The WWE Talent TNA Could Poach

First post so go easy guys.
I like that we have competition in the world of Professional Wrestling. I think it's healthy for business as it forces the creative teams for each promotion to continue to think of storylines that will grab our attention. It's up to the performers themselves to hold it for as long as they can (a lost art, but that's for another blog)
There are a few guys in TNA that I like that can be used in a varying ways. Roode being one. Styles being another. Bubba, the X Division, the Knockouts.
However I think we need a bit more diversity and I think importing a few names from the WWE would be major additions to the TNA Roster.
Sheamus - This is a pretty big man at 6'4" and 267. He's got a unique look and a decent set of skills in the ring as well as being average to above average on the stick. The problem is that he would tower over most of the competition in TNA aside from Matt Morgan and Abyss. He could easily fued with the likes of Crimson, Bubba Ray, Morgan, Roode just to name a few.
Wade Barrett - Here's another guy that would do well in TNA. He, along with Magnus (odd name for a guy from England) can form a more legit British Invasion sort of angle. Both are solid on their own, both are solid in the ring and on the mic so using them in different ways makes the partnership a match made in heaven. Again, his size and in ring skills make him flexible in terms of who he can fued with.
Dolph Ziggler - This kid has charisma, talent and a look. Immediately upon entering TNA he can get hooked up with Flair (for a very short period). The rub would be short, but long lasting in that Dolph would "steal" Flair's gmmick. I know they have tried to re-create the Horsemen in the past with varied degrees of failure, but none of those attempts had anyone that had the skill set and look of this kid. Again, it's a short association where Ziggler sends Flair packing.
Beth Phoenix and Natalya - These ladies are wrestlers and are wasting their time in the WWE where they do not want women wrestlers. They want pretty faces and jokes. Both would be able to do what they do best in TNA which is showcase their in ring skills as wrestlers. Granted the competition in terms of overall size is limited in TNA, but the flip side is that the actual in ring talent would more than make up for the lack of size in relation to Beth and Natalya.
Would very much like to hear what you folks think.
