TNA’s Impact Wrestling will be returning to the UK and Ireland early next year for a “Road to Lockdown” Tour and they promise an action packed and extreme show for their fans over the pond.
The action-packed live events will take place in Dublin (January 21), Glasgow (January 23), Nottingham (January 24), Manchester (January 25) and at London’s Wembley Arena (January 26). The show at Wembley will see two episodes of TNA IMPACT WRESTLING taped for broadcast in more than 120 countries around the globe, including on Challenge TV in the UK and Ireland.
The 2013 UK tour will bring the Lockdown steel cage to European soil for the first time ever, also live TNA events in Dublin, Glasgow, Nottingham and Manchester.
Worldwide wrestling stars announced for the five events include Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, James Storm, AJ Styles, Mr. Anderson, Rob Van Dam, Velvet Sky and Gail Kim. Many more top names will be added in the coming months.
TNA President Dixie Carter said: “Our wonderful fans in the UK and Ireland have made us their number one rated wrestling show once again – and this tour is our way of saying thank you. This is the first time that the Lockdown steel cage has ever left US soil. Those matches will really be something special. Taping TNA IMPACT WRESTLING at Wembley this January was a high point in the 10 year history of this company, so coming back in 2013 is something everyone is looking forward to.”
