No matter who u sign, you are not solving the root of the problem for X Div

The MAIN problem: X division stars are no longer given time for promos and feuds. They need time to talk. In the past, 80% of feuds were X-Div stars.

Means that Current TNA Management (Hogan included), looks down on the X Division and does not think they can draw.

Give them promo time. Let them write stories. Create you own TNA brand. Period.

Re: No matter who u sign, you are not solving the root of the problem for X Div

It was basically the same shit during the "golden years" of the x division. The big difference was that because of the amount of classic matches and talent they had, TNA was forced to give them a bigger spot.
It's a snowball effect, if they get the right talent, exposure will come. Aries always got mic time during his x division run.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

But they can also get the right talent and just throw them in 3 minute spot fests with no meaning.

The big problem is they focus too much on the Aces and Eights and that takes too much time away from letting people in the X div wrestle. The need to tone it down with Aces and Eights big time.

thats the main storyline dude!
one big storyline is better than a bunch of miniature feuds (see WWE)

Mod note: Do not put this shit back in your sig. If you do you'll be banned. No need for baiting here.

My note: Oh gee. Cant people stand up for themselves without mod support?

But the main story line is getting OLD! I'm bored with the Aces and Eights. Time for something new, they are too much like the NWO, too old school. But the main thing is the Aces and Eights and dragging on and on, the same thing every week. They interfere with matches and thats about it. They are played out more than Claire.

So... You missed the whole RVD/ Kenny King rivalry where there were segments, promos, back stage interviews?

You missed the whole angle that brought Joey Ryan into the company and X-Division?

The whole angle made out of Zema Ion breaking that one guy's neck?

There are problems with the x-division, but segments, promos, and the like are not the problem. The problem is the basic story lines like in the knockouts division. Only the main event gets story lines with swerves, big profile matches, and so on.

All that's old, we rarely see Ryan anymore sadly, same with Zema Ion, got to let all the lame Aces and Eights members have the spotlight.

Kenny King is the lamest champ they've had, no personality or he would be on there every week.
