IT'S OFFICIAL - THE RETURN OF THE INNOVATIVE ULTIMATE X ON JANUARY 16
Petey Williams to defend X Title - Opponents to be named
TNAwrestling.com has learned from the office of Director of Authority Dusty Rhodes that the
innovative high-wire Ultimate X Match will return to TNA live on January 16 at Final Resolution!
That night, X Division Champion and the master of the Canadian Destroyer Petey Williams will
defend the gold against two opponents yet to be named by the Director of Authority.
Called the most innovative match in professional wresting in the last decade, the Ultimate X Match features two giant steel cables crossing high above the ring, with the X Title hanging from the center. Four steel girders surround the ring, holding the structure in place. The first X superstar to successfully scale the girders, cross the cables and pull down the gold walks out the champion!
The Ultimate X Match made its historic debut in TNA in August 2003 and quickly became one of the
most popular matches in wrestling. When asked to comments, Team Canada coach Scott D'Amore was livid, claiming bias by Rhodes against his Canadian squad. When asked about Petey's lone Ultimate X experience - a lose in the World X Cup Ultimate X against Hector Garza and Chris Sabin - the champion and his coach refused to comment. Regardless, the Director of Authority has ordered Williams to compete in the Ultimate X on January 16. Who will Rhodes select to face Williams for the X gold? The X Division is thriving with the top high-flyers in wrestling, including names like Chris Sabin, Kid Kash, Sonjay Dutt, Michael Shane and Kazarian and even The Phenomenal AJ Styles!
