According to multiple reports and pwinsider.com, Bully Ray is set to return full time to TNA as early as tonights tapings.
If this is indeed true, was a full time return to WWE just wishful thinking on Team 3d part? Bully spent months heavily hyping a possible return on social media. Was it simply a tactic to get TNA to cave in to a full time contract? Is this a way for TNA to please Destination America in bringing back a major name? http://pwinsider.com/article/94677/big-tna-spoiler.html?p=1
I think it was more Bully Ray campaigning for months to go back to WWE, and when they brought him in at Royal Rumble and had the idea that he was just the same guy as he was in 2001, it pretty much killed his desire. Can't blame him, clearly there was no future in him as a nostalgia act for WWE and really he never should have left his cushy position in TNA in the first place. I think it was really a huge wake-up call for the TNA guys as well, showing exactly what WWE thinks of them in general. Which is to say, absolutely nothing. Much like Sting, anything you do there might as well not exist.
