King of the Mountain match returning at Slammiversary

After being shelved for six long years, the King of the Mountain match will return to TNA at Slammiversary, TNA’s first pay-per-view event of the year 2015.

The King of the Mountain match consists of 5 individuals who begin ineligible to win. In order to become eligible one must score a submission or pinfall where falls count anywhere. Once eligible, the competitor must retrieve the belt from the official while the person who was pinned or submitted must spend 2 minutes in the “penalty box” cage. Multiple competitors can be locked in the penalty box and once the belt is in play any other wrestler who is eligible may steal the belt, if at any point the belt is dropped it goes back to the official. An eligible competitor hangs the belt on a hook suspended 15 feet above the ring via a ladder to win the match.

The last time the King of the Mountain match was featured during Slammiversary was in 2009. Jeff Jarrett won the first KOTM match back in 2004 and after that and won it again in 2006. Other winners include Raven, Kaz, Samoa Joe, Suicide, and twice Kurt Angle.
