**THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS **SPOILERS** FOR NEXT WEEK’S TNA IMPACT! BROADCAST! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!!**
After AJ Styles “walked out” of the company last night, Dixie Carter will announce a tournament to crown a new champion on next week’s episode, which airs on Halloween.
A gauntlet match will headline next Thursday’s show to determine one of the participants, and the actual tournament begins on November 7.
The expected names in the tournament are Kurt Angle, Austin Aries, Chris Sabin, Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode, Magnus and James Storm.
It should also be noted that there was talk of AJ Styles defending the TNA title at numerous indy promotion events. We’ll see if that’s still the plan.
