I also didn't find anything wrong with the quartet, agreed. I'm not a fan of the Option C deal because, well, it's their only midcard title, EVERY year they cash it in for the WHC... you know, it's just that seeing what Lethal has done with his midcard title makes me believe that midcard titles can matter (not that I want the X champ to arguably be the top champ, but you got the point). Also, it's never built well. I agree that Spud is the best babyface promo today, so yes, it was better this time, but last year for example it was pretty bad (Aries just randomly won the belt to job for the 2nd time), and even this year KK won the belt, had NO defenses, Spud had one week's build... just really not a fan of the overall concept and how they do it every time. I would've preferred they did it that one time with Aries and that was it.You know how I am with mid-card belts, but I'm happy that it's always given up for Option C. Makes the World TItle more valuable, I usually just hate the "drama" that goes with it. I didn't buy that Sabin wanted to keep the X-Title, a belt he's held many times... but only I'd know that as the ultimate Sabin fanboy and self-deprecating jackass who'll bait the shit out of Aids - and I CERTAINLY didn't buy it with Austin Aries last year... But this year? With Spud's passionate promos about how he spent 15 years, busting his ass on the indies just to get to this point, and how winning the X-Title was a dream come true... I believed him. Because Rockstar Spud is the best babyface in all of pro wrestling, hell I'd take him over Sami Zayn or Whoever's Facing Cena at this point. And because I believed it it made his "I'm cashing in BECAUSE FUCK YOU THAT'S WHY" reasoning faneffingtastic. He actually could get that bullshit of losing the title to Kenny King for no reason over.
Also, screw B&V for hating the barbershop quartet. That was money
One thing that annoys me is when guys DON'T successfully cash in Feast or Fired though. So often, the people who win those "good" briefcases wind up doing nothing in the end and it hurts the concept.
Why put the big world title match on PPV? I mean, if they were going to do that wouldn't it be easier to have Spud/Angle on Destination X and then put the Aries match on PPV? I mean, I really shouldn't be surprised though, TNA doesn't really care about PPVs all that much for a long time.Speaking of Slammiversary, they've announced EC3 vs Angle has been pulled from the PPV and will air on the July 1 Impact.

can't wait for you to react to that one, Leo. Guess they thought the James Storm angle was SO great that it's ME worthy.
Crusader... The easy answer is "Well they're throw him in some 6-man X-Division garbage" but... Ya know, I wish they'd add an extra rule onto Option C saying "If you cash the belt in you can't go for the X-Division Title for another six months"
In theory sticking him with the Rising seems like such a waste, but he does have so much history with Ki and Kenny. A promo battle with MVP on the go-home show would be nice hype and will get a few streams, yeah
Best answer gets a like:Why put the big world title match on PPV? I mean, if they were going to do that wouldn't it be easier to have Spud/Angle on Destination X and then put the Aries match on PPV?

It hasn't been bad thus far, I'm four matches in, onto Aries vs Richards now and I feel like this'll be MOTN. It's also A Double's goodbye match, so... This'll be enjoyable, I am sure.Feel free, bro!
I forgot all about Slammiversary.
