After seeing that match, for the next ten years I never missed a pay-per-view, television show, and attended numerous tapings, as I only lived six hours from Orlando. I would take trips to Orlando on a regular basis for one purpose only, to see TNA Impact live and in person. However, as the focus on the X Division began to wane, so has my interest in Total Nonstop Action and Impact. Gone are names like AJ Styles, Austin Aries, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Samoa Joe, Chris Sabin, Low-Ki, Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, Amazing Red, and other X Division legends. Over the years, these legends have been replaced by names like Orlando Jordan, The Nasty Boys, Grado, Chris Melendez, Black Reign, Rellik, and others who pale in comparison to their X-Division counterparts. No longer was Total Nonstop Action defined by the death-defying X-Division but by silly cartoon characters.
As I see ratings continue to slip over the years for TNA, people are asking what the solution is. To me the answer is clear and simple, restore the X-Division to its former glory. I believe that putting a strong emphasis on the X-Division once again. With stars like Tigre Uno, Trevor Lee, Andrew Everett, Zema Ion, and Mark Andrews, the foundation is solid. Simply add a couple more independent stars and actually give them time to develop characters and have the phenomenal matches they are capable of, and the X Division can be restored to glory once again. Simply put, I believe in the power of the X-Division.
Nothing would make me happier as a fan than to see Total Nonstop Action climb to prominence once again. Become the staple of excitement you once were, rather than the butt of the joke that you have become to so many. If a triple ladder match could win over a seventeen year old in 2002, I believe that young and old fans alike can be won over once again by the incredible display of athleticism that can only be found in the X-Division. It's time for the X-Division to be synonymous with TNA once again. It's time for TNA to once again become the home of the best wrestling on the planet through the X-Division. It's time for a revival in wrestling. It's time for a revival in Total Nonstop Action. It's time to revive and restore the X-Division.
