Remembering TNA Slammiversary 2009 ahead of IMPACT Slammiversary

Last updated

Welcome to The Wrest Is History! In this column, we look at back a significant event from this day in Pro Wrestling history. June 21 is the anniversary of the TNA Slammiversary 2009 event that took place in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

The card featured two of TNA’s own King of The Mountain matches. If you’ve never seen this before, it is wild, ridiculous, convoluted and odd.

King of The Mountain is essentially a ‘reverse’ ladder match, where combatants have to take the title and put it BACK at the top of a ladder on a hook. It was a strange concept then and still is looking back.

Perhaps even stranger is the names competing for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of the show. This was the first time that a TNA Champion was crowned, with the NWA Title moving away from TNA programming.

In a card that is only 11 years old we saw Mick Foley, Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle, AJ Styles and Jeff Jarret; like I said, wild.

You can check out the Tag Team Title match between Team 3D/The Dudleys vs Beer Money at the bottom of this article.
