It was probably just given to Devon so he could have something shiny to carry around, make him look more important.

Don't worry, that title will have more prestige than it's ever had once Aries or Roode wins it in their quest to claim all the gold.

They really should do away with it and make up a new one, idgaf what it's called but this title has been held by Devon twice, Robbie E, was made initially by Booker T, and has no prestige to it any more. It just feels like a heavy pile of trash with some painted plastic all over it. Worthless.

Not gonna lie, this is pretty much truth right here.

However, it might be less worthless than any other current TNA title with the exception of the World and Tag belts. And the exception for the Tag belts is really only conditional.

Eh, the X-Division title has been held by Aries, Ion, and RVD in the past.

Not the best, but I'd rather that list than Devon twice and Joe. And I think the Knockouts title gets featured more. Couldn't they have at least made the Devon/Park match for the title? Maybe Devon agreeing to give Park a shot at the title since he's too weak to defeat him? Simple tactic but it would have at least made the title seem somewhat relevant. :/

At a certain point it stops mattering who had the title before because you have to look at (a) who has it now, and (b) who is likely to have it in the future. The TV title division, by design, can include anyone, but the X-Division is down to bare bones right now and not likely to get any better any time soon since Dixie has apparently decided it's the X-Division's fault people get hurt, rather than, oh, I don't know, THE WAY THE FUCKING SPORT WORKS. Anyways, if she's going to continue to de-emphasize and punish the division because she doesn't understand the business, she may as well scrap the title now, because having it on RVD is a joke and it's only going to get worse from here (see: Christian fucking York). TNA clearly has no interest in pushing actual X-division style wrestling so Ion is fucked unless he can get his character over like Robbie E sort of did.

The TV title at least COULD theoretically get put on someone interesting in the future. Is it likely to? No, of course not. If that were going to happen, it would have happened by now. But at least there is a division with people in it to pick from and possible matches to have. I do think it would be better at this point to just have Devon trash the title in some sort of dumbass futile "fuck you TNA" gesture of disrespect, and then debut a new midcard belt, call it whatever the hell you want, after Lockdown. However, the division itself is just fine. All they need to do is have some sort of consistency as far as remembering (a) the new belt exists, and (b) whatever the rules for defending it are, and then (c) actually follow them as much as possible.

Honestly, TNA doesn't need to have a belt that gets defended every single week. Their roster really isn't stacked enough for it, without demoting main event players to pointless TV title matches that would necessarily have to end in DQ since you can't have your main eventers job to your mid carders, and no one wants to see Robbie E v. Devon every week for three months straight again, that was terrible. Just have a normal midcard belt and defend it every 3-4 weeks. Not that hard.

TNA has been getting somewhat better with consistency lately. Obviously they haven't solved all their consistency problems, I'm not suggesting that, but I do think at this point they might be capable of creating and maintaining a midcard belt and a midcard belt division if they start it from scratch. They're clearly about as motivated to create storylines and matches for the TV title as we are to see it, which is pretty much not at all, so all in all, yeah, enough is enough.

TL;DR: Have Devon trash the thing to defy TNA, create a new midcard belt after Lockdown, be more consistent this time.

The tv title needs a revamp
either make it defended every week - the concept when the title was made or give it some sort of power - i.e 5 minutes of tv time each week - one segment to the holder.

Imagine some mid carder gets the tv title and is guaranteed 5 minutes of tv time to get over or some power hungry group like aces can use it to hijack a whole segment to promote themselves.
Robbie E gets the tv title and has himself dance for 5 minutes weekly getting more and more heat and has the fans hating him own the title wanting him to lose it etc.

Ex heavyweight champs will be gunning for the belt to get back in the title pic and someone like AJ when he comes back could use it to diss tna and dixie.

Either that or give the title holder the ability to cash it in once per year for a title shot if they defend it X times.

Default Re: TV Title?

because wwe don't have one and much like the ko tag titles tna just can't bring themselves to retire any belts it seems

EDIT: and because they don't consider the x title as a midcard belt as apposed to just a token cruiserweight title, a place for the smaller guys to rot,that didnt really work out so well in wcw either
