TNA steel cage heading to the UK

Written by: Mike Shaw

For the first time ever, the Lockdown steel cage is making its way to the UK and Ireland.

In January 2013, TNA Impact Wrestling is bringing the Road To Lockdown tour to Europe and fans are promised a steel cage match on every show.

Big names already announced for the five events include AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Velvet Sky, Gail Kim and Mr. Anderson. More top names will be announced in the coming months.

TNA President Dixie Carter said: “Our wonderful fans in the UK and Ireland have made us their number one rated wrestling show once again – and this tour is our way of saying thank you.

“This is the first time that the Lockdown steel cage has ever left US soil. Those matches will really be something special.

“Taping at Wembley this January was a high point in the 10 year history of this company, so coming back in 2013 is something everyone is looking forward to.”

In other TNA news, it has been announced that Impact Wrestling will be shown live in the US every Thursday night throughout the summer of 2012. Starting on May 31, Impact will move an hour earlier on Spike TV in the States and will be screened live.

The move to a live broadcast will not affect UK viewers as Impact will still be shown at 10pm on Sunday nights on Challenge TV.

Road to Lockdown tour dates:

Monday, January 21 – Dublin National Stadium

Wednesday, January 23 – Glasgow Braehead Arena

Thursday, January 24 – Nottingham Capital FM Arena

Friday, January 25 – Manchester Arena

Saturday, January 26 – Wembley Arena (will be taped for TV)

Tickets for the four UK and Ireland shows can be bought from / 0844 811 0051 or / 0844 826 2826.
