TNA Against All Odds PPV Predictions

The second TNA PPV of the year has come around and on Sunday will present Against All Odds! The event that takes it's props from the the lights of Vegas, but will TNA roll the dice and take some risks?

#1 Contenders Match for the X Division Championship
Zema Ion vs. Jesse Sorensen

These two are the up and comers in the division and both have a point to prove. Ion cost Sorensen his chance of victory at Genesis, so there is a score to settle adding a little history to the match up. There is no doubt that these two will put on an entertaining, high flying match, the crowd seem to be warming to Sorensen but to mix things up Zema Ion should be given the victory as Jesse has faced Austin Aries numerous times over the past couple of months.

Prediction - Zema Ion defeats Jesse Sorensen via pinfall. 

Gunner (w/ Eric Bischoff) vs. Garett Bischoff (w/ Hulk Hogan)

With the non-surprise that Hogan is Garett's trainer, we are being treated to this match-up, which is coming far too early in a storyline that no one cares about. Gunner has been on a decent run recently picking up victories with the help of Ric Flair and then putting them out of action so is taking a step backward to face Garett who is making his PPV debut. With no interest in this match whatsoever, the winner is of no relevance. However, Hogan will have the last laugh, with Garett likely to finish the match with a leg drop (that Hulk is no longer able to do).

Prediction - Garett Bischoff defeats Gunner via pinfall.

Tag Team Championships
Crimson & Matt Morgan (c) vs. Samoa Joe & Magnus


In a rematch from Genesis, the two new teams lock up again. After a series of run-ins and non-title match-ups, Joe and Magnus have been getting at the champions to such an extent that it wouldn't be a total surprise if the challengers walked out of Against All Odds with the title belts around their waists.

Prediction - Samoa Joe & Magnus defeat Crimson & Matt Morgan via pinfall to win the Tag Team Championships.

Kazarian (w/ Daniels) vs. A.J. Styles


In a storyline that is so clouded in mystery that no one actually knows the reason this match is taking place, former tag team partners and stable mates Kaz and Styles will take to the ring because Daniels says so. Despite no logical motivation for Kazarian's heel turn, the match should be an entertaining affair, although it is likely that the finish will involve Daniels allowing Kaz to get the victory. Hopefully, no screwdrivers will be used in the making of this match!

Prediction - Kazarian defeats A.J. Styles via pinfall.

Knockouts Championship
Gail Kim (c) vs Tara

After winning a number one contenders match on Impact Wrestling three weeks ago, Tara finally gets her shot at Gail Kim's Knockout Championship. These two have had many bouts across several promotions and it will most definitely be a good match up. Unfortunately for Tara, it would be the shock of the night if the championship changed hands here. She has got a better chance at silverware when her TNT partner, Brooke Tessmacher, returns and they can both go after Kim's other belt.

Prediction - Gail Kim defeats Tara via pinfall to retain the Knockouts Championship. 

X Division Championship
Austin Aries (c) vs. Alex Shelley


Possibly the highlight of the card. This championship match has two top, high flying athletes going against one another. Despite what should be a quality match-up, it is doubtful that Aries is going to lose. His gimmick as "the greatest man that ever lived" would be deflated were he to lose. Not to mention, Shelley would be put to much better use in the flagging tag team division, which is crying out for the return of the Motor City Machine Guns.

Prediction - Austin Aries defeats Alex Shelley via pinfall to retain the X Division Championship. 

World Heavyweight Championship
Bobby Roode (c) vs. James Storm vs. Bully Ray vs. Jeff Hardy

The main event of the card is an exciting match up, as all the participants have been pushed strongly by management in the past six months and a definite winner isn't easy to predict. Despite having Roode's back, Bully Ray has shown signs that he wants to be the top heel in TNA. On the flip side, James Storm has been the uncontested baby face of the company for the past month, for the most part due to Jeff Hardy being unable to participate on the last two episodes of Impact Wrestling due to them taking place outside of the United States.

These four will unquestionably put on a solid match. Hopefully, the ending will be a clean finish, even if it is Roode getting a surprise pinfall over one of his fallen opponents. Bobby Roode has held on to the World Heavyweight Championship this long and despite the quality and quantity of his opponents, the leader of the selfish generation is likely to walk out on Impact Wrestling next Thursday with the belt still around his waist.

Prediction - Bobby Roode defeats James Storm, Bully Ray and Jeff Hardy via pinfall to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.  

The PPV has a solid card and despite a few names, such as the Olympic Gold Medallist Kurt Angle, not taking part (and the lack yet again of a Television Title match), Against All Odds should provide an entertaining evening of wrestling.
