“They” was revealed at last night’s TNA iMPACT tapings (read the full spoilers here) to be a new group consisting of Fortune and other top TNA face stars.
Details are still sketchy but the group apparently consists of Kurt Angle, Mr. Anderson Scott Steiner, Crimson, AJ Styles, Kazarian and Beer Money after Fortune turned on Immortal.
TNA had originally planned for “they” to be The Main Event Mafia with Angle, Steiner, Crimson, Kevin Nash, Booker T and Sting. Those plans were changed when things with Nash and Booker fell through. No word yet on where Sting stands but he was not scheduled for this week’s tapings. Spike TV officials really wanted the Mafia return for sweeps this week.
In related news, after advertising his return for two weeks, Hulk Hogan did not make his return at last night’s TNA tapings. Ric Flair also wasn’t in the building but it’s since been revealed that he is suffering from an injury and is scheduled for tonight’s tapings. There was a backstage segment with Beer Money where they said the last time they saw Flair he was drunk in a bar in Ireland.
