Crimson debuted on Dec. 30, 2010, but I felt that he is too big of a wrestler to leave of the list. He's on a huge undefeated streak and is definitely the rookie of the year.
Any TNA fan can tell you about the "Double J, Double M A" challenges from January.
In case you forgot, I'll give you a brief reminder.
Jeff Jarrett picked up a gimmick as an experienced MMA fighter. He had his own crew and "dojo." He challenged mostly plants (Indy wrestlers) from the crowd to an MMA Challenge. You win, you get $25,000 in cash. You lose, Double J would add you to his list and his level of arrogance would increase even more.
Well, one week Jarrett called out Amazing Red to accept the challenge. Red accepted and Jarrett beat him within seconds. Jarrett, hungry for competition, asked Red if he had relatives. Jarrett was even willing to fight Amazing Red's grandma if he had to. Red agreed to bring his little brother the following week.
Here comes Crimson. Standing 6 foot 6, 252 pounds. This was Red's little brother?!
He dominated Jarrett in the MMA Challenge, but Jarrett fled from the fight, thus keeping his MMA unbeaten streak intact.
