I recently speculated on the future of Bully Ray and Devon and their futures with TNA Impact Wrestling.  Rumors on the web hinted that both might be leaving the company which of course fueled speculation that they were heading to the WWE.

Thanks to Greg DeMarco from the Bleacher Report for posting earlier today that Bully Ray has resigned with Impact for what appears to be a two year deal.  Devon still claim via social media that he's no longer with TNA, despite being the company's TV champion.

Personally, I think Bully Ray has made the right decision.  I think it's fair to say he's becoming a big fish in a small pond.  Going back to the WWE and pairing with Devon again would be a great boost for the tag team division.  But I think it's a move that would have benefited the WWE more so than Bully Ray himself.  He's clearly in the best shape of his career, I enjoy his character now, and I think he'd lose  a lot of that heading back north.

Obviously I don't know what motivated the decision to stay, and six months ago I probably wouldn't have said this (as I was very critical of many TNA decisions) but I'm glad he is staying.  I look forward to seeing the development of his character and actually wouldn't mind seeing him win the Bound for Glory series.

As for Devon, I'm not sure what's next for him.  I'm afraid if he heads to the WWE he'll end up lost in the shuffle.  One thing that has been reported is that he and Bully will continue running their wrestling school in Florida.
