TNA Wrestling was founded in 2002 and has since become one of WWE's main rivals following their complete domination of WCW.
Over the past 14 years, many superstars have walked through TNA and whilst the likes of Sting, Samoa Joe, Abyss and AJ Styles have become household names because of their association with the company, many superstars were not as lucky.
Much like WWE before them, TNA have taken on some abysmal talent and that has shown through their inability to produce a show that is consistently narrative. This is one of the main reasons TNA are doing so badly at the moment, and the reason they went through a phase a few years ago, where because they were unable to pay any of their talent due to their vast financial problems.
TNA even introduced their British Boot Camp in 2014 as a way of bringing more international wrestlers to their Orlando, Florida base and this worked for a while when they signed Rockstar Spud and Marc Andrews. But even this fizzled out, and it also hasn't made up for the bad script writing and equally bad talent they have allowed to walk through their curtains over the past few years.
As already stated, unlike WWE, TNA has only been officially established for 14 years which means that there isn't a lot of history to remember when it comes to the worst wrestlers in their company, but the following is a list of 10 of the worst that TNA have allowed on their roster.
10 Crazzy Steve
Crazzy Steve debuted in TNA in 2014 and given his name, it was already apparent that he was going to be a slightly insane star. But he was completely lacking in all aspects of this character.
9 Jenna Morasca
The former Survivor winner was signed to TNA more than six years after she won the competition, and proved to have been a complete waste of what was reported to have been almost half a million dollars.
8 Orlando Jordan
Orlando Jordan was one of the superstars that TNA decided to sign after his run with their rivals WWE, but he was a big mistake. Orlando didn’t accomplish very much in WWE because he didn’t really have a gimmick and the fans hardly cared about his character.
7 Jeff Hardy
Jeff Hardy makes the list for his bad choices more than for his wrestling ability. In WWE, he was one of the shining lights. He had a big fan following and was finally given the WWE Championship in 2009, but following drug issues, he was released from the company.
6 Lacey Von Erich
Lacey was brought into TNA to be a part of The Beautiful People and admittedly, she was a beautiful person. She was obviously brought into TNA because of this, which meant that she had no business stepping between the ropes.
5 Mr. Pec-tacular
Fantastic play on words with this name, but he was basically TNA’s version of Chris Masters. Coming off the back of a decent showing in Big Brother, TNA decided to sign him to a contract and have him debut in spectacular style at a TNA taping. The only issue was, no one knew who he was and he couldn’t actually wrestle.
4 Pacman Jones
WWE proved when they signed The Rock, that former NFL players could be successful wrestlers. But when TNA signed Pacman Jones in 2007, they proved that not all footballers can wrestle.
3 Joker Sting
Sting was easily one of the greatest superstars that TNA ever signed. He helped put the company on the map and managed to win an incredible amount of championships during his time there, but when TNA unveiled his Joker character, it became a dark era for The Icon.
2 Garrett Bischoff
When your dad takes over one of the biggest wrestling companies in the world, it is a fantastic opportunity to become World Champion, right? Well, that seems to be the way Garrett saw TNA.
1 Ric Flair
One of the greatest WWE wrestlers of all time, the 16-time World Champion should have stayed out of the wrestling ring after his emotional farewell match with Shawn Michaels, but instead, he made the switch to TNA and it became one of the worst mistakes he ever made.
Flair proved that he should never have wrestled again following his WrestleMania 25 match, by becoming a character that even he himself wasn’t even proud of during his time in TNA. Thankfully, his run didn’t last very long because he decided to head back to WWE.
