TNA Brings Lockdown PPV To Nashville, TN 4/15

Source: Press Release

(Writer’s note, I reluctantly(sarcasm) post the following press release a mere week after the dirt sheets said that the UK Impact tapings would be the last road tapinfs of the year. According to the sheets TNA loses so much money taping outside of Orlando, Dixie’s mom won’t allow it, without Spike’s funding. I’m 100% positive Spike isn’t footing the bill for a PPV not on their network, so that story is proved wrong in less than 7 days. If you read that story on a site you might want to consider whether that’s a good place to get real news and support with your time.)

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (January 23, 2012) –Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling has announced Nashville will be home for “Lockdown 2012″ presented by Direct Auto Insurance. The annual live, all steel cage pay-per-view extravaganza is scheduled for Sunday night, April 15, at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. This will be TNA Wrestling’s first televised event from Nashville since 2007.
