TNA Turning Point 2011: Video previews for Bobby Roode vs AJ Styles, rest of the match card

via <a href=""></a>

TNA Turning Point takes place this Sunday, Nov. 13, 2011, from the Impact Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida, featuring Bobby Roode defending the heavyweight championship against AJ Styles.


Styles has been vigorously rehabbing an ankle sprain he suffered at a house show this past Friday and says he'll be ready to go for the big show. In reality, he should be out for anywhere from two to four weeks, but we are talking about a company that let Kurt Angle work with a bum hamstring that quickly turned into a torn hamstring.

Guess who won't be back for another few months?

The other sad reality is that the show doesn't have a significant draw on it so Roode defending the title is a must and with the injury angle they've got going with Storm, apparently taking a hint and saving him for a big match down the road, they really don't have any other options.

Then again, they waited until the very last second of Impact to announce this match, so the whole thing is a disaster.

What makes this so disheartening is Roode has been doing a phenomenal job as a heel champion. He's suddenly got a million times more charisma than he had a month ago and the story they've crafted with him turning on Storm has been brilliant.

They just rushed it and now they're left with a main event on a pay-per-view no one is going to pay for because of the way it's been (or hasn't been) promoted. It's a shame, really.

Preview videos of the marquee matches are after the jump, including Roode vs. Styles, Jeff Hardy vs. Jeff Jarrett and Velvet Sky vs. Gail Kim are after the jump.
