Days of our Semi Finalists’ Lives w Dixie Carter

Dixie says words with the title Yay Dixie and ETHAN CARTER III!!!

“Trouble X 3”

Ethan says he wasn’t invited by Dixie but he figures he wants to have an “Airing of Grievances.” The fans chant for him and Ethan sees Dixie was upset that he defeated Angle by himself. Number two, Dixie is mad that he defended the title. NUMBER THREE is Dixie stacked the deck against him by adding Hardy into the main event of Bound for Glory. Tonight it is over because he wins and he will become… well the winner, you know what he said.

Dixie says look in the mirror. All of it is because of what he is and he did. Matt beat Carter at BFG and Ethan used lawyers to get his way. Carter mocks her and all of a sudden MATT HARDY makes his way out with microphone to say none of that shit matters from Carter. The only people that got robbed were the fans when his legal nonsense took away the title. Fortunately the brilliant Series served that and tonight we get a new Champion.
