Favorites.....

I've done some thinking about some of my favorite debuts and, even though I've done something like this before, I think it's nice to see them once again. TNA has had some true great classic debuts and I think we should have a look......here are 5 starters for you.

Team 3D.....
Because I have to give a bit of trivia....When Team 3D arrived, they had had some disputes with WWE over the trademarking of their in ring personas. That being said, they were required to adhere to a dress code that was outside of what they wore in WWE. That meant no camo shorts. That meant no glasses with tape on the frame. It meant a whole lot of changes for them and so, if you look closely, you'll see a t-shirt that may have only been available for a short time from TNA. The print says "Trademark This!"


Jeff Hardy.....


Jeff Hardy was a shock because he'd been away from the game for nearly a year before returning to the ring in a new company on the rise. TNA couldn't have picked a better opponent and the debut was one of TNA's finest free agent acquisitions of the recent past.

Christian......

Christian had been working without a contract before coming to TNA. His final date with WWE was paid as an independent date from his contract, which had expired only a week before he was to appear as an option for one of WWE's cyber PPVs. The following week, he had a bombshell for the wrestling world as he landed in TNA.

Kurt Angle......

His announcement as TNA's newest acquisition in 2005 cemented him as 'THE GUY' and they couldn't have picked a better place for him to begin his TNA career. At the time, Samoa Joe had been in the middle of a nearly year long undefeated streak, much as Crimson was later. TNA couldn't have picked a better time to debut one of their greatest assets.

RVD.......

This was something unexpected as RVD had appeared as a surprise entrant to the Royal Rumble the year before. It had been supposed that he would remain on the WWE roster after that time, but TNA had a surprise for the fans of Mr. PPV.


A bit of trivia and some good performances and you get something special.
