Bobby Roode versus Austin Aries for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

It may sound cliche but…what a difference a year makes.

At Destination X, Austin Aries was battling in a fatal four way for a spot on the TNA roster. A couple months later, Aries wins the TNA X-Division Championship. While this was going on, Bobby Roode was one half of the greatest tag team in TNA history - Beer Money - and on the rise in the company. Fast forward a year later, and the story surrounding these two men couldn’t be any more different.

Going into Destination X, Aries was the longest reigning X-Division Champion and was forced to forfeit his title in order to get a shot at the villainous Bobby Roode…who was the longest reigning TNA World Heavyweight Champion. They did battle in a match that was candidate for Match of the Year, and it was easy to see why. Relive this masterful TNA World Championship match right here at A Flair for the Gold.
