Update on Austin Aries & The X-Division Title

Austin Aries updated fans on putting his X-Division Championship title on the line at the Destination pay-per-view via Twitter. Here is what was said.

“To be clear: I will vacate my X-Division Championship for a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Destination X. HOWEVER…. I will officially keep my (X Division) title until July 8th, the day of the PPV, to keep my collateral and guard against being left empty handed……if shenanigans try to prevent my World Title shot, like @REALBobbyRoode catching Chickenpox or excessively pulling his groin until blind.”

The update was then retweeted by the official TNA account.

    @scooter jerry lynn isnt retiring hes part of the extreme reunion thing,i didnt even know lowki was in new japan tho,jack evans vs austin aries would be great tho,petey williams does need to come back asap i havent seen him in foreverrrr

  • scooter

    Jerry lynn is retiring, Low Ki’s making more money in new japan, Jack would be cool for one ultimate x but he’s really just a spot monkey however Petey williams should be brought back ASAP!

  • ant

    they better bring in jack evans,petey williams,jerry lynn,low ki,and others for this ppv cuz its gonna be hard to top last years destination x ppv

    It sucks that his title reign is going to end like this, especially since it seems like Roode won’t lose the title until Storm wins the BFG Series.

    I mean, the concept of being an X-Division division champion leading to a possible World title shot is cool.

    However, I really thought Aries’ title reign was one of the best title reigns in all of wrestling (besides Punk) in a long time, and it sucks he probably won’t win the World title. It should be a phenomenal match, and hopefully they’ll give him more shots as a Main Eventer from here on out.

    ULTIMATE X with atleast 6 competitors at Destination X!

  • Tom… Just Tom

    He said he will keep the title UNTIL the PPV. That still leaves a possibility of the Ultimate X match being for the X division title.

    so does that mean we wont get a tournament to crown a new tna x division champion? 🙁
