Now, he cannot challenge for the TNA World Title until BFG in 2013. But that’s the kind of year he had. He was accused of banging Dixie Carter, having a baby with a crack head, but the worst thing was that the people doubted him. People just didn’t believe in him. he was so close to winning the BFG Series, and he thinks he could have won, but it didn’t happen. The year isn’t over yet, and they have the holidays coming up. But h isn’t thankful for anything this year…

This has been the worst year of AJ’s career. Daniels say sit is bad, but the source of Styles’ problems are all his fault. Daniels says that Styles is a broken and flawed little man. So go ahead and cry to the fans, because Daniels has been saying for the last year that Styles is a failure. Styles says that he has beaten Daniels more times than he can remember. Styles wants them to face, one last time, and then, they will know who the better man is. Kaz says that Daniels has nothing to gain from that, because Styles is stale. Kaz then says Styles doesn’t know who he is anymore, while they are riding high, on top of their game, and the real world tag team champions of the world. Daniels then says this may be the perfect time to do the match one last time. And when they do, they will find out who the real failure is. Styles agrees.
