    It took 10 years but the finnally had a perfect ppv and now can they keep this up 2 weeks after tv show ratings will tell.

  • Porkchop

    I'm happy for Sting, but being inducted into the TNA hall of fame is like getting highest honors in special ed.

    • Aldin94

      Yeah coming from a guy named Porkchop. Haha your sad. Any way i thought the show was Great and congrats Sting.

      • Porkchop

        It's you're, not your. That may have stung a tad if it didn't come from a 12 year old kid who couldn't grammatically find his way out of a wet paper bag.

        • Aldin94

          Surprised you didn’t notice my other typo.Feel smart do ya?

          • Aldin94's mama

            Actually I did notice any way, the unnecessary capitalization of "Great", and the fact that you don't know what a comma is. I didn't want to take the time to list all of them; because unlike you, I have a job.

            I'm on lunch break now, so it's on like Donkey Kong.

            By the way, yes I do feel smart.

          • Angryj

            I didn't know this was a writing course it thought this was a wrestling chat room.

  • Rob Deer

    Smart move to put the most hyped wanna be WWE superstar in your first HOF. Fans have been calling for WCW Stinger to get the nod for the mainstream WWE HOF and TNA beat them to it.

  • Scrub

    After the ppv cut off Sting went back after Roode and drug him to the ring while beating on him. He then threw him in the ring and put the Scorpion Death Lock in the center of the ring until Roode finally taps. Roode is removed from the ring and Sting works the crowd around the ring and then exits the arena after several minutes.

  • Jericlone

    this Joseph Park thing…are they for real? Watching Katie Vick was easier than watching this Joseph Park BS. I felt insulted and was elated that I don’t watch TNA on a regular basis. WWE may have selective memory and ignore giant holes in logic, but this was just demeaning to a standard wrestling fan. How the TNA loyalist put up with Joseph Park and Bubba Ray apparently being the only person on the planet who doesn’t get it is stupid. That entire match/angle aside, the PPV was decent. But a rotten spot in an otherwise great apple is still a rotten apple. Sorry for the rant. The booking down in Orlando is insane (and yes, I know the PPV was in Dallas)

    • mstr_greedy_x

      The whole Joseph park storyline is beyond amazing and entertaining. U obviously critic everything in wrestling in stead of enjoying the entertainment

    • ZackPack

      Get out. Joseph Park is the best thing in TNA.

  • Blake

    Wow after all the trouble sting has ben through they let rhoode beat him shame.!

    • dddddd

      its not shame because sting beat him clean the prior thursday with the scorpion. and why would sting win the title if storm is taking it from roode at bfg(as of now anyway)? doesnt make sense.

  • mstr_greedy_x

    sting deserves to win the title it’s stupid that he would be brought back to go in the hof but not won the title on their tenth anniversary just doesn’t make sense

    • dddddd

      why do exactly wat the fans expect is gonna happen?? if that was the case, roode would have lost title at lockdown to storm.

  • TNAfan

    Thank you TNA. I have been skeptical every since the Hogan/Bischoff beginnings. It's taken a while but things are looking very good. Joseph Park/Abyss….more talent there than I ever imagined. Glad to see the womans division coming back to life too. Give the next generation their shot and keep up the good work!

  • Mishal

    I was really impressed with TNA’s Sacrifice PPV, but the face that they pulled off 2 perfect shows in a row with Slammiversary shows just how TNA’s product is the best wrestling product around at this point in time. Let’s just hope they can follow up with Destination X!

    • dddddd

      dont forget to mention the 4-5 weeks of tv in between the ppv's was awesome,entertaining,and great build.
      i feel sorry for raw going to 3 hrs when they cant even put a solid 2hrs together. dark days coming for them.

    I went to Slammiversary PPV last night and it was an awesome show to watch. Being a lifelong WWE fan I have to admit TNA is the best bang for your buck. The arena was similar to the size of the ECW arena and was the crowd was at roughly 85 percent. The hard camera side was heavily roped off. I was sitting in the nose bleed seats and due to the size of the venue it was a great experience. My seat was ONLY $15 dollars. At the event there was a brown bag special with a new TNA t-shirt/four DVDs/action figure and program for only 30 bucks! Even the concession prices were very reasonable. Water was four bucks while beer was 6 dollars. The crowd was hot with YES! chants and TNA chants.

    Hulk Hogan got a huge pop to start Slammiversary. The promo was a generic promo which lead to X Divison match annouced

    The Austin Aries/Samoa Joe match was a great opener. The crowd was split with dueling chants for Samoa Joe and Austin Aries. The match had great chemistry and a hot crowd.

    The crowd was dead for the Kid Kash/Hernandez match. Hernandez received a decent pop especially during the end of the match. I would have liked to have seen a surprise appearance from Rosita and Sarita.

    I was surprised by the hot crowd reaction for the Robbie E/Robbie T vs Garrett Bischoff/Devon match. The crowd hated Garrett Bischoff. The crowd was chanting to tag Devon the entire time Garrett was in the ring.

    The house mic was too low so anytime there was either an interview or showing the backstage interviews could not be heard.

    Mr Anderson vs Jeff Hardy vs Rob Van Dam – had a mixed crowd as most were pulling for Jeff Hardy or RVD with a few Anderson chants. The match itself had some awkward spots at times. The crowd had a tamed reaction to the Anderson victory. I think the ring chemistry was off. I think a one on one RVD vs Jeff Hardy match would have ben better.

    Crimson vs Cowboys James Storm – Good Pop for James Storm but the fans were hoping for Goldberg but were expecting John Morrison or new talent.

    Sting's Hall Of Fame announcement was well received in the arena. The crowd appreciated Sting's reaction. The crowd had chants of Thank You Sting.

    Gail Kim vs Brooke Tessmacher – The match up was expected because Tess is from Texas but majority of the crowd did not know she was from Texas until the post match interview. I was disappointed by the match up I would preferred a more capable knockout. Instead I was watching TNA's Kelly Kelly win the title. I would have liked to seen more TNA knockout instead make the card since TNA doesn't come to Texas often.

    Bully Ray is one of the best heel in the business. The minute Bully Ray mentioned God's country New York City the entire crowd was fired up. The crowd had many chants of Let's Go Rangers which morphed into Let's go Rangers – Yankees sucks chants! Bully was such a effective heel that any time Joseph Park had a chance to attack Bully Ray the crowd would go crazy. The crowd would have preferred Abyss vs Bully Ray.

    Christian appeared to a good pop. The crowd was aware that Christian Cage was in town. I think WWE got the better end of the talent trade. Ric Flair HOF appearance vs Christian Cage announcing the number 1 TNA moment voted online.

    Aj Styles/Kurt Angle vs Daniels/ Kazarian was the match of the night. The crowd was really hot with the wrestlers having great chemistry in the ring. I thought it was a 4 and 1/2 star match. That match I would love to see a two out three falls match or an iron man tag team match. The best chant during the match was this is wrestling.

    Bobby Roode vs Sting – Sting got the Biggest pop of the night – The crowd chanted you still got it at Sting through out the match. I didn't like the Bobby Roode bailing out so often at the beginning the match. The crowd didn't like the finish because of the stupidity of it. Roode had a six pack of beer bottles. So when Sting catches the bottle and hands it to the refree it was stupid to not know a second bottle would be used. The crowd stayed to watch Sting destroy Roode after the match.

    Great show to watch live! You can't beat their prices and action! If you can go it is definitely worth it!
