History

Turning Point is a PPV event consisting of a main event and undercard that feature championship matches and other various matches. The first Turning Point was held in 2004, and was the second PPV held by TNA established as an annual PPV. It took place on December 5, 2004 and aired live on PPV. [1] Since then, TNA has held Turning Point annually, producing the event from 2004-2007 in December. Without explanation, however, in 2008 TNA chose to hold the event in November and produce Final Resolution in December. On January 11, 2013, TNA announced that in 2013 will be only four PPVs, dropping Turning Point. [2] Each Turning Point event has been held in an indoor arena, with all events taking place in the United States in Orlando, Florida. All of the events have been held in the TNA Impact! Zone.
