Never heard this term. But JaredStyles's definition makes sense.

Quote:
b (as modifier)
a lock gate
4 the jamming, fastening, or locking together of parts
5 (Brit) the extent to which a vehicle's front wheels will turn to the right or left
this car has a good lock
6 a mechanism that detonates the charge of a gun
7 ♦ lock, stock, and barrel completely; entirely
8 any wrestling hold in which a wrestler seizes a part of his opponent's body and twists it or otherwise exerts pressure upon it
Read number 8

I believe it's related to the best usage of the holds in wrestling, but I'm not sure. Hope it helped anyway.

Turnstile gates.

Turnstiles are generally used for paying punters.

So, they just use the term "gates" to show the numbers.

It means attendance 'at the gate' of an event. So live events, house shows and PPV's the attendance.

The ranking means who drew the most attendance at events they headlined.
