Here’s Impact in case you missed it:
From The Impact Zone at Universal Studios Orlando in Orlando, Florida:
Hosted by “The Professor” Mike Tenay and Taz.
The new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eric Young vowed that everyone will have fun as he vowed to defend the title. The party was halted by TNA President Dixie Carter, who wanted Eric to cater to her. Eric refused as Dixie decided to give him a makeover, starting with his wife ODB, enraging him. Bully Ray appeared and labeled Eric a role model for every wrestler who was held back by people like Dixie. He also labeled him a champion the fans can like and get behind, and he also told him that he likes and respects him.
