But first, let’s hear from Jesse Godderz as he looks to put down Matt Hardy later on tonight.

Dixie Carter talks about how far Matt Hardy came to become the Champion. She respects him for stepping down as World Champion because he didn’t win it the right way. The Series will crown a new and deserving Champion.

Eric Young vs Tigre Uno

World Title Series Match – Quarter Finals

The X-Division Champion enters to take on the World Class Maniac. Young is none too pleased, the two time former Champ grabs the mic.

Listen to me real close, I know you don’t really understand the words that are coming out of my mouth because you’re dumb like they are. I’m going to the next round… I’m gonna make it to the next round by stepping on your back. Now that’s a short step… I’m gonna hurt you. I want you to leave. LEAVE. Leave! That’s it, OUT. This is my ring!

We welcome you back with a leaping stomp across the chest of Uno. Eric wraps the choke, well, low chinlock as Uno stands and battles back but EY throws him down on the back of his head. Arms to the sky and a lateral, two only.

EY has the man on the top and chokes him across the ring rope. Now the middle and Young with the forearm across the neck on the outside apron. Back inside EY is stomping on Tigre again.

Eric Young says he told Uno to leave.

“Leave to fight another day Baby Tiger. Feed your family. But he chose to attack me from behind the foreign scum. When I dropped him on his head, one two three, he may never wrestle again. But this was just a warmup. This was just to break a sweat. I won’t be responsible for what happens for the rest of the tournament. This is a warning. Just, a warning.”

Special Interview with TNA President Dixie Carter

Interview with Dixie Carter talking about the year that was TNA. She talks about the debut of Drew Galloway in January’s UK Tour. Josh asks about EC3 not being there for her after Bound For Glory. Dixie says she believes in Ethan, he has to get over the entitlement and earn everything he gets. She respects Matt Hardy to win in his hometown, holding Holden like Simba- but it wasn’t as clean as he wanted it and she respects him stepping down as Champ. Now the World Title Series will see a proven winner, in Ethan or Hardy.

Josh asks about what she’s seen so far in the World Title Series. Dixie says all anyone had to do was come into the World Title Series including the Knockouts and get a shot at the stage. The Semi Finals and the Finals will be held live Tuesday Night January 5th in Bethlehem PA. As we enter the 15th year, it’s going to be all about the fans. We have a big year to celebrate and we will do it in style.
