Countdown to TNA Genesis
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling





TNA Genesis is just a few hours away and while the storylines have been well developed, you can’t help but get an eerie feeling like this could be the beginning of the end for the company.

Already this year (which is barely underway), TNA has lost distribution in the UK and the broadcast position for Reaction. Speculation abounds that the company will be cutting its PPV schedule down and that it is knee deep in debt; and if that’s the case, then these previews may be fewer and further between.

So while PPVs are still happening, let’s take a look at what TNA has cooked up.


TNA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP #1 CONTENDER MATCH

Ken Anderson vs. Matt Morgan

Though the storyline’s been fairly compelling, I’m still not interested in seeing this match. Everyone remains suspicious of an Anderson turn, which means that a Matt Morgan heel flip is likely to happen. Anderson wins but Morgan beats him down after "for his own good."
TNA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH

Beer Money vs. Motor City Machine Guns

The series between these two was the highlight of 2010 for TNA; but it’s too soon for this to be happening again. This illustrates clearly just how thin TNA’s supposedly rich tag team division really is. I’m betting this feud goes two to three months at least, so we’re likely getting a title change here to kick it off.
X-DIVISION TITLE MATCH

Kazarian vs. Jay Lethal

Lethal as champ is boring. I’m really not sure why TNA lost faith so quickly in Robbie E and Cookie, but I was starting to get into the act. TNA’s trying to turn Immortal into the all-powerful group, and that really doesn’t bode well for the company. Kazarian’s position in the company is lower than it’s been in quite some time. He’ll probably get the belt here.
  MMA EXHIBITION "MATCH"

Jeff Jarrett vs. Kurt Angle
 

Jarrett’s been fantastic in this role and it’s way too early for it to end. Thus, the Angle bout here makes little sense. Still, this should be pretty entertaining up until the obvious guitar finish. DQ end in favour of Kurt.
  TV TITLE MATCH

Douglas Williams vs. AJ Styles
 

AJ seems destined to leave Fortune/Immortal and this will be the fire-starter. Undoubtedly, this will be match of the night and could end up being a Match of the Year candidate. Williams wins.
  MYSTERY MATCH

??? vs. Rob Van Dam
 

The easy pick here would be Rhino, given the storyline that closed out 2010; but a lot of speculation is that Matt Hardy is the mystery opponent. Given TNA’s financial woes, I’m doubting it’s Matt. Regardless, RVD loses.
  GRUDGE MATCH

Ray vs. Devon
 

The story’s being told well, but that doesn’t mean it’s compelling. Ray and Devon fighting does nothing for anyone, and once the storyline plays out, both will be in limbo. I don’t care who wins.
  TNA KNOCKOUTS TITLE MATCH

Mickie James vs. Madison Rayne
 

Too obvious that Mickie takes the belt here.
