Until a couple years ago, Jeff Jarrett was a huge force in TNA, and was a 6-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion, while TNA was part of the NWA. While many people say he hogged the main event scene, the years while he was in the main event scene are looked at as the best years of TNA. He is a huge name in wrestling, and it would definitely benefit the company if he came back to an onscreen role. Jarrett left his onscreen TNA role in 2011 to go to Mexico to work in AAA. If Jarrett came back to an onscreen role, he could go against Team Dixie, and maybe bring some old TNA stuff back, such as maybe the six-sided ring, which would definitely make the IWC happy. Even if he comes back after the Team Dixie story is over, it’d be nice to have back someone who has been there since the beginning. Jeff Jarrett was in the first major TNA feud with Scott Hall. They put on some great matches, and even though he is not as young as he was then, he is still in good shape and I’m sure he’s still great in the ring. Jeff Jarrett will most likely be next years TNA Hall of Fame Inductee, so maybe he will return at next years Bound For Glory? I’m hoping it’s before that, and that would piss a lot of people off if he was the inductee next year, so I’m really hoping he returns in the next few months.
Christian Cage, also known as Christian from the well known tag team Edge and Christian, was a two time NWA World Heavyweight Champion, and was a huge part of TNA from 2005 until 2008. While he was been insanely successful in WWE, Christian has never really been a main-eventer, however in TNA he was a main-eventer pretty much throughout his whole career. Even though he is probably close to retiring and from what I have heard does not like TNA, it would be awesome to see him come back to TNA for the last couple years of his career.
In early 2011 after being released from WWE, Matt Hardy entered TNA. He was there for only a few months, but made a decently big impact on the company. He was released after a DWI, and has been in ROH and doing indy shows since his release, but I’m hoping that at some point he returns to TNA.
Awesome Kong, also known as Amazing Kong, was a HUGE force in the TNA Knockouts Division from 2007-2010. She was a 2-time Knockouts Champion and a 1-time Knockouts Tag Team Champion, and put on some great matches during her TNA run. I would LOVE for her to return, especially considering she is in GREAT shape now, and she is still relatively young, however I doubt TNA would treat her as well because of her (awful and short) WWE run, and in a 2012 interview she stated she would never work for TNA again. I hope that one day they can come to terms on a return even if it is just for a couple weeks. She was asked to return for the Knockouts Knockdown pay-per-view, but chose to turn down the offer, which makes me think she has personal issues with someone in TNA.
Jay Lethal was a big star in TNA. He was a 6-time X-Division Champion, a 1-time Tag Team Champion with Consequences Creed, won the Tag Team Championship shot in Feast or Fired 2008, and his team won the 2008 World X-Cup. He is currently signed to ROH, but I recently had a conversation with him on a chatroom he was on that he linked to on his Twitter, and he stated he would return to TNA if he was not on contract with Ring of Honor, which hopefully means that when his contract expires (I’m not sure how far away that is, hopefully it’s not too far away) he will return to TNA. He is only 28, and has a long way to go before he retires.
Alex Shelley was a 1-time tag team champion, a 1-time X-Division Champion, and his team won the 2008 World X-Cup. When you ask people who they want to return to TNA, a majority will say Alex Shelley. He is most well known for his tag team with Chris Sabin, the Motor City Machine Guns, and is only 30, so hopefully one day we will see him back in TNA.
Thanks for reading, comment what you think :D!
