Input/Output....Part 3. We Want YOU!

I've read quite a few wishlists and such from all over the place, not the least of which being from those on a certain TNA fan page and you all know who you are. The list you have suggested IS good....Abyss, Steiner, Petey Williams, Awesome Kong, among others. I would like to follow up that list with a few that NO ONE brought up. This is my Top 7 people I would like to see return from TNA's past that I have NEVER talked about before. SO, here they are, in no particular order.....

1. Matt Bentley.....
Kazarian's former tag team partner would be an asset. As cousin and one time training partner of Shawn Michaels, a return to TNA's X Division would be a welcome breath of fresh air as his experience would be invaluable.

2. Trinity.....
One of TNA's ORIGINAL Knockouts, Trinity would be a true throwback to TNA's past. I can tell, some of you have no idea who she was/is. As a former member of Raven's Gathering, she was in a
league of her own. In a twist of historical irony, her departure from TNA was to find an opportunity as a Diva. Her stint in WWE/ECW was short lived and without the fanfare she had hoped for. As a member of the ECW "Future Endeavors Club" alongside former TNA originals Monty Brown, Chris Harris, and Lance Hoyt, WWE proved that they are once again incapable of using a former TNA talent to their potential.








3. Sonny Siaki.....
In a perfect world, he would return. As a former X Division Champion, Siaki held the belt just once, but undoubtedly, he would be a welcome face to those who have been watching from the beginning. As tragedy happens, however, his return would only be as an on screen personality as opposed to a wrestling one. In an act of sacrifice, he donated one of his kidneys to his brother, who was dying, thus putting an end to his 10 year career inside the squared circle.

4. Dusty Rhodes.....
Yeah, he wasn't a wrestler or even a manager, but the former Minister of Authority was a member of TNA Creative for a couple of years leading into Jeff Hardy's first stint in TNA. It was a sad day, indeed, to see Rhodes once again in McMahon's court.

5. Serena Deeb......
The vast masses probably remember her from the Straight Edge Society. I, however, happen to remember that AFTER the Punk faction, she made an appearance in TNA as a contestant in Awesome Kong's 25,000 dollar challenge. It's my belief that if TNA wants to pursue a legitimate Knockouts Division with a deep roster on that side of the camp, her presence would be a valuable asset. A one time shot may not count on SOME people's list, but here, it does.

6. Jack Evans......
One of the former Team Canada members,  Evans made a short lived return this year to compete in the X Division. In my eyes, this should be a staple. His work was exemplary and deserved more ring time and screen time.....and a spot on the TNA permanent roster.

7. Judas Mesias.....
Some might be a bit surprised. Others have an idea of where I'm going already with this pick. Joseph Park. If there is a player I want to see have a part in turning the Joseph Park character into someone I actually care about seeing week to week, it's him. As the character son of Father Mitchell, he could usher Abyss back into the house with the character he made famous.
