Spoiler: New TNA X Division Champion Crowned At Friday’s Impact Wrestling Tapings In NYC

As PWMania.com reported in earlier spoiler reports, Austin Aries gave up his TNA X Division Title to receive a World Heavyweight Title shot against Bobby Lashley at the Destination X tapings.

Samoa Joe, Sanada and Low Ki won qualifying matches on the July 31st taping to earn a right to compete for the vacant X Division Title on the August 7th taping in a three-way. That match took place tonight in New York City and Joe won to begin his 5th reign with the title.

Below is a photo of Joe with the title:

  • Dave Macleod

    Well, so much for that 225lbs weight limit to X-Division stars.

    • Michael Duberry

      That’s not been in effect for nearly a year now. Joe competed in the X division at BFG last year. I suppose it gives Joe something to do, but it highlights that the bookers have no idea how to treat a talent like Joe.
