Powell’s POV: The TNA Title match and Rayne’s involvement in the gauntlet match were announced on last night’s Impact television show. Impact has been playing up the possibility of at least one former world champion appearing on the show and in the mystery person slot in the main event. Sting, Kurt Angle, James Storm, and Bully Ray were among the teased possibilities. Plus, the company continues to tease the possibility of wrestlers appearing who were cut by WWE back in March.
