Yup, AJ is basically playing a tweener role who keeps losing and is close to snapping. Not sure if you saw the Before the Bell package(TNA's best video work) for Final Resolution, but he says how this one isn't for the fans or anybody else except himself. Interesting character development for sure.
Ugh I didn't get to see the Before the Bell (and I was planning to before this PPV since I hadn't seen any BtB before). Very upset I missed Douche O'Clock starring AJ Styles.
