Impact Wrestling Preview (8/18) – Emergence Night One – TNA World Heavyweight Championship – Moose (c) vs. Trey Miguel
Impact Wrestling has found itself with a quandary now that Moose has elevated the retired TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
It began in what many thought of as a joke, but even when Moose admitted there is no TNA championship or championship committee, he’s proven it otherwise.
He takes the championship seriously and has defended it against Michael Elgin, Hernandez, and other TNA originals.
In fact, he’s insisted on only facing TNA originals and has handed out invitations to face him.
And while the championship may not be considered legitimate, nobody has been able to stop Moose and he’s gaining a following both in and out of the promotion.
Last week on Impact Wrestling, Moose handed Trey Miquel of the Rascalz an invitation.
Of course, Trey had on Suicide’s mask and Moose thought he was the costumed video game character, but it doesn’t matter.
Moose handed him an invitation and he may be stuck facing Trey, and this could be the one mistake that haunts Moose.
Trey is completely motivated to win a championship after he lost in the 5 way match at Slammiversary for the vacant Impact World Championship, and then when he accepted Eddie Edwards’ open invitation.
Trey’s heart and desire is bigger than Moose, and after a few close calls the last couple of weeks, Trey’s drive may be able to overcome Moose’s size and dominance.
Moose loses, keeps the championship
We can see Trey winning this simply because he’s more than due, but we don’t think he will. Or he won’t get the championship.
Moose has been too good, and they’ve been building toward a Moose and EC3 match at some point in the near future.
We think EC3’s focus is on Moose because of the championship, and since this is a match fans really, really want to see, we doubt Moose will lose it.
With that being said, let’s go back to what we said about Trey winning but not getting the championship.
The TNA World Heavyweight Championship has given Moose a purpose, and while he puts his title on the line every week, we don’t think he’d hand it over to Trey.
Trey isn’t a TNA Original, so we don’t see him handing the title over to anyone but a TNA original.
While this sucks for Trey if he doesn’t get the championship, it may be for the best since EC3 wouldn’t be going for him.
Of course, EC3 could just be looking to take out Moose because Moose is the biggest and strongest reminder of EC3’s TNA history.
This is one of their most intriguing storylines, and we can’t wait to see where it goes.
