That Finish

I caught the finish to last night's TNA Victory Road pay-per-view last night and all I can think of are three initials.




I'm not sure whether it was a work (wouldn't bet against it) but what it was was similar to how things were done in World Championship Wrestling.

And we all know how that story ended.

For those that don't follow TNA, here is what went down:

Jeff Hardy was challenging Sting for the world title. Before the match got underway, Eric Bischoff came out to say that he had changed the stipulations. As he was doing this he whispered something to both wrestlers whilst ensuring the microphone was behind his back. The bout started and Sting won within a minute. As Sting was walking up the ramp he was shouting 'I agree' to the crowd who must have been angry at the quick match and were shouting their disapproval.

There are rumours circulating that Jeff Hardy was 'in no condition to perform' and they did this finish on the fly.

It wouldn't surprise me if this information was accurate but - on the other hand - neither would I be shocked to find out that this was a worked finish to get some attention.

Well, TNA did get my attention.

But so did WCW when they pulled stunts like this.
