Impact Wrestling returns to pay per view tonight when Total Non-Stop Action presents Turning Point. There is a new TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Hardy makes his PPV return and, well, some other stuff too! Here are my predictions for the show.
For the TNA Knockouts Championship:
(champion) Velvet Sky defends against Gail Kim
I don’t quite understand why Kim was brought into the company as a heel. She was horribly used in WWE and since a good portion of TNA fans are internet readers it would seem obvious to put her in a baby face role since people like her. Hell, she was one of the best Knockouts to ever compete in TNA. I have to think that Kim wins the championship here to give herself and Karen Jarrett ultimate power over the division. I have no idea if Tracie Brooks is actually a wrestler, but if she is, I’m inclined to think that she would be the person to go after Kim.
No Disqualification Match:
Rob Van Dam vs. Christopher Daniels
I don’t see RVD losing here, and I really don’t know the last time he lost a big time match-up. A win here for Daniels would be great, but I am more interested in where RVD can go now that Roode is champion. I honestly don’t know where Daniels can go anymore.
Crimson vs. Matt Morgan
Considering Crimson has yet to lose a match, I don’t see Morgan having a shot in this one. I’m sure it will be competitive but Crimson appears to be rising up the ranks quick.
Mr. Anderson & Abyss vs. Bully Ray & Scott Steiner
Honestly, I didn’t know that Abyss was out of Immortal. Which, is kind of baffling considering he was the guy who was promoting the faction over a year ago. I’ll go with Abyss winning this one for his team by pinning Steiner.
For the TNA World Tag Team Championships:
(champions) Mexican America & Sarita vs. Ink Inc.& Toxxin
This is a feud that I haven’t paid much attention to at all, but for some reason I am thinking that Toxxin will get the pin fall here to give Ink Inc. the straps. I have no idea why I think that, but it seems like something TNA would do.
For the TNA Television Championship”
(champion) Eric Young defends against Robbie E.
I’ll keep this one short and sweet. EY for the win.
For the TNA X-Division Championship:
(champion) Austin Aries defends against Jesse Sorensen and Kid Kash
There seems to be an angle going on between Jesse and Kash with Aries just being thrown into the equation. There is really no need for Aries to lose in the near future, so Aries retain the championship.
Jeff Hardy vs. Jeff Jarrett
It seems pretty obvious to me that Hardy walks out the winner here. I liked the idea behind the angle, but when Jarrett was mentioning all the wrong things Hardy has done to TNA, how can Hardy be portrayed as a face?
For the TNA World Championship:
(champion) Bobby Roode defends against AJ Styles
I haven’t gotten an update on Styles ankle injury, but if it’s still bad I can’t see him winning this one. Roode is a great heel character and deserves to have a good run with the championship. I think these two can have a good match with Roode stealing the win.
That’s it this time around. If you watch the event I hope you enjoy it!
