Happy New Year with Eddie Edwards
Edwards does the cheap pop and works up the crowd! He declares he’s here to bring a surprise and
“Domination” kicks up over the PA as LASHLEY arrives. He says the only surprise is the fact that Eddie is still Champion. He says he will hand out beatings 365 days this year. He demands a rematch for the title belt!
“Trouble” booms over the PA System as EC3 makes his way out next, mugging for the Anthem logo. Carter works the crowd and begins antagonizing Lashley. He calls Eddie whitebread and says one year ago today he won the title. The fans chant “TNA” and Ethan makes them chant “EC3” which becomes an “Eddie” chant. Carter says he wants his rematch tonight.
Lashley gets in his face and Eddie says they both forget he’s the Champion. Eddie says let’s kick off the New Year with a Triple Threat Match tonight! He still has a surprise tonight. Will we have a main event triple threat for the title?
