Dixie Carter’s daddy bought her a rasslin’ company.” He says she has no experience and broke up the chemistry of TNA. “What happened to Jerry Lynn, Low-Ki.” He says Dixie replaced them with “MMA stars and guys who needed a 2 year paid vacation… to do absolutely nothing and go back where they belong.” AJ says despite what the internet says, he doesn’t have a contract with TNA and nobody in the back respects Dixie anyway. He says her biggest mistake was leaving one of the “Band of Brothers” standing. He says he will make Dixie get on her knees and beg and then make her pay.

She goes to leave and AJ starts to speak again and tells her to put the mic where it belongs. She grabs headsets off the camera guy and demands AJ’s mic be cut off. The lights go out to a sea of boos as we go off the air.
