By Bill Banks

Tonight, TNA Wrestling returns to SpikeTV at 9pm for two hours of Total Nonstop Action as we head towards the Sunday, June 8 "Slammiversary" Pay-Per-View spectacular!

The below is a preview of what will take place on the broadcast:

- For the first time ever in "iMPACT!" history, there will be a special X Division "King Of The Mountain" match with the winner receiving a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on the next "iMPACT!" after Slammiversary! Thursday's bout will be held under the same rules as the King Of The Mountain set to main event Slammiversary and will feature Chris Sabin vs. Curry Man vs. Kaz vs. Jimmy Rave vs. Johnny Devine. Whoever is able to climb the ladder and hang the red X will not only win the X Division King Of The Mountain bout but will earn a shot at the World Title!

- In addition, the broadcast will feature a look at four of the King Of The Mountain challengers as it will be Christian Cage and Rhino taking on Booker T and Robert Roode in tag team action! Rhino and Cage recently put aside their differences to form a cohesive unit - but the question is, after their wars, can Booker and Roode do the same?

- Former friends and TNA World Tag Team Champions will square off as it will be "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles taking on Tomko in singles action! Will AJ finally have his opportunity to exact revenge on Tomko for the beating he suffered? Or, will Tomko continue his path of domination in TNA by annihilating his former tag team partner? Also, will Kurt Angle take this opportunity to attempt to brutalize AJ again? Tune in and find out!

- Speaking of The Angles, has learned there will be a special Point/Counterpoint interview with Kurt and Karen Angle concerning their ongoing problems. Will Kurt and Karen finally be able to work out their issues? Will we get to the bottom of Kurt's suspicions that Karen is seeing AJ Styles? Or, will their relationship spiral out of control even further?

- There will also be a Knockout Street Fight as one-half of the Beautiful People - Velvet Sky - will take on ODB! The question is, will Angelina Love or Roxxi get involved in the bout? How will Velvet Sky fare in a Street Fight, which obviously puts the odds in favor of ODB? Tune in and watch it!

- Plus, there will be a special TNA Bachelor Party for "Black Machismo" Jay Lethal before he gets married to SoCal Val at the Slammiversary Pay-Per-View event!

All this and much more this Thursday night at 9pm on SpikeTV, including more matches announced for the June 8 Slammiversary event!
