Check out our weekly power rankings to see who made the most of an entertaining episode of Impact.
5: Mickie James: Not the greatest match in Knockouts history, James still earned the win over the sultry Brooke Tessmacher this week to earn a title shot against the â€œinjuredâ€ Velvet Sky. While the Knockouts division is stocked to the brim with talent, things have a hit a bit of a lull as of late. James is a damn good worker and a series of matches with Sky could change things. Even though weâ€™d much rather have her be the first â€œold ladyâ€ in the Aces and Eights, just having her in the ring is a good thing.
4: Petey Williams: Although he didnâ€™t get the win, Williams hit all of his moves with precision and style. From his signature Russian Leg Sweep to the Canadian Destroyer, heâ€™s the flashback performer the X-Division needs. This guy is still just as talented as he was six years ago. A prolonged feud with Kenny King could be great for the X-Division.
3: Bobby Roode/Austin Aries/Christopher Daniels and Frank Kazarian: Who would have thought that two other tag teams besides the champions would be this entertaining? The promo these guys cut this week was hilarious. Simply put, if TNA had a shred of common sense, one of these teams would be champion, this way a real feud between Roode/Aries and Bad Influence could take place. While Hernandez and Chavo Guerrero can work, they have zero charisma.
2: AJ Styles: This was definitely not your typical AJ Styles match. No high-flying, no spots. More brawling than anything else, Styles beat James Storm with an intriguing Knee-Lock submission. Styles is definitely a different animal this time around.
1: The Aces and Eights: The gang was dominant in promo and in the ring. Even the B-team members in DOC, Knox, Garrett Bischoff and Wes Brisco had their moments this week. At this point, it looks like the gangâ€™s reign of terror is just beginning.
