Re: AJ Styles
Personally, I don't think he's heading for a heel turn. TNA has an abundance of top heels and is nowhere near as well-stocked with good faces.
Besides, Aries vs AJ is the dream feud people want to see and if that is coming in 2013 then it makes sense for Aries to be heel and AJ to be face.
I think all they're doing is giving his 2013 push some context. If they pushed him without this "worst year ever" angle, then it would just be yet another AJ push - yet another one of many. so who cares? Whereas giving him this bad year at least gives him the angle of "AJ pluckily fights back against the odds," which I think is the direction they're going to head in.
