TNA Power Rankings: No Turning Point

TNA’s Turning Point Free Pay Per View wasn’t as bad as you would have expected, especially with the end of the run of The Aces and Eights. That doesn’t mean the show sparkled either though. Simply put, this company continues to waste valuable time with stars that have peaked, instead of developing the plethora of guys they have in the back that are more than capable of becoming stars.

Check out our weekly TNA Power Rankings to see who’s in the hunt for the World Heavyweight Title and who deserves more TV time.

5: Magnus: It wasn’t a convincing win by any stretch of the imagination, but plainly put, Magnus cleanly beat Samoa Joe at Turning Point, a former World, TV, X-Division and Tag Team Champion. At this point in his career, it’s a huge win. After his performance in the Bound For Glory series and the end of the Main Event Mafia, the time is now for Magnus.

4: Gail Kim: At Turning Point, Kim continued to prove she’s currently the best female worker in the business. This little open competition however doesn’t cement her the way TNA thought it would. Much like how Ethan Carter III is hated, Kim is losing steam now. She needs legitimate competition.

3: Bobby Roode: After weeks of destroying Kurt Angle, Roode advanced in the World Heavyweight title tournament in a tough match against James Storm. Now in the Semifinals in the tournament, can Roode reclaim the World Title?

2: Mr. Anderson: The man who killed off the Aces and Eights now as some momentum, but don’t expect this feud with him and Bully Ray to end anytime soon. Regardless of the big win, it’s hard to know where the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion goes from here.

1: AJ Styles: This week Styles defended his title in Japan and told Dixie Carter that he is the one and only TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Simply put, Styles needs to get back to TNA and fast. While this little escapade has given him an opportunity to wrestle in several different countries, it’s still a silly gimmick that needs to stop.
