1. AJ STYLES vs. SAMOA JOE
Let’s just get the most obvious choice out of the way first. It has been almost five years since TNA’s most beloved sons have faced off against each other in a one-on-one classic, and a full EIGHT years since they were given the full-on main event pay-per-view treatment.
There’s so much material to work with here. Since leaving IMPACT both have become even bigger stars – Joe is arguably the best promo in WWE today, and AJ Styles is the freakin’ WWE Champion! One’s a natural born killer of a heel, the other one of the most beloved stars in the business today. It’s perhaps the most natural, organic program the company could run with in 2018. Just give both guys a microphone, tell them to go wild for fifteen minutes on live television, and let them carry Smackdown to the best WWE pay-per-view match of the year.
