TNA WRESTLING MAKES HISTORY AT SLAMMIVERSARY X
PRESIDENT DIXIE CARTER ANNOUNCES "THE ICON" STING AS THE FIRST TNA WRESTLING HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE IN FRONT OF LARGEST CROWD IN US HISTORY
TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter emotionally announced that "The Icon" Sting will be the first wrestler to be inducted into the recently announced TNA Wrestling Hall of Fame in front of the company's largest crowd in the US to attend a live event. Slammiversary X is the ten year anniversary pay-per-view event for TNA Wrestling that was held at the College Park Center, in Arlington, Texas. The "TNA Hall of Fame" induction celebration will take place in October at Bound For Glory.
"The 10 year milestone is an incredible achievement for TNA," stated TNA President Dixie Carter. "In honor of that, we felt it was time to begin recognizing the contributions of those who have made the greatest impact on our success. And now I am thrilled to announce that 'The Icon' Sting will be our first-ever inductee into the hall.
"Sting came to TNA when we needed a major superstar to help establish the company. It made a statement when he signed with us, and he helped pave the way for other major names to join the roster. Eight years later he continues to reinvent himself, and I think he is doing his best work-to-date," Carter continued.
