Cody Rhodes, the Undisputed WWE Champion, has made a groundbreaking announcement that has sent shockwaves through the wrestling universe.

This development comes on the heels of a thrilling NXT Battleground: Las Vegas event, which saw the return of Dana Brooke, now known as “Ash by Elegance” in TNA, and the arrival of Jordynne Grace, who challenged for the NXT Women’s Championship.

Reports indicate that the partnership between WWE and TNA will extend beyond the recent premium live event, fueling speculation about which TNA stars will follow Grace’s lead and join the WWE roster.

As the wrestling world eagerly awaits the June 18 episode of NXT, five former TNA World Heavyweight Champions have emerged as potential candidates to make the jump to WWE:

– Kurt Angle

– Bobby Roode

– Eric Young

– James Storm

– Matt Hardy

These wrestling luminaries possess the talent, charisma, and experience to make a serious impact in WWE. As the partnership between WWE and TNA continues to expose, it’s possible that we’ll see some of these faces appear in the Battle Royal or become regular fixtures on WWE programming, shaking up the wrestling landscape in the process.
