IMPACT WRESTLING officially announced the signing of X-Division star Austin Aries, in what company officials are signaling as the first of several upcoming signees to a reinvigorated X-Division following the success of Sunday night’s “Destination X” live pay-per-view event. If you missed it, watch the replay of the “Destination X” event on your cable or satellite provider!

Aries, who will officially be joining the X-Division roster Thursday night on IMPACT WRESTLING (9pm ET/PT on Spike) earned a contract by winning a four-way match against hopefuls Low Ki, Zema Ion and Jack Evans in an unbelievable bout; IMPACT ZONE fans began a chant of “Sign them all!” after Aries took the win that went worldwide with a #SignThemAll trending topic across Twitter.

“Austin’s unique style and intensity will be a great addition to the X Division,” TNA Vice President of Talent Relations Bruce Prichard said. “Aries brings an arrogance and a confidence backed by tremendous physical ability.”

In addition to Aries signing, Prichard added, “based off of various X Division performances throughout qualifying events on IMPACT WRESTLING and Sunday night’s outstanding “Destination X” pay-per-view, TNA will be signing several new additions to the X-Division roster in coming weeks.

“Our goal now is to reinvent and redefine the X-Division as something unique to all of pro wrestling,” Prichard said.

As for potential new X-Division Superstars, Prichard said that both former and new X-Division names are currently being considered, and that the evaluation will be ongoing.

    Bruce Pritchard is the man! Although you are going to have to put up with Hulk Hogan because Pritchard and Hogan are great friends.

    If TNA is serious about re branding the X-Division. TNA X-Division will blow away anything that ROH has to offer!

  3. yanni says:

    Oh, another thing:

    Obviously they are going to sign Zema Ion and Low Ki.

    BUT, Jack Evans is under contract with Triple AAA, that is a big problemn where TNA has to deal with their promoters who will want a buyout of Evans’ contract.

  4. Really? says:

    They don’t have to sign Jack Evans to an exclusive contract to book him for some matches. They can just “borrow” him sometimes the way that AAA “borrowed” Hernandez, Jeff Jarrett, RVD, etc.

  5. Jose says:

    TNA & AAA have a working agreement.
