    Default Why is Buff Bagwell not in TNA yet?

    Just why?

    Awesome character, decent enough ring skills, great on the mic, still young enough for one last run, bad-ass top-hats..?

    Didn't he get into a bad accident recently?

    Around about this time last year, but he's fully recovered and is back on the indy circuit.

    I expect someone to come up with.. Well he was an asshole backstage. That's never really stopped TNA hiring anyone before.

    Found this great recent interview from him.

    Because he was never really that good beyond the goofy grin?

    Because he sucks. He wasn't very talented in his prime, IMO. The guy has to be getting on now, so no need for TNA to bring him in at all. He wouldn't offer anything to the company, IMO.

    He was no worse than an average in ring performer.. That made up for it in part with his charisma and mic skills.

    TNA has took on far worse.. Far FAR worse.

    There must be some other reason as to why he never got a shot outside of a minor appearance as Stings 'mystery partner' years back.

    TNA has absolutely no need for Buff Bagwell whatsoever. They have enough talent as it is and I'd rather they focus on that talent than bring in some washed-up has-been who always thought he was far better than he actually was.

    In that interview I posted above he seemed to know his station, didn't seem to have an ego at all. Maybe its disappeared after a decade of having to work the indy's?

    I'd like to see Buff in TNA, but I'm sure the interwebz would not like it.

    I'm pretty sure the reason we haven't seen Buff Bagwell in TNA again has something to do with Eric Bischoff and maybe Hulk Hogan. I mean, those guys did work with him when he was at the peak of being an asshole.

    Anyways, I still think they should at least bring him in for the whole GutCheck thing. His story would make for some compelling TV.

    Buff Bagwell barely had anything to offer wrestling 13 years ago. He sure as fuck has nothing to offer now.

    No idea where all the Buff hate is coming from. The guy was decent in the ring. If TNA can hire the fucking Nasty Boys, they should hire Buff. I would've loved to see him around when Steiner was there.

    Neither do I.

    He really wasn't that bad, these internet myths just grow and grow.

    TNA has enough talent as it is. They don't need any more, and bringing in Bagwell would only be at the expense of another member of the roster. Why bother when he would bring nothing in terms of ratings, merchandise or significant talent? Literally the only reason to bring him back is nostalgia, and I think TNA has indulged in that enough already.

    Nostalgia is often a good enough reason for a lot of fans, though.

    I would say give him a try. I don't think he was that bad. I never seen him outside of WCW but thought he was ok.

    Can't be that awful if there are others agreeing with me.

    Which is why people were asking why he isn't with TNA yet.

    He's not in TNA because he's delusional and pissed off a few people:

    Quote Originally Posted by Ewrestlingnews View Post
    -- Buff Bagwell recently did an interview with the 4th & Pain podcast and addressed the interview a few months ago about him saying that he was in talks with TNA:

    "Let me stop you right there and clarify everything that some have said that I said. There has never been one interview that anybody can play or say that I spoke to Eric Bischoff. I want to clarify that and say it again. I to this day have not spoken to Eric Bischoff. So that rumor got out. It wasn't true, I didn't say it. It's actually hurt me some. I have never spoken to him, I have not spoken to him. There is no recording of me saying it because I have never said it. Sting called me and asked if I had said that and I said no. Anyway it got back to him (Bischoff) and I never said it."

    No recording, huh Buff? You ddin't say it? Are you SURE about that?! Continue reading ......

    Eric Bischoff replied to Buff's comments with the following tweet: "FYI, havent had a conversation with Marc Bagwell in 15 years or more. Not sure what conversations he "thinks" hes had with me."

    In January on the ShiningWizard Podcast, Buff Bagwell stated the following:

    "Me and Eric are talking. Sting wants me to come down there and work for TNA. So we are in talks, we are waiting for me to get back to 100%. We are about 2 weeks out. I just spoke to Sting yesterday. So Eric is gonna bring me down and talk to me and just see what happens, so I am in the mix with maybe going back to TNA now."
    I don't know if that video earlier in the thread covered it, but I didn't want to watch all that.

    Mystery solved.

    I'm pretty sure after a couple of shows the nostalgia would quickly fade and nobody would give a shit about Buff.

    TNA is going in a good direction right now, amazing that there are people wanting to drag it back into the bad old days of hiring old WCW-has-beens. Let the company grow for goodness sake.

    How would bringing in the Stuff drag TNA down? Especially if they just used him as enhancement talent.
