|TNA Turning Point 2012 PPV Live Coverage|
Who is going to win?
PREDICTIONS: Jeff Hardy retains. Chavo and Hernandez retain. Tara and Jessie Godderz win. DOC beats Joseph Park. Joey Ryan beats RVD. I could see Magnus maybe winning the title due to something shady. Devon should beat Kurt Angle with interference by Aces and Eights. The #1 contender's match is harder to predict but I'll have to say Bobby Roode wins the match by pinning AJ Styles.
Taz is in the ring to start the pay-per-view off. TNA is doing something for Hurricane Sandy with some guy called Bucket Head and Bully Ray. They're going to try to break a Guinness World Record with the most people tweeting. This guy has more charisma than 95% of the roster.
Who is this other guy on commentary? Todd who? His voice is annoying. Maybe they needed to get him to translate what Taz says.
TV Championship: Samoa Joe (c) vs. Magnus
Fair warning, everyone, I haven't slept in a day and I'm very tired. This is going to make it harder for me to get really into this pay-per-view, particularly if it's a match like this where I couldn't care less. Why are there rope breaks for submissions in this match if it's no-DQ? Magnus kicks out of the Muscle Buster. Joe puts him in the rear naked choke hold and wins.
WINNER: Samoa Joe via submission.
Tara and Jesse vs. ODB and Eric Young
Jesse's doing a pretty good job selling here. I underestimated his abilities, it seems. Can't dislike Taryn Terrell as referee too much. It's a shame the Knockouts title isn't on the line and the Knockouts tag title even exists in the first place. ODB spits the liquor in Jesse's eyes and low-blows him. Eric Young hits an elbow drop on Jesse and gets the victory.
WINNERS: ODB and Eric Young via pinfall.
Jesse deserves more credit than I was originally expecting to give him. Shame they didn't win the match.
X Division Championship: Rob Van Dam (c) vs. Joey Ryan
Ugh, here we go. RVD schooling Ryan for the most part. Ryan hits the Mustache Ride but only gets a two-count. RVD hits the frog splash for the win.
WINNER: Rob Van Dam via pinfall.
RVD match. You know what I think of those for the most part.
After the match, Matt Morgan hits RVD with the Carbon Footprint.
DOC vs. Joseph Park
So Joseph Park acts like a wimp and dodges punches. Can I skip the next 5 minutes? Joseph Park picks up the hammer that DOC tries to bring into the match, but stalls like an idiot until DOC can stop him. Joseph Park is bleeding which makes him snap. DOC hits a chokeslam and wins.
WINNER: DOC via pinfall.
Gallows deserves better than this.
Tag Team Championship: Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez (c) vs. Kazarian & Christopher Daniels
I'm expecting this to be pretty standard and nothing special, but I hope I'm wrong. Kazarian and Daniels just did the Gangnam Style dance. Instantly the best part of this match and pay-per-view so far. Three Amigos time gets interrupted at first but Chavo follows through. Chavo gets the win with a crossbody from the top rope.
WINNERS: Chavo and Hernandez via pinfall.
Seriously not helping with me being tired.
#1 Contender's Match: Bobby Roode vs. James Storm vs. AJ Styles
My guess is Roode pinning Styles here. Seems like the biggest spot so far is when Roode and Storm start working together. James Storm hits the Last Call on AJ Styles for the win.
WINNER: James Storm via pinfall. AJ Styles has no title shot for a year.
Surprised that Storm won this instead of Roode. Not a bad match.
Devon vs. Kurt Angle
Devon needs to win this. The problem though, at least in my mind, is that Devon's not someone that's worth a main event spot or upper midcard even, so I think in the grand scheme of things this is going to be pointless. The other members of Aces and Eights surround the ring and allow Devon to spear Angle, but he only gets a two-count. Angle is able to quickly get on the Ankle Lock and wins.
WINNER: Kurt Angle via submission.
Really just not liking this pay-per-view at all. It feels like it's such filler.
TNA Championship: Jeff Hardy (c) vs. Austin Aries
So far, nothing has happened that hasn't been done in ladder matches. There's been some mistakes, some generic use of the ladder, etc. Aries traps Hardy in a ladder and the steps but instead of climbing, decides to double check it for some reason. Hardy comes back in to climb and takes a bit of a spill. Aries climbs. Hardy climbs. Aries knocks Hardy down. The ladder wobbles and Aries jumps down to put the ladder on the turnbuckle instead. Hardy splashes from the ladder onto Aries. Hardy climbs and Aries dropkicks the ladder...and Hardy propels himself off of it in the process, which makes it look kind of ridiculous but I certainly wouldn't be caught dead doing that, haha. Aries hits the Brainbuster and rolls Hardy out of the ring. Hardy hits a Twist of Fate off the ladder. He follows it up with a Swanton Bomb. Hardy starts climbing and right before he reaches the belts, they go up. Austin Aries got access to the cable controls and moved them up. Hardy gets a bigger ladder from under the ring. After another Twist of Fate, Hardy's able to use the big ladder to retrieve the belts and retain the title.
WINNER: Jeff Hardy via retrieving the belts. You know the rules.
Helped them that it was a ladder match, that's for sure.

2. #1 Contenders Match
3. Jessie Godderz surprised me
1. Overall match quality
