Austin Aries comes out to start the show in a suit, not in wrestling gear. Aries says he is not in a good mood, and everybody should know that he takes pride in what he does. Aries says the other thing they should know about him is nobody is better than him. Austin says he deserved to be in the #1 Contenders match with Matt Hardy and Bobby Roode. Bully Ray comes out and down to the ring to say that the only opinion that matters is the fans opinion. Bully says Austin moves his mouth a little to fast, and Aries will get another shot at what he deserves. Bully says he cannot give him a shot because he lost to Kurt Angle. Bully cannot give him a tag team title match because Dirty Heels just lost to The Wolves. Bully Ray says Austin Aries has a shot at the X-Division championship, but Austin says he doesn't need the X-Division championship. Aries say it's for guys like Rockstar Spud who is not at his level, and Rockstar Spud comes down following his comment. Spud says that he is did not come out to get up in Aries' face, and Spud says it hurts to hear Austin say that about him. Spud says Austin is the best TNA World Heavyweight Champion this company has ever had. Aries says he's giving Spud the opportunity to go one on one with him. Spud says he has always shown he can 'hang', and he cannot hand with Austin, he can beat Austin! Aries says if he can't beat Spud, he doesn't belong in this ring. Bully Ray interrupts and says Spud deserves credit. Bully Ray says if Spud eats Austin Aries, he will never wrestle in TNA anymore. Austin says he'll accept if when he beats Spud, he wants to be called Rockstar Austin Aries. Aries says he's nothing but little old Spud then connects a cheap right hand to Spud.
