TNA Impact Wrestling Power Rankings: The I Love You Edition

Surprise matches, a four-way for the TNA World Heavyweight title and the beginning of a Best-of-Three series for the X-Division title?

To say that this was one of the better episode’s of TNA Impact in months would be a gross understatement.

Check out this week’s TNA Impact Wrestling Power Rankings to see who stood out the most on a stacked card.

Honorable Mention: Samuel Shaw: Two weird words for one creepy bastard- Kata Gatame. This kid has an unusual style to say the least, but he’s got skills. All he needs is a few decent setup moves and more time on the microphone. Working with a pro like Anderson definitely makes him more intriguing, but we’ll see soon how well he can hold his own.

5: Bobby Roode: Putting Bully Ray through one table is a big enough accomplishment, but the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion put Ray through three. With a lack of opponents after the Dixieland angle fallout, Roode will at least be in the ring with one of the company’s most dependable workers in Ray. One of the most underrated workers in the sport today, Roode, alongside Ray, could provide some solid in-ring performances in an upper mid-card role.

4: Kenny King: This guy is hungry and ready to be back in the X-Division mix. Although there’s plenty of talent in the division, King brings a certain type of charisma that is sorely missing. His potential feud with MVP could be very cool, but what could be more exciting is another run for King with the X-Division title.

3: Samoa Joe: He’s all out of excuses. After several different opportunities to come home with the TNA World Heavyweight Title, Joe is still without the gold. Spending most of this match on the outside, he was barely a factor until the end of the match.

2: Eric Young: One of Young’s better matches in months. One of TNA’s most popular and entertaining stars, Young proved this week he can work with the brightest stars in the company. Although he failed to win the title, expect his feud with Abyss to continue and for him to stay in the World Title picture.

1: Magnus: His “I Love You” promo with Abyss was “different,” but it definitely was interesting. With Abyss’ wild and crazy nature, Magnus needed to do whatever he could to get him on his side. With Abyss completely under his control, Magnus is pretty tough to beat right now.
