I’m hearing a "Creative Team" rumor that Samoa Joe will win the King Of The Mountain Main Event match at tonight’s TNA Slammiversary PPV, and that a heel turn may be in the works for him.
Both Samoa Joe and AJ Styles go into the match with recent injuries, but both have been off events for several weeks so I am expecting their usual strong performances.
This is AJ Styles’ 4th KING OF THE MOUNTAIN MATCH, the most of anyone in TNA history, yet he has never been booked to win the match
Jeff Jarrett has been in two previous KING OF THE MOUNTAIN MATCHES, winning both.
Both Samoa Joe & Kurt Angle have appeared in one previous KING OF THE MOUNTAIN match each
This is Mick Foley’s 1st KING OF THE MOUNTAIN Match
