From College Park Center in Arlington, Texas
Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
We open the show with a video package highlighting important moments in TNA's ten year history, and the culmination at tonight's show.
No pyro, but we get some crowd shots and the crowd does look pretty impressive. Definitely the best looking crowd TNA's had since their England shows.
Hulk Hogan's music hits, and the Hulkster makes his way out to a big pop to start off the show. Hogan postures and poses in the ring, soaking in the adulation of the crowd. It's not like we have a bunch of matches to get to or anything.
Hogan has the mic and he welcomes the crowd to Slammiversary. He says tonight is a celebration. It's ten years of TNA/Impact Wrestling. He says he hopes the crowd is bolted down because the next ten years will be twice as awesome. He tells the crowd he's been around the block a few times, and this company is shooting to the moon, and as the GM of Impact Wrestling, he loves pushing people's buttons. He's going to do it in the first match by going old school. The first match will be Samoa Joe vs. Austin Aries, but the button Hogan is going to push, is that the match will be for Aries' title. Hogan makes his way to the back to another big pop from the crowd.
