Top 15 Wrestlers Who Never Won The TNA Championship

The history of TNA is often maligned for the errors in judgment and poor decisions by those in charge. The company failed to ever develop a true mind in charge of creative and the various teams coming in and out led to different philosophies. For as many chefs that were in the kitchen, the result always managed to be the same. TNA was bound for mediocrity and to fail to meet their potential as an alternative to WWE. While the company let the performers down on many occasions, the amount of tremendous talent to work for TNA is actually impressive. The wrestlers have never been the problem.

TNA had a mix of past legends and future stars. The older veterans from the days of 90s WWE and WCW television were supposed to bring more viewers to television and interest in attending live shows. This never helped spike the ratings higher than the usual 1.1 area the company resided in for years. In fairness, fans are more likely to try out a product for a familiar face but when that’s all you’re selling, it’s hard to see the viewers coming back. The future stars were plentiful with a wide array of talented young workers with different styles and personalities.

Most of the problems arrived because the company failed to put the wrestlers in the best position for success. Today, TNA is in a dreary process of attempting to rebuild on Pop TV but the work of having to regain the trust of the fan base is going to be a difficult task. Almost all of the elite TNA talents have gone on to win the world title. Some have been too late, some have been too early, but it’s great that A.J. Styles, Samoa Joe and Bobby Roode were at least allowed the chance to swim or sink with the title. There are still many great talents that the company never pulled the trigger on and we’re going to look at the fifteen best stars to never hold the TNA World Championship.

The clear choice for the best wrestler to never hold the TNA World Champion in company history is “The Fallen Angel,” Christopher Daniels. While A.J. Styles and Samoa Joe deservedly became the top stars in TNA due to their classic X-Division matches, Daniels was equally important in this equation. The three took TNA wrestling to new heights in the mid-2000s with must-see matches on every PPV and episode of Impact. Daniels was a loyal and tremendous wrestler in TNA for years, but was never given the honors of winning the world title. No matter how many times he improved or rebranded himself, the company didn’t believe in him and he turned into the best TNA star to never win their world title.
