Footage is shown from earlier in the week as cameras try tocatch up with AJ Styles. After searching around for several minutes they find him and his motorcycle as he’s in front of some type of a shack (maybe a bar) and he appears to be talking to a member of Aces & Eights (jacket has trademark patches). AJ rushes the camera crew as they all start running but AJ grabs one and tells him to back off and leave him alone.

Update: As a result of this AJ Styles released a tweet on Twitter saying hes going to Chicago since #TNA wont stop stalking him next week on #ImpactLive March 14 2013!

Impact Wrestling continues now as Kenny King, the new X-Division champion issues a challenge to anyone who thinks they can take away his title as no one hasn’t even seen what he’s capable of doing to keep it.

Backstage on Impact Wrestling, Sting is more bloodied than ever as Eric Young passionately tells him that he hasn’t forgotten how Aces & Eights robbed him several months of wrestling. He’s career was almost over and he wants to start extracting revenge. EY is very serious here as he doesn’t even put a joke at the end of what all he’s saying as Sting tells him he’s going with James Storm tonight because EY is a wildcard.

Lei’D Tapa decision time as she faces the judges on Gut Check. JB asked her is she feels she did her best as the crowd boos her big time. Danny Davis offers his thoughts as he hears the crowd but he’s quick to tell them of what he knows about her as he sees a future in her and he votes yes! Bruce Prichard takes a moment to offer thoughts and prayers as William Mooday aka Paul Bearer died Tuesday night. Great moment as the crowd pop. Prichard tells Tapa that for once he agrees as he votes no. Tapa is given the chance to kick out as the speech she gives is very weak as Al Snow now has the opportunity to cast his final vote. Snow votes yes as the contract is hers!
