘main’ champ while Kenny is away. Lame, but I understood. I also understood if they wanted to get rid of the TNA belt, but wanted to get something out of it. Unifying the titles instead of it just disappearing one week.

But it now seems like it was done just so Kenny can get closer to the Ultimo Dragon photo. Not a fan.
