- TNA posted the storyline video of TNA President Dixie Carter reacting to a video of AJ Styles in Japan with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Carter admitted that Styles has gotten under her skin "a little bit," and said that he's not defending the TNA title in Japan, but rather the "AJS" title. Carter said that Styles doesn't have the right to be displaying the TNA World Championship title, and that she will be letting her attorneys deal with the situation.
- TNA also issued the following press release regarding the company's return to Universal Studios in Orlando next week for a batch of Impact Wrestling TV tapings:

The stars of Spike TV's must-see Thursday night action-packed show, IMPACT WRESTLING, will compete at Universal Studios Soundstage 19 in Orlando, Fla., for six upcoming shows Nov. 21-23, and Dec. 3-5.

"Fans in the Orlando area, as well as Universal Studios park patrons from around the world, have an incredible opportunity to be part of these globally televised events as TNA cameras return to Florida," said TNA President Dixie Carter. "TNA has broadcast countless hours of unrivaled and unforgettable professional wrestling from this great location over the last decade, and we are excited to be back as we launch the next evolution of how fans will experience our programming through the #IMPACT365 initiative."

Two incredible TNA World Title Tournament matches, with stipulations determined through a spin of the Wheel of Dixie, are scheduled for "Turning Point," including a Falls Count Anywhere match between Magnus and Samoa Joe, and a Bull Rope match between former tag partners "The Cowboy" James Storm and "The IT Factor" Bobby Roode. In addition, a grudge match between former Aces and Eights member Mr. Anderson and President of the Club Bully Ray is on the card.
