Before the start of the show, footage of Bobby Roode assaulting “Cowboy” James Storm at a bar in Orlando was streamed on #Impact 365.
Turning Point 2013 begins with TNA President Dixie Carter announcing her appearance in Sports Illustrated Magazine, and her continued rants against TNA World Heavyweight Champion “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles. “Cowboy” James Storm arrived and demanded a Florida Deathmatch against Bobby Roode. Dixie rejected it because it didn’t happen on TNA soil. Storm threatened to call the police, and Dixie changed her mind.
