IN RING SEGMENT
Austin Aries + Bobby Roode: Aries said his decision to relinquish the X Division Title in exchange for a TNA World Title shot was due to needing some new competition. He recapped taking Option C that the X Division champ will always get the same opportunity he received at Destination X each year.

Aries announced there will be a tournament at Destination X to determine the new X Division champion. He said he was backstage today and saw some old and new X Division faces. It reminded him of when he was without a contract one year ago and is now challenging for the TNA World Title one year later. Bobby Roode’s music interrupted to bring out the World champ. Roode told Aries to take a good look at the TNA World Title belt, because it’s the real title. Roode said he single-handedly make this World Title the most important thing in this industry..Roode then accused Aries of only getting a title shot against him because of Hulk Hogan. He said Option C is nothing but a failure. He will make sure Aries fails at Destination X. He looked down at him and said Aries isn’t even in his league before telling the “kid” to get out of his ring. Aries asked Roode what if he thinks this is his ring. Aries told Roode to make him leave the ring. Roode bailed quickly.
