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.
Ricochet
Fergal Devitt
El Generico
TPJ/Puma
Tommaso Ciampa
Sami Callihan
Chuck Taylor
AR Fox
Johnny Gargano
CIMA
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.

Jericho would take a bullet for me.

Kurt Angle; Bryan Danielson; Nigel McGuinness; Samoa Joe
Prince Devitt; Teddy Hart; Paul London; Low Ki; PAC

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



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Re: Reviving the X-Division

They definitely need some new talents to fill out the X Roster.
