Jeff Jarrett is wanting more seriousness to the product and more ring time. Finally! Apparently Dutch Mantel wants what Jarrett’s wants.
In March, TNA Impacted averaged a 1.09 cable rating, which included the 3/27 live edition.
TNA will be taping Impact on 4/15 and 4/16, which is Tuesday and Wednesday, instead of the usual Monday and Tuesday taping schedule, since the crew has to come from Boston to Orlando.
Despite a snafu with tickets sales though the company’s web site, the U.K. tour will be TNA’s most successful house show run to date. The 6/13 show Liverpool is already sold out, and TNA added a 6/12 date at the 1,700-seat venue. The 6/14 Conventry show has sold 2,000 tickets and 6/15 in Brentwood has sold 1,600 tickets, at last check.
Speaking of house shows, the 3/19 show in Springfield, MO drew 1,200 fans. The 3/20 Evansville, IN show drew just over 1,000, and the 3/21 show in St. Louis, MO drew 2,300 fans to the Family Arena.
