|Turning Point chronology|
Turning Point (2010) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), that took place on November 7, 2010 at the TNA Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida. It was the seventh event under the Turning Point chronology.
The main event featured Jeff Hardy defending the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Matt Morgan, which Hardy won following the Twist of Hate. The main bouts on the undercard included Jeff Jarrett versus Samoa Joe, which Jarrett won through making Joe pass out to his signature Rear Naked Choke, and in a Ten Man Tag Team match, Fortune (A.J. Styles, Kazarian, Douglas Williams, Robert Roode, and James Storm) battled EV 2.0 (Raven, Rhino, Sabu, Stevie Richards and Brian Kendrick), where Fortune won after Styles executed the Styles Clash on Sabu from the top rope.
Turning Point featured eight professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.
