In case you haven’t heard, Sting is the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion after returning on last night’s iMPACT and defeating Jeff Hardy. Hardy will get his rematch at the Victory Road pay-per-view.
Victory Road on March 13th isn’t being pushed as a major pay-per-view as Lockdown on April 17th is what’s being focused on. Currently scheduled for Victory Road is Sting vs. Jeff Hardy in a TNA World Title match and Beer Money vs. Ink Inc. for the TNA Tag Team Titles.
TNA’s live event in Elmira, New York on February 11th drew 1,414 paying fans for $40,550. The February 25th show in Norfolk, Virginia drew 1,500 fans and the show in Richmond, Virginia drew 1,200 fans. Attendance for TNA events has been up as of late.
TNA built to last night’s iMPACT in hopes of a huge rating with the returns of Hulk Hogan and Sting, plus the debuts of MTV star Angelina Pivarnick and NFL star Bart Scott. TNA was hoping to establish iMPACT outside of Orlando as a big deal by having a major show.
