FANS IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - SEE TNA WRESTLING ON NOV. 28-30

Fans in the United Arab Emirates: See TNA Wrestling Live on Nov. 28, 29 and 30 at the Abu Dhabi Golf and Equestrian Club

This event is brought to you by AL RAYAN

Ticket Info: Khalidiyah mall, Abu Dhabi mall, venue box office, or call 00971503212234

Appearing live and in person will be TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy, Jeff Jarrett, Mr. Anderson, TNA TV Champion "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles, TNA World Tag Team Champions Motor City Machine Guns, "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero, TNA Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne, "Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe, "The Monster" Abyss, The Beautiful People, Beer Money, Jay Lethal, Brian Kendrick, Douglas Williams, "Prince of Punk" Shannon Moore, Orlando Jordan, and more!

TNA is being advertised at all major malls in Abu Dhabi to promote their November 28th and 30th shows. The ads feature Jeff Jarrett, Abyss and Jeff Hardy.

This great news for TNA and I really hope they film this show and put it up on their website. Not too sure how smart it is to bring Orlando Jordan over there tho.

Also it be great to see TNA set some deals up to do a few shows a year there since Abu Dhabi getting so many tourist from around the world and rich people moving their with a lot of money to spend.

This should turn out to be a great business move, surely the wrestling fans over there are starved of a product so they should do a few good houses.

Hopefully TNA makes some deals there, and not just going for a one time thing. That city has so much money it's not even funny.

Some sheik must have guaranteed a lot of money or something, weird place to suddenly take a tour too.

With the way Abu Dhabi is now it's not really that odd. You have tones of rich tourist and people going and moving there more then any other place in the world. Not only have the locals become much more wealthy but you have tons of people form the US living there with their families.

What!? A tour halfway across the world is announced 4 days before it happens - ofcourse it's odd. There is clearly a solid guaranteed payday no matter the
attendence - the events are taking place at the stunning Abu Dhabi Golf Club, (yet not mentioned anywhere under upcoming events on their site) the whole thing is bizarre.

The UFC has done major shows in the UAE. The only strange thing is that MMA beat wrestling to it.
Not on 4 days notice.

Great place to tour, but if these shows draw more than a couple of hundred each I will be stunned.

Great news that they are going where the money is, not so great that they have left it so late to tell people, but who nos how long ago they confirmed this.

Sorry to parrot others, but why announce it so late? Sounds very last-minute.

They'll probably get a good crowd though, I'd be surprised if they only had 200 or so...it's very short-notice but if someone has thrown good money their way, they'll probably be the kind of people that can get a crowd organised fast too.

Will the TNA talent have to pay for their flights? Could be very tough on some if so.

Yeah, aren't there strict decency laws and all that over there? Velvet ''letting the pigeons loose'' might not go down to well over there :D.
