Exactly why does it have to be about flppy flop to be good ? Austin Aries is the best example of how the division should be. Very competitive division with aggressive wrestling. Which it should always lead to option C.

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
It's not hard to give the X-Division time to shine. It was done for years before within the company. Even during the hour long shows. If they're serious about it, then it won't be hard for them to put emphasis back.

Well see, rumors. That's all they are. Either he tweaked his knee or they had zero to do with him. He's been planted as purely a tag worker ever since joining up with Shelley. So I've long let the singles success days of Sabin fly on by. Now if they're serious about using him again, then great. Only fuck the X-Division if they want to use him. That division sucks right now and gets no exposure. If they want to use Sabin then bump him up the card. He's not getting any younger. Size isn't any issue within TNA. X-Division workers has risen through the ranks towards the upper card. Give Sabin a shot in a real capacity. Not a loose cog in the mist of a lackluster X-Division.

I have zero faith in any restoration of said division - hence why I completely skipped over it if Sabin was going to get some form of a "push".

I don't know, guys; to me, the biggest issue with the x-division is the booking. The talent is there – guys like King, Sabin (when he returns to tv), EY, Kash, even Ion is improving huge amounts, wasn't there talk about Puma; what happened there? – they just aren't being used to their full potential.

I loved last year's Division X ppv. There wasn't a lot of talking or build for the folks who came in just for the event, but someone like Rubix/Jigsaw doesn't always need that. I know that TNA has moved strongly in favour of those who can entertain beyond in ring. Overall, that is not a negative; it's given people like Chris Daniels, Kaz, Aries and Bully a chance to shine like they've never had before and that's all good. The x division, though, hasn't really blossomed under this format, partly because the division's best mic talents are either not the strongest wrestlers, are working in tag teams only or have been bumped into the ME scene.

I'm enthusiastic about the specials. Six-sides and tournaments is what my idea of x division is all about. I like the flippy guys, I like the fast paced big tricks and strange characters. I'm not sure something like that fits into TNA's current direction, at least not where they're taking Impact.

If I were considering signing full time (as opposed to show-by-show, as needed basis) wrestlers who would potentially be featured in x division matches, I'd want ones who are fast and flippy but also strong talkers. Promo guys with acting chops. Why? Because, firstly, they need to be able to hold their own on an increasingly talky wrestling show. And secondly, but just as important, this could be the chance for some more smaller, slightly overlooked talents to grab a shot at the spotlight Aries, Kaz and Daniels style.

There is no denying the fact that it is not hard to put emphasis back on the division. The onus is on TNA for not doing more or knowing what to cut to properly keep the division relevant over the last year. There will be zero excuses from here on out as with more time in between PPV's there is ample time to build to every match on one of the big 4 and to allow characters and stories to develop and grow.

There was a 6 week period from the Lockdown match to his singles match with Aries when they went live. I would guess the real story was he was held off TV while they tried to retain Shelley and when they failed, creative was forced to shift his direction. I don't think they really failed Sabin in 2012, I think the issue is they failed Shelley in 2011-2012 which in turn caused them to spurn Sabin.

Somebody f'd up by not realizing what they had in Shelley who should have been the guy to feud with Aries once the Kendrick feud ended.

Exactly. Hopefully once we see where the division goes with this year these kinds of redundant threads will stop. Either they'll do something with it or they won't.

And the thing with Sabin was all kinds of bleh. Only supports my point of saying (and knowing) the only intended purpose for him now was as a tag team worker. Once Shelley was gone, all plans for him went up in smoke. Then another injury came. Completely ruining ANY chance of a comeback for 2012. I'm frustrated by both. I'm not going to try and beat around the bush here. I'll admit it.
