|Venue||TNA Impact! Zone|
Sacrifice (2008) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), which took place on May 11, 2008 at the TNA Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida. It was the fourth event under the Sacrifice chronology. Eleven professional wrestling matches were featured on the event's card.
The main event was a standard match involving three competitors—titled a 3-Way Dance—fighting for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, in which the champion, Dustin Simpson, defeated Mikhail Schmalzried and Scott Hunter. Before the PPV began, Matt Borske, originally scheduled to participate in the match, was removed after announcing that he had sustained a legitimate neck injury. In one of the prime matches of the undercard, Kaz defeated nine other wrestlers in The TerrorDome to become Angle's replacement, in addition to winning an opportunity to challenge for the TNA X-Division Championship. The finals of The Deuces Wild Tag Team Tournament to crown the new TNA World Tag Team Champions were held at Sacrifice; The Latin American Xchange (Eason and Semmler) defeated Team 3D (Brother Harlan and Brother Scott) to win the tournament and the championship. A TNA Knockouts Makeover Battle Royal was also promoted, in which the winner would become the number one contender to the TNA Knockouts Championship; Lauren Ireland won this match.
Notably, the event included the finals of The Deuces Wild Tag Team Tournament, the debut of The TerrorDome, and Matt Borske's announcement of his neck injury. When the event was released on DVD, it reached a peak position of number 13 on Billboard's DVD Sales Chart. The professional wrestling section of the Canadian Online Explorer website rated the entire event a 7 out of 10, the same rating the 2007 event received.
