    Yeah, AJ started in ROH. I think that had a lot to do with the fact that he was really inexperienced back then.

    Daniels is really charismatic too, even if I do think he's seriously overrated.

    Low Ki is hilarious when he talks..

    Homicide is another one came over from ROH, he has been entertaining from go. CM Punk also, I find Punk less entertaining in the WWE then he was in ROH or TNA

    Shelley and Sabin could do it if given a chance. Although looking at the buyrates it doesn't seem like anybody is really selling PPVs on the mic.

    Would you include Daniels as being a vet, or do you mean the ex-WWE/WCW guys?

    Yeah but just because people come from the WWE doesn't make them any better. Come on now, VKM? Team 3D also didn't seem to draw PPV numbers when they had a shot at a main event. I think that one had the lowest buys of the year.

    Christian is probably the best with promo's though in TNA.

    I can't think of anyone who has a voice that is less appropriate for how they look.

    And Cide is a great interview too. I think part of the problem is that TNA gives most of the younger guys very little promo time and really shitty material.

    The lowest, actually. I think that PPV did about the same numbers ROH's PPVs have done.

    only young guys i really see potential in TNA

    AJ Styles.. annoying upper midcarder maybe a world title run once or twice

    Shelley.. Jericho version pt.2

    Samoa Joe..


    but i think people like styles are only as good as the people they are working with.. christian brought the best out of tomko and styles IMO

    believe it or not, but im not defending any former wwe wrestlers.. i actually think bringing in Angle long term was a bad idea.. TNA mainevent was actually more exciting before Angle

    I don't think it helped that Russo came in at the same time. I'm not even sure if he does that much of the booking, but their booking style did become very Russo-esque once they brought him in. Joe got seriously fucked by that though, if they had put the title on him in late '06 he could've been huge.

    What about Homicide? James Storm? Both of those guys could be big stars if they get the chance I think.

    Tomko has really broken out in the last few months. I'm sure they'll fuck that up though.
