Honorable Mention: The Dollhouse: These three women may not ever get completely over in TNA, but Jadeâ€™s use of the Package Piledriver makes her a ton of fun to watch every night. Rebel is also beautiful and has a ton of potential, as does Marti Bell, the Buddy Roberts of the group.Simply put, these three need an opportunity to give fans a real opportunity to love or hate them.
5: Decay: Their continued encounters with Jimmy Havoc are interesting and continue to make them one of the most intriguing elements of Impact Wrestling on Pop TV.
4: Beer Money: Their win over Bam and Eric Young puts them once again in the top their of TNA Tag Teams. Itâ€™s only a matter of time until they get in a feud With the reigning and defending TNA Tag Team Champions, the Wolves, Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards. The only question is whether or not Beer Money is on a farewell tour or if they have a serious run ahead of them.
3: Trevor Lee: Retaining his X-Division title against Tigre Uno at Lockdown, Lee is in a league of his own right now, but hasnâ€™t been given an opportunity to cut promo and tell any stories. The weird faces he makes during matches have Indie written all over them as well. A wonderful performer in terms of in-ring ability, Lee needs a mentor in the ring and a feud that can allow him to grow more and help reestablish the X-Division.
2: Matt Hardy: He retained the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Lockdown thanks to help from Tyrus, Reby and Rockstar Spud. How long can Hardy and his heel tactics keep him champion?
1: Ethan Carter III: He didnâ€™t leave Lockdown with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, but he continues to prove heâ€™s the best face the company has. With Spud now an enemy, whatâ€™s the next step for EC3? Does he take care of his former friend first, or does he keeps his eyes on the title?
