TNA Impact Wrestling June 21 2012
Before TNA Impact Wrestling opens up normally, we get a recap of Hulk Hogan making Austin Aries decide between the X-Division title and a title shot for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. We kick things off with Hogan in the ring, saying that what happened to Sting last week wasn’t right and he’s not going to give than any more air time. He says the thugs will be exposed and put to justice.

He then hypes Open Fight Night and the Bound for Glory Series before switching his attention to Austin Aries, who makes his way to the ring. Aries says that everyone wants to be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, but he doesn’t want to just give away the X-Division title either because it’s the championship that TNA was built on. Hogan says he can’t have one guy be champ of both divisions, but that’s not what Aries wants. If he’s to part with his title, he wants every X-Division champion to get this kind of opportunity around Destination X every year. Hogan loves the idea.
Out comes Bobby Roode and throws a tantrum. He says Aries just made the biggest mistake of his life because he’s going to humiliate him at Destination X. Aries says it’s Open Fight Night and tells Roode to get in the ring and humiliate him right now. They brawl around ringside and get broken up by TNA officials as Mr Anderson gets on the ramp. He says enjoys watching them beating the crap out of each other, but it doesn’t matter who wins at Destination X because he’s coming after the winner.
We are told that Anderson will be the first to make a challenge at Open Fight Night. After the commercial break, he is in the ring and calls out a man who intentionally tried to destroy a guy’s family – Christopher Daniels, who comes out looking shocked and still sipping his Martini.
