Neil Trama III sent along the following:
Hey guys, just got back from the TNA house show at "The Ice Box" in Scranton and I have a few live notes for you.
Arena was as small as can be and was borderline empty. There were 500 people at the absolute most, 350 more likely. I work at an area radio station and if what was given to our station was any indication of what the rest of them got then the show was VERY heavily papered. In all honesty, I’d be shocked if over 100 people paid to attend. (Example: The "arena" is a youth hockey rink inside of a shopping complex. I got a parking space in the first row of cars next to the front door, roughly 20 feet away. I arrived ten minutes before showtime.)
The good news for TNA is that pretty much everyone who did bother to show up was very into the show. Sure there were some who didn’t really know who the faces and heels were and there were some people by me who were cheering for Angelina Love during the Beautiful People’s match, thinking she was out there, but by and large the vast majority of people in attendance were TNA fans and seemed to have a great time.
The show itself was almost a carbon copy of last night in New Jersey.
