Countdown to TNA Slammiversary
By SLAM! Wrestling Staff





You've got to hand it to TNA on occasion -- they do build up matches well.

For example, tonight's presentation of Slammiversary. All the matches here have been well built with great storyline work on the shows over the last few weeks. Now comes the big test though -- does this work and the allure of $7 tickets sell a ton of seats in the Palace of Auburn Hills? If not, TNA management had better take a hard look at themselves.

Let's see what's on tap for tonight.


TNA CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH (King of the Mountain)

Samoa Joe vs. Kurt Angle vs. AJ Styles vs. Mick Foley vs. Jeff Jarrett

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

The obvious choice here is Jarrett, since he needs to resume his title chase of Ric Flair. Joe and Angle cancel each other out and you can expect a spectacular spot from AJ to take out Foley, allowing Jarrett to ascend to the top of the mountain once again.

Chris Sokol

I expect there to be plenty of interference in this match-up. I see Earl Hebner turning heel again, considering all the time he's spent the last few weeks on Impact with Mick Foley. I see Angle getting outside help, Samoa Joe using outside sources to gain an edge and Jeff Jarrett screwed, but through it all, I see AJ Styles capturing the TNA Heavyweight Championship.

Greg Oliver

The smart money seems to be on Styles, but I'm not ready to give up on Foley as the champion quite yet. I think he retains here, but builds towards a loss to Styles in the future in a one-on-one match. (TNA still does those on occasion for the belt, don't they?)


 
X-DIVISION TITLE MATCH (King of the Mountain)

Jay Lethal vs. Consequences Creed vs. Alex Shelley vs. Chris Sabin vs. Jay Lethal
 

WHAT YOU THINK
Who will win the King of the Mountain match for the X Division title at Slammiversary on Sunday?
Suicide (c) - 59%
Alex Shelly - 12%
Chris Sabin - 12%
Jay Lethal - 9%
Consequences Creed - 8%

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

Could it be anymore obvious that Suicide wins here?

Chris Sokol

Despite being in the Motor City Machine Guns hometown, I see Suicide walking away with the title. Lethal Consequences will most likely get knocked from the match at some point, leaving the Guns to double team Suicide until their egos get involved and cost them the match. A post match, punch-out from Curtis Granderson probably isn't out of the question either.

Greg Oliver

Suicide is on a roll, and everyone else has to lay down for him in this one.


GRUDGE MATCH (Spot in the Main Event Mafia)

Sting vs. Matt Morgan

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

This one intrigues me. Part of me says we see Morgan get the spot, but I could just as easily see Sting win and, after the match, telling Morgan he has earned his spot.

Chris Sokol

With Booker T, Scott Steiner and Kevin Nash not even advertised, I expect to see interference in this match. Matt Morgan will pick up the big win here, as Booker, Steiner and Nash get revenge on Sting for letting Samoa Joe take them out. Morgan becomes the new face of the Mafia.

Greg Oliver

Sting is apparently heading for retirement (again), so Morgan needs the boost. But it's too early in their building feud. Sting wins, but Morgan earns respect.


  TNA WORLD TAG TEAM MATCH

Team 3D vs. Beer Money
 

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

If Beer Money were to get the belts back, this would be the night. I like their chances.

Chris Sokol

Team 3D get the victory here and finally settle the score with Beer Money Inc, leaving them to feud with the British Invasion.

Greg Oliver

Wow. These teams again. Beer Money win.


 

TNA KNOCKOUTS TITLE MATCH

Angelina Love vs. Tara



SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

It would seem kind of amateurish for TNA to put the belt on a departed WWE Diva so quickly. Therefore, as per TNA logic, Tara wins.

Chris Sokol

Awesome Kong gets involved here, allowing Angelina Love to escape with her title.

Greg Oliver

It's a given that there will be some outside interference, and it'll likely backfire on Love, allowing Tara to win the title.


 

INTERGENDER MATCH (Monster's Ball)

Raven/Daffney vs. Abyss/Taylor Wilde

 

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

The tease of brutality against Lauren has happened for too long for her just to get a bruise on her arm. Either she or Taylor blades here. I'll take Raven and Daffney here.

Chris Sokol

Raven and Daffney get the win by defeating Taylor Wilde, leaving Abyss to chase after them some more.

Greg Oliver

Having watched Wilde on the Toronto indy scene all those years ago, I can honestly say I'd never envisioned her in this type of match. Yikes. Raven and Daffney win.


 

GRUDGE MATCH (Second Chance)

(Christopher) Daniels vs. Shane Douglas

 

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

No question here. Daniels beat Douglas.

Chris Sokol

Douglas breaks out the steel chain and gets his second chance.

Greg Oliver

What's the point of bringing Douglas in only to have him disappear real quick? I think he wins here.
