Preliminary pay-per-view buyrate estimates are in for the TNA Turning Point event this past Nov. 11, 2012, in Orlando, and they once again show that Jeff Hardy can move the needle when he's headlining as champion.
The TNA Turning Point 2012 pay-per-view (PPV) event, held on the 11th day of the 11th month in front of 1,100 people at the Impact Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida, reportedly drew 11,000 buys.
That's according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required but recommended):
Estimates have TNA Turning Point doing 11,000 buys, which is slightly up from the usual regular monthly shows. There is usually a few thousand above normal rise when Jeff Hardy is in the title match and that continued.
Normally, smaller shows do around 7-8,000 buys but Hardy has proven once again that he moves the needle in a way no one else on the roster has been able to do, save for James Storm and Bobby Roode drawing a solid number at Lockdown in the midst of their hot feud.
That heat has since died down.
This is perfect timing for Hardy too, considering his contract is coming up soon and he's looking to get the best new deal for himself possible. It always helps to have concrete proof that you can make money for the company, even if it's not hand over fist.
Hardy headlined Turning Point in a ladder match against Austin Aries, a rematch from their Bound for Glory bout for the TNA heavyweight championship. Hardy won both times.
