Final Resolution 2012 was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling that was held on December 9, 2012 at the Impact Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida. It was the ninth annual Final Resolution event.
Final Resolution featured professional wrestling matches involving different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds, plots, and storylines that will be played out on Total Nonstop Action Wrestling's (TNA) television programs. Wrestlers will portray villains or heroes as they follow a series of events that build tension, and culminate into a wrestling match or series of matches.
The main angle entering Final Resolution involves Bobby Roode going after defending champion Jeff Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. At Turning Point, James Storm defeated A.J. Styles and Bobby Roode in a Triple Threat match to earn his shot at the World Championship. On the following Impact Wrestling episode during Storm's speech about succeeding through adversity, Roode interrupted and upset his rival, Storm, as part of a manipulative way for Storm to place his title shot on the line in a match between them later that night. As a result, Roode prevailed over Storm using an exposed turnbuckle and a roll-up to snatch the victory and essentially assume Storm's title shot.
Another continuous feud being featured at the event is between A.J. Styles and Christopher Daniels. At Turning Point, Styles suffered a huge loss in a stipulated Triple Threat contender's match, where the wrestler pinned would be excommunicated from the World Championship scene until Bound for Glory 2013. On the November 15 edition of Impact Wrestling, with emotions running high, Styles expressed feelings over an upsetting year having to deal with allegations thrown at him as well as coming close to winning the BFG Series. Daniels and Kazarian, who had set up and blown such allegations out of proportion to defame and distract Styles, took the chance to mock and insult him calling Styles a "failure". Styles, knowing how many times he fought and beat Daniels, eventually challenged Daniels to one last match to decide who the better man is. Daniels, proud of his momentum with Kazarian throughout the year, later agreed to the match.
The Knockouts match heading into Final Resolution is Mickie James versus TNA Women's Knockout Champion Tara. On the November 15 edition of Impact Wrestling, Mickie James made her return to the company and defeated Gail Kim, ODB, Madison Rayne, and Miss Tessmacher in a Contender's Battle Royal to gain a shot at the TNA Knockout Championship.
