Re: X division could do with a revamp
The x division is a mess. I'm sorry to be that blunt, but this was the stuff I came around to watching TNA for in the beginning. What they've decided to concentrate on recently has pushed what I like into the background. Now, I'm not saying they've necessarily made bad decisions – folks pretty much across the board here have been praising Impact for rediscovering coherent watch-ability – but they've decided to neglect my precious x division and that makes me sad.
It could be fixed with a little love and attention (So could the knockouts division, but that's another topic altogether...). There's no need, right now, to bring in international talent. There's nothing to bring them to. Assign the proper, already-on-the-roster talents to the x division and keep them there without making it seem like a demotion – that would be a good start. And yes, I know RVD has name recognition, and I can see that he's woken up a bit since they put him in the title-holder role, but please remove him and put someone with a faster, more exciting style in his place. Get matches with the right kind of moves to showcase what the division is all about on Impact more often. Then start hiring guys who are available, flexible about when they'll work and who have experience with x division talent and techniques.
