TNA Turning Point 2012 Reaction

TNA Turning Point 2012

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

So at the end of it all, Turning Point had no Title changes, but the Main Event picture for the next month became well-defined.

A.J. Styles took the ultimate fall and won’t get a chance to compete for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship until Bound For Glory 2013, while James Storm took the #1 Contender spot.

That said, an above-average card delivered an above-average show. Simple as that.

TNA Bound For Glory 2012 Reaction

TNA Bound For Glory Logo

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

Bound For Glory was quite the newsworthy show.

Rob Van Dam, Tara, Chavo Guerrero Jr./Hernandez and Jeff Hardy all became Champions.

Bully Ray didn’t turn on Sting. Devon turned out to be a part of Aces and Eights.

James Storm and Bobby Roode took part in an absolute all-out brawl that arguably stole the show.

There’s plenty of ways TNA can go after this show and with four Championships changing hands, a new direction seems definite.

There’s A Rumble Brewing 

– One week removed from Roman Reigns’ loss of the WWE United States Championship to Chris Jericho, we figured the opening video would highlight all of that. Not on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, no no. Instead, we got the traditional classy soundbite of King’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech with some spiffy production as always. Dear lord WWE, don’t transition that into a Reigns promo. Just don’t.

An Olympic Farewell 

– Even after his most accomplished WWE years, Kurt Angle went on to garner success in TNA, easily becoming the company’s top acquisition to this day, one of the few times they truly shocked the wrestling world. Whether you want to admit it or not, you paid attention to the Angle-Samoa Joe feud and other classic moments. Angle personified everything good with TNA during his 10-year stint there and like all great things, it had to conclude. The stage was set and the final match was booked, it was only a matter of seeing it play out. The opening video did a respectable job of chronicling Angle’s key TNA moments – head-butting Joe, beating Lashley for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, his moonsault off the top of the cage, etc.

The Penultimate

– TNA has put out compelling television lately, with a wide array of storylines, whether it’s the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Matt Hardy-Ethan Carter III feud rechristened with new personas, Kurt Angle’s Farewell Tour, Decay’s rise or Beer Money against the TNA World Tag Team Champions, The Wolves. You name it, there’s something for everyone and that creates a well-rounded show. The opening video highlighted Rockstar Spud’s sudden heel turn on EC3 ending last week’s show, going back to the moment when EC3 left him bloodied, humiliated and bald last year as his reasoning. It’s a perfect time to turn Spud heel, as it allows his feud with EC3 to keep going and also gives the Matt Hardy Brand (or The Family, it’d be nice if his stable actually had a name) another new member. We also saw Spud get approval from Hardy, Reby and Tyrus backstage, Hardy calling Spud his “number one guy.”

Lockdown 2016

– Greetings, readers… if you’ve stumbled upon this charming piece of literature, then allow us to tell you all about TNA’s annual “every match in a steel cage” event called Lockdown, a former Pay-Per-View now forever destined for straight-to-TV goodness. Normally, TNA’s the butt of wrestling jokes (at times still is) but ever since the TNA World Title Series transitioned into the show’s move to Pop TV, the show has picked up in quality, led by TNA World Heavyweight Champion “Big Money” Matt Hardy and his “brand” of his wife Reby, his baby son Maxel and Tyrus. This year’s show heavily focused on the main event for the World Title that’d pit Hardy against Ethan Carter III, as we saw dominate the opening video.

Back In The UK 

– TNA always seems to bring their A-game when traveling 4000 miles overseas to the United Kingdom. Anybody who remembers the classic Ethan Carter III-Rockstar Spud “Hair Vs. Hair” match can attest that this crowd brings something US crowds lack. The opening video did a good job of wrapping up several ongoing storylines in 90 seconds – Beer Money’s reunion tour, the new X-Division Champion Trevor Lee/Gregory Shane Helms alliance, the formation of the American Horror Story-esque tag team Decay (Abyss/Crazzy Steve/Rosemary) and more.

Farewell Detour

– The time was now for Ethan Carter III’s response after two weeks when the well-received “double turn” took place that gave TNA World Heavyweight Champion Matt Hardy the Title, EC3’s bodyguard Tyrus, EC3’s pride and life and anything else a man could steal from another. While this was a selling point in the show from last week, it was smart to hold off on it for now, building it for a later segment in the show. EC3 still looked himself, clad in a suit and shades, but this was him getting ready to spill his guts.
