So, this week on Impact Wrestling, TNA announced the location for Lockdown: the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on March 10th 2013. That place has a typical 65,000 capacity, so it looks like TNA's finally going big! :)


only 5000 show up lol

WWE officials remain high on NXT Diva Paige with the feeling that she's ready to go

Most people have been joking they wouldn't get 65k even if the tickets were free. Apparently the ticket prices are starting at $15. Pretty good starting price for a major PPV from the 2nd-biggest promotion in America.

I reckon they'll get over 10,000, but not more than 20,000.

That would look embarrassing even for 20,000 :/

True, but it is TNA we're talking about. This will be the first time they've tried putting on a show in a place of such capacity. Their highest-capacity show to date was Slammiversary this year: 5,500.

then really they should got for a 10,000 capacity arena and try to fill that and if they did move up to 20,000 etc...for a 60,000 odd arena and only 20,000 odd filled it will look embarrassingly empty

Well, according to Wikipedia, it's downsized to about 20,000 for basketball games; they simply curtain off the the upper sections. I'm guessing they're just going to go with a similar layout, and if by surprise, there's actually a bigger demand, they'll just open up other sections.

I've read another possible reason why they're suddenly going big: WWE doesn't have a PPV in March, so they're looking to capitalise on that gap.

I really do hope this works for them; if it does, it'd be great for the whole sport; it'd mean TNA's actually made it big (even if it's just for one night), and WWE may take notice and step up their game.
