411’s IMPACT WRESTLING REPORT 12.06.12 (Episode 439)

Reminder, I do not rate matches that are under three minutes long…

-Opening video package.

-We are LIVE in Orlando!

-Bobby Roode makes his way to the ring, along with Bad Influence (Daniels and Kaz). Kaz says that you may as well call this throw back Thursday, because the best part of the group formerly known as Fortune is standing right here. That was all in the past, and they are focused on the future. And victory. Roode says that everywhere in the world people make promises, but the difference between Roode and everyone else is that what he says becomes reality. And at Final Resolution, he will win the TNA World Title once again. He has invested a lot in the world title, and we all know, it pays to be Roode. Daniels then promises that on Sunday, it will be one last match with himself and AJ, and the winner will be known as the better man. But he has one last thing to say to AJ face to face, and calls out AJ.

And here comes AJ Styles. AJ says he knows what Daniels will say. AJ says Daniels has been jealous of his since day one, because AJ has earned everything he got in TNA. But Daniels has always been jealous and always will be. AJ says Daniels cannot beat AJ on his worst day. Daniels then says that he has been calling AJ a loser for 18 months, and with all of AJ’s losses, he knows it is true. AJ is just a loser. And the worst nightmare will happen, because Daniels proves he is better than AJ. AJ then says that Daniels talks too much and he attacks him. They all beat down AJ, and Storm and Hardy run out to make the save.

-We get highlights from last week’s main event, and the word of Austin Aries, regarding Brooke Hogan.

-Aries is backstage and says this is all about Hogan trying to get revenge on Aries. He admits to pushing Hogan’s buttons, and last week he had a plan until Bully Ray ruined it last week. Aries challenges Bully Ray for the PPV on Sunday. Aries says he will not stop until he gets what he wants.
