There’s been a lot of talk here over the past couple of months about TNA as a whole, so I thought I’d try a different approach and talk about specifics. Today, I’d like to talk a little about the TNA Global Championship and how TNA has dropped the ball with it and turned it into utter garbage. I’ll tell you why it’s even more meaningless than title such as the FTW World Championship and the Stone Cold Smoking Skull Championship.
Originally, the TNA Global Championship was held by a Canadian, Eric Young, and was supposed to only be defended against foreign competitors outside of American turf. This quickly changed when Young ended up defending the title against random Americans from the TNA roster, in the TNA ring. The belt is currently held by “The Freak” Rob Terry. Now, Terry is from the United Kingdom, however, like Eric Young, he has been defending the title against just about anybody, most of which are from the United States. He is currently involved in a feud with Orlando Jordan over the championship. What if Orlando were to win the gold and defend it against other Americans in the IMPACT Zone. This would make the “Global” Championship slogan even more meaningless.
This would allow international wrestlers to come into TNA for one time appearances. Some of the international stars I’d like to see compete in TNA for the Global Championship include, Jushin Thunder Liger, Alex Kozlov, Tyson Dux, Millano Connection A.T., Kota Ibushi, Wataru Inoue, The Great Muta, Yugi Nagata, Shinsuke Nakamura, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Ultimo Dragon, PAC, Naruki Doi, Shingo, CIMA, Juventud Guerrera, Hector Garza, Puma, Shocker, Mr. Aguila (formerly known as Essay Rios in WWE), Super Crazy, Psychosis, and the list goes on. TNA would obviously have to associate themselves with other promotions other than new Japan Pro Wrestling in order for this project to be most successful.
