Unfortunately, I think Hardy will win. Aries has really stepped it up a notch since losing the belt and seems to be better in the "chasing the belt" role than as champ. Also, given TNA's recent love of long-term booking, I suspect they'll want to drag this out into a big feud. Hopefully AA will get the belt at some point, though.
They can't really drag it out into a big feud, because either Storm, Roode, or AJ will get the next title shot.
I would MUCH rather have Aries as champion, but from a booking perspective, Hardy needs to win.
