TNA's Steel Cage is to come to the UK

SoCal Val and Mr Anderson made the big announcement which fans from the UK and Ireland have been waiting for on Sunday March 13th 2012’s episode of Impact Wrestling. TNA’s Lockdown cage is set to go on a vacation in January 2013 as it will leave America for the first time ever.  

Each of the locations on the ‘Road to Lockdown’ tour will be treated to at least one steel cage match. That wasn’t the only news! Following the success of the tapings over here last year there will be a double taping at Wembley, as two episodes of TNA Impact Wrestling will be recorded for broadcast in more than 120 countries around the world. For those of us not lucky enough to be able to go to those tapings we will be able to see the show on Challenge TV.

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.” I along with thousands of other fans will no doubt be thanking her at the live shows with a chant of “Thank you Dixie”.

If you didn’t manage to get tickets during the company’s presale close to this year’s tour for 2012’s prices then you have the chance to get a ticket to take a seat in Dublin’s and some of the UK’s finest arenas to watch what promises to be a spectacular event on May 22 for Ireland and May 25th at 9am for all other shows.
