HELL YES! They've finally listened!
TNA told their VIP ticketholders at Genesis today that this will be their only live TNA PPV held at Universal Studios in Orlando in 2013.
Lockdown will be held in San Antonio, TX. The Slammiversary and Bound For Glory pay-per-views will also be held outside the Impact Zone. Locations haven't yet been announced.
Maybe they feel that getting out of their "comfort zone" will increase interest in the promotion and bring in more fans. What do you think of this?
HELL YES! They've finally listened!
Makes sense that they would have all of their PPV's on the road now as they've cut back on the number of PPV's their doing a year.

I can definitely see this as a good thing for TNA and perhaps the beginning of actual growth for the company.
I don't really see how this is "growth" when nothing has changed. They generally did the "bigger" PPVs on the road anyway.
I wish i lived in TX. Lockdown is like WM to me
Thank you Surrender!!!

once they get out of the impact zone I think they will be amazed at how the crowds react to the guys who are tweeners like Austin Aries...in the impact zone it depends on who he is fighting as to how they respond but in my mind he could get pops like Steve Austin use to get...Aries is a ligit bad ass and full of charisma...those things can be amplified in front of crowd who are not told who to chant for...
and to be honest the only way this company is gonna grow is to do things they havent tried like going to bigger arenas and having ppv's on the road...only having 3 to do now will cut down on cost of traveling and grow your product outside of orlando..having only four also gives them the advantage of building up stories better and again cuts costs (althought traveling now may actually cost about the same in the end as having 11 ppv's) eventually I think this will help them overall.

I've been saying this for years. TNA really needs to take the PPVs away from Universal Studios, even the taped ones. Impact Wrestling not so much, but PPVs hell yes.
TNA should even do a PPV in England because it will be a big draw at the gate. They could half the cost of the TV PPV price and show it on delay in the US and still (I predict make a bigger profit)
Mess with E.C.3. and you're in for; Trouble, Trouble, Trouble, Trouble, Trouble, Trouble, Trouble....

And yes Tna should do a ppv over here in the UK, granted the nearest we will get is a few tv tapings,which if i remember right from the last uk tour, alot of tna fans said how different the vibe off the uk crowd came accross on Tv (although if the US fans knew that for years we were subjected to the likes of Nagasaki,Daddy,haystacks,st.clair, old ladies with handbags and God awful town halls back in the 70's and 80's they would understand why we are hot for them!)
