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.
