Here's a place to check results and comment along with TNA's Slammiversary pay-per-view (PPV) - happening tonight, Sunday, June 12, 2016 from Orlando.
Bell-time is 8PM, and we'll update results as they come in below. The $34.99 PPV event is available on most major cable and satellite providers or on Fite.tv.
There are a whopping nine matches booked for the show (although the Gail Kim/Maria Kanellis bout is in question due to Maria's broken hand). At the top of the card are three highly anticipated match-ups, including the pay-off of a lengthy feud between Kanellis' husband Mike Bennett and former TNA World champ Ethan Carter III and a battle for that very title between the man who currently holds it (and EC3's EVOLVE running buddy) Drew Galloway and part-time Bellator mixed martial artist, Lashley.
And, of course, there's also "Broken" Matt Hardy vs. Jeff "Brother Nero" Hardy in Full Metal Mayhem.
Feel free to use this space to discuss the show with the best pro wrestling community on the internet - before, during and after the show. We'll update with match results and a quick rundown of other major happenings.

X Division Title Match
The opening match is the X Division, which is common form for TNA PPVs. Prior to the match, it's announced that Gregory Shane Helms is banned from ringside for the night.
For the most part, Everett and Lee worked together in the match asides from the time that Everett tried for a pin in front of Lee that caused some shoving between both men. They didn't have time to argue though because there were two other men gunning from them. Most of the match was typical X Division back and forth. It ended with just Lee and Edwards in the ring and after trading some moves, Edwards won with a roll up on Lee.
Eddie Edwards wins the X Division Title
The Tribunal (w/Al Snow) vs. Grado and Mahabali Shera
This is a standard tag match which involved Al Snow blowing a whistle most of the match. The heels worked the double team and the good guys fought back. In the end of the match, an Al Snow distract prevented the Tribunal from losing and allowed them to take control. This lead to a double team finish by the Tribunal for the win.
The Tribunal def. Shera & Grado
Backstage, James Storm meets Braxton Sutter backstage and they both compliment each other a bunch. They walk off together when James Storm says he has something to talk to him about.
Gail comes down for the fight but Maria and Allie come out to tell Gail that Maria can't wrestle due to her hand. Billy Corgan comes out to tell Gail that the broken hand is legit. He says that the minute Maria is cleared, Gail will get her match.
Then Billy Corgan adds Gail Kim to the Knockouts title match.
Gail Kim vs. Sienna vs. Jade (c) for the Knockouts Championship
Much of the match, Sienna controlled both Gail and Jade. The faces power back and Gail ends up hitting Eat Defeat on Sienna but when she went for the pin, Allie pulled her out.
While outside, Gail goes after Maria, who kicks her knee putting her down. Back in the ring, with the ref busy with the action outside, Marti Bell and runs in and hits Jade with what looked to be a pipe of sorts. Sienna took that opportunity to pin the champ for the 1-2-3.
Sienna def. Gail Kim, Jade to win the KOs title
James Storm comes down and talks about how he's been here from the start. He says he's going to fight Braxton Sutter, giving him a chance like he's given so many others in his past.
James Storm vs. Braxton Sutter
Throughout the match, Sutter kept up with Storm, never letting the veteran get full advantage. However, in the end Storm was able to hit a lung blower and the Last Call Superkick for the win.

Both men share a beer at the end of the match.
Bram vs. Eli Drake (c) for the King of the Mountain championship
Eli Drake takes a lot of breaks outside the ring to avoid Bram. In fact, he eventually just takes his title and goes to leave. Bram chases him up the ramp, lays him out with a lariat, and he beats up Drake all around the ring. Bram pulls the padding up and goes for his DDT on the concrete but Eli delivers a back body drop instead. Bram barely avoids count out.
Bram finally fights his way back inside the ring and eventually does hit his Brighter Side of Suffering DDT. However, Drake rolls outside to avoid getting pinned. Bram drags Drake back in, but Eli Drake is able to hit his Blunt Force Trauma for the win to retain.

EC3 vs. "The Miracle" Mike Bennett
EC3 controls the match early until Bennett sidesteps Carter, who hits the ring post head first. Bennett takes the advantage, and tries to win by count out twice (once after hitting a hangman DDT off the guard rail.)
EC3 makes it back to the ring and both men take it to each other in the ring, hitting big moves for near falls. EC3 finally hits the One Percenter.... but Bennett kicks out! Carter follows up to a TK3 on the ring apron, which leaves both guys down. EC3 goes for a move from the top rope but Bennett hits a cutter for a near fall!
EC3 gets a Cobra Clutch, but Bennett holds the ref and Bennett Mule Kicks him but that only leads to another near fall. EC3 finally hits another One Percenter, but Maria slides a chair in the ring, which distracts the ref. He eventually counts the pin, but it gave enough time for Bennett to kick out.
While the ref is dealing with Maria outside, he hits the Miracle in Progress on the chair... but Carter kicks out of that too! EC3 hits a TK3 and a One Percenter to finally pick up the 1-2-3.
EC3 def. Bennett
Jeff Hardy vs. Broken Matt Hardy in a Full Metal Mayhem match (falls will count anywhere)
Matt Has new piano music that fits his Broken Persona perfectly. And Reby with Maxel introduces him and MAXEL IS WEARING A BROKEN MATT HARDY OUTFIT
The men fight around the ring with the weapons at hand, not even bothering entering the ring. The men take turns kicking the crap out of each other with ladders and trash cans, with Matt having the advantage and then Jeff.
The first man to go through the table is Matt, when Jeff jumps over the top rope and lands on Matt outside of the ring. Only gets a near fall. Jeff then sets up a ladder that's large enough to set up from one end of the ring to the other, puts Matt on it, and then splashes through it, but again only for a near fall.
Matt takes advantage, hits a nasty Side Effect on the apron, and then sets up a frickin' synthesizer against the ring and a guard rail and powerbombs Jeff through the keyboard!
Jeff gets the advantage and hits a bunch of standard moves, including a regular Swanton, which Matt kicks out of. He then hits a Twist of Fate through one table on his brother and then puts him on another one that was next to it, and then hits a Swanton from the top rope through Matt who is on the floor to finally get the win.
Jeff Hardy def. Matt Hardy
BroMans vs. Decay (c) for the Tag Team Titles
Robbie is in trouble early until Jessie is tagged in, who takes both members of the Decay out and then Robbie hits a splash on the champs outside. Jessie is left in the ring when Rosemary comes in behind him and he ends up pressing her out of the ring onto Decay.
Steve trips up Jessie and Godderz becomes the face in peril for awhile until he's able to tag Robbie in. Things break down when Rosemary accidentally sprays the mist in the eyes of Abyss. Blinded, he chokeslams Steve. Steve gets placed in the Adonis Crab but Abyss pulls the ref out so he can't see him tap.
After a few more shenanigans, the Decay win when Abyss hits a Black Hole Slam on Jessie and then powerbombs Crazzy Steve on top of him.
The Decay def. the BroMans
Lashley vs. Drew Galloway (c) for the TNA Title
Drew Galloway hits a Claymore kick immediately to start the match, but the match is really a back and forth affair. Drew eventually locks in his Iron Maiden twice but Lashley fought out without much damage. The Destroyer eventually hits a spear, which reels Drew allowing Bobby to control the champ.
The men spend the latter half of the match trading big hits and submissions, but no one is counted out for a 10 count nor taps. Drew Galloway eventually sets up a table and sets Lashley up on the outside of the ring. Then he goes back into the ring and jumps the rope to put Lashley through it, but Lashley moves and Drew crashes through.
Lashley just beats the count and he his bloodied and pissed! He gets in the ring but Lashley locks in a cross face. Drew fights out and hits a Tombstone and both men are down. Drew is up first and goes for another Claymore but Lashley avoids and locks in a front choke that knocks Galloway out.
Lashley def. Galloway to win the title
That's the show, folks.
