Tonight from the Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida, Total Nonstop Action (TNA) presents its annual Turning Point pay-per-view. The pay-per-view's biggest headline story is the TNA World Heavyweight title rematch between challenger Austin Aries and defending champion Jeff Hardy. Turning Point may also lead to some more Aces and Eights surprises.
After this week's edition of Impact! Wrestling, the Turning Point pay-per-view lineup card was officially complete.
Below are my predictions on what the match outcome will be on Turning Point.
DOC (Aces and Eights) vs. Joseph Park
Your winner: Joseph Park.
Remember Abyss? This could be the moment when Abyss will make another surprise comeback and help Park capture the victory. It would be a shocking moment because of just simply how long Abyss' character has been off television. Doc should remain dominant for most of this match until some sort of an interference pops up.
Tara and Jesse vs. ODB and Eric Young
Your winners: Tara and Jesse.
The match itself should be a comedy act. TNA is in need to really rebuild its Knockouts Tag Team division, which has seen better days. Hopefully, in the aftermath of this match, TNA will do the right thing and boost this division instead of featuring events like this one.
Joey Ryan vs. Rob Van Dam for the X-Division Championship
Your winner to retain the X-Division title: Rob Van Dam.
Matt Morgan will have quite a bit to do with nearly helping Ryan score the victory. This match should be an enjoyable one to watch with some solid action both inside and outside the ring.
Kurt Angle vs. Devon
Your winner: Devon.
This is the perfect match to reveal another member of Aces and Eights. Perhaps Angle's on-screen friend Wes Briscoe would be a good selection for that.
Magnus vs. Samoa Joe for the Television Championship
Your winner and new Television champion: Magnus.
After weeks of unsuccessfully defeating Joe, Magnus will finally get his break with a cheap pin fall victory.
Christopher Daniels and Kazarian vs. Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez for the Tag Team titles
Your winners to retain the titles: Guerrero and Hernandez.
I do not see TNA giving up on Guerrero and Hernandez so quickly. As much as the titles would look good on Daniels and Kazarian, TNA should stick with Guerrero and Hernandez right now until the fire burns out.
James Storm vs. AJ Styles vs. Bobby Roode in a No. 1 contenders match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Your winner: Bobby Roode.
Roode is someone TNA just simply cannot ignore. Keeping him in the picture to challenge for the World Heavyweight title could bring plenty of promise in developing a storyline. Although Storm would be the next pick on the list to win this match, TNA should consider building a feud between Roode and Jeff Hardy.
Austin Aries vs. Jeff Hardy for the World Heavyweight Championship
Your winner to retain the title: Jeff Hardy.
The main event of Turning Point should be exciting. If Aries loses to Hardy, I expect him to be out of the title picture for the time being. Hardy is just one month into this title run, and TNA should not disrupt that by any means.
