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.
Jericho would take a bullet for me.
Kurt Angle; Bryan Danielson; Nigel McGuinness; Samoa Joe
Prince Devitt; Teddy Hart; Paul London; Low Ki; PAC
