    The Alamodome??

    That's a huge venue. It'll look weird on TV having a tiny portion of it being used for the event.

      Yeah. It is a dangerous gamble. That is by far the biggest arena they have tried to run. It Kind of goes against all logic. You don't travel much for ppv because it doesn't sell all that well, nor Impact for the same reason. You go from having a pretty decent but uninspiring gate of around 4,000 for your last traveling show and then jump to a place that holds 65,000 thousand people? They better just about double or their biggest gate ever or it will have to show really bad camera angles. Like pretty much hard camera and very little panning.

      • Sturk says:

        obviously they already have a plan in place. Thats a BUSINESS!! They don't just say hey lets go to a BIG ASS venue just for the hell of it lol……

    Am I the only who seems to notice that the date for Lockdown is MARCH 10th? Victory Road is the March PPV. Lockdown is ALWAYS in April. I recall earlier this year, before summer started, Dixie said she intrested in the idea of doing less PPV's a year in 2013. This could possibly be a sign that TNA has indeed dropped a PPV, and possibly other PPV's and we don't know yet.

    This place does hold 65,000 people, and tna didn't even get that many people for bfg, which is tna's version of wwe wrestlemania. If they couldn't hold that many for bfg, I wonder how many people will tna get in that big of an arena for lockdown
