AJ tells him Magnus isn’t the best until he beats the champion. Magnus wants to face AJ and if he doesn’t then he will walk away. Magnus vs. AJ – Winner takes all!

Dixie says she is not going to waste anymore time talking about AJ Styles. She has a contract in her hand for AJ and she wants him to come out and sign it so she can put this nightmare behind him.

It is for the Unified TNA World Championship. She is giving AJ a lot. She is also giving Magnus a lot. She says she is making this a No DQ match.

Before he signs he states that if her boys (ECIII and Spud) come out then there are a lot of people in the back who hate her like he does. Dixie says she gave him everything.
