New Executive Director Kurt Angle made it official this past week, and this Thursday will see the TNA World Heavyweight Championship rematch that fans have been waiting for! Lashley will defend his title against the man who he won it from, “Showtime” Eric Young.
What to watch for here is how the dynamic of this match will change from the previous meeting between the two men. With MVP out of power, he can (theoretically) no longer sway the odds of the bout into Lashley’s favor. After a grueling match two weeks ago, it was MVP’s influence that ultimately helped Lashley get the victory.
However, it is important to remember the poor condition of Eric Young this past week on IMPACT. With an injured arm and taking another beatdown at the hands of MVP’s posse, will “Showtime” have enough in the tank or is he a sitting duck, waiting to be be conquered by the man that MVP has labeled “The Destroyer”.
One thing is for sure, these two men have the hearts of champions and will certainly deliver an incredible match for us, the fans, this Thursday on Spike TV!
