TNA Impact Power Rankings: The Magnus Show

Joe couldn’t beat Magnus, again. But a series of promos from Mike Knox and Kenny King and a damn good three tag-team match made this week’s Impact a decent experience.

Check out our weekly TNA Impact Wrestling Power Rankings to see who’s thriving in the new look TNA.

Honorable Mention: Willow: For the second consecutive week, Willow beat on a member of Dixie Land. A different side of Jeff Hardy, Willow is a tough customer that is not scared to throw some bodies around. With cool music and plenty to be pissed off about, Willow’s push is just beginning.

5: Gunner: He’s a future TNA Champion if the company sticks around long enough for him to get a real push. With wins over a few former TNA Champions already, Gunner is ready for an opportunity to carry some gold. His current feud with James Storm is a waste of his talent, but it always makes for great matches. With Storm’s beating on Gunner and his father this week on Impact, it appears Gunner is looking at a glass ceiling.

4: Gail Kim: Her win over Lei’D Tapa this week was a much-needed one. After loosing the Knockouts title and falling to new Knockout Britney last week, Kim was in desperate need of a change of pace. With the win over Tapa, Kim finally has some momentum and can finally get back in the Knockout title picture. Easily the most talented performer in the division, it’s in TNA’s best interest to give her another push, especially with the less charismatic Madison Rayne as the Knockouts new poster child.

3: Bromans: These guys are annoying and arrogant in the best way possible. Zema Ion is a perfect fit as their ally and together, they make a fun faction. Their win over the Lone Wolves and Tigre Uno and X-Division Champion Senada once again proves that they are the best tag team in the company. With Frank Kazarian and Christopher Daniels off TV for the last few weeks as well, there isn’t another team with nearly as much chemistry.

2: Samoa Joe: After a month of destroying everyone in his path, Joe has fallen to Magnus twice. Interference from Abyss or not, Joe has not been able to reclaim the TNA World Title. With no more rematches left in the cards, what does Joe do now?

1: Magnus: The addition of Abyss has paid heavy dividends already. In just two week, Magnus has managed to hold onto his title twice because of The Monster. With Joe presumably out of the way, who decides to take a run at Abyss and Magnus?
