WrestleZone.com is reporting that Booker T was originally scheduled to make the saves for Traci Brooks but management had decided to place Matt Morgan in his place instead. TNA is apparently laying the foundation for Matt Morgan’s in ring debut.
Previously, Vince Russo had been pushing for Matt Morgan to get in the ring however, Jim Cornette and Jeff Jarrett have interceded and are more interested in getting Morgan over on the mic before they showcase his in-ring skills.
TNA has been happy with the feedback from the fans with respect to Matt Morgan as they are seeing a slow build for his debut instead of hot shotting him into his first match and then having him get lost in the shuffle. Just a few months ago, several sites had speculated that Joe would be the first opponent for Morgan seeing his involvement with the Christian/Joe Story line. TNA continued to tease this confrontation at the last set of tapings and the fans responded in kind by chanting “Kill Him” in support of Morgan.
As of this writing, the plans that are in motion right now is to continue to have Morgan work the mic and be built as a huge baby face and then within the next two months have Morgan make his In ring debut at that months PPV.
