TNA Impact Wrestling seems to be on its last legs. Sure they still have a few good wrestlers, but some have already left TNA to join WWE. For instance, AJ Styles, Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von who were part of TNA for quite a while joined WWE, so only time will tell if other TNA wrestlers will do the same. Some TNA wrestlers even began their wrestling career in the WWE like Mr. Anderson, Lashley, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, Gail Kim and others. Those are just a few names that came from the WWE and the thought of them returning and ending their career in the WWE seems somewhat plausible.
Right now WWE is adding more new faces, so it’s possible more wrestlers from TNA may decide to leave that company. Some names WWE could take a long glance at include Drew Galloway, James Storm, Bobby Roode, Jeff Hardy and Eric Young. These are big names in TNA and can quickly become big ones in WWE. An example of an unknown group of individuals that became a threat to others in the WWE is the Wyatt Family, consisting of Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman. If these individuals decided to go solo they’d still be dominant. It’s like AJ Styles right now. He got the chance to fight a big name of Chris Jericho and now he has the opportunity to face the current WWE champion Roman Reigns for the title.
WWE could use anyone especially this time since their star wrestlers are recovering from injuries like Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and John Cena. WWE fans would surely get a treat if Beer Money tag teamed in the WWE. Gail Kim would also be a tremendous addition to the newly christened women's division. If WWE wants to bring another monster into WWE, that would definitely be Bobby Lashley. Then there’s Eric Young and if people think Dean Ambrose belongs in an asylum, they haven’t seen anything yet from Eric Young. WWE has plenty of stars to target from TNA if any of them want to go to the empire of WWE.
While the wrestlers on this list are all under contract, they are people WWE should be calling when their contracts come up.
12 Eddie Edwards
Eddie Edwards was viewed as one of the greatest independent wrestlers on the planet. What's ironic is he actually did participate in a tryout with WWE and was reported to be a standout at the WWE Performance Center. For whatever reason, Edwards and WWE did not reach an agreement and Edwards made his way to TNA as one half of The Wolves with the next entrant on our list. With TNA's future in doubt, Edwards may have to look for a new employer and NXT is a place he could thrive.
11 Davey Richards
Richards was another top name on the indies and along with Edwards, he received a WWE tryout in 2013. He and Edwards performed in NXT as The American Pitbulls, but lost a tag match to The Ascension. They were soon in TNA, competing as The Wolves, where they have now won the tag titles five times. With the tag team division improving in WWE, bringing The Wolves in would add tremendous depth and secure the tag division's future.
10 Gail Kim
7 Velvet Sky
5 Drew Galloway
4 James Storm
3 Bobby Lashley
2 Tigre Uno
The WWE only has two wrestlers who can wrestle the Lucha Libre style; Kalisto, and Sin Cara. While Kalisto and Sin Cara are both able to wrestle a more Mexican style, they are partners, and rarely are able to showcase their skills to the fullest extent. By plucking Tigre Uno away from TNA, WWE could effectively feature Lucha Libre on WWE programming to attract a Latino audience, and more importantly to combat Lucha Underground.
1 Jeff Hardy
Imagine how crazy WWE fans would get watching the charismatic enigma Jeff Hardy make his return back with the WWE. It would only make sense that the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, would finish his career in the WWE where he made his name.
The benefit of signing a guy like Hardy is that no character development is needed for fans. Most WWE fans will remember Hardy's run in the WWE as either a Tag Team Champion, or as the top guy, except this time WWE has the added benefit of Hardy being sober. A sober Jeff Hardy is something that WWE fans deserve to see, and something WWE would be foolish to not capitalize on.
