Jeremy Borash is backstage with Magnus. Magnus states, “Ladies and gentleman, this is your next champion speaking.” He tells everyone to look around him and see who he is associated with him. No one. It was Dixie, Ethan, Spud, and Abyss, but now he is all alone and he will do it himself. Magnus talks about Eric Young being one of the fans and winning it for them, but it is a joke. He wasn’t laughing though as he beat Eric Young to a pulp on Thursday. He will take his championship as it is his. You can call Magnus whatever you want, but he is not a paper champion and won’t be a joke champion… he will be the World Champion.
A video package plays showcasing Eric Young’s rise to the top of TNA Wrestling. We seen his character of being a joke and a comedy act in Team Canada and the “Don’t Fire Eric.” We seen him in a robe, turkey suit, a speedo, and afraid of fireworks. We seen him as X Division Champion, Global Champion, Knockouts Tag Team Champion, but he has developed the entire time to become the superstar he is today. He gave 11 years to TNA Wrestling and it has finally paid off as he beat Magnus for the TNA World Champion. He doesn’t look like a champion but he has a heart like a champion and he is a fighting champion. In comes Magnus who looks like a champion and who can be the guy of the company. We will see two wrestlers battle tonight and one will be TNA World Champion at the end.
The bell rings three times. Music plays and here comes Magnus, the challenger. He walks to the ring as some cheer and some boo. Eric Young’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring as the crowd cheers. Jeremy Borash is in the middle of the ring as he introduces each participant. The crowd chants, “EY, EY, EY” and then “Yes, Yes, Yes” as Eric Young is introduced.
