This is a question I've never seen anyone ask.
So I think I'll ask it, who is the single greatest TNA champion of all time and why?
I will allow the TNA-NWA era to count because TNA's heyday was with that title.

    Kurt


    His first couple of reigns provided us with some of the greatest TNA Wrestling moments of all time.

    Jeff Jarrett
    I went with Jeff Jarrett even though I almost picked Aj..

    Aj a close second and I would of picked him if i aint see Jeff on the list..

    Jeff Jarrett as a heel TNA champion was good for busines for that company.. 🤬 had all the traits of a good heel and was easy to hate. He was a chicken 🤬 heel but would strike when he was at an advantage..

    There was another thread comparing his reign to HHH's reign of terror, they were both good times for wrestling if you ask me.

    Bobby Roode
    I honestly think Roode's time as a heel champion was better and more memorable than all the others. I can't even remember an AJ title run and all of Angle's seem to run together for me.

    Kurt Angle
    Bobby Roode's heel championship run is definitely a modern classic. I'm still mad that it was cut so short during it's peak even though it really put over Austin Aries.

    Bobby Roode
    Bobby Roode. I loved the build-up and story leading up to his reign and how it played out. I was skeptical about the turn against James storm but in the end it turn out great. There was critics on how his reign would play out because he had never been a Main Event talent before but I thought he would excel and that he did. Somehow when he turned his in-ring skills and ability to put good matches improved dramatically. You could tell that he was really hungry to reach the top spot that he reached as a Main Eventer and as the longest reigning World Heavyweight Champion in the companies history. I enjoyed his feuds with Storm, Sting and Aries.

    I stopped watching TNA in early 2013 but he's one of the guys who I saw holding the company in the next couple of years along with Storm, Crimson, Morgan, and Aries.

    Bobby Roode
    Him losing to Aries seemed random to me at the time. Maybe it's because I didn't see what the appeal of dude was but I don't think they should have stopped Roode's momentum.

    Besides I think Beer Money's break up is one of my favorite TNA feuds, it was almost perfect with the exception of Storm never getting the title back from Roode.

    Lashley
    Bobby Lashley is simply the best wrestler on that list. I wish he were TNA champion at an earlier time because he would have gotten more recognition. I don't know why they banned his submission move but he had the 2nd greatest spear under Goldberg.

    My 2nd choice is AJ Styles. His matches against Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe were dope. He adopted the figure four leg lock from Rick Flair and kicked ass with it.

    My 3rd choice was Kurt for obvious reasons. I would've loved to see him in his prime up there with TNA Lashley because WWE Lashley sucked, there's a huge difference.

    My 4th choice is Jeff Jarrett.

    The rest on that list is forgettable.

    Lashley isn't better than Angle let's not get ridiculous here.

    i say bobby roode. aj and kurt were already established and brought credibility, id say christian as well. but roodes reign kept credibility and also elevated him as well, imo.

    Bobby Roode
    I liked Christian as world champion but he was miscast in the feud with Abyss. He doesn't really pull off certain traits, when he turned heel though...it was all go for me.

    Roode is boring.

    Christian cage is boring too.
  • jonojono Right fist = power, left fist = unity Members Posts: 30,280 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Bobby Roode
    They better than Lashley though. Dude literally has no personality whatsoever.
  • BangEm_Bart BangEm_Bart Members Posts: 9,503 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Lashley
    Lashley wasn't a good heel, I give you c that but Roode was the HHH of heels. He rambled and put me to sleep and Lashley was more about whooping ass. Cage has personality but that's cause of his years working with edge and he's a 🤬 wrestler.
  • BangEm_Bart BangEm_Bart Members Posts: 9,503 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Lashley
    When it evened out Lashley never spoke but he wrestled his ass off in some good matches with Jeff Hardy, Angle and whooped Roodes ass.

    I actually really liked Lashley as a heel champ. He was booked very formidably. No nonsense gimmicks and faulty logic. Brought back that traditional ass kicker with a mouth piece element that you don't really see anymore outside of Heyman/Lesnar.

    Kurt Angle is a close second to me. He's TNAs Ric Flair, icon wise.

    Lashley w/ MVP yeah I totally agree. It's where they separated that I kind of had trouble caring about Lashley being the champion.

    I think AJ is better off away from TNA. I am really enjoying AJ in the Bullet Club.
