TNA Final Resolution pay-per-view
As 2012 draws to a close, TNA has a lot of momentum. The Aces and Eights angle continues to evolve. Bully Ray is making a push to be TNA’s kayfabe version of Triple H. And the X Division wrestlers still look like the greatest athletes in the world. TNA’s final pay-per-view of the year, Final Resolution, will take place on Sunday, December 9.
Take a closer look at my predictions for TNA Final Resolution 2012.
Mickie James vs. Tara (Knockouts Championship)
With (on average) only one or two Knockouts matches per week on Impact Wrestling, it’s difficult for TNA’s female wrestlers to get air time. Given her recent health scare, Mickie James is now being featured. But Tara will retain her belt at TNA Final Resolution.
Prediction: Tara defeats Mickie James
Kenny King vs. Rob Van Dam (X Division Championship)
Kenny King has been very impressive in limited action in TNA since leaving ROH. But the problem with the current TNA X Division roster is that none of them have the notoriety of Rob Van Dam. I predict that Rob Van Dam will hold the X Division title far beyond Final Resolution.
Prediction: Rob Van Dam defeats Kenny King
Matt Morgan and Joey Ryan vs. Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez (World Tag Team Championship)
The buzz surrounding Chavo Guerrero lasted about as long as The Nasty Boys did in TNA. Matt Morgan and Joey Ryan are gaining momentum every week and that trend will continue at TNA Final Resolution. I predict new tag team champions will be crowned.
Prediction: Matt Morgan and Joey Ryan defeat Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez
Aces and Eights vs. Angle, Joe, Bischoff, and Brisco
My main prediction for this TNA Final Resolution match is that Garrett Bischoff and Wes Brisco will turn heel and join Aces and Eights. This could lead to a DQ loss for Aces and Eights at Final Resolution, but no one will remember that. Could Eric Bischoff be the leader of Aces and Eights?
Prediction: Aces and Eights defeat Angle, Joe, Bischoff, and Brisco
Austin Aries vs. Bully Ray
Austin Aries and Bully Ray are both great workers, so this angle has a lot of potential. I just hope Brooke Hogan doesn’t turn up pregnant a la Claire Lynch. I predict Aries will win this Final Resolution match, as he needs the win to stay in TNA title contention.
Prediction: Austin Aries defeats Bully Ray
Christopher Daniels vs. AJ Styles
Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles have had more “one final matches” than Terry Funk. Clearly, AJ Styles is building towards a major turnaround, but I think he still has farther to fall. I predict Christopher Daniels will defeat AJ Styles at TNA Final Resolution.
Prediction: Christopher Daniels defeats AJ Styles
Bobby Roode vs. Jeff Hardy (World Heavyweight Championship)
The Final Resolution main event will feature the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. With Jeff Hardy’s contract set to expire soon, don’t look for him to drop the belt. TNA wants to stay in Hardy’s good graces, so Bobby Roode will have to wait awhile to regain his belt.
Prediction: Jeff Hardy defeats Bobby Roode
