    Typical TNA

    You know, TNA is doing so well. Now they've gotten rid of Vince Russo the TV show is much more coherent and you'd think the people working backstage are somewhat knowledgeable of what they should do with the show and the general direction of their company.
    But, once in a while they just have to let you know, that despite their great improvements in the last year(and they have improved greatly) they must let you know that this wrestling promotion is still TNA.
    Even though they removed the crap from the creative side of the company, the corporate side still has the same kind of stupid people working for them. Particularly the owner of the company, Dixie Carter.

    TNA announced they are going to run the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas for Lockdown.
    A stadium with a maximum capacity of 70.000. Despite drawing 4000+ at best for BFG last year.
    I don't think lowering the ticket prices, like WWE did back in the 90s is going to work.
    Just imagine how that will look on PPV.

    The newest speciality venue in the world famous Alamodome, the Illusions Theatre offers unparalleled versatility and can configure from 3,785-11,000 seats.

    To quote the Vinny Mac theme, 'no chance in hell' they are going to perform in a 70,000 capacity arena! good that they're out of the Impact Zone again for a ppv tho.

    The Alamodome can be set up in many different ways to accommodate this PPV. Just because a stadium has a "max capacity" of 70k doesn't mean they will have 70k seat open to the public. With the size of the venue, they will most likely set it up for a max of 4-7k fans in the Illusions Theater and if the event sells out, they have the ability to redesign the layout for more or less people. This also allows for them to have pyros at their PPV, which always seems weird to see when they don't have them (i.e. BFG, and Slammiversary X). I do not think that this is a "bad move" for TNA since they are coming back to a state in which they had a great reception last time they visited. It also puts them closer to Houston, which also has a bigger market of fans who would be willing to make the 2 hour trip for the PPV. It will all come down to ticket pricing for the event (I am planning on buying front row tickets, regardless of price this year. 4th row was great for SlammiX, but why not get by the guard rail this time?) as to how many buys they will get...

    I fail to see why you view this as a "negative" thing right off the bat. Just like when TNA was in the UK, they booked Wembley without prior knowledge as to how many fans would show up. Once they had an idea from ticket sales, they were able to redesign the stadium layout to fit the need for the amount of people they had. If SlammiX was a test for a PPV market of the Texas fan base, it is only reasonable for them to find a bigger venue to try and get that "rowdy Texas crowd" on a bit of a bigger scale.

    So how does that go with renting the place? Do they have to pay full price for the stadium or do you think they can suffice with just the rent for that Theater?
    It would be pretty stupid to pay the rent of a 70k stadium and just use 11k at most for possible spectators.

    Its definitely going to be the theatre, of course booking a 70,000 capacity arena would be a disaster for tna right now, would be a disaster business wise. Just like my favourite band, Yes, would maybe book the theatre and fill most the seats but wouldn't book the arena for the same reasons as tna.

    haha admittedly that doesn't look quite right for a rasslin show, but i think its more likely than the 'enormodome'.

    I am not sure Auto... But I found this bit of info for you

    So you can contact them and ask if you want, but I don't work for them so I couldn't provide you those kind of details...

    And yes, that is the Illusions Theater (good pic) which can be used in many different ways to accomodate many different styles of events... Similar to how the Alamadome uses Lila Cockrell Theatre in multiple style setups.

    Yeah... It doesn't really look like a wrestling venue. Maybe they can shape it that way?
    Or just tape from behind towards the audience? That will make your audience look freaking huge.
