TNA Impact Wrestling Results (12/12) – Spud Looks For AJ, New X Division Champ, Feast Or Fired

Bill Pritchard

Dixie Carter invites Magnus and Jeff Hardy to the ring, and she says they are fighting for a special honor next week to become her new world champion. Hardy says he won the Bound For Glory Series last year, and he won the championship, but this year he will win another tournament and get back the title. Magnus says he's young but he's not stupid, and he knows these are Hardy's fans, so he wants to thank him for paving the way for him. Magnus says next week Hardy is just an obstacle to beat, and he looks at Hardy as the number one guy, but it means he has to beat him, which he fully intends to do. Dixie says they'll talk about how he has to win, and the wheel was destroyed but one match is left, and they will be in a 'Dixieland' match, which is an escape the cage and ladder match combination. She says whichever one of them wins will travel with her and represent her, and it may be hard but her door is always open, so one of them should take her up on it.

After Chris Sabin gushes over himself in front of Velvet Sky, we cut back to Rockstar Spud trying to break into AJ Styles' home with a credit card. He opens the door and finds a deer head, then he trips over a guitar and sits to think about where AJ would keep the championship. Spud kicks up his feet and finds the title on the coffee table, then he gets all excited but AJ walks down the stairs and turns on the lights. He says he was the first person to get called when Spud showed up at the bar, and he is smarter than Dixie and Spud both. AJ says they can call the cops or his friends, then Spud says he wants to leave and runs away as AJ takes the title from him and slams the door.

X Division Championship
Austin Aries vs Chris Sabin (c) (w/ Velvet Sky)

Aries sends Sabin outside and dropkicks him, then he heads up top but Sabin uses Velvet as a shield before running at Aries and sweeping his legs. Sabin hits him and rolls him inside, then Aries chops him and snaps his head on the top rope before heading up top. Sabin sidesteps a missile dropkick and hits a swinging gutbuster for two, then he flirts with Velvet before suplexing Aries onto the ropes and gets a near fall. Aries comes back with some elbows and a discus forearm, then he heads up top and hits a double axe handle smash on the floor. Aries hits a dropkick but Sabin comes back with a boot to the face, then he sets up a tornado DDT but Aries throws him into the turnbuckles and follows with an IED. Aries picks him up but Sabin grabs on to Velvet, then Aries stops and Sabin goes for a rollup, but Aries kicks out and hits a Brainbuster for the win.
