Re: TNA is the best thing going in WWE

I'am not surprised they all have well rounded qualities, nobody that watched TNA from 2005-2012 should be surprised either. They were corner stones in what used to be a watchable alternative wrestling show to WWE. They know how to work a main event level program after working with the likes of Sting, Angle, Nash, Booker T, Steiner etc, although Styles and Joe should probably have been front and centre more often when these kind of guys were brought in.

Kazarian and Daniels tag team would be great in NXT I reckon, surprised that hasn't happened despite Daniels age.

Agreed.

I'd say it's only a matter of time before EC3 gets the call.

Re: TNA is the best thing going in WWE

It's hard to say TNA is the best thing going in WWE though because lots of the great people that came from somewhere other than the WWE didn't go through TNA. AJ Styles should be excluded for this because he's a hybrid of TNA fame and Japanese fame. You can call AJ a TNA guy just much as you can call him a Japanese guy. However, with regards to your OP, most of the outsiders fall into one of two categories, from TNA or from all over the world. And when I say those two categories it's meant as to where they got over. So you're going to say that Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode and Austin Aries are more valuable than Finn Balor, Kevin Owens or Seth Rollins? I personally don't think so.

You can say what you want about the WWE poaching talent, but I'm very very happy to see the WWE give up the belief that someone has to be home grown to succeed in the WWE. Sure Vince and Co. are totally biased to their own guys, but people that became stars on their own are still given tremendous opportunities. AJ Styles is the prime example of this.

Re: TNA is the best thing going in WWE

lmao I was thinking of something along the same lines last night and was thinking of doing a thread. I would not say WWE being carried but it is interesting how many former TNA talent are getting good or decent pushes in WWE.

AJ Styles
Samoa Joe
Austin Aries
Bobby Roode
Eric Young
TJ Perkins

plus talent that had been in WWE before but were in TNA before returning home

Luke Gallows
Mickie James

Not bad for a small company that many people look down on.

AJ Styles is/was Mr. TNA. Who's more synonymous with TNA besides him other than Jeff Jarrett?

He's been other places but he was the TNA guy.

Nothing wrong with WWE taking these talents but it is refreshing, after years of irrational WWE loyalists bashing anyone just for liking TNA, they are finally starting to understand/appreciate why some people enjoyed the alternative. And that is guys like Styles/Joe/Aries/Roode/Angle/exc. It was awesome being able to see some of the work these guys put in.

Re: TNA is the best thing going in WWE

But I always wonder is Triple H or Vince responsible for this ?

Too bad TNA vs WWE feud wouldn't happen at some point even tho TNA would get buried like WCW was.

Re: TNA is the best thing going in WWE

The problem with TNA is that there's no buzz around it. Which is a damn shame, because they have a decent roster. The wrestling / storylines are also far superior to anything that WWE is doing at the moment.

Re: TNA is the best thing going in WWE

This is a loss for TNA because they had these stars and couldn't capitalize off it

Now there on a shitty network hanging on by a thread
