Highs, lows and crunchy middles from TNA’s Slammiversary XIII

June 28th, 2015. The thirteenth anniversary of Total Non-stop Action Wrestling’s biggest Pay-Per-View spectacular was celebrated. The show boasted some memorable moments and enthralling in-ring action. It also, however, suffered from technical difficulties, awkward billing, and a severe lack of build-up.

Slammiversary-2015

With the dirt sheets a-litter with news that five top stars of TNA’s roster are jumping ship and rumours that the company is on the verge of closing its doors, an oddly wistful shadow was cast over Sunday night’s proceedings.

Before his match with James Storm, Magnus cut a promo which, although a bit muddled, dripped with the emotion of a sentimental farewell as much as his quivering lip and tear-filled eyes:

“It’s the thirteenth anniversary of the little company with big, big dreams. It’s Slammiversary in good, old Orlando, Florida. The stars are out and ready to shine, and tonight the smart money is that two of TNA’s biggest and brightest stars shine bright on Pay-Per-View for the last time. People can say what they want about this company, and I know you do. But dammit, for six years this company has been my home, it’s given me some great memories, some great times, and I grew up in this company and I’m proud of it.”

It was announced the next day that Nick “Magnus” Aldis was officially signed to Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling.

What were the big take-aways from this year’s Slammiversary? What were the highs and lows and crunchy middles of the event which may wind up being TNA’s Pay-Per-View swam song? Let’s take a closer look.
