TNA Running Three New York City Shows – Details


TNA is set to run three shows at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City this summer. A source says that the company is paying a total of $300,000 to the venue in rent and production cost for the shows, which will take place in June, July, and August.

The source noted that this is a possible move in order to impress Spike TV, which is headquartered in New York and has yet to come to a new agreement with the company. It isn’t known whether Spike is paying any of the bill, though it is believed that it was TNA management that negotiated the deal.

    From the sound of it the events won't be on tv. I love the Hammerstein ballroom it's just a unique location to watch a wrestling event on tv.

      There dates equals six weeks outta the impact zone…good for the ratings

        TNA needs to start looking at there T.V. schedule just like this. You got 52 shows in a year and whenever TNA is on the road taping they tape for two weeks in one night. This is why they need to go to the U.K. twice a year. TNA should only be in the Impact Zone 20 times out of the year in my opinion.

    This is a step in the right direction but TNA these days probably won't even fill the whole Hammerstein Ballrooom. Hammerstein has great E.C.W. and even R.O.H. history but idk if I see TNA putting on a good show. Also, TNA is doing this to impress Spike? Please! There is nothing TNA could do in there best days to persuade Viacom to sign them instead of WWE so if this is there intentions they are stupid. If these shows are not T.V. tapings I don't see many people attending and if it is three tv tapings TNA better put on the best show they possibly can.

      Not sure what's going on here, TBH. Viacom would certainly take WWE over TNA, that's for sure. But think about if for a moment:

      1) A good showing at Hammerstein could get TNA more money from Spike to improve production and be on the road more (or at least get a better sound stage).

      2) If Spike landed WWE (which is incredibly unlikely), it would make TNA more valuable to other suitors if the other suitors can see what TNA is capable of doing with the right deal.

      So there are a couple of reasons this could be a good idea for TNA to do. Essentially, it's the same play they made when they went on the road full time last year. Everyone blames Hogan/Bischoff for that (and I'm not absolving them of responsibility), but the TV deal was most certainly the impetus for it.

    This is a ballsy move for TNA. Despite the success that they've had in the NYC area in the past, this could turn into a make or break move for TNA. If they are successful and put on 3 GREAT shows, then it could lead a long term thing in the area, which could be great. However, if they should fail to put on even 2 GREAT shows, then this could end up being a nail in TNA's coffin. And make no mistake, TNA absolutely HAS to put on 2-3 great shows. Not good shows, GREAT. TNA needs to get a lot of attention with the move, or it could all be over in a second. No way 800-900 people is going to cut it here.
