He invested money and made money. He invested more and made more. He says it is time to respect talent and apply change. TNA Wrestling has the talent and a great international crowd. However, bad management makes the company weak. Management makes this fish stink. MVP gives us his word that this won’t happen again. He says his agenda in TNA is a simple one.

Aries says he held every major title in TNA and also the guy who invested Option C. What Option C made him do was cash the X-Division Title in to win the TNA World Championship. He says he has every intention of doing that again. Just then, BOOM! The Bro Mans come out on the stage and they do their knuckle punching and chest bumping. Just then, Zema Ion comes from behind and hits Aries with the briefcase from behind. He says he has the briefcase and is cashing it in right now.
