Would They Be Better Off: Punk, Bryan, Ryder, More

Rating: 2 votes, 1.00 average.
Hey fans. DK Wrestling Savior here, putting out a special blog based on something I was thinking about. Now, I stopped watching WWE after Raw 1000, and while there are definitely some things I miss, it's a decision I don't regret. Based on things I've seen in passing, or read from blogs that are written by some friends of mine on here, or updates from my brother who still watches, I have a decent idea of what's happening and I'm not exactly missing a whole lot. Staying dedicated to TNA is just fine for me. I've spent some time catching up on TNA from like 05 and 06. Boy did I miss out. And one stand out during that time, is a current WWE wrestler who made an appearance at this past year's Slammiversary...Christian...or Christian Cage as he was known. So, that compelled me to write this blog.

In what I know about WWE since Raw 1000, it's that Christian has lost two matches in which he was putting over a younger talent, but it was in virtual squash fashion. A total disservice to someone like Christian if you ask me. I know he's aging and will probably not accomplish much more in WWE, he's someone who could have a very successful return in TNA. He had a great reception at Slammiversary I would love to see him back.

But...That Goes Without Saying. In the midst of all this mid carder unhappiness that's being reported, I've compiled a list of wrestlers who might be better served in TNA, rather than WWE. Remember, I'm not saying they should or will go, I'm saying it might be better for them.

Drew Mcintyre

He got pushed in a big way when he debuted. But it just never happened for him since. WWE had opportunities to move him back into relevance, and they opted not to. Now, at this point, he's completely tainted, and if not for Linda's campaign, he would have been released already. A move to TNA would give him a fresh start.

Alex Riley

Here's another guy that has ability, and WWE just refuses to recognize it. He feuded with Miz and then dropped off the face of the earth. I don't consider NXT or Superstars to be anything but a joke, so if he's not on Raw or Smackdown, he would probably be better served on Thursday nights. He's young. He has good size and talent, and really deserves a chance to really show what he can do.

Evan Bourne

X Division. Do I really need to say more? What a great addition this guy would make. He is made for an Ultimate X match.

Trent Baretta and Yoshi Tatsu

...see above.

Okay, I got the obvious ones out of the way. Now I think it's time for some shockers.

Zack Ryder

I'm cheating a bit here because his name has been linked to the unhappy mid-carders, but he seriously would benefit from the change. He hasn't been involved in anything significant for a while, even though he's very popular. He could keep a similar gimmick, or get a fresh start to be more serious. Or he could take out his wannabe Jersey Shore boy, Robbie E. Either way, he'd be over instantly and I'm sure he could put on good matches on Impact.

Jack Swagger

Here is a guy who when I hear his name, I think, total injustice. He is such an athlete. Since TNA really focuses on quality wrestling, he would be a great fit. Matches with Angle and Joe would be awesome stuff.

And for the second biggest shocker of them all....I stand by what I said post Wrestlemania.

Daniel Bryan

YES YES YES, I said it. Let's face it. DB has already maxed out in WWE. Yes, I'm making a pretty bold statement there, but think about it. He lost to Sheamus, now there's a list for that title. He lost in his feud with Punk, now there's a list and a plan for that title. He's jobbed to Cena and to Oton. WWE again will put him in positions where people won't take him seriously. He's nothing right now, but a "Yes" catchphrase. He'll always lose to Vince McMahon's "bigger superstars" and probably won't see another top title. In TNA, he can find himself in a position to be the face of the company. The top dog, the main man. He would have great matches not just with Styles and Roode, but with Angle, and rekindle his ROH feud with Joe. If you ask me, it would just suit him better. And that leads me to...

THE BIGGEST SHOCKER OF THEM ALL...

CM Punk

Okay, yes, CM Punk is like a 5 or 6 time champ in the biggest promotion. I get that. But what does the future really hold for him? In all honestly, and there's really no way of getting around this, Punk is the top star, out of the ones who aren't top stars. He won't be headlining Wrestlemania...ever. It will always be John Cena. It will always be The Rock. It will always be some other star from the past, who has reached elite status. A status he just doesn't have, nor will he ever have. In my opinion, he's peaked. WWE did him right at the end of his last contract. They signed him back and gave him a chance at the top. But even so, he always sat second chair behind Cena. That's where TNA comes in. As would be the case with Bryan, he would have a chance to be THE MAN. They can build around him down there, and he can be it. Imagine, not only could we get more epic battles with him and Hardy, We could see Punk vs Styles or Punk vs Roode or Punk vs Aries. The situation could suit him better, and he could also be the type of talent that can take TNA to the next tier.

I'm going to close this out by rehashing what I said in the beginning. This is just food for thought. I'm not saying it's going to happen, or that it should happen. I'm not claiming that any of it will happen. All I'm saying is, What If. So before the WWE marks or TNA haters get their panties twisted and start blurting out shit like, "Well the Ryan Clark Reported This" or "The Dirt Sheets Said That", just remember, this is just a hypothetical.

Thanks for reading everyone. I'd love to hear your thoughts on who might be better served in TNA, as long as they are logical. Be Safe Everyone.

    Probably none of them would ever want to consider TNA lol. The pay there pales in comparison to the pay in WWE. And I'm sure most of them care more about that than how they're used *shrug*

    Christian (Cage) is the man. I loved him during his TNA run and I was incredibly sad when he left. Unfortunately, money was more important than success. I guess I can't blame the guy, really. Evan Bourne in TNA would be great, he and Styles had some amazing matches in the independent scene years back. TNA fits his style a lot more than the 'E, that's for sure. I would love to see Bryan and Punk in TNA, who wouldn't? Good stuff, man. I'd like to see Dolph Ziggler in TNA. That man would sell the Angle Slam (or any move, for that matter) like a champ!

    I don't care that you don't watch raw, actually who cares? It's just a program why won't watch it? Can't you watch both of them? On tv or Youtube? Stop bitching and none of those guys will leave. And since Tna concentrates on quality wrestling? The main story is the one with Aces & Eights and when did you saw them WRESTLE ? Or Claire Lynch I read she is/was a pornstar! You' re damn right a porn actor on a QUALITY WRESTLING company that is quality wrestling. And this JP and Bully Ray storyline sucks too. A fat lawyer who actually is his own brother. The only thing they do is signing papers and talking fat guy to fat guy.

    I don't hate TNA but the people who do hate them have these points (i think) They take every Ex-WWE star, sign people like Hogan, Bitchoff, Flair and Sting who don't wrestle Again NO quality wrestling. Tna = WWE wannabee. You CAN watch both wwe and tna. Every blog of you, you talk about how tna got better and you don' t watch wwe FUCK OFF

    Okay so I draw issue with a few of things here. One, if you watched the new nXt, you'd know it's definitely not a joke, it's almost more enjoyable than Raw and Smackdown combined, and it's very wrestling focused, almost no promos. Second, I don't see Daniel Bryan losing ground or stagnating at all, the fans are strongly behind him and he is staying in the general vicinity of the main event without being in a title picture. Finally, saying Punk can't be "they man" in the 'E seems like a stretch. He beat Cena in two great matches last summer, had a great feud with one of the most popular wrestlers world wide (hint: he has a band) and is now positioned to move back into a more comfortable tweener roll. He hasn't reached his peak and certainly hasn't "done it all." I think Punk has a lot more to do before he's done with the WWE.

    He did beat Cena, but neither was a clean win...nor will his win tonight be clean. In fact, he'll probably steal the win over Big Show...see the trend here? He'll never one up Cena. Ever. He will always be second seat. Or third or fourth if you decide to include The Rock, and even Randy Orton. My guess is, Punk will lose the title to The Rock, and never see it again.
