Cage won the X Division title from Matt Sydal at Slammiversary in July. Option C was invented in 2012 by Austin Aries and allows the current X Division Champion to vacate the title in order to get a match with the current IMPACT World Champion. Option C has not been mentioned since 2016 and was originally intended to be used prior to Destination X.
