IMPACT: Reorganizing the Current Roster

0 of 5

    A big thing about IMPACT that bothers me is the very little separation between main-event and mid-card wrestlers.

    I thought Crimson, Gunner, Steiner and Devon—to name a few—would all be mid-card wrestlers but now they're in the BFG Series fighting for a chance at the World Title.

    That's what bothers me. We have no clear way of separating the wrestlers. That's what I'm going to do right now.

    This is how I would organize the current IMPACT Wrestling roster.

    Yes, all these following pictures were custom-made by me.

The Knockouts

1 of 5

    This is obvious.

    Madison Rayne, Velvet Sky, Mickie James, Tara, Winter, Angelina Love, Sarita, Rosita, Brooke Tessmacher, ODB and Jackie.

    The only issue I have with the Knockouts is that I think there's not enough of them to have a Knockouts Title and Tag Team Titles.

    I'm in favor of Gail Kim returning but Melina sounds to be asking too much money.

    All good with the Knockouts.

    Yes, I made that picture and yes you have to use it whenever you want to talk about the Knockouts.

The X Division

2 of 5

    I love the new X Division.

    Only changes I'd make are to move Kazarian and Robbie E up to the TV title hunt. Make Shannon Moore strictly a tag team wrestler and when Sabin returns, have him and Shelley wrestle mainly in tag team but have a few X Division matches from time to time. 

    I'd also want to sign guys like Petey Williams, Jay Lethal, Amazing Red, Sonjay Dutt, TJ Perkins and Chris Jones to name a few.

The Tag Teams

3 of 5

    I think the tag division could still be strong with only four teams being Motorcity Machine Guns, British Invasion, Ink Inc and Mexican America.

    Sure, extra teams are always welcomed.

    I'd be interested in trying to get Generation Me, World's Greatest Tag Team or the All Night Express on IMPACT. If even one of those teams joined, I'd be excited.

    Notice Beer Money is gone. Despite being the best in the world in my opinion, both guys are ready for singles runs.

TV Title Scene

4 of 5

    This is where the fun begins.

    I get to determine the TV Title scene.

    Okada, Murphy, Devon and Rob Terry are mid-card, TV Title contenders, for life.

    RVD and Devon need to go into "put over" mode and put over younger guys. I'm also sick of seeing RVD in the World title hunt. He thinks he's bigger than the company? 

    Gunner, Crimson and Eric Young can be upper mid-card guys who are being built into future main-event talent.

    Storm, Daniels, Kazarian and Hardy can transition between the TV Title hunt and World title hunt. Consider the TV title a test for Jeff Hardy. Give him the TV Title and see how he does before putting him in the main event.

    Kid Kash can transition between X Division and TV Title, but I'd rather see him with the TV Title.

World Title Hunt

5 of 5

    I would include Anderson, AJ, Angle, Morgan, Bully Ray, Abyss, Roode, Pope, Joe, Storm, Kazarian, Daniels and maybe Jeff Hardy and RVD in the main event.

    For Morgan, Pope, Roode and Anderson, it's been a long time coming. They definitely deserve a chance at a World Title.

    They're all great workers and Anderson and Pope are two of the most entertaining guys in wrestling.

    Joe is a great homegrown, agile big man and definitely has what it takes to be Champion once again.

    Bully Ray is the best heel in wrestling today in my opinion and definitely deserves one World Title reign before he calls it a career.

    AJ and Angle are the two best wrestlers in the world today in my book.

    It's an interesting case with Abyss. If Abyss can be a monster heel, then yes, I want him to main-event shows and pay-per-views. If he is the Abyss who loses to Brian Kendrick and other much smaller guys, then no.

    Abyss needs to be a monster heel to be a main-eventer for me.

    Guys like Scott Steiner, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Jeff Jarrett, Sting and other old guys would have to take more of a backstage role or else, feel free to walk.

    I'd want to get rid of Hogan and Bischoff and name Sting as General Manager.
