Match Rating: **** 1/4
Overall: The PPV was OK but nothing special. The event had a few matches that reached *** and a main event that reached over ****. The crowd was hot and it shows you that if TNA has events outside the Impact Zone then the crowd support can be better. The main event was great and at times it looked like anyone could win. The opening tag match and the tag match with James Storm were both good reaching three stars. Tomko vs. Abyss was good reaching three stars and Sting vs. Daniels was enjoyable also. Slammiversary 2007 earns a 6/10. The only problem with the event was ten matches it too much for the card, WrestleMania is four hours every year and they rarely have ten matches on the card.
