Impact Wrestling has been around for about 7 years now, and it's had a lot of talent come through. That said, a lot of guys have stayed with Impact for years-sometimes taking a break, but always coming back to the place that made them the stars they are today, and many of those workers have been rewarded-some more than others-one way or another.
This article is to address the argument that the homegrown talent in Impact has been getting shafted for the sake of veteran names and talent from WWE. That, in my opinion, is not the case, as I believe Impact has rewarded it's originals greatly for the time they've been with the company, and while they may not always be the main-event or be champions, they're still not getting disrespected when they have to take a backseat.
A lot of names come to mind when the term originals come together when Impact is mentioned, and all are multiple time champions, yet It surprises me how often people look at the last two years of someone's career and get a bit upset that someone is taking a backseat to a new talent from WWE or a vet. The irony is, it's different from WWE, which is what people often say TNA should do.
That said, I think if you look at the careers of TNA/Impact Originals, you'll find things aren't as bad as they've been made out to be.
