Open Challenge Match
- Crimson vs. James Storm

The entrances:

Crimson makes his way out to the ring, walking cockily the whole way down.

Crimson grabs the mic and reiterates that he’s been undefeated for a long time. He says everything is bigger in Texas, he’s looking at the biggest group of losers he’s seen in his life. He came here tonight to fight, and he knows no one in the back wants to fight. He doesn’t care if it’s one of the crappy Mavericks, or the Rangers, even one of the Cowboys if he has to. He’s going to wait until someone accepts the challenge. He waits in the ring. The crowd is chanting for Goldberg. He asks the referee to begin counting. James Storm’s music hits, and it looks like the cowboy has returned.

The start:

Storm attacks right away, clotheslining Crimson over the top rope before he can even get his gear off. He blasts Storm with a kick to the chest before suplexing him back into the ring. Storm mounts Crimson and blasts him with punches. Storm beats on Crimson in the corner and hits a big chop, then another.

Mid-match notes:

Crimson is able to take Storm out with a chop from behind. He rips his ring jacket off and uses it to choke Storm. Crimson hits a couple of elbows in the corner to the side of the head before running into a big clothesline. Storm hits a running elbow, an inverted atomic drop, and a big code breaker.

The finish:

Storm hits the superkick and pins Crimson for three, ending the streak.

Winner: James Storm

Storm celebrates after the match, spraying the crowd with beer.

JB is backstage with Austin Aries. Aries says what’s next for him. In less that a years time he’s become the most dominant wrestler here. He passes tests every month. There’s only one AA level talent here. He wants to be the man here. He wants to set the bar, and he wants to be the main event, and he’ll do anything he has to, to get there.

The signing of Hulk Hogan is included as the #2 Top moment in TNA history.

Dixie Carter makes her way out to the ring to a pretty dead reaction from the crowd. It gets a bit better when she gets to the ring.

Dixie thanks the fans and says this is the largest crowd they’ve ever had in the US. Dixie thanks her parents, the Jarrett’s, and Spike TV. Dixie says they’re proud of their wrestling. She thanks every wrestler who’s ever been in the ring. She asks the roster to come out to join her. The roster make their way out to the stage.

Even the agents and Hogan make their way out as well. Dixie says she’s proud to be associated with them. She says she’s like to introduce the first inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame. We get a video package of Sting, and it looks like the Stinger will be the first man to get the nod to go into the TNA Hall of Fame.

Sting makes his way down to the ring, and he looks a bit emotional. The fans chant ‘Thank you, Sting’. Dixie says that’s the same response he gets everywhere. When TNA was a small struggling company, Sting stepped up. They couldn’t have gotten anyone more special. Every year Sting has come back, and he’s helped them be where they are today. She knows he has an important match tonight, but at Bound for Glory, they’ll have the formal induction ceremony, and she hopes everyone can tune in. Sting says he’s not prepared for this. He thanks Dixie, all the wrestlers standing on the stage, and all the fans. Sting says when he first got here he tried to entertain, and tonight, it’ll be showtime.

TNA Knockout Women’s Championship Match
- Gail Kim (c) vs. Brooke Tessmacher

The entrances:

Brooke is the first woman out to the ring, to a nice reaction from a hometown crowd. Gail Kim is out next, and she doesn’t get nearly as warm of a reaction.

The start:

The bell rings and we get a lock up. Kim takes Brooke to the mat. Brook shoves Kim. Kim rolls up Brooke for two, then hits a big dropkick. Brooke responds with an arm drag. Gail bails to the outside. Brooke tries for a baseball slide, but Gail avoids it and slams Brooke into the apron.

Mid-match notes:

Kim brings things back into the ring and slams Brooke face first into the corner. Brooke comes out of the corner with a big clothesline from the middle rope, then a big hurricanrana. Kim hangs her up on the top rope to kill her momentum before choking her with her boot, and hitting her with a couple of forearms. Kim hits a shoulderbreaker, putting Brooke down across her knee.

Kim locks in a submission. Brooke fights out, only to be sent right back down to the mat. Kim locks in a head scissors and wrenches back. Kim breaks the hold and goes for a pin, but only gets two. She blasts Brooke with a big forearm before choking her against the bottom rope. Brooke comes up with a neckbreaker out of nowhere.

Kim and Brooke trade forearms. Brooke hits a couple of clotheslines, and then a big dropkick. Brooke tries for a suplex, but something goes wrong and it doesn’t happen. Kim hits a necktie neckbreaker, and Brooke rolls to the apron. Kim hits a spear that sends Brooke falling to the floor.

The finish:

Kim heads out and sends Brooke back into the ring. Kim tries for eat defeat, but it’s blocked by Brooke. Kim tries for a suplex, but she’s rolled up by Brooke, and this time it’s for three.

Winner and NEW TNA Knockouts Champion: Brooke Tessmacher

Christy Hemme interviews Brooke, who cries and says she never expected this. She says God bless Texas, and gets a huge pop, of course.

JB is backstage, and he’s interrupted by Bully Ray. Ray asks if he knows who he is and where he’s from. He says he’s from God’s country, New York City. He says he’s got Joseph Park right where he wants him, in a wrestling ring. He says there’s no wrestling tonight, it’ll be an all-out assault. He says he’s got the contract Park signed, and basically Ray won’t be responsible because anything goes. As far as Abyss is concerned, maybe he didn’t leave him for dead, but if he shows up tonight, Ray won’t be wrong twice. We get a video package that shows the history leading up to this match, as ridiculous as it may be.

Singles Match
- Bully Ray vs. Joseph Park

The entrances:

Bully Ray is the first man to make his way out for this match. He doesn’t get a warm reception from the Texas crowd.

Joseph Park is out next, wearing an Underarmor warm-up tracksuit. Park doesn’t have any music, and he looks nervous as he heads down to the ring.

The start:

Park is slow to get into the ring, but when he does, the bell rings. Ray asks for Park to take the first shot. Park takes off his glasses, then takes a shot, but Ray ducks it. Ray talks a bit of trash, asking is Park is serious. Ray slaps Park.

Mid-match notes:

Ray continues to talk trash through the whole thing. Park avoids a splash, and slaps Ray across the face. Ray attacks and takes Park down to the mat.

Ray stomps at Park before choking him with his boot. Ray kicks at Park’s ribs. Ray heads to the outside and grabs a chair. He goes for a chair shot, but Park moves and Ray connects with the top rope, hitting himself with the chair. Parkl grabs the chair, and Ray begs off.

Ray goes for a kendo stick shot, but Park hits Ray with a low blow, and grabs the stick. Park blasts Ray with a kendo stick shot to the head, and goes for the pin, but he only gets two. Ray crawls into the corner, and Park runs into a back elbow, which sends him to the outside.

The finish:

Park rolls under the ring, and Abyss rolls out another side after a brief wait. Abyss chokeslams Ray through the table, then heads out and under the ring. Park rolls out the other side and looks over into the carnage in the ring. Park rolls into the ring and pins Ray for a three count.

Winner: Joseph Park

JB is backstage with Bobby Roode, and he asks him about his match with Sting. Roode says tonight everyone wants to celebrate, the ten years of TNA’s existence, and the Hall of Fame, but the only thing they should be celebrating is Roode, because without him there’d be no Impact Wrestling. He’s the longest reigning champion in history for a reason. He also doesn’t care about Sting’s induction. He says the only thing people will remember is when he ends Sting’s career and walks out with his title.

Hogan comes out and asks everyone to give it up for Joseph Park and Slammiversary. He says he’s got one more surprise for everyone, and he wants everyone to give it up for Christian Cage. Christian makes his way out to the ring. Tenay and Taz don’t seem to treat this like it’s a big deal at all.

Christian has a mic. He asks if people can guess the question he’s been asked the most this week. Will he be appearing at Slammiversary. He tells everyone to drink it in. Who’da thunk it, huh? Christian Cage standing in a TNA ring. He looks around says the last time he was here the ring had a few more corners. He says even though the ring might change, the venues and faces might change, the fans don’t change. The fans have allowed TNA to be in existence for ten years and beyond. He tells everyone to give themselves a round of applause.

    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!
