You're basically just guessing stuff and hoping it's correct. Just stop dude.
The X-Division has always been bigger than the Cruiserweight Division. It does draw to an extent, people recognize and respect the athleticism and skill needed to do things like the stuff that AJ Styles does. And that last part is completely incorrect and has nothing to do with the discussion.
Like I said, just try to take some time off of posting and just watch a few matches and stuff before guessing shit. Zema and KK average in the ring? Christian York terrible? wut.
Mic skills can rub off on others. Yes Bashir was Hassan's manager for less than a year, We don't know what Daivari was learning from Hassan in that time, that he could've been using to adapt his own Sheik Abdul Bashir character. Also with Kofi, 1. He's never even given time to talk & 2. Since when have Kofi or Punk been best friends? They don't even have the same character as Hassan & Daivari.
Hassan & Daivari have the exact same character. It's the same Anti-American schtik that has been going on since the days of Iron Sheik, except in this case its Arab-Americans who after 9/11 feel they have been discriminated against by Americans as terrorists. Maybe the execution of the gimmick may be different but at the core, Daivari & Hassan have the exact same gimmick.
The X-Division doesn't draw. Has it ever increased a bump in ratings? Gotten more money for TNA? Brought in more of an audience for TNA? That is the actual definition of draw. Has it done any of those things since the first few years of TNA?
And yes the last part has to do with the discussion, You wanted to compare that the X-Division is better than the CW Division, when the likes of Benoit, Malenko, Jericho, Guerrero, Mysterio, & Jushin Liger are better than most of the guys to step foot in the X-Division.
I never said Zema & KK, were average? I said they were in decent, which can easily be taken as good but not great. I personally feel King should've been X-Division Champion, a year ago, during Destination X time. And yes I still find York to be bad. See no appeal in him.
