>> ON NOVEMBER 11TH THESE TWO
MEN WILL COME FACE TO FACE YET
AGAIN IN ONE OF THE MOST
ANTICIPATED REMATCHES OF 2012.
>> ANYTIME YOU PUT AUSTIN ARIES
AND JEFF HARDY IN A RING, IT'S
GOING TO BE GREAT.
>> WHO WILL WALK AWAY WITH THE
TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPIONSHIP?
>> I'M AM THE GREATER
COMPETITOR, I'M THE GREATER
PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER.
I'M THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER
LIVED.
>> TNA WRESTLING AND DIRECT AUTO
INSURANCE PRESENT TURNING POINT
LIVE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH ONLY
ON PAY PER VIEW.
THESE TWO MEN ARE AT TURNING
POINTS IN THEIR CAREERS.
AUSTIN ARIES WAS READY TO WALK
AWAY FROM THE BUSINESS UNTIL A
LAST MINUTE PHONE CALL BROUGHT
HIM BACK TO THE RING.
JEFF HARDY NEARED THE END FOR A
VERY DIFFERENT REASON.
FOR A MAN THAT IS KNOWN FOR HIS
GRACE IN THE RING, HIS FALL WAS
ANYTHING BUT.
>> YOU KNOW, I GET NERVOUS
SOMETIMES WHEN I HAVE TO GO OUT
TO THAT RING, BUT THAT NIGHT
TOPPED IT ALL.
>> BOTH MEN HAVE CONQUERED
ADVERSITY IN THEIR OWN WAY.
>> YES, THEY PLAY FAVORITES.
DO I THINK THAT'S SOME BIG
REVELATION?
DO I THINK I'M TELLING ANYBODY
SOMETHING THEY DON'T ALREADY
KNOW?
>> AND ON NOVEMBER 11TH THEIR
ROADS ARE ABOUT TO CROSS YET
AGAIN IN ONE OF THE MOST HEATED
RIVALRIES IN PROFESSIONAL
WRESTLING TODAY.
THIS MONTH ON BEFORE THE BELL,
TURNING POINT.
>> NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO,
THERE'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE
FAVORITES.
IT'S THE OLD ADAGE, LIFE ISN'T
FAIR.
>> WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE REMATCH
BETWEEN AUSTIN ARIES AND THE
CURRENT TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPION JEFF HARDY.
>> I'VE BEEN BUSTING MY ASS JUST
AS LONG AS JEFF HARDY.
I'VE BEEN SACRIFICING JUST AS
MUCH AS JEFF HARDY.
>> ON NOVEMBER 11TH THESE TWO
MEN WILL COME FACE TO FACE YET
AGAIN IN ONE OF THE MOST
ANTICIPATED REMATCHES OF 2012.
>> AT TURNING POINT ARIES-HARDY
TWO IS JUST GOING TO, I DON'T
KNOW IF IT'S GOING TO BE BETTER
THAN BOUND FOR GLORY, I DON'T
KNOW IF IT'S POSSIBLE TO BE
BETTER, BUT IT'LL DAMN SURE BE
RIGHT UP THERE.
>> JEFF HARDY, YOU RAISED YOUR
LEVEL AT BOUND FOR GLORY TO A
PLACE YOU'VE NEVER RAISED IT
BEFORE.
I BROUGHT THAT ON YOU.
>> TNA WRESTLING PRESENTS BEFORE
THE BELL TURNING POINT.
♪♪
>> BEFORE I CAME TO TNA, YOU
KNOW, SOMETHING WENT DOWN IN MY
LIFE WHICH HAS CARRIED ON FOR A
LONG TIME.
AND LIKE, I DON'T THINK PEOPLE
REALIZE THE STRESS THAT COMES
WITH A LEGAL SITUATION.
WHEN RUBY WAS BORN, JUST SITTING
THERE, WE WERE IN THE HOSPITAL
FOR A WEEK.
AND JUST GOING OH MY GOSH, I HAD
TO GO ON THE ROAD THAT SATURDAY.
AS SOON AS I LEFT THE HOSPITAL I
WENT STRAIGHT ON THE ROAD.
IT WAS CRAZY.
AND SITTING IN THE COURT ROOM
GOING, "OH MY GOD, WHAT'S GOING
TO HAPPEN IN COURT?"
IT'LL DRIVE YOU MAD.
YOU KNOW, YOU WALK INTO WORK AND
YOU WANT TO FEEL GOOD, YOU WANT
TO FEEL HAPPY ABOUT WHERE YOU
ARE, BUT IT'S JUST NOT THE SAME
WHEN YOU GOT THAT BURDEN ON YOU,
MAN.
IT'S TREMENDOUS, IT'LL ALMOST
DRIVE YOU INSANE.
THERE'S BEEN SO MANY NIGHTS
THROUGHOUT MY COMPLETED FIRST
YEAR WITH IMPACT WRESTLING.
SO MANY NIGHTS ON THE ROAD I'M
JUST LIKE, MAN, I'M JUST ACTING
LIKE I'M OKAY, BUT I'M NOT.
BECAUSE I HAVE SOMETHING I NEED
TO GET DONE WITH NOW BEFORE I
MOVE ON AND BE THE BEST
PERFORMER I CAN.
>> YOU'RE ASKING ME IF JEFF
HARDY EARNED MY RESPECT WHEN HE
CAME BACK TO PRO WRESTLING?
I GUESS YOU GOTTA RESPECT
ANYBODY WHO GOES THROUGH SUCH A
HARD TIME IN THEIR LIFE,
STRUGGLING WITH DEMONS FOR SO
LONG, AND PUT IT BEHIND HIM AND
BE ABLE TO COME BACK TO THE
BUSINESS THAT THEY LOVE, TO THE
BUSINESS THAT THEY'RE PASSIONATE
ABOUT.
BE ABLE TO CLIMB THE LADDER OF
SUCCESS AGAIN AND BE ABLE TO
BECOME THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPION.
>> THE TIME IN MY LIFE HAD TO BE
ABLE TO BOIL OVER, WHICH I'LL BE
HONEST, AT VICTORY ROAD IT
BOILED OVER.
FOR ME I WAS JUST FRESH IN
COMING BACK.
A FEW MATCHES UNDER MY BELT.
I AM THE WORLD CHAMPION AND HERE
I'M REPRESENTING TNA ON A PAY
PER VIEW.
IT'S JUST NOT A GOOD SITUATION.
JEFF HAD PERSONAL TROUBLES AND
THINGS GOING ON.
MAN, I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE, I'VE
BEEN THERE.
YOU KNOW, I'VE BEEN THERE.
SO, I'M NOT GOING TO POINT MY
FINGER AND JUDGE ANYBODY.
I HAD COMPASSION FOR HIM THAT
NIGHT, I REALLY DID.
I HATED THAT IT HAD TO HAPPEN.
I HATED IT BECAUSE I LOVE JEFF
SO MUCH.
AND I WANTED TO GIVE THE
WRESTLING FANS WHAT THEY
DESERVED TO HAVE.
I KNOW JEFF DID TOO, BUT HE JUST
WASN'T AT A PLACE WHERE HE WAS
GOING TO BE ABLE TO DELIVER
THAT.
>> YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE
TALK ABOUT HOW JEFF HARDY REALLY
DOESN'T DESERVE TO BE IN THE
SPOT THAT HE'S IN BECAUSE OF
WHAT HAPPENED AT THE PAY PER
VIEW, THE POSITION THAT HE PUT
THE COMPANY IN.
TO ME I'M ALWAYS GIVE THE GUY
THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.
JEFF HARDY KIND OF EARNED MY
RESPECT BECAUSE I'VE BEEN ON THE
ROAD WITH HIM AND I'VE SEEN HOW
HE STEPPED IT UP.
HE'S TOOK IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL,
HE'S YOU KNOW, HE'S GOT HIS
FAMILY NOW, SO HE WANTS TO BE A
BETTER MAN.
WHEN A GUY LIKE THAT DOES
SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND STEPS
UP, YOU CAN'T HAVE NOTHING BUT
RESPECT FOR THE GUY.
♪♪
>> I NEEDED TO COME HOME AND BE
WITH MY DAUGHTER AND MY WIFE.
I NEEDED THAT.
I NEEDED TO GET AWAY FROM THE
SPOTLIGHT, ANYTHING INVOLVED
WITH TELEVISION.
AND JUST COME BACK AND GET BACK
TO MY ROOTS AND STRAIGHTEN MY
LIFE OUT.
>> AFTER HIS COLLAPSE IN MARCH
OF 2011, JEFF HARDY RETURNED TO
THE RING SIX MONTHS LATER IN
HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA.
>> WHEN I RETURNED IN
HUNTSVILLE, UH, IT WAS A HELL OF
A NIGHT, MAN, I DON'T THINK I'VE
EVER BEEN THAT NERVOUS.
[CHEERING]
>> I HAVE TO THANK THE NETWORK
FIRST AND FOREMOST FOR LETTING
ME COME OUT HERE AND TALK FOR A
MINUTE.
IT WON'T TAKE LONG.
I GET NERVOUS SOMETIMES WHEN I
HAVE TO GO OUT TO THAT RING, BUT
THAT NIGHT TOPPED IT ALL.
THE LAST TIME I WAS SAW IN THIS
RING I WAS PATHETIC, I WAS
MESSED UP.
KNOWING THAT TNA PRETTY MUCH
DEBUTED IN THAT SAME BUILDING
AND I WAS PRETTY MUCH DEBUTING
THE NEW JEFF HARDY.
AND I HAD SO MUCH TO PROVE FROM
THAT POINT ON.
I HAD A MAIN EVENT MATCH WITH A
GUY I LOOKED UP TO FOR A LONG
TIME.
AND I FAILED MISERABLY.
I LET EVERYBODY DOWN.
I LET EVERYBODY DOWN.
ALL I CAN DO IS ASK, GIVE ME ONE
MORE SHOT.
[CHEERING]
>> BUT I'LL ALWAYS, WHEN I THINK
ABOUT THAT MOMENT, THAT NIGHT,
IT'S CRAZY HOW MUCH THE FANS
HAVE SUPPORTED ME.
EVEN THAT NIGHT THEY WERE JUST
EXCITED TO SEE ME BACK.
AND I FELT THAT LOVE RIGHT AWAY,
BUT I KNEW I HAD A LONG RUN
AHEAD OF ME AND I HAD A LOT TO
DO.
>> AN EMOTIONAL JEFF HARDY STOOD
IN FRONT OF MILLIONS OF FANS
ASKING FOR ONE MORE CHANCE.
HARDY KNEW THAT LOST TIME IS
NEVER FOUND AGAIN AND HIS PATH
TO REDEMPTION STARTED WHEN THE
ROAR OF THE FANS WELCOMED HIM
BACK WITH OPEN ARMS.
>> IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN FATE, IT
MIGHT HAVE BEEN LUCK, I'M NOT
SURE WHAT IT WAS.
BUT WHATEVER IT WAS, IT WAS
RIGHT.
TNA GAVE ME, ALL THE BOYS IN THE
BACK, EVERYBODY GAVE ME ONE MORE
SHOT.
THEN I'D WROTE A SONG THAT I
WOULD COME OUT TO FOR THE REST
OF THAT YEAR.
2012 HAS BEEN SUCH A GREAT YEAR,
AND IT ALL STARTED THERE.
>> ON NOVEMBER 11TH THESE TWO
MEN WILL COME FACE TO FACE YET
AGAIN IN ONE OF THE MOST
ANTICIPATED REMATCHES OF 2012.
>> ANYTIME YOU PUT AUSTIN ARIES
AND JEFF HARDY IN A RING, IT'S
GOING TO BE GREAT.
>> WHO WILL WALK AWAY WITH THE
TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPIONSHIP?
>> I'M AM THE GREATER
COMPETITOR, I'M THE GREATER
PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER.
I'M THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER
LIVED.
>> TNA WRESTLING AND DIRECT AUTO
INSURANCE PRESENT TURNING POINT
LIVE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH ONLY
ON PAY PER VIEW.
THE SELF-PROCLAIMED GREATEST MAN
THAT HAS EVER LIVED KNOWS THAT
OPPORTUNITY SELDOM KNOCKS TWICE.
>> THE THING THAT SEPARATES THE
PRETENDERS FROM THE
PROFESSIONALS IS NOT WHAT YOU DO
IN THE RING, IT'S WHAT YOU DO
OUTSIDE THE RING.
I THINK ANYBODY THAT'S A
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE KNOWS
THAT'S WHERE YOU REALLY WIN OR
LOSE YOUR FIGHT, THAT'S WHERE
YOU WIN OR LOSE YOUR MATCH,
THAT'S WHERE YOU WIN OR LOSE
YOUR GAME.
IT'S NOT SO MUCH BETWEEN THE
LINES OR BETWEEN THE ROPES, IT'S
WHAT YOU DO EVERYWHERE ELSE.
I WASN'T MAYBE NECESSARILY
BLESSED WITH THE GENETICS OF
SIZE.
YOU KNOW, I COULDN'T GET A JOB
JUST BECAUSE I WAS 6'4", 240
POUNDS.
WHEN I STARTED IN THIS BUSINESS
I WEIGHED 150 POUNDS.
I OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T LOOK LIKE I
BELONGED, I DIDN'T LOOK LIKE A
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE.
BUT I'VE DEDICATED MYSELF THE
LAST TWELVE YEARS.
I'VE LEARNED ABOUT NUTRITION,
LEARNED ABOUT EXERCISE AND ABOUT
THE THINGS I HAD TO DO TO REALLY
BE A PROFESSIONAL, TO REALLY BE
THE BEST.
I'VE BEEN I WARS, YOU KNOW,
SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE AT TNA.
I'VE BEEN IN WITH BULLY RAY,
I'VE BEEN IN WITH SAMOA JOE,
ULTIMATE X MATCHES.
I'VE ALWAYS FOUND A WAY TO WIN.
>> FOR A YEAR ARIES DOMINATED
THE COMPETITION IN TNA, WHICH
LED TO THE ONE OPPORTUNITY THAT
ELUDED HIM HIS ENTIRE CAREER, A
TNA WORLD TITLE SHOT.
>> SET HIM UP.
BRAIN BUSTER.
STRAIGHT DOWN!
BRAIN BUSTER, HERE WE GO!
HERE'S TWO.
YES!
HE DID IT!
[CHANTING]
♪♪
>> ON A NIGHT WHEN THE X
DIVISION WAS IN THE SPOTLIGHT.
IT'S THE MAN WHO RELINQUISHED
HIS X DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP,
AUSTIN ARIES, TO BECOME WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION.
>> AND FOR THE LAST EIGHT MONTHS
THERE'S BEEN A BUZZ GOING ON
ABOUT IMPACT WRESTLING.
FOR ABOUT THE LAST YEAR THERE'S
BEEN AN ENERGY ABOUT IMPACT
WRESTLING.
AND I KNOW THE PEOPLE HERE IN
THE IMPACT ZONE, THE PEOPLE
WATCHING AT HOME, PROFESSIONAL
WRESTLING FANS EVERYWHERE FEEL
THAT WE'RE READY FOR THE NEXT
BOOM PERIOD.
AND AUSTIN ARIES IS THE MAN TO
LEAD IMPACT WRESTLING AND
PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING INTO THE
NEXT BOOM PERIOD.
YOU SEE, MY VICTORY AT
DESTINATION X, IT WAS BIGGER
THAN THIS COMPANY.
YOU SEE, I GOT MESSAGES, I GOT
TEXTS, I GOT PHONE CALLS FROM
HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES, FROM NFL
ATHLETES.
I EVEN GOT CONGRATULATIONS FROM
WORLD CHAMPIONS FROM OTHER
WRESTLING PROMOTIONS
CONGRATULATING ME ON MY
ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
>> AUSTIN ARIES RUBS ME THE
WRONG WAY BECAUSE HIS EGO IS
JUST SO OUT OF CONTROL.
YOU KNOW, THE RIGHT BIT OF
ARROGANCE IS ALWAYS GOOD, BUT HE
JUST TAKES IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
DON'T GET ME WRONG, HE'S GREAT.
HE CAN BACK IT UP.
BUT IT'S JUST OVERBOARD, MAN.
AND WITH ME I'VE ALWAYS BEEN
ABOUT MODESTY AND STAYING
GROUNDED.
YOU KNOW, DOWN TO EARTH.
BUT HE IS LIKE ON OTHER PLANETS,
MAN.
HE WAS THE WORLD CHAMPION AND HE
LET PEOPLE KNOW IT EACH AND
EVERY NIGHT, HE LET PEOPLE KNOW
THAT HE WAS THE BEST.
YOU KNOW, AND NECESSARILY, AS
FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, BECAUSE
EVERY TIME YOU WALK OUT THERE
WITH THAT TITLE IT'S OBVIOUS
WHAT AND WHO YOU ARE.
>> ON NOVEMBER 11TH THESE TWO
MEN WILL COME FACE TO FACE YET
AGAIN IN ONE OF THE MOST
ANTICIPATED REMATCHES OF 2012.
>> ANYTIME YOU PUT AUSTIN ARIES
AND JEFF HARDY IN A RING, IT'S
GOING TO BE GREAT.
>> WHO WILL WALK AWAY WITH THE
TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPIONSHIP?
>> I'M AM THE GREATER
COMPETITOR, I'M THE GREATER
PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER.
I'M THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER
LIVED.
>> TNA WRESTLING AND DIRECT AUTO
INSURANCE PRESENT TURNING POINT
LIVE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH ONLY
ON PAY PER VIEW.
AUSTIN ARIES TURNED UP THE HEAT
IN THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO BOUND
FOR GLORY.
HE MADE IT KNOWN HE WAS NOT A
FAN OF THE CHARISMATIC ENIGMA
AND HIS ROYAL TREATMENT IN TNA.
>> YOU KNOW, REALLY THE
ANIMOSITY ISN'T BUILT UP TOWARDS
JEFF PERSONALLY.
IT MORE THE ANIMOSITY THAT'S
BUILT UP WITH THE WAY THAT
PEOPLE TREAT JEFF.
IT'S NOT ANYTHING THAT JEFF GOES
AND ASKS FOR.
HE DOESN'T ASK FOR SPECIAL
PRIVILEGES, HE DOESN'T ASK TO BE
TREATED ANY DIFFERENTLY THAN THE
REST OF US.
BUT THE REALITY IS, HE IS.
YOU SEE, SINCE THE MOMENT I'VE
WON THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPIONSHIP, JEFF HARDY, I'VE
HAD PEOPLE IN THIS COMPANY
TELLING ME WHAT TO THINK.
THEY'VE BEEN TELLING ME HOW TO
ACT, THEY'VE BEEN TELLING ME
WHAT TO SAY.
THEY'VE BEEN TELLING AUSTIN
ARIES TO EMBRACE THESE FANS.
THEY'VE BEEN TELLING AUSTIN
ARIES WHO HE HAD TO BE AS THE
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION.
I WAITED TOO LONG TO GET BACK TO
THE CORE OF WHAT AUSTIN ARIES
IS.
I GOT TOO LONG TO TRY TO GET
UNDER THE SKIN OF JEFF HARDY.
I WAITED TOO LONG TO TRY TO
THROW HIM OFF HIS GAME PLAN BY
TRYING TO GET PERSONAL.
YEAH, I TOOK A COUPLE OF CHEAP
SHOTS.
THAT'S USUALLY NOT REALLY MY
STYLE, BUT I FELT LIKE
PSYCHOLOGICALLY THAT MAYBE
THAT'S WHAT I HAD TO DO.
>> AUSTIN ARIES, A MAN THAT
ROOTS FOR HIMSELF.
>> BOUND FOR GLORY MAIN EVENTS,
JEFF HARDY VERSUS AUSTIN ARIES.
YEAH, THAT WAS A GREAT,
SPECTACULAR MATCH.
AND THE INTERESTING PART OF THAT
MATCH THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE
WEREN'T EXPECTING WAS THE SPLIT
CROWD.
YOU HAD A LARGE CONTINGENCY OF
PEOPLE THAT WERE SUPPORTING
AUSTIN ARIES, NOT BECAUSE I
ASKED THEM TO, BUT BECAUSE I'M
THAT GREAT.
[CHANTING]
>> EVERYBODY HAS AN OPINION
TONIGHT AT BOUND FOR GLORY.
>> WHAT CHANGED MY WHOLE
MENTALITY, I MEAN OVERALL, WAS
THE CROWD THAT NIGHT.
IT WAS JUST SOMETHING THAT I'VE
NEVER REALLY EXPERIENCED.
I MEAN, I DON'T EVEN THINK I GOT
THAT MANY BOOS WHEN I WAS THE
ANTICHRIST.
BUT MAN, IT WAS THE RIGHT AMOUNT
OF ANGER, THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF
SADNESS, THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF
STRESS AND NERVES THAT JUST CAME
INTO THE PERFECT PLAY OF THIS IS
GOING TO BE A SPECIAL NIGHT.
>> HARDY IS WITH THE SIT OUT
FRONT SUPLEX.
>> YOU CAN HEAR THAT MUCH TO THE
CHAGRIN OF AUSTIN ARIES FANS.
>> WE'RE NO LONGER IN A DAY AND
AGE WHERE EVERYTHING IS BLACK
AND WHITE.
YOU CAN'T GO THROUGH LIFE GOING
THIS IS RIGHT AND THE IS WRONG
BECAUSE IT ALL COMES DOWN TO
CIRCUMSTANCES AND PERSPECTIVES.
AND ME AND JEFF HARDY, AS MUCH
AS WE'RE ALIKE IN A LOT OF WAYS.
WHICH I DON'T THINK A LOT OF
PEOPLE UNDERSTAND ARTISTICALLY
AND CREATIVELY THE WAY OUR MINDS
WORK, WE'RE VERY SEPARATE AND
DIFFERENT PEOPLE WHEN IT COMES
TO, LET'S SAY, THE BEAT OF THE
DRUM THAT WE MARCH TO.
I'M A VERY POLARIZING FIGURE.
I'M A VERY STRAIGHT FORWARD AND
HONEST FIGURE.
AND PEOPLE EITHER MAKE THE
DETERMINATION THEY EITHER LIKE
AUSTIN ARIES OR THEY HATE AUSTIN
ARIES.
THERE'S NOT A WHOLE LOT OF
MIDDLE GROUND.
AND I THINK JEFF HARDY'S THE
SAME WAY.
HE HAS HIS LEGIONS OF FANS.
HE REALLY SPEAK TO A LOT OF THE
PEOPLE OUT THERE, ESPECIALLY THE
YOUNGER GENERATION, THE KIDS WHO
ARE TRYING TO FIND THEMSELVES
BECAUSE THEY CAN IDENTIFY WITH
JEFF HARDY.
BECAUSE HE DOES AND IS A UNIQUE
PERSON WHO DOES THINGS ON HIS
OWN.
AND FOR THOSE PEOPLE, HIS
CREATURES AS HE LIKE TO CALL
THEM, WHO ARE SEARCHING FOR
THEIR IDENTITIES, THEY CAN
RELATE TO THAT.
YOU SEE, BUT THAT'S NOT MY FAN
BASE.
I HAVE A MORE SOPHISTICATED, A
MORE SURE OF THEMSELVES FAN BASE
WHO KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND KNOW
WHO THEY LIKE.
AND THOSE PEOPLE, THEY LIKE
AUSTIN ARIES, NOT JEFF HARDY.
>> JEFF HARDY, A MAN THAT PEOPLE
ROOT FOR.
HIS INSPIRATIONAL COMEBACK HAS
LED HIM DOWN TO A ROAD TO
REDEMPTION AND THE TNA WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.
WILL HIS MOMENTUM CONTINUE AT
TURNING POINT?
>> THERE IS SOMETHING INSIDE OF
ME, UM, THAT PEOPLE RELATE TO,
OR LOVE, OR WANT TO FIGURE OUT.
BUT HONESTLY, I CAN'T FIGURE IT
OUT.
AND I THINK THAT'S THE BEAUTY OF
BEING AN ENIGMA.
BECAUSE I AM.
I AM AS STRANGE AS, YOU KNOW, AS
YOU CAN POSSIBLY BE.
AND I GUESS THAT'S THE ARTIST IN
ME.
BECAUSE SOMETIMES I DRIVE MYSELF
CRAZY ABOUT WHAT I WANT TO DO,
WHERE I WANT TO GO, WHAT DO I
WANT TO ACHIEVE AND JUST SO MANY
TIMES I HAVE THE FEELING THAT
I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
THEN TO THINK ABOUT, YOU KNOW,
THE PERSPECTIVE IS FOR MY FANS
AND ALL THE CREATURES, HOW THEY
LOOK UP TO ME AND THINK I'M
COOL.
IT JUST BLOWS MY MIND THAT I'M
AT THAT LEVEL NOW IN MY CAREER.
HONESTLY I DON'T KNOW IF I'LL
EVER BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN WHAT IT
IS IN HERE THAT MAKES ME WHO I
AM.
>> ON NOVEMBER 11TH THESE TWO
MEN WILL COME FACE TO FACE YET
AGAIN IN ONE OF THE MOST
ANTICIPATED REMATCHES OF 2012.
>> ANYTIME YOU PUT AUSTIN ARIES
AND JEFF HARDY IN A RING, IT'S
GOING TO BE GREAT.
>> WHO WILL WALK AWAY WITH THE
TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPIONSHIP?
>> I'M AM THE GREATER
COMPETITOR, I'M THE GREATER
PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER.
I'M THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER
LIVED.
>> TNA WRESTLING AND DIRECT AUTO
INSURANCE PRESENT TURNING POINT
LIVE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH ONLY
ON PAY PER VIEW.
>> BEEN CHASING THE WORLD TITLE
FOR OVER A YEAR NOW.
AND OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS
I'VE REALLY EVALUATED MY
DESTINY.
THIS SUNDAY I'M GOING TO
COMPLETE IT.
I'M GOING TO COMPLETE MY JOURNEY
TO SUCCESS.
I'M GOING TO GIVE THE CREATURES
WHAT THEY'VE BEEN WAITING FOR
AND GIVE MYSELF WHAT I DESERVE,
AND THAT'S THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPIONSHIP.
THEN I'LL BE THE BEST WRESTLER
ON PLANET EARTH.
>> I GOT SOME THINGS I WANT TO
SAY.
YOU SEE, SINCE THE MOMENT I WON
THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPIONSHIP, JEFF HARDY, I'VE
HAD PEOPLE IN THIS COMPANY
TELLING ME WHAT TO THINK.
THEY'VE BEEN TELLING ME HOW TO
ACT.
THEY'VE BEEN TELLING ME WHAT TO
SAY.
THEY'VE BEEN TELLING AUSTIN
ARIES TO EMBRACE THESE FANS.
THEY'VE BEEN TELLING AUSTIN
ARIES WHO HE HAD TO BE AS THE
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION.
AND AS OF RIGHT NOW, ALL THAT
CRAP'S DONE WITH.
I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THIS
SPECIAL TREATMENT THAT JEFF
HARDY GETS.
SEE, I KNOW WHEN I'M BEING SET
UP TO FAIL.
HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE, JEFF,
YOU SEE I'VE ALWAYS WORKED BEST
WHEN IT'S ME AGAINST THE SYSTEM.
SO, YOU SEE, AT BOUND FOR GLORY
WHEN IT'S ME AGAINST THE WORLD,
THE ONLY FAILURE IS GOING TO BE
YOU.
BECAUSE UNTIL YOU BEAT ME, THE
ONLY FAILURE IS THE MAN YOU SEE
IN THE MIRROR WHEN YOU PAINT ON
THAT SILLY MAKEUP.
>> ON OCTOBER 14TH BOTH MEN WERE
READY FOR WAR AS THEY WALKED
INTO THE RING AT BOUND FOR
GLORY.
>> WAS BOUND FOR GLORY THE
DEFINING MOMENT?
I DON'T THINK SO.
THAT'S FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO
DETERMINE.
I THINK I'VE DEFINED WHO I AM
AND WHAT I'M ABOUT.
FROM THE DAY I WALKED INTO THIS
COMPANY NOW, WHICH WAS A YEAR
AND A HALF AGO, I'VE DOMINATED
EVERYWHERE I'VE BEEN.
>> THIS MATCH WOULD MARK A
DEFINING MOMENT IN BOTH MEN'S
CAREERS.
>> AUSTIN ARIES VERSUS JEFF
HARDY AT BOUND FOR GLORY 2012 IS
BY FAR ONE OF MY BEST MATCHES
EVER.
ESPECIALLY, I'VE BEEN KNOWN FOR
ALWAYS BEING THE SMALLER GUY IN
A LOT OF, YOU KNOW, MY FAMOUS
MATCHES.
BUT KIND OF HAVING ROLES
REVERSED THAT NIGHT IS WHAT MADE
IT SPECIAL.
I WAS ABLE TO DO A FEW THINGS
THAT I HAVEN'T DONE IN A WHILE
AND DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY WITH
THE SMALLER GUY.
BUT YEAH, BY FAR IT'S ONE OF THE
BEST MATCHES I'VE EVER HAD.
>> I'D LIKE TO THINK AT THIS
POINT I CAN STOP PROVING MYSELF
OR HAVING TO DEFINE MYSELF OR MY
CAREER.
IF THERE'S ANY DOUBTERS LEFT,
WHEN WE HIT TURNING POINT, ALL
THEIR QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED
ONCE AND FOR ALL WHEN I BEAT
JEFF HARDY FOR THE WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.
>> WOULD JEFF HARDY BE ABLE TO
CALL HIMSELF WORLD CHAMPION YET
AGAIN, OR WOULD AUSTIN ARIES BE
ABLE TO CRUSH HARDY'S FAIRYTALE
OF REDEMPTION AND LAY CLAIM TO
THE BIGGEST VICTORY OF HIS
CAREER?
WHEN THE TNA CHAMPION AUSTIN
ARIES WAS PUSHED, HE PUSHED
BACK.
HE TOOK HIS INTENSITY LEVEL,
FOCUS AND RING RAGE TO THE NEXT
LEVEL.
AND HE WAS CONFIDENT HE WOULD
WALK OUT OF PHOENIX WITH THE
GOLD.
>> BOUND FOR GLORY MAIN EVENT,
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE.
IS TONIGHT THE NIGHT THAT JEFF
HARDY WRITES THE FINAL CHAPTER
OF THE REDEMPTION STORY?
>> JEFF'S A LITTLE PISSED OFF AT
THE CHAMPION.
I THINK YOU MIGHT SEE A LITTLE
BIT OF A DIFFERENT SIDE TO JEFF
HARDY HERE TONIGHT.
♪♪
>> INTENSITY OF THIS MAIN EVENT
MATCH BEFITTING THE WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE SHOWDOWN AT
BOUND FOR GLORY.
YOU GOTTA LEAVE IT ALL OUT HERE,
LEAVE IT ALL OUT ON THE LINE ON
THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE
MATCH.
FIRST TIME THAT I'VE SENSED AS
MUCH FRUSTRATION ON THE PART OF
ARIES.
[CHANTING]
>> THIS IS AWESOME.
>> DID YOU SEE THE BACK OF HIS
HEAD?
♪♪
>> BRAIN BUSTER.
>> THE MOVE THAT WON HIM THE
TITLE.
>> WHOA!
>> THAT WOULD BE THE DEFINITION
OF RESILIENT, THAT YOU ALWAYS
CALL JEFF HARDY.
>> THE TWIST OF FATE.
WHAT AN AMAZING MATCH!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, JEFF
HARDY.
>> RIGHT NOW I AM THE BEST
PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER ON THIS
PLANET.
CREATURES, WE DID IT!
>> AFTER CAPTURING THE TITLE AT
BOUND FOR GLORY, JEFF HARDY WAS
READY FOR ANOTHER REIGN AS
CHAMPION.
>> NOBODY CAN DOUBT AND SAY THAT
I'M NOT DIFFERENT.
I AM.
I'M ORIGINAL.
I'M AS ORIGINAL AS YOU CAN
POSSIBLY BE.
IF THERE'S ANYBODY THAT SHOULD
HAVE THEIR OWN MODIFIED VERSION
OF THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, I
THINK IT'S ME.
>> THAT'S NOT MY WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE.
THAT'S SOME OTHER WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, GETTING
THERE, THAT'S ONLY THE BEGINNING
OF THE BATTLE, JEFF.
YOU KNOW THAT, I KNOW THAT.
NOW YOU HAVE TO BE THE MAN THAT
SITS UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT, YOU
HAVE TO BE THE MAN WITH A TARGET
ON YOUR FACE.
YOU HAVE TO BE THE MAN UNDER THE
MICROSCOPE.
YOU HAVE THE PRESSURE, YOU HAVE
THE STRESS.
IT'S ALL ON YOUR SHOULDERS.
LOOK AT THIS.
YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT
THIS, JEFF?
IT'S A SPITTING IMAGE OF YOU.
YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK OF THIS
SPITTING IMAGE OF YOU?
>> WHEN AUSTIN SPAT ON MY TITLE,
JUST RAGE, ANGER, IT WASN'T
NECESSARY, IT WAS JUST ONCE
AGAIN.
AND I TOLD HIM THAT NIGHT, I WAS
LIKE, TAKE A LOOK AT THE FACE
YOU CAN'T BE, AND I JUST HAVE TO
GET A LITTLE ARROGANT MYSELF
SOMETIMES WHEN PEOPLE COME AT ME
LIKE THAT.
BECAUSE IT'S NOT COOL.
THAT WAS MY CELEBRATION THAT
NIGHT AND WHATEVER HE HAD TO SAY
COULD HAVE WAITED UNTIL A LATER
DAY.
>> I MEAN, IF I COULD HAVE
WALKED OUT HERE AFTER BEATING
BOBBY ROODE AND HAD MY OWN
DESIGNER BELT, YOU DON'T THINK
SOMEBODY WOULD HAVE SAID
SOMETHING TO ME?
DIDN'T SEEM TO HAPPEN TO JEFF.
SO, THAT'S OKAY.
IT'S GOOD THAT HE MADE HIS OWN
BELT.
BECAUSE HE'LL STILL HAVE
SOMETHING IN HIS POSSESSION WHEN
I BEAT HIM AT TURNING POINT,
WHEN I TAKE BACK MY TNA WORLD
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP, THE
REAL ONE, NOT THE FAKE ASS BELT
HE'S CARRYING AROUND.
YES, THEY PLAY FAVORITES.
DO I THINK THAT'S SOME BIG
REVELATION?
DO I THINK I'M TELLING ANYBODY
SOMETHING THEY DON'T ALREADY
KNOW?
IN EVERY ASPECT IN LIFE, IN
EVERY JOB AND EVERY EMPLOYER,
EVERY SCHOOL, EVERY BUSINESS, NO
MATTER WHAT YOU DO, THERE'S
ALWAYS GOING TO BE FAVORITES.
THERE'S THE OLD ADAGE, LIFE
ISN'T FAIR.
BUT SEE, WHEN LIFE ISN'T FAIR,
WELL, SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIND
A WAY TO SKEW THE ODDS BACK TO
THE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE IT.
I THINK THAT'S ME.
I HAVE AS MANY FANS AS JEFF
HARDY, DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU'RE
LOCATED SOME WILL SAY THAT'S NOT
TRUE.
WELL, GO POP IN BOUND FOR GLORY.
LISTEN TO THE CROWD.
I HAD JUST AS MANY SUPPORTERS
THERE AS JEFF HARDY.
I AM JUST AS VALUABLE TO THIS
COMPANY AS JEFF HARDY IS, WAS,
OR WILL BE.
SO, YEAH, I THINK THERE IS SOME
FAVORITISM IN THIS COMPANY, I
THINK IT'S ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY.
>> ON NOVEMBER 11TH THESE TWO
MEN WILL COME FACE TO FACE YET
AGAIN IN ONE OF THE MOST
ANTICIPATED REMATCHES OF 2012.
>> WHY WILL AUSTIN ARIES WIN THE
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
AT TURNING POINT?
VERY SIMPLY BECAUSE I AM THE
GREATER COMPETITOR, I'M THE
GREATER PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER.
I'M THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER
LIVED.
>> TWO MEN AT TURNING POINTS IN
THEIR CAREERS.
WHO WILL WALK AWAY WITH THE TNA
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP?
>> AT TURNING POINT ARIES-HARDY
TWO, I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S GOING
TO BE BETTER THAN BOUND FOR
GLORY.
I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S POSSIBLE TO
BE BETTER, BUT IT WILL DAMN SURE
BE RIGHT UP THERE.
>> JEFF HARDY, YOU RAISED YOUR
LEVEL AT BOUND FOR GLORY TO A
PLACE YOU'VE NEVER RAISED IT
BEFORE.
I BROUGHT THAT OUT OF YOU.
>> ANY TIME YOU PUT AUSTIN ARIES
AND JEFF HARDY IN A RING AND
THEY'RE GOING TO GO AT IT, I
MEAN, IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT.
REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE CROWD
ATMOSPHERE IS, THE PROFESSIONAL
WRESTLING ACTION THAT WILL TAKE
PLACE WILL BE MEMORABLE AND WILL
BE UNFORGOTTEN.
