Wrestlers that should be swapped between WWE and TNA(Part1)

Hello everyone, this is my first blog in 2013! I would say happy new year, but I guess i'm very late. Anyway, the topic I chose today is about WWE and TNA. You probably already assumed that by the title, but i'm still going to explain. In this blog(Part1) I will say Wrestlers from TNA who would be the best choice, and benefit more from being in WWE. In part 2, it's very obvious, I will say WWE Wrestlers who should go to TNA. You get the picture, let's get on with the blog.

Note: The people I choose to be on my WWE and TNA list are Wrestlers that have never been to the rival company, but for the exception for some.

05. Austin Aries

Austin Aries is at a point in his career where he is cementing his legacy, and setting himself to be a future TNA hall of famer. He recently made a transition from a good X Division Champion to a great main eventer. When we all found out Jeff Hardy would be his opponent at Bond For Glory I wasn't really sure what the outcome would be. I thought if Jeff Hardy won it would be...bye...bye...for Austin Aries big push. I was wrong, Austin managed to put on a great match with Hardy for his title rematch, to this day he is still considered relevant, and remains fresh. Austin Aries is 34 years old; do you think it's to late for Aries to become a WWE superstar? My answer is no, but I doubt he would make the jump. He is a TNA original, and for some of his career he's been a part of ROH. I think, if Aries was at WWE from the start he would be given a young HBK treatment.

04. James Storm

I always preferred James Storm to Bobby Roode. James Storm should have had a longer reign has TNA World Heavy Weight Champion, and I hope he regains it in the future to come. I think the James Storm character could be very marketable, especially to the male market. TNA just don't have the money to make him or it's self more popular. If TNA don't market themselves more heavily they will never get that far. They need to take risks, if they don't, how do you expect them to achieve anything? That is why James Storm should be moved to WWE. WWE will give Storm the chance to showcase himself to a bigger audience and see if he can sell merchandises. If he fails, it could be WWE or himself or even both, that led to Storm not interesting the WWE universe. All i'm saying, James Storm for his own benefit, should be the one to take a risk and jump rival ship.

03. Bobby Roode

This man is TNA's longest World Champion. In his reign, he would do absolutely anything to retain. That mostly meant cheat his way to win. Normally this would make the holder weak, but it just made Bobby more vital and dominant. The things this man did to Dixie Carter and Sting was sickening. In WWE, the modern heel would cowardly cheat his way to win. This makes the WWE more predictable and boring. I am not saying Bobby Roode doesn't do that, i'm saying Roode does do exactly that but brings a lot more to the table. He reminds me of the once known legend killer Randy Orton. I can see him doing a CM Punk sort of title reign, but less whinnying and more action when he has the chance to. If Booby Roode ever comes to WWE he would defiantly bring in the selfish generation.

02. Samoa Joe

I haven't seen anyone the size of Samoa Joe that could still move quick and be very athletic. I feel for the past couple of years, TNA have not been using Samoa Joe to his full potential. He was TV Champion, and was bringing prestige back to the Title. I feel he should be right up there contending for TNA's World Title. If he was to be in WWE, i'm sure, he would be pushed as a monster heel. What makes him different to the average big heel the WWE push, is Joe is athletic, fast and has good technical skills. He is a monster that can wrestle...isn't that a shock. I could see him being a multi-time World Champion. The only thing he may need to work on is his mic skills, but he is a man with few words and I guess it suits him better that way. I would give him a manager for a while if he was to go to WWE, until the people get attached him, so then he can ditch the manager.

01. AJ Styles

The number one choice on my list is AJ Styles. The times when I didn't even watch TNA I still heard of this man; many people would agree that AJ Styles is the face of TNA. He participated in which was arguably TNA's best match. He is one of the three men who was wrestling since the first TNA show, to still be associated with it now. I believe AJ Styles should of been the first man inducted in the TNA Hall of Fame. My opinion, it should of been between him, and Jeff Jarrett. In WWE, I could see him being one of the top faces in the company. He would defiantly put on phenomenal matches. I don't know why, but I can picture styles winning the WWE Championship in the main event of Wrestlemania. WWE offered him a contract back in 2001, after WCW was purchased by WWE. He declined the offer because it would interfere with his family. I Believe, if he had joined WWE he would have became a future star. He would have taken his career to new heights, more than TNA could ever do for him. Anyway, It is to late for him to go WWE and he recently said he may be retiring soon.

Honorable mentions: Matt Morgan, Velvet Sky, Abyss, Christopher Daniels, Eric Young(clown), Crimson.

I understand that the people I have chosen are loyal to their company, so I or you don't expect them to jump ship anytime soon. I just picked the Wrestlers who I think could maybe have a better Career if they was in the rival company. Thanks for reading my blog, tell me who you agree or disagree with? Is their anyone you would put in? Leave a comment and tell me your thoughts.

    Outside of maybe Austin Aries, none of these TNA wrestlers would amount to anything in WWE. They know this themselves, which is why they continue to remain in TNA.

    I disagree with the guy above. Roode, Aries and Styles would have every chance of making it in WWE. Particularly Aries and Roode. They are great heels and the WWE roster is thin in that department. I would like all of these guys in WWE personally but TNA would have a pretty shit roster if you swapped these guys with the wrestlers you have proposed from WWE.

    The only one from that list that would have any chance of succeeding in WWE is Bobby Roode, and it's likely he would just end up as a mid-carder, in TNA he's the top heel, I can't see him giving that up to take a chance in WWE.

    James Storm would be completely repackaged as his gimmick is too similar to Stone Cold, plus it's too stereotypical, pretty sure he would flop in WWE and he knows it, he's got a good thing going in TNA and won't give that up anytime soon.

    AJ Styles is small with bland mic skills. For how his career in WWE would pan out see Evan Bourne.

    Samoa Joe has weight problems and attitude issues. WWE have no interest in him.

    Austin Aries is too small and would have to tone down his style. Would be a low-card jobber at best, is a top guy in TNA, why would he leave that to appear on Superstars in WWE.

    The only person on the list who could possibly go anywhere is Austin Aries and maybe Samoa Joe. Austin Aries would probably have a good run considering the way the Punk's paved. Samoa Joe would have to probably change his gimmick up to be more "Samoan". The rest of the list would go nowhere in the WWE. They're all too old and their careers have already been made in TNA.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but one of your top 5 and a couple of your honorable mentions have appeared in WWE.
    AJ Styles was signed to a developmental contract with WWE in 2002 and competed several times on WWF Jakked.
    Christopher Daniels wrestled in the WWE from 1998 through 2001. He wrestled on Sunday Night Heat and also on Jakked. He was also one half of the tag team Los Conquistadores.
    Matt Morgan got his start through the WWE. He competed on the 2nd season on the original Tough Enough. He was a very early favorite to win until he had to withdraw due to injury. He later competed on Smackdown in two separate stints with the main roster between 2003 and 2005.
    Velvet Sky also appeared on WWE television several times. She even wrestled on WWE heat in a match against Victoria (Tara in TNA) in 2005.

    Kurt is the man I'd like to see him return. He still has a few good years left according to him but he has 5 star matches without the silly gimmick he had when he was in WWE. I wish swagger didn't speak the way he does he would be the next Kurt hands down!
    this is probably the stupidest list I've seen so WWE get 5 main eventers & TNA get 2 wrestlers who barely appear on the card a diva who's already left the company & 2 main eventers very equal trade
