TNA World Champion Austin Aries is scheduled to defend against Bobby Roode at Sunday’s Hardcore Justice pay-per-view. If TNA’s recent ad for an upcoming live event is any indication, Aries might not be leaving the PPV as champion.
TNA is holding a live event in Bowie, Maryland on September 1st and sent out advertising for the show listing Austin Aries as the “Former TNA Champion.”
It’s unknown whether this was an error of if TNA accidentally leaked plans to take the title of Aries, but when TNA found out about the situation, the advertising was revised and the billing for Austin Aries was changed to “TNA World Heavyweight Champion.”
