According to The Wrestling Observer, there are internal discussions going on in TNA about whether or not Bully Ray would be TNA World Champion material. On one hand, TNA thinks Bully Ray has the best heel gimmick going in wrestling at the moment. However, there is also the age-old mentality that a world champion is normally a classic worker who “looks the part” and can work a traditional style 15-20 minute championship match.
CB’s Slant: I think Bully Ray has done some very solid work over the past year and I would definitely welcome a Bully Ray championship reign with open arms. It also fits into the current storyline of Ray being Roode’s enforcer to a point, but also wanting his own title shot. They could turn Ray face, further isolate Roode as having no real friends anymore, and let them square off at the next PPV.
