So I have a question, is TNA always taped? I love live shows. Also does the WWE tape their shows? I can never tell for some reason.
Seattle Seahawks, Boise State, Notre Dame, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, Seattle Mariners, Seattle Supersonics
They are live, but the shows from England are taped do to the time difference.
They are going on the road starting March 14 and the show will be live.
I figured Brisco would turn on Angle since he was escorting him out to the ring, but then I thought to myself "If that was the case, I would have seen a spoiler for it by now" (I don't go looking for spoilers but I often accidently stumble upon them...I guess I did a great job avoiding them for this show).
I wish Angle would have ripped Garrett's mask off and then I wish Brisco would have attacked Angle, undone his hair and then put his mask on over his face to reveal his allegiance. I think Brisco is going to make an excellent heel. He looks like he could be such a douche in real life.

.So after tracking the ticket sales for Lockdown since they were released in December, here's what I currently have.
• 6600 tickets are on sale so far, made up by the 8 sections on the floor and the 8 sections of elevated seating.
• 2618 tickets have been sold so far and 3981 are still available.
All floor sections are sold out. The amount of seats sold/available in the elevated sections are:
• Section 101 115 sold 497 available
• Section 144 656 sold 188 available
• Section 143 328 sold 554 available
• Section 142 8 sold 433 available
• Section 141 12 sold 610 available
• Section 140 15 sold 607 available
• Section 139 6 sold 410 available
• Section 138 378 sold 682 available
It should be noted that the amount of tickets sold for Lockdown so far is more than the amount sold for Slammiversary two weeks before the event, which with some local promotion by Hulk Hogan just days before the event spiked the sales and went on to be the highest U.S. attendance in TNA history. So don't be nervous about the number; as long as they do some local promotion with Hogan they should do just fine considering they are in a better position now this far out than they were with Slammiversary just two weeks from the event. I will continue to post updates on the sales here and also on my Twitter account @MisterTNA when they become available.

Someone sent me a private message saying they busted out laughing in the library when they saw my sig. They told me not to remove it so they can show their friends.

This is what i said would happen last week, if they made Hogan's 1st appearance of the night and segment with Bully at the top of the second hour it would pop a big number....because it had been built up the previous week. They seem have to found a format thats working, use Hogan/Bully/Brooke to start the hour, and then follow it with a Knockouts segment in an effort to hold as many of those viewers as possible. They have done this pattern now for the past 3, maybe 4 weeks. You have got to limit Hogan's appearances, thats the key, make every time he walks out there feel like its something important. He will draw when thats the case. Theres no hook for his appearance next week though....so i probably wouldve even use him. Make no mistake about it though, for as much as people have crapped on the Bully/Brooke stuff, it is actually their best drawing storyline i can remember in a long time. It has alot to do with Hulk being involved though.First Hour Break Down
Q1: Impact opened with a show-low 0.98 rating for Daniels and Kazarian's "Braveheart" bit setting up the opening match with Magnus, followed by a commercial break. (LW - 0.96 rating)

Q3: Impact increased to a 1.13 rating for Joseph Park vs. Robbie E., the first few minutes of Austin Aries vs. Chavo Guerrero, and two full commercial breaks. (LW - 1.08 rating)
Q4: Impact dipped to a 1.06 rating for the finish of Aries vs. Chavo, one commercial, and a Kurt Angle backstage segment. (LW - 1.18 rating. This was the biggest difference from last week.)
Second Hour Break Down
Q5: Impact popped to a 1.38 rating for Sting, Hulk Hogan, Bully Ray, and Brooke Hogan's in-ring segment with a new wave of viewers tuning in at the top of the hour. There was one commercial at the end of the segment. (LW - 1.36 rating for similar segment)
Q6: Impact began a post-Hogan Family Drama slide with a 1.25 rating for Dixie Carter's announcement of Impact going on the road, Velvet Sky teaming with James Storm against Tara and Jessie, and one commercial. (LW - 1.24 rating, continuing the pattern.)
Q7: Impact dipped slightly to a 1.22 rating for various video packages and backstage segments, plus one commercial. (LW - 1.20 rating, continuing the pattern.)
