What’s interesting about Rampage’s debut in TNA is that even when he’s promoting in the UFC, he comes across as the real deal. Now, it’s been quite a while since he’s fought like the real deal. But his short interaction with Kurt Angle came across as hokey to me. I’m not sure what’s different about promoting in the UFC and being inside of a wrestling ring, but even being in there with Kurt Angle didn’t really help Rampage.
I’m still intrigued though and it might be the only thing that can get me to tune into Impact wrestling.
