AJ Styles to Defend World Title Outside of TNA, Dixie Comments on Ethan, Thursday’s Impact

– Dixie Carter tweeted about her “nephew” Ethan Carter III’s Impact Wrestling debut on Thursday:

“Just re-watched @EthanCarterTNA in his #Impact debut. Great job darlin!! So proud of you!!!! XOXO”

– Regarding negative feedback to Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling, it was written by the crew that was writing the Impact shows leading up to Bound For Glory.

– As seen on Thursday’s Impact Wrestling, AJ Styles “walked out” of the company with the TNA World Heavyweight Title. TNA is planning on sending AJ to The Great Muta’s promotion in Japan and AAA in Mexico where he will defend the belt and claim to be the real TNA World Champion. This will lead to a champion vs. champion match somewhere down the line.

    They did indeed, I think it could have been stretched to mania with punk returning after the rumble.

  • Don’t get me wrong, WWE fucks up 95% of their modern storylines, most especially that amazing Punk angle.

    At least there doing it in a way that actually makes it look like styles is legitimately walking away and taking the title. Unfortunately there not wwe and they don’t have the recognition for this kind of angle to make much of, if any impact at all. I wish the wwe had allowed punk to do this for a month or two, it could have really meant something then.

    It was only 8 days. He missed one Raw. It was ridiculous. Sure, TNA is completely ripping off the storyline, but it seems like maybe they have an outside shot of improving on the WWE version.

    WWE should have let Punk go to ROH and a few other Indy events with the WWE title in Summer ’11. Instead they brought him back a couple weeks later and killed the entire storyline.

  • Ah. So they’re doing the whole CM Punk deal, except perhaps stretching it out a bit longer and actually having him defend the belt elsewhere. Gotcha.
