Bully RayThe World Heavyweight Championship

Bully Ray defeated Mr. Anderson in a Last Man Standing match. Well, it looks like they will do whatever it takes to confuse the hell out of us. We have seen Anderson fight against his President for quite some time, but it seemed very rushed. Mr. Anderson and Bully Ray put on a great fight, one that did not need to be pretty. At the end of the match, Ray got help from Brooke Tessmacher by giving Anderson a low blow. The members of the Aces and Eights came out and attacked. Anderson kept getting up for the ten count, but Bully Ray crashed Anderson through a table. That spot looked impressive and really took everything out of both men. After the match, Bully Ray would hit a Piledriver on the stage, forcing Anderson to be completely knocked out.

This ending for the match gave Bully Ray all he needed. He got more heat from the crowd, looked extremely aggressive, and gives him a chance to regroup and focus his attention on Styles. As for Mr. Anderson, it looks like he could be on his way out of TNA. Reports are speculating that his contract expired this month. If it does, will he figure out a way to re-sign with TNA? Will he go to WWE? Will WWE want to bring him back for a third time?

Styles vs. Bully Ray will be fun to watch. This is going to benefit both guys in the long run. I really do not think Bully Ray can win, especially with the new contract AJ Styles signed. I am sure he put things in that contract to benefit him on the biggest stage. The company owes it to him.
