Thanks to Marcus Christie for sending in the following report:
I was in attendance last night at TNA in Manchester. It was an amazing event. Well done to them. Just wish there were more bigger stars like Hogan, Flair, Nash, Hall, Waltman, Foley, Jarrett. They would have blown the roof of the arena if they had a story line to the tour. Maybe TNA Should introduce a tour with a story line. Such as fueds that could be settled in the UK. Or maybe bring a PPV Event across the pond. It worked for WWE in SummerSlam 1992. This country could earn TNA big bucks and a bigger fan base if they were to promote the shows alot more in the UK and also on there programming with Tazz and Mike Tennay. Thats why WWE has a bigger fanbase here. Because of the right advertising of events on UK TV.
The events last night were very good and something TNA should be proud of, but they have done the last 2 tours to the UK on the same basis. And the Dudleys, for the 2nd time, gave a piece of the table, signed by Dixie, Beer Money and themselves to a young fan called jack. The event was. Hope you post on your site.
Matches as follows
Amazing Red V Suicide V Chris Sabin — Amazing Red Won
The Pope V Rhyno - Pope won
Eric Young V Rob Terry – Rob Terry Won
Samoa Joe V Daniels, V AJ Styles V Hernandez – AJ Won
Desmond Wolfe V Kurt Angle – Kurt Angle Won
The Beautiful People V Sarita and Taylor Wilde – Taylor and Sarita Won
The Dudley Boys V British Invasion V Beer Money – 3D Won
They gave numerous Back Stage passes throughout the night.
Just hope next time they are in town, they pick me for backstage passes. They also sad from the outset they would be filming for Impact, but they never did which was a let down really, and also they could have filled the whole arena if they advertised properly on Spike TV. Only half the arena used for this event, but it was a full house.
