Welcome to TNA Impact, our new TNA World Heavyweight Champion makes his way out to the ring. EY says that everything he has done in his life leads him to this moment. He did not just win the belt for himself, but for the people, for his fans. This is for them and there is no more paper champion. He says things will change around TNA and he will make things fun. He says he will defend the title in any match that the fans want. Dixie Carter interrupts; she says this was an emotional week for him. She says that there is only one person responsible for that and it’s because of her. She saw the potential in him, she believed in him. She says that she invented the bearded, long before anyone else did. She deserves to get a check for people ripping her off on the board idea. He says that he thought she went back to Nashville and we don’t need her. She fires back by saying that he represents her. For better or worse, he is her world champion. She says that he looks and smells like a lumberjack. EY says that she is like crap and he is going to flush it. She says that she will take the higher road; he will obey her in anything she says. He says he will not do that and if she is looking for a new paper champion then she needs to look in a different place. She says that he needs to be in high fashion and that starts tonight by making him a makeover. EY starts to threaten her, but is interrupted by Bully Ray. Bully tells Dixie to shut up and he is going to to take out the trash. Ray says that EY is a role model for any wrestler who was held down by a loser boss like Carter. He says that EY has started from the bottom to the top. Ray says he took her money and spent it in a strip club. Last week they were in the ring, a table was in that ring and she knows what happens by looking back at history when a table is in the ring. He says this is EY’s time and starts a goodbye chant with the fans. Dixie leaves the ring. He says that he does not endorses a lot of people in this business, but he will for EY.
