Distress.....

R-Truth is now off the active roster and on injured reserve as is Alberto Del Rio. A broken foot makes defending the Tag Team Title very difficult and a concussion makes headlining problematic at best..... Let's have a look at the list of the inactive....

Alberto Del Rio-severe concussion
R-Truth- broken foot
Evan Bourne- broken foot
Randy Orton- suspended
Rey Mysterio- suspended
Sin Cara- suspended

This is a substantial piece of the top tier, make no mistake. Yes, Mysterio and Sin Cara are readying themselves for return, but there is no place for them as of yet. While the flip-flopping of WWE's writing team has been able to fool a fair portion of the masses so far, they won't be able to forever. There are signs of dissension from within with Brock Lesnar and Triple H's storyline as the only money making feud going into the summer.

The question probably on your mind as you read this is "So what? I was wanting to read about TNA, not WWE." TNA's roster has one injury to speak of right now on the active roster....Chris Sabin, who tore his ACL during Ultimate X this past week. That only makes 2 injuries on the entire roster.....Chris Sabin and Jesse Sorenson. I, personally, hope for the speedy recovery of both, but I'd say TNA has the lion's share of luck in this area, but considering the lighter schedule they employ, I doubt luck has much to do with anything.

Does WWE have any true money feuds aside from Big Show vs. Cena right now? Nothing worth mentioning. Once Chris Jericho returns in the coming week, we may see something, but in TNA, we're seeing the Bound for Glory Series, Abyss vs. Bully Ray, Kaz and Daniels vs. AJ Styles and Kurt Angle, and James Storm's ascent to take on Bobby Roode, not to mention the most recent attack on Sting this past week. Right now, TNA is leading the charge going into the summer with bigger feuds and a healthier roster of talents to carry them out.
