TNA: Location of Slammiversary PPV in June revealed


TNA Wrestling is proud to announce that its worldwide Pay-Per-View spectacular “Slammiversary 2008” will be held live in the Memphis area at the DeSoto County Civic Center in Southaven, Mississippi at 7 p.m., Sunday, June 8, airing exclusively on Pay-Per-View.

TNA President Dixie Carter made the “Slammiversary” announcement on the “Off The Ropes” ESPN radio show (KQPN 730 AM) in Memphis. The city of Memphis is the top-rated television market in the United States for “TNA iMPACT” on Spike TV (Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT).

“Memphis and the Mid-South know wrestling as well as anyone in the world, and we’re excited to show some of the best fans in the world that TNA has become the new king of professional wrestling action, both in the ring and with our unique fan experience,” Carter said.

“Slammiversary” will celebrate TNA’s sixth anniversary, a feat industry insiders thought impossible when the company debuted in Nashville in 2002. TNA, once labeled as a promotion that wouldn’t last more than a few months, will come to the Memphis to celebrate a worldwide promotion spanning over 110 countries in six years.

TNA World Heavyweight Champion Samoa Joe, Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle, Booker T, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, “The Icon” Sting, Kevin Nash, “The Instant Classic” Christian Cage, Scott Steiner, Tomko, Team 3D, Gail Kim, The Latin American Xchange, The Motor City Machineguns, Robert Roode, “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal, Awesome Kong, ODB, Curry Man, Shark Boy, Eric Young and many more will be in action in for the three-hour live event.
