So they're only using the red and blue seats highlighted. Sure it's a nice selling point on paper to have a TNA show at the Alamodome but when you're only going to use 25% of the space, what's the point? What in the world kind of deal did they make to book this venue?

25%? Looks closer to 10-15% at most.

Must be a reason why they did it. No idea what it is though.

I'm guessing WWE has a special contract with the Freeman or something and Dixie was deadset on holding the event in San Antonio? I doubt the Alamodome costs that much too book at this time in the year.

I'd imagine they got a very good deal on it, probably cheaper than hiring out an entire arena of the same size.

No other reason they would do it.

That has to be reason, or maybe the other part of arena will be used for something else?

Don't know why you'd rent out a 50,000 seat place,and use like 5000 of those seats.

Freeman Coliseum had wrestling events before(attendance ranged from 8000-10000)



Would have been better idea for TNA to have event there

If tickets sell well then they will expand it to 8,000 and I'm pretty sure dixie got a decent deal out of this, she's very conservative when it comes going on the road.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.
