Out comes TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Ethan Carter III his bodyguard Tyrus (who has some hysterical tights that say, “Glorious Unicorn is SWOLL”). EC3 explains that his title represents his life’s work but more importantly he taunts the fans by saying it makes him better than, “YOU…AND YOU….AND YOU”. EC3 then makes fun of Matt Hardy for losing all that he has recently worked for and goes on to say that he will be champion forever.
Matt Hardy interrupts EC3, limping his way down the rampway and into the ring, much to the chagrin of Ethan Carter III. Matt Hardy says that EC3 will remain in his sights as long as he is champion of TNA and that one day his dream of being TNA World Heavyweight Champion will become a reality. He says that he will not stop, he will not quit and that is because Matt Hardy Will..Not..Die! Ethan then blows the crowd away with his gratefulness by saying he has never been hit harder than by Matt Hardy with that spectacular Leg Drop through a table on the outside. He then ultimately denies Matt another shot at the title, then Tyrus catches him across the jaw with a rough cheap shot. EC3 the cracks the TNA Title over Matt’s head as Tyrus holds Hardy’s arms back. The champ then raises his title above his head and exits the ring to a chorus of boos.
