Within the next 5 weeks both TNA and the WWE will have two of their biggest PPVs of the year. In WWE's case, it is not only their biggest PPV, but it's the most popular and well known PPV in pro wrestling history. However, if you look at the two PPVS, and the rosters for each company, it appears that TNA has surpassed the WWE in roster depth and quality. Current TNA tag-team champion Robert Roode certainly believes so. According to a March 1st, 2013 report by WrestlingInc.com, Roode made the following comments about TNA's depth during a radio appearance on The Big WrestleShark Show:
"I think you can compare our roster to anybody in the world. I mean when you look at the guys like Austin Aries and Zema Ion who just came in. Even the guys who are really untapped in their character, like Robbie E., I think we have such depth in our locker room and it's only going to get better. Once these guys mature and get a little more spotlight…I don't think anyone in the world can touch our roster."
There's certainly room to debate whose roster has more depth and quality. However, if you take a serious look, TNA appears to have a more favorable roster. If you take away the WWE's marketing machine, TNA's roster is better at this point and time. TNA has a better tag-team division, women's division, X-division talent and more depth at the main event level. They have some of the best wrestlers in the world, some of the most exciting, and some of the greatest of all-time.
I think TNA is finally getting into a solid rhythm creatively. You definitely can't say the same thing about the WWE. They appear to be creatively dysfunctional outside of Cena, Rock, Lesnar and CM Punk. As I've stated before, WrestleMania 29 appears to be a major letdown, however, TNA's LockDown has more intrigue and possibilities for future storylines.
