What's up Bleaches? ''No time to waste, so let's bleach it!''
The TNA Global Championship (formerly known as the TNA Legend's Championship) was introduced to us by Booker T, on the October 23th, 2008 episode of TNA Impact! It was meant to be Booker T's own personal title, but since A.J. Styles defeated Booker for the belt back in 2009, it has been considered as a sanctioned title and is the official property of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
Six wrestlers have held the title: A.J. Styles, Booker T, Kevin Nash, Eric Young, Mick Foley, and the current champion, Rob Terry. But in my opinion, only one of those guys brought real prestige to the title. That man was A.J. Styles, as he held it the longest and became the first ever TNA Grandslam Champion in the process.
This slide-show lists the top 5 TNA wrestlers who I believe can bring real prestige to the title, by making it look equivalent to the Heavyweight title, and give it some needed credibility. So with out further adieu, ''let's bleach this slide-show!''
At No. 5, we have the former WWE United States Champion Mr. Anderson.
I really didn't like the idea of them turning Anderson face so quickly, but fans have really taken a liking to his new persona and I would expect to see him get mega pushed into the World title picture soon. Anderson has the charisma, mic skills and wrestling ability needed to make a great Global Champion.
At No. 4, we have the former ROH Heavyweight Champion, Desmond Wolfe.
I was glad that Desmond got a shot at the TNA World title, but I honestly didn't expect him to be the man to take away RVD's first TNA World title. TNA should build him up more first and giving him a Global title reign would be the best way to prepare him for the TNA World title. With his wrestling pedigree, he would also add prestige to the title in the process.
At No. 3, the former TNA and ROH Heavyweight Champion, "The Samoan Submission Machine," Samoa Joe.
The whole storyline with Joe going around and beating up every single person is getting stale, real fast. I think that Joe needs something to occupy himself before he gets back into the World Title hunt. Joe is what an all-round wrestler should be and he has a lot of accolades to his name. He can easily make the Global title look much more credible than it looks around the waist of Rob Terry right now.
At No. 2, we have the former 3-time WWE World Champion, ''The Unique Enigma,'' Jeffy Hardy.
Jeffy is currently in a storyline with Mr. Anderson, but I can't see that lasting too long, since Anderson just turned face. I think Jeff is destined to win the TNA World title in the future and most likely he will get it from feuding with Sting. But TNA shouldn't make the same mistake of giving the World title too quickly to another guy who just recently arrived in the company.
Jeff needs to get his feet wet and what better way to do so than giving him the Global Championship? Hardy is a well known name in Pro-wrestling and he is more than qualified to give the title the credibility it desperately needs right now.
At No. 1, we have the most declarated wrestler in Pro Wrestling today. The "The Wrestling Machine" Kurt Angle.
Kurt has slowed down a bit since returning, but I can easily see him being inserted into the World title pic in the near future. Kurt can make any championship look credible (even the ECW title) and he has to be the best candidate to become the second Grandslam champion in the history of TNA, and the Global title is the only one he needs to complete the championship circle.
I think giving Orlando the title would do nothing but bring controversy to it, but it's seems obvious that he's likely to be the man to take it away from Rob. The title is still fairly new, but it needs to be treated like an equivalent title to the World title and be inserted into feuds involving guys like Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle to make it more plausible and important.
