You know youre in the presence of greatness when the reigning heavyweight champion of your wrestling promotion is playing second banana to a couple of old dogs. No offense, A.J. Styles, but Hulk Hogan
and Ric Flair
are the big draw at TNA Lockdown 2010
. Peoples favorite Mick Foley, Kevin Nash, Kurt Angle and his Olympic gold medal, theyre all just the wrestling equivalent amuse-bouche that would be tater tots to Flairs 56-ounce steak and Hogans 24-inch pythons. Can they even fight? Will their doctors allow them to fight? Hope, like an Irish whip off the ropes right back into a huge elbow, springs eternal. TNA Lockdown 2010 goes down at 7 p.m. at the Family Arena (2002 Arena Parkway, St. Charles; 636-896-4200 or www.familyarena.com
), and tickets are $26 to $156.
