Re: X division could do with a revamp

King and Ion are both really really good workers and have tons of charisma and are decent actors, they just need a little help to rebuild the division.

Re: X division could do with a revamp

I think York will win the belt soon.I think he has potential.He has a interesting character but just has to figure out what his mic style is.Really new so its fine.

Re: X division could do with a revamp

the x division is clearly wek right now. they are building king and york, but other then that it is very thin. they have ion who is ok and sorrenson will be back this year, sabin too(id rather see tna bring back shelly and get mcmg back in the tag division tho), but they need to bring back/bring in some top wrestlers.

petey williams is suppose to be at the xtravaganza 1 night only ppv, bring him back full time.

roderick strong w/truth would be a good move for tna imo too. truth can do the talking while roddy kills it in the ring.

and the 1 guy tna should have signed for the x division is now stuck in the hell hole known as wwe. oh well.

kenny king
zema ion
christian york
petey williams
chris sabin
roderick strong
jesse sorrenson

that be a good looking x division for 2013.



AJ Styles vs Austin Aries happens ON TV[X]
TNA sign the Briscoes[]
TNA host a ppv in NY or NJ[]
Velvet Sky and Angelina Love reunite[X]
a new TNA game is announced[]
Kurt Angle vs Samoa Joe happens 1 more time[X]

Re: X division could do with a revamp

You can have all of the young hybrid talent in the world on your roster. Means nothing if the booking for the division is crap. Until that improves, the roster - current or fantasy - is moot.

Sabin was there in 2012. Let us not forget this, people. They did nothing with him then. Maybe I'm jaded, but I don't see why they would do something with him now.

Re: X division could do with a revamp

They really need to do something for ALL the divisions. This is maybe me but it looks like they have only 4 guys for each division

X-Division : Kenny King, Christian York, RVD, Zema Ion

Knockout : Tessmacher, Tara, Mickie James, Gail Kim ( Well, you can probably add Velvet now )

Tag Team : Bad Influence, Roode & Aries, Hernandez & Chavo, Ryan & Morgan

I say add a mask guy also like Jigsaw, Puma, or Samuray Del Sol. Some more people that would be good is Chuck Taylor, Johnny Gargano, or Rich Swann. Also I would like to see some more international talents.

I wouldn't mind seeing Anthony Nese, Jay Lethal, or Brian Kendrick as the heel coming back.

Don't forget Rockstar Spud.

Re: X division could do with a revamp

As fun as Roddy and Ricochet are to watch in the ring, neither of them should ever be allowed near a mic. While a manager can help mask those deficiencies, it really does limit the amount of places you can go with a character. I'm not sure TNA wants guys who have limited speaking ability either. Don't get me wrong, I think they would do really well and get over solely based on ring work - but could they carry the division with the belt, which would require them to speak more often? I'm not sure.

In addition to King, Ion, York & Spud currently healthy, we can pencil in Sabin and Sorenson when they come back from injury. I think Gargano would be an excellent addition since he can work AND talk. Also, Chuck Taylor would be an interesting addition and he might be the single funniest guy in wrestling right now... his personality would be great on TV if given the opportunity. And although Joey Ryan is teaming with Matt Morgan at the moment, he could slide into an X-Division slot as well.

I think eight guys is probably the ideal number of roster spots, but they still would have a hard time featuring everyone on a regular basis. That is going to be an issue for TNA moving forward - how do you showcase everyone on the roster effectively? Guys like Morgan & Ryan aren't featured every week, so they need to find a balance there.

Maybe some interpromotional feuds from Impact can carry over to DGUSA and vice versa. Gabe Sapolsky can suggest how to go about booking the X-Division feuds.
1- Dave Lagana does not require pointers or advice from Gabe about how to book the XD. Nothing against Gabe, but Dave could book the XD feuds if given the chance. Both he and Conway can pitch ideas until they are blue in the face but everything comes down to BP and whether he will go forward with the ideas being pitched.

2- DGUSA isn't likely to work a talent share deal as TNA would have to allow their talent to appear on iPPV and DVD releases. If TNA wants DGUSA talent they will have to outright sign them to their roster.

We can likely forget Gargano as he opted not to go to the E and stay on the indies for the time being so I doubt TNA has a chance. As for who TNA should look at :

-Chuck Taylor : X-division or Tag division perhaps paired with a TNA vet like Eric Young.

-AR Fox : X-Division

-Rich Swann : X-Division or pair him with Willie Mack for the Tag division.

-Samuray Del Sol : Perfect XD talent. Gives them a masked luchador whom they can market as well.

-Uhaa Nation : Perfect for Gut Check and can and should be sent to OVW for a short stint before making a main roster debut.

Outside of DGUSA they should also be looking at ACH and obviously Scorpio Sky.

One would have to think BP is the problem not the writers. As TV had not been given to the division to allow for characters and stories to develop and grow. But I could be wrong.

As for Sabin, I think you are forgetting how his 2012 went down. He came back from his injury and started back with MCMG before Alex left. Then he got a TV match with Aries after being shelved for a month (some rumors he had tweaked his knee unsure of the validity of that) before being placed in the 3way UX match where he tore his other ACL. Never really got a chance to get anything done with him.

But Bischoff did call him a pro's pro on Twitter after the Roode segment. Perhaps creative will have a new found respect for Chris once he is ready to go in 2013.

I think if they kept Kenny, Ryan, Zema and Sabin plus added SDS plus 1-2 of the following ACH/Swann/Fox/Scorpio Sky/Chuck Taylor they'd be set. The XD likely can't be bigger than 6-7 permanent guys or else there will be too many guys getting paid to sit at home. You have Robbie E, Doug Williams and Kaz as guys who can be worked in both the XD and TV Title mixes. I don
