Rich Swann, Rohit Raju Retain at Turning Point, Joe Doering Makes Impact Debut

Current Impact World Champion Rich Swann and X-Division Champion Rohit Raju were the only champions who successfully retained at Turning Point.

Turning Point saw all four of the major Impact titles defended and the Impact Knockouts Championship and the Tag Team Championships changed hand.

Swann, however, was able to retain against Sami Callihan in the main event of the show. The match saw Ken Shamrock and Eddie Edwards attempting to interfere, though the two ended up brawling away from the ring.

Shortly after, Swann was able to land a total of four superkicks on Callihan to retain the World Championship.

Rohit Raju was also able to defend his X-Division Championship on the show. Raju had a “Defeat Rohit” Challenge scheduled, which was answered by Cousin Jake of the Deaners.

Raju retained against Cousin Jake, hitting a high flying kick and pinning the challenger.

After the match, however, former TNT and All Japan star, Joe Doering made his Impact debut.

Doering seems to have aligned himself with former Impact World Champion Eric Young. The two came down to the ring and took out the Deaners.

Doering had originally debuted in TNA in 2005 and stayed there about a year. He then went to Japan where he became the Triple Crown Heavyweight Champion twice as part of All Japan. He also held the promotion’s Tag Team Championship four times with a variety of partners.
