Winners by pin: Joseph Park, Eric Young & ODB
- Austin Aries is on his way out.
- Hulk Hogan is stopped from Earlier in the Day, in the back. He says he read the transcripts from last week. Regarding AJ and Dixie he says "this is out of control" and he is "here to fix all this crap."
- Aries comes to the ring. He starts to talk about not winning the BFG Series but still being the greatest. He is interrupted by Kenny King on the stage. King thinks he made all the headlines in the last year. King gets in the ring and says his belt was stolen by someone in a Manik costume. He says he owes Aries one. He says he is the next generation of pro-wrestling. Aries says King is not the Pretty Boy Pit Bull, but a "boy who is pretty much the pits and full of bull." Aries wants a fight and takes his shirt off. King tells him not tonight but hits Aries with a sucker punch. Aries answers him back and demands a referee to come out and make it official.
Austin Aries vs. Kenny King
Aries manhandles King on the floor as we return from a break and the bell rings. Aries tosses King in the ring and lands mounted strikes up top. King shifts momentum and Aries falls to the floor. King is juicing from his face big-time. King's face is covered in crimson as he takes it to Aries. Aries mounts a comeback and drops King on the canvas. Aries with a pendulum elbow. They trade shots; King hits an awesome spinning kick to the face. Aries snaps King's neck across the top rope and goes up top. King makes him lose his balance and hits a suplex off the 2nd buckle for 2. King misses with a running front dropkick in the corner. Aries with a dropkick in the corner and a brainbuster for the win.
Winner by pin: Austin Aries
- A vignette runs for Lei'D Tapa.
- Chris Sabin, with Velvet Sky, stops Aries in the back and congratulates him on his win. He says his win for the World Title was better. He says he is greater than the Greatest Man that Ever Lived. He takes a confused Velvet by the hand and leaves. Aries says he wants to test that theory out.
- Magnus is ticked off in the back and Samoa Joe asks what his problem is. Magnus is fed up with Aces & 8s and EGO. Joe tells him it is all mind games and they need to focus for tonight. Sting plays the voice of reason and slaps Magnus on the chest and tells him they are "this close" to pushing Aces & 8s over the edge. He tells Magnus not to let them get in his head. (And the Magnus heel-turn tease continues).
- Hulk Hogan is on his way out.
- A replay of the Dixie/AJ promo is shown.
- Hulk Hogan makes his entrance. (Say what you will about the man but with the looks on people's faces, Hulk is still a big draw for TNA as far as live attendance goes.) He pauses in the ring for the chants. Hogan says he has been in TNA for 4 years and he has always had his opinion on Dixie. He says Dixie made him the GM 2 years ago to make sure things on the show run smoothly. He says you should never air your laundry on TV. He polls the crowd on if they want to see AJ stay with the company. They cheer but he asks it again to even louder cheers. He says that is what he thought. He wants AJ to listen in the back at the love these people have for him. Hogan says he is going fix this thing later tonight, for himself, TNA, and the fans.
- We go to a promo for Kurt Angle returning at Bound for Glory.
