Is The TNA Knockout's Division the New X Division?

Tyler WilliamsAnalyst IIIFebruary 24, 2009

With the current releases of Petey Williams and Sonjay Dutt, and new additions to the Knockout division, it now seems that TNA has place their focus on the Knockout division. When TNA first started it was about the "It's not about weight limits, it's about no limits."

The X division brought a breeze a fresh air and it was something new as you saw big, medium, and small goes do high flying moves and excite the crowd. But it seems now those days have passed and a new era has begun. That era is the Knockout era where there is "No divas here" as there moto and has become TNA's new golden project.

With new KO's pouring in and more matches being added, and getting better main event status matches than the X division, the Knockout division has been dominate. It even shows in the ratings as some of the KO matches have been the main draw on some Impact episodes.

I believe the X division started going down once Team 3D got involved and lost the feud against MCMG that determined that there will be a weight limit on the division. After that the division just seemed blah and just a regular cruiserweight division.

But I still have something on my mind as why TNA would let go of Petey and Dutt. Are the going to bring in new X division wrestler's that will revive the X division? All I know is they need to do something.
