Well, it finally happened. After months of preparation and slowly moving from commentator to in-ring participant, Frank Trigg had his first official match within the TNA wrestling promotion. Tonight’s match-up took place in Oshawa, Canada and aired live on TNA’s “No Surrender” pay per view. It was billed as an MMA fight of three, five-minute rounds with victory only coming by submission or knockout. Trigg’s opponent was “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles, a TNA superstar that Trigg has had an ongoing feud with ever since Styles attacked him from behind in a parking lot, mistaking him for Kurt Angle.
Trigg comes walking down the runway carrying an American flag, wearing a big grin, and decked out in his traditional MMA shorts with sponsor patches. Once Trigg climbs in the ring, somehow a microphone magically appears and as he begins his monologue it’s obvious his role is the heel. “This country really does suck!” Trigg tells the Canadian crowd. He goes on to call them hicks and dishes out a few more insults. Then Trigg makes sure everyone knows that in the MMA world he is paid to punish his opponents. He says, “What I like to do is hurt alot of people and by the looks of all you hayseeds I’d like to hurt you too.”
