It's not going to happen. She says she has something he doesn't and that is the TNA World Champion. Ethan gets on the mic and tells Dixie that she also has a great nephew who "ended the career" of Kurt Angle. Magnus then grabs the mic and he tells everyone that the champion is speaking. The fans boo him. Magnus says it is so good to be back in Manchester. It is good because he knows it will be one full year until he will be back there with lazy slobs. He tells them that people like them make him ashamed that he is British. He says he is not from the north. And he is not a paper champion. Magnus says he is a man who recognizes opportunity. There is no opportunity in Manchester... unless you want to get smacked in the mouth by the World Champion. Magnus turns to Dixie and says she is all about capitalism and about opportunity. She was looking through a magazine and saw Magnus in it. He says she flew across the pond to sign him to a deal. The fans chant, "Boring." Magnus goes on to address the new investor... MVP. Magnus doesn't know who he is or care what jail cell he came from. Here is the order... the World Champion, the President of the company, people nipping at his heals, and then him. Magnus is the only champion and will stay as champion and he did not sell-out. The lights go out and music plays. MVP comes out on the stage with Samoa Joe by his side.

He is going to cash the briefcase in 7 days and the winner will fight Samoa Joe. Dixie Carter gets on the mic and says Gunner has a match tonight against EC3 and the briefcase will be up for grabs. MVP says we have to make it fair here. MVP can play this game. EC3 also has a briefcase for the TNA World Tag Team Championships. He says Gunner probably wants to be tag champion with Storm. So, let's hang the briefcase above the rafters, get some ladders and have a "Winner Take All" match. Dixie agrees.
