Glad to see Lockdown ticket sales is doing good so far..
Russo has a point about the lack of giants/Big men.
Warrior became a star, and so were Batista,Goldberg,Andre,Hogan,Undertaker,Cena,HHH,Khali,etc.
From the TNA source over at the WO forums:
Lockdown ticket sales have been very good so far. At the current sales rate of the tickets there is talk of possibly breaking their US attendance record.
Right now the top matches for Lockdown look to be Fortune vs Immortal in the Lethal Lockdown match, Jarrett vs Angle and a World Title match which has yet to be decided on. Prior to Sting winning the title I was told it would be Hardy vs Anderson vs RVD but that is obviously out the window at this point.
As of now Slammiversary is scheduled to take place in Orlando but buildings are being scouted just in case they decide to take it on the road. They were close to booking a venue in Texas for the event but things didn't work out.
As I reported before, there has been talk of holding Bound for Glory in the UK this year but as of late that talk has died down a bit. The Hammerstein Ballroom has been talked about for the event in the past several weeks.
Vince Russo is looking to bring in someone that is legit at least 6'9 or so. He says one thing holding the company back is the lack of true giants and claims that is one thing that has always helped WWE draw well.
Chase Stevens was backstage at the shows in NC trying to get work but TNA has no interest in bringing him back. David Young was also backstage visiting friends.
