Lashley was awesome when he had MVP talking for him. But I agree he lacks the mic skills to be the top draw withour a manager.
And I love how TNA does their backstage work. They have realism to it. WWE pretends that there are invisible cameras just sitting all around the backstage area. TNA has the wrestlers acknowledge the camera crew, and makes it seem like the heels actually have to be careful to avoid having their plans and schemes recorded.
