Destination X (2013) (aka Impact Wrestling: Destination X) was a professional wrestling event produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), which took place on July 18 at the Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Kentucky. It was the ninth event under the Destination X chronology. Unlike the previous events, this event was not held on pay-per-view (PPV) and was instead featured as a special edition of TNA's weekly broadcast of Impact Wrestling.[7] The episode aired on a two-hour tape delay.[8]

Background[edit]

Destination X featured professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.

On January 11, 2013, TNA announced that there would only be four PPVs in 2013, dropping Destination X as a PPV. However during Slammiversary XI on June 2, 2013, after the Ultimate X Match where Chris Sabin won the X Division Championship, TNA general manager Hulk Hogan announced that just like in 2012, the reigning X Division champion would have the option to voluntarily vacate the title in exchange for a World Heavyweight Championship match at the 2013 Destination X event, which would now be a special episode of TNA's primary weekly television program Impact Wrestling.[9][10]

Sabin was noncommital as to whether he was going to cash in for the World Heavyweight title shot. On the June 27 edition of Impact Wrestling, Sabin lost the title in a three-way match (also involving Kenny King) to Suicide. Hogan then came out and announced that the real Suicide (T.J. Perkins) had been knocked out backstage and that the Suicide in the ring was an imposter. Hogan then gave Suicide until the end of the night to either unmask or be stripped of the championship. Suicide then unmasked, revealing himself to be Austin Aries. Aries confessed to being the person who jumped T.J. Perkins, explaining as he was the one who came up with the idea of the X Division Champion having the yearly right to exchange the X title for a match for the World title (and the one who traded in and won last year) Aries announced that he would be challenging Bully Ray for the World Championship.

At the June 29 tapings in Las Vegas, Nevada, Hulk Hogan announced a three-way match for the X Division Championship also involving Chris Sabin and T.J. Perkins (now going by Manik), which was won by Sabin (aired July 4). In the portion of the tapings that aired on July 11, Sabin voluntarily vacated the title in exchange for a match to wrestle for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Destination X against champion Bully Ray on July 18.[11]

Results[edit]

Aftermath[edit]

On the July 25 edition of Impact Manik defeated Sonjay Dutt and Greg Marasciulo in the Ultimate X finals to win the new X Division Championship.

Bully Ray and Chris Sabin continued their feud over the TNA World Heavyweight Championship after Destination X. The week after Destination X on the July 25 episode of Impact it was announced that on the Hardcore Justice special Chris Sabin will defend his title against Bully Ray in a Steel Cage match, which was won by Bully Ray.
