TNA Final Resolution 2012: Match Card, Live Stream, Potential Spoilers and More

Justin Welton@JustinWeltonAnalyst IIDecember 8, 2012

Four TNA titles will be on the line Sunday night at TNA's Final Resolution, but the overall bag of matches is pretty much as average as it gets.

We should expect quality matches, but the buildups to most of these fights were awful. It's not the quality at the pay-per-view that should have our attention—it's the lead to the pay-per-view that should get our attention.

Nevertheless, the product at the show should be enough for a buy. 


Where: Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla.

When: Sunday, Dec. 9 at 8:00 p.m. ET

Potential Spoilers

Velvet Sky is back and is saying that 2013 will be her year.

Velvet Sky coming back the week of Final Resolution suggests that she may or may not get involved in Mickie James and Tara's match, but it does suggest that she will be in the picture once the pay-per-view concludes.

You won't be seeing James Storm for a while.

Storm has confirmed that he does indeed have a pretty serious rib injury. He said this on Twitter:

Just got home from the doctor and was told I have torn cartilage between my 2 lower ribs. To far away from my heart to kill me.

Undercard Match to Watch

Kenny King vs. Rob Van Dam: TNA X Division Title match

Kenny King is a great talent in the TNA, and his upside is potentially huge but he stands in the way of Rob Van Dam in pretty much a wasteful match.

I don't see King coming out of this match on top, and TNA doesn't either. TNA is fixated with Rob Van Dam and giving him the title in this time of relevancy.


Who knows, but King is clearly more deserving to be in this situation. It would be a nice and pleasant surprise if King ended up winning the belt, but I highly doubt it will happen.

Boy do I miss when the X Division was relevant.


Main Event Prediction

TNA went about preparing for the main event in the wrong way. Instead of promos and an actual build to the storyline of Bobby Roode and Jeff Hardy, we essentially saw nothing overly exciting to get us ready for the main event.

Jeff Hardy doesn't have the best mic skills, which derails any type of momentum heading into any PPV when the company decides to stay away from correctly building the main event.

TNA is banking on the fact that this main event will be a great match regardless of build and  will most likely be right. However, there is more money being brought in when you correctly promote a match, and TNA continues to fail to live up to expectations.

What's new?

I don't see any reason why Hardy loses this match considering that the company wants to extend his title reign.


Final Word: Jeff Hardy retains the title.
