Dakota Darsow vs. Rubix vs. Lars Only vs. Mason Andrews
This is the last chance fourway, with the winner getting into the X Division tournament. I really feel like they did not have enough time to introduce all of these guys and be able to have the crowd connect with all of them. This match will be full of athleticism and skill, but the personal connection from the crowd will not be there. I expect a lot of TNA chants because this is what the company based itself on years ago. The speed and high spots will carry the match, and I feel like the
X Division Tournament
We have a nice combination of youth and veteran presense here. I will immediately eliminate Kid Kash because he does not need this championship. I want him to become the mentor and show these younger talent the ropes. Douglas Williams would be a really good choice because he is a proven winner and someone who owns his craft. I really think that they needed that ONE more big name to enter this tournament. If you bring someone in that the crowd is accustomed to seeing win, have them get upset, and really build your next X Division star. Overall, I expect this tournament to take up a lot of time on the PPV. Winner: Zema Ion. I want Ion to win because he has a unique look and can be someone the company can build bigger storylines with. The cocky attitude he possesses and the athleticism is better than any of the other guys in this match. You let Ion win the X Division title, he can easily be the face of the new X Division. He has so much to gain over other guys like Sonjay, Rashad, and Kenny King. He is established to a point, but has not come full circle yet. He has been in matches with Sabin, Aries, and the bigger stars. He has held his own and has used his creative offense to stay fresh in the ring.
Winner: Zema Ion
