As seen on Impact, AJ Styles retained the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Bully Ray due to interference from a returning Mr. Anderson, who caused a disqualification. Following the bout, Styles rejected a contract offer from Dixie Carter and “walked out on TNA” with possession of the belt. In this 24/7 video Dixie reacts to AJ’s decision.
“You know, all this time, I thought I needed Bully Ray to take out AJ, and the fact of the matter is, he took out himself,” said Carter. “I didn’t have to pay the $50,000. I didn’t have to pay him that big fat contract I offered. He’s gone and he did it and I’m looking forward to the future.”
