Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Impact Wrestling starts off with a video package. It shows the confrontation between Austin Aries and Hulk Hogan. It shows the deal they made about the X-Division Title. Austin gave up the title in order to face Bobby Roode. Roode doesn’t like it one bit. The video changes to the AJ/Dixie storyline. They couldn’t come clean, but the truth came out anyway. A lady comes out and reveals she is an addict. This all happened last week.
The video ends and AJ and Dixie are backstage. Dixie is glad they can move on. AJ says he is certainly moving on by beating Kazarian and Daniels up. He is going to put the nail in the coffin. It’s going down tonight and he can’t wait. Dixie likes it.
The camera shows the Impact Zone. The crowd is on their feet while fireworks explode above the ring as well as on stage. The camera shows Dixie Carter and the lady from last week walking together. They enter the building. This was certainly filmed earlier today.
The camera goes to the Impact Zone again as we start off with a Bound for Glory Series Match. The lights go out and Mr. Anderson’s music plays. The spotlights are on him as he reaches up for the mic. The music stops. He asks if there are any @ssholes in the building and then goes to introduces himself. Anderson continues to the ring. After he is in the ring, Rob Van Dam’s music hits. He comes out as the whole F’n show! All of the Bound for Glory Series Matches will be 15 minutes long now!

Music plays and it’s Austin Aries. He walks down the ramp with a casual outfit and sunglasses on. He has the X-Division title in his hand. He will speak next!
Austin Aries is in the ring with a mic. He asks who wants some extra dose of greatness. The crowd cheers. He revisits last week’s memory about being in the ring with Hogan. He says that relinquishing the title is not easy to do. He beat starts like Samoa Joe, but he needed to go after bigger. He respects that title. He wants the respect to continue. Hogan chose Option C as anyone who holds the X-Title this time of year when Destination X comes, that person can opt out of the title to go after the World Title. Aries reveals there will be a tournament to determine the new X-Division Champion. Aries went from not having a contract last year to fighting for the World Title. Thanks to him, anyone can do that now. Just then, Bobby Roode’s music plays. He walks down the ramp in a slow pace. He gets in the ring after grabbing a mic. Aries has the X-Title hanging from the second rope of the ring. Roode gets on the mic and says Aries is pathetically confident tonight. He tells Aries to look at him. The World Title is the real title. It’s the real one because Roode made it that way. He made that title the most important title in this company. He is the most dominate champion in Impact Wrestling. Roode says there are 12 men fighting for an opportunity to face Roode. Those 12 men are in the Bound for Glory Series. The only reason why Aries has the main event match is because of Hogan. Roode brings up Option C. Option C is nothing but a failure. Austin is setting himself up for failure and he is setting up the X-Division up for failure. Aries is not even in Roode’s league. He calls Austin a kid and to get the hell out of his ring. Aries chuckles about being called ring. Aries says that this should be his ring. If he wants him out of his own ring, then he has to make him. A mic is hit and falls to the mat. One drops their mic while Aries takes off his shirt and Roode takes off his jacket. They put their hands up for defense. Roode suddenly backs away as he grabs his title from the mat. He leaves the ring. Aries smirks as Roode walks backwards up the ramp.
A video plays showing Ms./Mrs. Claire from last week. She is the addict lady that got help from AJ and Dixie. After the video, Dixie and Clay are backstage. Claire is being interviewed by the camera man. Clay says her mom is great friends with Dixie and her family. Claire talks about being helped by AJ and Dixie. Claire finally says she doesn’t know Daniels or Kazarian at all. Dixie says she may have seen them passing by sometime but that was it.
Kazarian and Daniels are backstage. They are in their locker room as Kaz is fired up. He says he went on to listen to Daniels for 6 months and now look what happens. He doesn’t want to be part of this anymore. Kaz leaves as Daniels tries to talk him down. Daniels and Kaz are teaming up tonight, so they need to get on the right page.

Another Impact Wrestling week during the Summer of 2012 and that means it is live! Impact Wrestling live seems to have these added twists in the show than when it was taped. For instance, the whole Joey Ryan scenario. After thinking about that segment, I have to say that it was probably planned, but it was a quick “What just happened”. I liked it and I can see they are keeping Mason around for this GutCheck storyline. Speaking about GutCheck, I don’t agree on the hiring of Hendrix. She was alright on the mic (I liked how she started it), but her ring work was not to my liking. I hope she will train and improve before they put her back on television. Like I stated last week, I can’t see her facing ODB or Gail Kim. While I did not like her wrestling, I did like this episode’s wrestling. We seen two X-Division matches, which I always enjoy watching. We witnessed two Bound for Glory Series Matches. One of the reasons why I like the Series is the matches it produces. I mean we will see Samoa Joe vs. Kurt Angle at Destination X! That should be amazing. We will see James Storm vs. Jeff Hardy next week. Is that the first time ever? I am thinking Jeff may have fought Storm while the whole Immortal thing was around. Finally, I have to discuss the ending. While I had second thoughts about the ending last week, I liked this week’s ending. Last week seemed like the whole storyline was going to end. I wouldn’t have been great, but now they add that swerve (which is what Impact Wrestling live is all about) and the story is back. I am interested to see what Dixie will say next week. Didn’t I say that I thought this Claire lady would be the daughter of Dixie and AJ? Well here is where the baby comes in! By the way, Sting is getting better (Keeping the storyline intact (Nice).) If you want to hear more from me, follow me on Twitter (Link below in my bio) as I love discussing the shows with others!
