Update On The TNA Bound For Glory Attendance

Several images from last night’s TNA Bound for Glory PPV, which took place at the Viejas Arena in San Diego, California, have been posted online. The photos back up the reports from after the show, which stated that the crowd was mainly moved to opposite the hard camera, and that the show was carefully shot to not show the low attendance.

There were around 4,000 fans in the building but they were all moved to one side of the arena.

    4,000 fans in attendance is a lot more than the 1,000-1,200 numbers that have been posted previously. It's hard to know what to believe anymore.

  2. james says:

    Tna should stop booking 12000+ seat arenas. An arena half that size would work so much better in terms of atmosphere and on screen appearance.

    Seems like this site take pride in reporting this.

    so 4,000 a bad number? for tna that actually great, since they will never pull off wwe crowds as of right now. so 4,00 people should be a solid crowd. i dont see how this could be look at as a bad thing. but i did felt they try to make a low light settleing maybe to hide the seating in some areas

      its bad because they were dumb enough to book a 8k seat arena…when a arena is half full for a PPV it looks really bad..sure, 4000 is a good number for TNA, but perception is the key and when a arena looks half full it looks really bad..

      • TheFurnitureom says:

        Perception is key, and that's why it filmed so you couldn't tell.

        I'm sure TNA have their reasons for booking big arena's or have you not thought about that? Could be of a 1000 reasons, location, transport, discount, the ability to up sell if they get more demand etc.

        You're so anti TNA BigMike, do you give TNA credit for anything?

        Why dont you pass Dixie your CV?

    these posts are garbage. Tna did the same thing at lockdown. the hard camera side was curtained off because of the configuration of the alamodome. bound for glory had 3,000 to 4,000 in attendance. all on the side where the “fan” took his pictures from. the hard camera side wasn’t for sale! those couple people there are media and VIP’s. the wrestling media really has it in for Tna. I mean this kinda of biased ” reporting ” is disgusting.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      just so you're away. In a full arena the hard camera side is still full. They only block out the area needed for the camera, they sell the the pics still are smaller arenas would be better.

      • TheFurnitureom says:

        What happens if the small arena sells out and their is demand for more tickets?

        Or are you okay with somebody sitting on your lap?

  6. Luchador says:

    It was just really bad marketing for BOF making matches almost at the last minute made it worse


    This site sucks and I won’t be back. For a TNA website it seems like they are always wanting to post all the negative. They post more negative than positive.

  8. Darkelzallon says:

    TNA's dominating location would be in the UK. Anyway, I love Bound For Glory. I knew it must be an awesome ppv and boy, I am right about it.

  9. TheBringer92 says:

    is it bad to see empty seats? or turn people away? Think they should book smaller venues. Theyll probs go back to the Impact zone, and have the same boring crowd in week in week out and the only one whos gets a big pop is Jeff Hardy

  10. DirkB says:

    I don't like the hard camera, just compare the last shows from the IZ to the ones from 2005-2010, it looks half empty in comparison.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      ok? the hard camera in essential to a wrestling show. It doesn't take up nearly as much space as everyone seems to think it does. People want you to believe that it takes up a whole side and kill attendance, but it doesn't, each camera takes up 5-10 seats..max…and even WWE doesn't use more than 2, so that's 20 seats

  11. godoftna says:

    TNA seems to have a lot of success touring in the north east, so maybe they should stick to that area for touring and ppvs. If they do in fact return to the Impact Zone, they should only do so as a part time thing while also doing multiple shows in their "warm" regions. Places where they know they have a strong fan base and draw solid crowds. Until they are able to grow more and get more exposure, this may be the best way for the company to survive.

    they did a lousy job of hiding the empty seats…..i saw a number of them….. and would rather see that then the crowd moved to hide it
