TNA, or Impact Wrestling as they are known, is having a hard time at the moment. In fact, has been having a hard time a lot in recent years, whether it be wrestlers leaving the company, bad business decisions or poor attendance, which has left the company under a lot of criticism. But now and the past, they've had one hell of a roster that have given us some of the greatest matches and moments over the last 16 years.
That brings me to this list of the Top 10 TNA greatest matches in the history of TNA Impact Wrestling.

#10 Kurt Angle vs. Sting - Bound For Glory 2007
Kurt Angle vs. Sting was a dream match that WWE would have loved to have booked, and very nearly did at one point. WWE had been in negotiations with Sting in early 2002 and believed at one point that a deal between the two sides was close to happening — so close,that they even came up with having Sting wrestle Kurt Angle at WrestleMania X8.
However, the deal never happened and with Kurt as a seemingly lifelong WWE star, all hopes of the match went down the drain.
The year 2006 was a big one for TNA Wrestling, not only had Sting come out of retirement to wrestle for them, but Kurt Angle would also part ways with WWE and find himself working for Dixie Carter and Jeff Jarrett.
The plans for Kurt Angle vs. Sting immediately came into play, but TNA needed to be smart about it, and they were, for the most part. Although Sting and Kurt did share the ring on a couple of occasions in multi-man matches, the first one-on-one meeting between the two was saved for TNA's biggest event of the year, Bound For Glory, in 2007.
The build up to the bout was well executed and when it was all said and done, we were left with the best match Sting had wrestled since the late 90's. It had that ‘big match’ feel to it and the crowd loved it, everything was well paced and was just overall exciting. Sting pinned Kurt to lift his second World Championship in TNA.
