Lockdown Goes Back To All Cage Format
TNA President Dixie Carter has announced that the TNA Lockdown PPV will go back to the all cage match format:
The event which takes place on March 9th, will feature the return of Jeff Hardy.
[There’s no need for everything to be inside the cage, the early matches are constrained because they can’t show up the main events, but by time the main events come around people are sick of staring at the cage. Just have one or two decent cage matches that make sense in storyline. Magnus for example is perfect for locking in the cage, so he can’t run off and none of his buddies can interfere.]
Mickie James Discusses TNA Locker Room
Former TNA Knockout Mickie James discussed what the TNA locker room was like before she departed the company, in a recent interview with the Baltimore Sun:
It was cool. It was going through a lot of changes. It was going from just taping in Orlando to taking the big jump and doing the live tapings on the road. I thought maybe, monetarily, it was a risky venture, but at the same time, I thought it was great for the show. It brought a lot of energy to the show from the fans that don’t necessarily usually get live TV. When you watch WWE, that live audience from city to city really brings in that energy to the show. I felt like in Orlando, it was the same people coming to watch you week after week, or every two weeks, and it was really hard to get them to move on stuff. You shouldn’t have to overly work to impress them. You should have to go out there and be who you are and tell your story and do your job. And that should be entertaining to the people if you do it well. And I felt going on the road really did that. And they’re kind of mixing it up now. Visit Wrestling Inc.I felt the morale was great though. Companies are always evolving and always changing, and you have to adapt to those changes. I don’t try to let that kind of thing affect my job, and affect what I do every night.
Devon Talks TNA Running Its Course
In a recent interview with Brady Hicks Devon discussed his TNA relationship running its course:
I think every company has growing pains. I think TNA is going through that growing pains. [Regarding] my departure from the company, to me it was just time to leave and I have no regrets. I’m very happy with the decision that I have made. I look forward to bigger and better things. [I’m] not saying that TNA wasn’t a good thing, it’s just that everything runs its course … it was time for me to move on. If you’re in a company for too long … ideas and things like that don’t necessarily register. You’re always fighting, trying to get them to understand you and vice versa … In terms of [TNA] being a family, it all depends on who you ask. I experienced good times there. I’ve also experienced bad times … This past August, I did not want to be there. I was ready to move on to the next chapter of my life. I’m not going to say it’s disfunctional. I just think that it’s growing pains … I wish them nothing but the best. I miss them dearly, but not enough to go back.
