New Impact Wrestling X-Division champion Low Ki said he is ready to help further mold the division as a long-time veteran.
In an interview with Vulture Hound, Low Ki said he is happy to be back with the promotion and wants to help the promotion in this current rebranding.
"It’s important for me to be a focal part in the redevelopment of Impact, I’ve been a focal part since the beginning," Low Ki said. "I’ve been influential in its construction since the beginning. So now I have the opportunity at a different stage in my career, with more wisdom, more knowledge, more experience. It’s a fun position to be in because just coming from experience I understand the different generations of TNA, and now I can pinpoint certain things that we couldn’t in the past, of which to avoid, which to approach ultimately just improve so that the audience can enjoy it."
Low Ki has been a part of the inaugural X-Division roster, challenging for the title in 2002, when it first debuted. He also wrestled in the promotion's first ever television episode and said it is now an exciting time for the rest of the X-Division to start making a name for themselves.
"Well, it's important because I was for since its inception," Low Ki said. "The X-Division was originally based off of me, AJ Styles, Jerry Lynn and also Psychosis. And to be on top again is hard, it doesn’t get any easier as you get older, this is quite a physical art. So matching up against these type of competitors and still being able to hold my own, these guys are getting better every generation because their conditioning and their health is improving early in their careers, so it’s not the case going into previous generations where you can see the development of the body and ultimately what they turn into, instead performers are actually coming in well conditioned which is a different approach than the past, so now you’re facing a higher caliber of atheism and it's very difficult to keep up with at times, you got guys like Dezmond Xavier who goes all over the place and kinda reminds me similarly of Amazing Red when he came to TNA in 2002 when the stuff he was doing then was blowing everybody away, and its fun, because its another generation of hungry competitors, they are going through what we went through. It’s now their time coming up, they are chomping at the bit to make a name for themselves and to make everyone know that they belong. It’s definitely an exciting time."
Low Ki won the title, now his fifth reign, on a recent episode of Impact Wrestling when he defeated Trevor Lee, Andrew Everett, Suicide, Sonjay Dutt, and Dezmond Xavier in a 6 Way Match and has defended the title in the recent set of tapings.
