5 Wrestlers TNA should have kept

These will be in no particular order but TNA has certainly let people walk or fired people who should have been kept. The argument can be made for beyond 5 guys, but we'll keep the list simple.
1. Christian (or Christian Cage): If this list were in order, he would be at the top of the list. WWE held Christian back and once he made his way to TNA, he became a bigger star than WWE could have ever made him, or ever really planned to. He was over with the crowd no matter what he was playing, one of the more talented wrestlers in the biz, and could have easily helped TNA become bigger than it is.
2. Jay Lethal: Being a huge fan of ROH, I don't have a huge problem with this but it would have been better to keep him. Another guy very over with the crowd, still relatively young, especially considering how experienced he is. He was certainly getting better on the mic as he got to be in bigger storylines, and the X division will always need guys like him.
3. Monty Brown: How he left the wrestling biz as a whole is kind of sad, but he was a beast in TNA. One of the better characters TNA had, he had a great amount of charisma, though i'm not sure how far he goes, but he was a great talent in TNA.
4. Low Ki: Another weird wrestling story, I would have liked to have seen TNA keep Low Ki. He's certainly bounced around companies, but is talented as hell. His mic skills are a little off, but i'm almost sure with work, he could have been something great. Always an X division attraction, I think he could have easily been a TV champ in this era, maybe pushing for a World title.
5. Jim Cornette: I know, he's not a wrestler. Hear me out. I think that 2006-2009 era of TNA was the golden age so far for them. The wrestling was on point, they had guys coming from WWE jumping ship, lots of great talent as a whole. Letting go of him eventually lead to Hogan and Bischoff coming in, what I like to call the slight dark ages. Nonetheless, he's one of the better minds in the wrestling biz, if it isn't enough proof with what he's doing with ROH right now.
