* EGO defeated The Main Event Mafia after the referee was trying to get control of the match, allowing Bobby Roode to secure Sting's bat and hit Magnus from behind on the back. Roode covered Magnus for the win. Also, I had the perfect angle of the bat shot. The bat that was used was made out of rubber. As soon as Roode hit Magnus with it, it bent just like rubber would. Very strange to see.
AJ Styles comes out next and said that he wanted to get something off his chest. He said that he been there since day one and that he is sick of Dixie Carter hiring all of these UFC guys. He said that instead of having guys like Petey Williams, Low Ki and Elix Skipper, she has to pay for those UFC guys. He noted that he is the only one left from the Nashville days. He mentioned Jerry Lynn, Low Ki and a few others from the Nashville days, and said that they deserve better. He said the real truth behind Dixie getting the company was that her daddy bought it for her because she wanted to be in wrestling and had no idea about wrestling.
Dixie Carter comes out and starts crying and saying he was right. It was very tough to hear as she didn't speak loud in the mic. She then started getting louder and louder until she was screaming. She said she is sick and tired of everyone talking about her like she doesn't know what she is doing. She said she is getting tired of AJ running his mouth. She said that if it was not for her, he would still be living in his trailer instead of the house that he lives in now. AJ said that his contract is up in a few weeks and Dixie said that she doesn't care. Dixie start talking about his nickname, the Phenomenal One, and Dixie asks when the last time was that he ever had a great match. Dixie said that she made AJ Styles and his gimmick.
AJ started to say something, but Dixie screams to cut his mic. The mic is cut and Dixie runs over and takes the camera's man headset off and says something. Then the arena goes pitch black like she cut the show (which is where I assume Impact ends next week). AJ then grabbed the mic Dixie had and said something about her husband while it was still pitch black, but it was hard to hear as that mic cut out as well. It was out for a few minutes before they came back on and Dixie was gone while AJ got on the mat and counted 1, 2, 3 and motioned that he will be the new TNA Champion.
The second Xplosion match was The Bro Mans taking on Eric Young and Joesph Park. Joseph Park and Eric Young won with a double splash from the top rope/middle rope in case of Park.
All night JB was saying the loudest fans would get to go backstage, which they did. I notice after they went back, they brought them over to sit by the ramp.
1. Bully Ray
2. Dixie Carter
4. The rest of Aces & Eights
5. The Bro Mans
It was a good show, as this was my first TNA live show. I will say this, the second show was the better of the two and the AJ/Dixie ending was just amazing. It's worth watching for that alone.
