From Huntsville, Alabama
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Impact Wrestling starts off with the camera on Taz and Mike Tenay as they dedicate this Impact Wrestling to Mae Young. Both Taz and Mike give their praises to the late great Mae Young. A screen is then shown showing her date of birth and the date she passed.
A video plays showcasing Magnus winning the TNA World Championship in the Dixieland match. It then shows AJ Styles returning. Both square off in one match to determine the Undisputed TNA World Champion. After Dixie gathered everyone who is on her side, they attacked AJ in the match while AJ only had Sting (as the others were all taken out). At the end of the day, Magnus retains and is the true champion. The new era begins.
The camera shows the arena and the crowd is going crazy. They are on their feet. Rockstar Spud is in the ring and they start to boo as he begins to speak. He can't even speak without being booed. He tries to speak but they won't let him. Spud begins one more time and says tonight is a monumental night in professional wrestling. He is doing a favor as nothing monumental happens in Huntsville. Tonight he introduces the woman who said she would bring back the TNA World Championship... and she did. She is the Queen of TNA Wrestling... Spud's Queen and our Queen... Madam Dixie Carter! Dixie's music plays and she comes out on the stage. She walks down the ramp and gets in the ring. Spud and Dixie kiss on the cheeks and he gives her the mic. She thanks everyone and tells them what happens when they cross the boss. First Jeff Hardy and last week AJ Styles. Who is next? Who will be tonight? If someone wants to play a game, she is willing to do so.
Dixie goes on to talk about AJ and says he knew better than to mess with her. She owns this company. He did not listened and went above the law. She offered him time after time to get in the line like everyone else, but he couldn't do so. The lonely redneck in him ram his head into every situation. Where did that get him? That got him to where he started in his career. That story ends and this is a new chapter in the company. This is about someone who earned this spot. He is a role model. He represents everything Dixie wants to represent his company. He is the Undisputed TNA World Champion Magnus! Magnus' music hits and here comes the champion. Magnus comes out with a suit on and one championship over his shoulder and the other one around his waist. He gets in the ring and Spud and Dixie celebrate. She gives Magnus the mic.
Magnus introduces himself. He states this is a historic night in Huntsville. The crowd starts to chant, "You sold out, You sold out!" Magnus says he didn't sell out and this is the night where it is out with the old and in with the new. He calls it the Reign of Magnus! He states that he has the two championships and it is a little annoying but there is a reason for it. He tells Dixie to come forward. He tells Dixie to look around and this is because of her. There are TNA fans all around the world. Magnus then gives Dixie the championship around his waist to her. He states this championship is for her and what she has done for the company. Dixie states she is almost a lost of words but Magnus is the real champion. She then states that we have to thank other people who helped last week. Music hits and here comes The BroMans (with Zema Ion), Bad Influence, Bobby Roode, Gail Kim and Lei'D Tapa. Dixie says they all went above the call of duty last week. She really points out Bobby Roode and says what he did at the end was pure art. Everyone will benefit greatly and they will see that in their paychecks.
Dixie states this is the Genesis of a new company... of TNA Wrestling. This is the Genesis of Dixie Carter's TNA. For that to happen, everyone has to stand above. Everyone has to stand up. She then brings up Ethan Carter III and says he has to stand up and still keep his undefeated streak and beat Sting tonight. He is EC3! Music hits and here he comes. Ethan runs down the ramp and gets right in the ring. He kisses Dixie and then gets the mic. He clears his throat but the lights go out and music hits! Here comes Sting! Sting is shown in the crowd. He is on top of the steps as the spotlight is on him. He smiles and points his bat toward the ring.
Sting is still in the crowd and has a mic. He asks if this was the future in the ring. He starts to laugh. He says the wait might not be worth it. He talks about people in the back and how she tried to buy them all. He says he feels bad for Dixie and says that she shouldn't mess with wrestlers. What she did to Kurt's family was horrible. She shouldn't even mess with their families. He then turns to the champion and calls him the paper champion. He says they brought him into the Main Event Mafia to help him shine. He turned on them though. He sold out. He says they are not a house united but a house divided. He says it is not going to come crashing down. He says, "We are going to fight tonight." Dixie asks, "Who is we?" She only sees him. Sting says to look around as they are in Huntsville. Just then, stars come out on the stage. Stars from Samoa Joe, Gunner, James Storm, Joseph Park, and ODB. They run down the ramp and get in the ring. They start fighting the Dixieland faction.
