Bobby RoodeTournament Matches Set

In a follow-up to our post earlier, all four of the first round matches have been set to determine a new TNA World Heavyweight Champion. The tournament kicks off next week with Jeff  Hardy vs. Chris Sabin in a Full Metal Mayhem match. In a major Bound for Glory 2012 rematch, "The Cowboy" James Storm will face off against former Beer Money partner Bobby Roode. Kurt Angle will take on Austin Aries, and Main Event Mafia stable-mates collide when Magnus faces Samoa Joe. 

Impact Returns to Orlando

When Impact Wrestling returns home to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL on November 21st, it will be doing so under the Turning Point pay-per-view theme for that set of tapings. If the first two rounds of the tournament take place on next week's Impact taping, it is possible TNA could crown a "new champion" at Turning Point. Keeping in mind, of course, that AJ Styles is still the rightful holder of the title.
