SPOILER: TNA scrambles for a new direction in the wake of recent events
Feb 1, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
With the planned return of the Main Event Mafia in the works for weeks, TNA creative was forced to call an audible at last night’s Impact tapings in Orlando, FL. New ideas were quickly drawn up Sunday night once former Main Event Mafia members Kevin Nash and Booker T returned to WWE to be surprise entrants in the Royal Rumble match. Without Sting, Booker T, and Nash, the Mafia was merged with Fortune. There is an internal feeling Kevin Nash screwed them, as TNA was led to the planned return date of the Main Event Mafia. In fact, some now believe Nash did this intentionally to get back at TNA because of the way he felt the company had treated him. There were originally plans for AJ Styles to go babyface, but the fortune turn wasn’t planned until Sunday night.
