TNA’s “#August1Warning” Mystery-Man Revealed At Impact Wrestling

Posted by Matt Boone August 2, 2013 6 Comments

It was revealed on Thursday’s edition of TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV that the mystery-man behind the “#August1Warning” messages on YouTube and Twitter throughout the past week was none other than UFC Hall Of Famer and current Bellator MMA fighter, Tito Ortiz.

Ortiz was revealed to be the surprise for Bellator during their show on Spike TV on Wednesday, as it was announced that he would make his debut for the mixed-martial-arts promotion on pay-per-view on November 2nd against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, another MMA legend who will be making his fighting debut with the promotion.

The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion came out during the main event segment on Thursday’s Impact Wrestling, as the Main Event Mafia and the Aces & 8’s were in the middle of a stare down. The two factions had just made the announcement that whoever gets pinned in their five-on-five man match at the upcoming “Hardcore Justice” show on August 15th would be forced to leave TNA “for good.”

After the announcement, Tito Ortiz came out as the surprise mystery-man. He stood on the ramp and stared in the ring, where Rampage was glaring back at him. The show went off the air with the announcers selling the reveal and plugging next week’s Impact Wrestling show on Spike TV.

      I can’t believe I watched impact for this. This was a joke, Tito was great in his hay day but that was in UFC/MMA this is professional wrestling. Come on man, even though I’m not a big fan of him but John Morrison would of surprised me tonight. Big big letdown.

      Doesn’t this devalue the actual fight Ortiz & Jackson are having in November? It’s fair to assume they will feud on TNA (which is scripted) and then fight for real in Bellator? That will only make Bellator look bad in my opinion…..

      That and the reveal was lame as hell, and really added nothing to the show in the end…
