Winner and STILL TNA Knockouts Champion: Tara
JB is backstage, getting his Twitter fix on before doing anything else, naturally. Bobby Roode comes in to join JB, shrugging off JB’s question about his relationship with Aces and 8′s. For most of 2012, Roode was the most dominant champion in TNA history. When Austin Aries defeated him, he promised himself he’d do everything to get his World Title back. And tonight he’s prove that what he says is a fact, and it pays to be rude. He’s a businessman, and his business is the World Championship. Roode tells Hardy to remember that money talks, and bull**** walks.
- We get a video package showing some of the destruction of Aces and 8′s over the past couple of weeks.
