A.J. Styles came out in street clothes for this big talk. Taz and Tenay weren’t sure what was on Styles’ mind. The crowd cheered wildly for Styles. He talked about being in TNA since day one to give the fans an alternative to watch. Styles complained that Dixie Carter’s daddy bought her a wrestling company. He said that she broke up TNA’s chemistry because she knew nothing about wrestling. Styles brought up Jerry Lynn, Low Ki and others that were thrown under the bus for MMA stars and others that just wanted a 2-year vacation. Styles ran down several other names of great stars that were unused for these fly-by-night guys. Styles was seriously p*ssed off. He said Styles was her biggest mistake. Styles explained he didn’t have a contract with TNA and none of the contracted guys have any respect for her. Styles promised to win the World Title for himself, the “Band of Brothers” and the fans. Styles said he was going to make Dixie beg and then pay for him.
Out strolled Dixie Carter. She got booed, big time. “Dixie Sucks!” rang out. Styles told her to say something. Dixie said she knew him for a long time and she knew Styles meant what he was saying. She apologized to him. Dixie said she was ready to be accountable to the fans and the investors and to Styles. She apologized…for letting Styles think he was better than he was. She said she created the illusion of Styles’s phenomenalism. She accused him of being sub-par, as of late. Dixie said she was glad to be able to answer to all the crap that she has heard. Dixie said without her daddy’s money there would not be a TNA. Dixie made it clear that this was Dixie’s House…not A.J.’s. Styles told Dixie to put the microphone where it belonged. Dixie ordered the lights to go out and the microphones to be cut. She forced the show off the air.
