10 best feuds in TNA history
TNA/Impact Wrestling have had some of the best rivalries in pro wrestling history, and here are the top 10!
TNA, or Impact Wrestling as they are known, are having a hard time at the moment. In fact, they have been having a hard time a lot in recent years, from wrestlers leaving the company to bad business decisions or poor attendance. But now and in the past, they've had one hell of a roster that has given us some of the greatest matches and moments over the last 16 years.
That brings me to this list of the Top 10 greatest feuds in the history of TNA Impact Wrestling.
#10 Kurt Angle vs. Sting
Kurt Angle and Sting was a dream match and feud that WWE really wished they could have promoted, in fact, they almost did, back in early 2002 when Sting was close to agreeing terms with WWE. They had planned on a match between the two at WrestleMania XVIII, but plans obviously changed when Sting declined WWE's offer at the eleventh hour.
The Icon came out of retirement in early 2006 and joined TNA as a part-time performer. Kurt Angle would join TNA in September 2006, and thus hopes were raised for the match to finally happen, and it did. The first match between the two occurred in April 2007 on Impact, but quickly ended in a double disqualification following interference from Christian Cage, Tomko and AJ Styles.
Kurt turned heel shortly thereafter and briefly held the TNA Tag Team Championship with Sting in the summer in 2007, before turning on him and attacking him, officially setting up their feud. Sting would defeat Kurt for the TNA World Championship in The Icon's best match in about a decade, at Bound For Glory.
Their feud ended the following month, but was reignited in 2009, during a power struggle over leadership in the Main Event Mafia. Angle and Sting would feud once more in 2011, which would see Sting lose the World title to Kurt at Hardcore Justice.
