Which is why we got a screwy ending in that match.... Angle had Sting in the Anklelock, who was pinning Christian with a schoolboy pin. Sting tapped out before the three count and Angle was given the title... It wouldn't surprise me if they vacate the title and have the winner of the King Of The Mountain win the new TNA title... Hopefully it will be Joe.
Agreed, the finish was fucky so all those guys can be seeded into that match and we can have a definite "TNA World Champion".
And Angle winning was probably done to add Kurt's name to the lineage of the NWA title.... Which would mean another notch in Angle's belt.
I don't think so, honestly, the NWA name means nothing at this point and if ECW hadn't tried to build the belt up so they could throw it down and give meaning to their own World title, nobody in this generation would know or care about the NWA. It's all high school gymnasium shows at this point, and people who are marks for that belt think it matters. I think this was purely for TNA to spotlight the new belt, and the fact that they are creating a TNA World belt without really acknowledging the change from the worthless albatross that the NWA name was.
