UFC and WWE/TNA are not the same bird. But it would be foolish to run Lockdown in that area 2 weeks after WWE and a shit load of Indy feds all run shows (TNA is running a live event or two during that time frame) as well as UFC who is running a show in NJ at the end of April (Jones vs Sonnen).

That equates to a lot of money being spent in the area during that time and TNA does not want to be the odd man out in competing with all the others and not getting a good paying crowd. It's called a smart business decision. Considering the ratings and live event/PPV numbers they draw when outside of Orlando, there is little sense in running a show that close to all the others in the same region.

The only reason the UFC are not worried about running the April show in Jersey is because it's a show that will attract fans from all over the area (NY, PA, CT etc) and has a main event that will sell (likely in the 500-800k PPV buy range).

UFC does not always sell out in Jersey. That's BS. UFC on FOX 3 last year did 10k, in the IZOD which could hold nearly 20k.

Philadelphia is a 2 hour drive, what stopped you from going to BFG in Philly ? I'd bet there is reasons why they have yet to run NYC for a PPV...and just because Hogan and Dixie don't respond doesn't mean they don't care. Maybe NYC is in discussion for another PPV in 2013, or not, time will tell on that. But I would bet that it has been discussed on multiple occasions. Maybe you should have went to the last NYC house show this summer, as Dixie was there and as always interacted with the fans...you could have asked her in person and gotten a straight answer.

You shit on TNA for not running NYC and potentially going to Texas 2x in a calendar year, yet it's perfectly fine for ROH to run 3 IPPV's in NYC this year ? That's a biased opinion don't cha think ? There are plenty of regions that don't get PPV's from WWE/TNA/ROH and UFC, should fans in those regions quit on those companies and wish death upon them ?
