TNA Slammiversary



Slammiversary is the name given to professional wrestling pay-per-view events held by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in the month of June. This is of historical significance since June 19 is the date of the first TNA event in 2002. The name was said to have been invented by TNA Superstar Shark Boy.

Slammiversary has become the home of the King of the Mountain match, a five-man reverse ladder match for TNA's World Heavyweight Championship. The match debuted at TNA's second anniversary show, a weekly pay-per-view in Nashville, Tennessee, and has since been featured at Slammiversary every year.

In what has come to be an unofficial tradition for TNA, a new authority figure has been declared at each of the Slammiversary shows that have aired. On the pre-show to Slammiversary 2005, Larry Zbyszko took the mic and announced that former Director of Authority Dusty Rhodes had buckled under the pressure and would be resigning, meaning that Zbyszko would be taking over as interim authority as per his role as a member of the NWA Championship Committee.

In 2006, a much longer developed storyline came to a climax as TNA Management finally announced its long-awaited "new face" with the debut of Jim Cornette at Slammiversary 2006.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
