TNA Impact Wrestling Power Rankings: The Greatest Who Ever Lived

At this point in their history, TNA is like the puppy that can’t stop peeing on the carpet. Regardless of all the screaming, yelling and beatings, TNA will never stop dropping the ball creatively.

Luckily, there’s never been a problem with the in-ring product and this week, there were some phenomenal matches.

Check out our weekly TNA Impact Wrestling Power Rankings to see who rocked the ring the hardest.

5: Bobby Roode: The former TNA Champion promised “it pays to be rude” this week on Impact and after he broke a glass bottle over Hernandez’s head for his first win in the Bound for Glory Series, he proved it. Say what you want about his lack of charisma, but Roode is entertaining in the ring and is a threat to whoever holds the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

4: AJ Styles: After a fantastic match last week on Impact against Jeff Hardy, Styles and Austin Aries tore the house down. Featuring great technical wrestling, some spots and plenty of strikes, Styles is beginning to come into his own again.

3: The Main Event Mafia/Aces and Eights: They got the last segment of the show, but were out-shined by the arrival of Tito Ortiz. Both of these groups are losing ground, quickly.

2: Chris Sabin: Not his best match on Impact, but Sabin took care of Manik, the X-Division Champion and had enough gas left to ensure that Bully Ray didn’t get a few cheap hits on him. While it’s too early to tell how solid a World Champion Sabin will be, it’s obvious he’s going to let his in-ring performances do most of the talking.

1: Austin Aries: “The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived” continues to cut solid promos and back up all his antics in the ring. This guy needs to get back in the World Title picture and fast. The crowd responds to him perhaps more than any other performer in the company today. His match this week with AJ Styles proves once again that he can perform with anyone.
