Tonight TNA closes its calendar year, Pay Per View schedule with its final show of 2012. Tonight is the 9th annual TNA Final Resolution Pay Per View. For the past few weeks, there has been a great deal of build up of dramatic build up for tonight’s card. But similarly of how the pay per views have delivered for the past 6 months, tonight should be no exception.
Match #1.) World Tag Team Title Match
Matt Morgan and Joey Ryan (challengers) vs Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez (champions)
Overview: Since winning the tag titles, Chavo and Hernandez have shown to be a pretty viable force and since formulating thier team back in the summer, they have gelled quite nice. Ryan and Morgan are relatively new together, but both still have a great deal of promise between the two. I see championship gold in the future for both Morgan and Ryan, but not the tags, just yet.
Winner: Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez
Match #2) TNA Knockouts Title Match
Mickey James (Challenger) vs Tara (Champion)
Overview: With a very lite Knockouts division, Tara has been a center focus on the womens side of the roster. Mickey James is just coming back from some time off, due to health reasons, so expect to see just a small bit of ring rust on her. Tara has been interesting with the title around her waist and Jesse (from Big Brother) around her arm and that should not change.
Match #3.) X-Division Championship Match
Kenny King (Challenger) vs Rob Van Dam (Champion)
Overview: This is an internet wrestling fans overall dream match. One of the most versatile and unpredictable wrestlers in high flying history, RVD taking on an Indie favorite who has an unlimited arsenal in his move set, Kenny King. This match should deliver in many aspects and will be a fun one to watch. Kenny will win this championship eventually, but I believe that TNA wants the belt on RVD a little bit longer.
Winner: Rob Van Dam
Match #4.) Aces and Eights vs Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Garrett Bischoff and Wes Briscoe
Overview: First let me preface this with saying Happy Birthday to Kurt Angle. I’m sure that will give him a great deal of momentum going into this match tonight. Angle and Joe teaming up together is a dream combination in itself. However, even though Briscoe and Bischoff have been adequate assets to Angle, I think they will be more of a hindrance in this match. Aces and Eights have too much up their sleeves to just lay down.
Winner: Aces and Eights
Match #5.) Bully Ray vs Austin Aires
Overview: This is definitely a match that is something to look forward too. Both men are defined ring generals and have a solid story behind them. Aires is dynamic when it comes to telling an in ring story and Bully is showing his versatility regarding being able to play both sides of the ring as a viable heel, face and now tweener. Hard to call a winner in this one, but expect some outside distractions coming from Brooke Hogan.
Winner: Austin Aires
Match #6.) “One Final Time”
AJ Styles vs Christopher Daniels
Overview: This match/ this rivalry may go down as one of the greatest rivalries in the history of professional wrestling. We have received classics from these two men. Whether it be a one on one, tag, triple threat or fatal four way, these two consistently deliver. Tonight will be no exception. You have to wonder what will be the benefit if AJ wins the match, since he is not eligible for a World Championship match until Bound For Glory 2013. Something like that has to play a role in the outcome of this match, and I don’t see it going in his favor.And soon a heel turn for him is eminent.
Winner: Christopher Daniels
Match #7.) TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match
Bobby Roode (Challenger) vs Jeff Hardy (Champion)
Overview: Booby Roode earned this championship match when he won his triple threat match at TNA Turning Point last month, and what better way to end the year 2012 than by recapturing the one title that you started the year out with and that’s with the Heavyweight Championship in your hands. Roode is looking to make this happen tonight. However, Jeff Hardy has defied the odds against him, many times and tonight should not be any exception. I don’t see Hardy losing the title for a while, until it is his time to make a giant step to the side.
Winner: Jeffy Hardy
