Impact Wrestling Turning Point PPV
Thoughts & Predictions
November 19, 2021
Tonight on pay-per-view is Impact Wrestling’s Turning Point event and it’s a packed show to be sure. Are you ready for some predictions? Let’s do this.
Impact Wrestling Champion Moose vs. Eddie Edwards – Full Metal Mayhem.
Moose is getting plenty of mainstream publicity as of late and made history with his Impact title win becoming one of only six former NFL stars to cross over from football to wrestling to become a World Champion. The man is on a roll and really making a, dare I say it, impact at Impact Wrestling. Eddie Edwards is a top talent as well and a solid challenger but alas, a challenger is all he is and will continue to be.
Winner and STILL Impact Wrestling Champion: Moose
Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Mickie James vs. 2021 Knockouts Knockdown Tournament winner Mercedes Martinez.
Mercedes is a top lady wrestler and as good as it gets, but the champ is Mickie James and I feel in my heart that it should remain that way for many more months to come.
Winner and STILL Knockouts Champion: Mickie James
Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champions The IInspiration vs. Decay.
IInspiration, aks the tag team formerly known as the Iiconics in WWE, are the new champions, are damn good, and as good as Decay is, and they are, the belts are staying right where they are.
Winners and STILL Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champions: IInspiration
Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion Trey Miguel vs. Laredo Kid vs. Steve Maclin.
A belt needs to switch hands and I think this is where it will happen. Trey Miguel is a damn good talent and has done an excellent job thus far representing the X-Division as their champion, but there’s a new kid on the block named Steve Maclin and he’s been on quite the tear as of late and raising the eyebrows of a lot of people in Impact Wrestling. I think it’s time for him to step up a bit to the next level and that means championship gold.
Winner and NEWImpact Wrestling X-Division Champion: Steve Maclin
Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers vs. Bullet Club.
It’s the Good Brothers, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, taking on Impact’s version of the Bullet Club, Hikuleo & Chris Bey. And floating somewhere around the Impact Zone on behalf of The BC is fellow member El Phantasmo, who recently got involved and helped his associates score a bin win over FinJuice. But the Good Brothers are not without friends too so interference on behalf of both teams is possible and likely. I smell title change.
Winners and NEW Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions: The Bullet Club
Rich Swann vs. Brian Myers
On paper, this shouldn’t even be close. Rich Swann has all the advantages and should make easy work of the former Curt Hawkins, but paper only matters when it’s green. I think we’ll see Myers steal a win here and take that trip to the pay window to pick up some green.
Winner: Brian Myers
Digital Medial Champion Jordynne Grace vs. Chelsea Green.
Let’s flip a coin on this one. I think we’re seeing a new champion crowned.
Winner and NEW Digital Medial Champion: Chelsea Green
Violent by Design’s Eric Young & Joe Doering vs. Rhino & Heath.
As much as I love Eric Young, I’ll always pick Heath. After all, he’s got kids.
Winners: Rhino & Heath
FinJuice vs. Decay.
It’s David Finlay & Juice Robinson, aka FinJuice taking on Crazzy Steve & Black Taurus, better known as Decay, in a grudge match from hell. This should be an epic match with lots of brutality and shenanigans. It’s a tough call, but I drank a glass of orange juice this morning. And thusly, I pick FinJuice.
Matt Cardona vs. W. Morrisey.
It’s Matt Cardona taking on the wrestler formerly known as Big Cass in what should be a very good match. Both guys were majorly underrated during their time in WWE and now, they’re finally getting a chance to shine. My personal pick would be to have Cardona win, but it’s too soon in Morrisey’s time with Impact to eat a big loss. For Matt, it’s not a big deal.
Winner: W. Morrisey
Chris Sabin vs. Ace Austin.
And finally, Chris Sabin taking on Ace Austin. Both guys can move and fly around and are top talents for Impact. Sabin is, of course, the veteran while Ace is coming up fast and getting better every match. Another tough call, especially since I don’t know the story behind this match. Let’s just go with the gut.
Winner: Chris Sabin
