Reviving the X-Division
I think the X-Division has gotten stale and doesn't have the star power it once had. Austin Aries looked like a true champion basically due to a lack of competition and lack of personalities. Right now I think TNA needs to make some changes. The division basically consists of 3 people.
Zema Ion: They need to push him more as the kid who deliberately injured Jesse Sorenson and just didn't care.
Sonjay Dutt: He hasn't done anything for me since he's come back.
Kenny King: He's best suited for the tag team division.

I think TNA needs to add:
Damian Slater: The kid is gold down in Australia and unlike alot of indy darlings he would translate into the mainstream.
Fergal "Prince" Devitt: As his theme song proclaims "He's the best around"
Kenny Omega: One of the best performers in Japan.
Ricochet: He's a rehabilated spot monkey who is adding more actually wrestling moves to his arsenal.
Shawn Spears: He was great in OVW before they brought him into ECW as Gavin Spears and basically gave him nothing to work with, Good personality, mic skills and just a good all around heel.

Re: Reviving the X- Division
I would agree, the x-division needs to be brought back alive it would add way more to the show.

These are the people that should be on TNA's radar for the x-division:
Adam Cole: He is a real good heel and could be what the x-division needs to bring it back up.
Fergal Devitt
El Generico
Tommaso Ciampa
Sami Callihan
Chuck Taylor
AR Fox
Johnny Gargano
Akira Tozawa
Samuray Del Sol

Re: Reviving the X-Division
Prince Devitt - don't think they can afford him but obviously he has to be one of the very top targets for any X Division revamp. Pretty much the top junior heavyweight/cruiserweight in the world who hasn't had considerable North American exposure and would likely be over like a million bucks (i.e. rules out Japanese/Mexican workers, in general).

Low Ki - tremendous worker. He can do things that almost no-one else with national exposure can (or would be allowed to; see: Bryan Danielson). He can work cruiserweight, strong style, submissions etc. He's already been part of the X Division and could help redefine it all over.

AR Fox, Ricochet, and Jack Evans - I've placed these three together because I do consider them to be largely spot monkeys. There is room for that in the X Division however.

RVD, AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, Jeff Hardy - they're all with TNA, and are being pushed to varying degrees. I think with their status within the company (and, in the case of RVD and Hardy, worldwide name recognition) any one of these guys could have feuds within the X Division to elevate the division and the younger guys in it.

Dragon Gate - TNA would do well to poach guys from here from time to time, even just to keep the X Divsion roster fresh. Doi and Yoshino, for instance, have appeared in TNA before.

I should note that they completely missed the ball with PAC. He could have been such a star in the X Division.

If anyone can ever manage his clear mental problems, Teddy Hart.

And if they feel the need to do the whole WWF-fanboy recruitment policy, John Hennigan/Nitro/Morrison.

I guess this is what you were trying to do.

Re: Reviving the X-Division
Yeah, that match was what really got me into TNA!

Dutt has really impressed me this time around. And King has a lot of potential. But a handful of guys does not a division make. They definitely need more. Low Ki is great, but doesn't he have quite a bad reputation backstage? I could be wrong, but I heard he's a bit of a nightmare to work with which is one of the reasons he doesn't get used much by TNA.

Re: Reviving the X-Division
Fergal Devitt and Kenny Omega are winning good $$$ in japan, there's no way in hell they are going to accept a shitty TNA undercard contract.
So if you want them prichard, you better show them the $$$.

Now with that being said OVW exists for a reason:
- Chris Silvio
- Sam Shaw
- Alex Silva
- Jamin Olivencia

Re: Reviving the X-Division
They definitely need some new talents to fill out the X Roster.
