Sacrifice (2011) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion, which took place on May 15, 2011 at the TNA Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida. It was the seventh Sacrifice event.
Sacrifice featured nine professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.
The primary storyline which was featured at Sacrifice was between defending champion Sting and Rob Van Dam for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. At Lockdown Sting defeated both RVD and Mr. Anderson in a Three Way Steel Cage match to retain his championship after pinned Anderson, also during the match RVD refused to hit Sting with steel pipe when Hulk Hogan give it to him. On the following edition of Impact April 21, Sting chooses RVD to be his opponent at Sacrifice due to his good actions at Lockdown.
