1.) Crimson would be good as number two face in TNA, but I can't see him being the number one guy. I see Crimson as more of a Batista or CM Punk, rather than a John Cena. For two reasons, the first reason is that his mic skills are okay, but not great. He is more likely to get over due to him being so intense in the ring sort of like Goldberg, Ultimate Warrior, and Batista. Reason two, and this might be trivial, but his tattoos. If you look at WWE and WCW most of their number one guys weren't tatted up. They had the clean look, and if they had tattoos it wasn't very noticeable. Before everyone says the Undertaker, while Taker was a WWE mainstay maineventer he was never the number one guy in the WWE. All in all I'd say that Crimson is the biggest lose in these roster cuts.
2.) Joey Ryan was a victim of Matt Morgan oddly enough. With Ryan "teaming" with Morgan after his initial feud with Al Snow he really never got a chance to shine or get the spotlight. Ryan should've been placed in a proper feud with someone like a Kurt Angle or Samoa Joe. Somebody where his Sleezey gimmick would have really shined. However with all that being said Ryan is good with a microphone and pretty good in the ring, he isn't good enough to cover up his size and age. Overall I think this was not that big of a loss for TNA.
I don't really care about any of the other releases as women's wrestling isn't a draw and women wrestlers are easily replaceable.
