Members of Team 3D and LAX knew the Electric Steel Cage was not going to work at the Lockdown PPV when they saw how it was being setup hours before the PPV was to go on the air. TNA management assured everyone that it would work.
As many saw on the PPV, TNA chose to run a “humming” sound of electricity over the PA system in the arena. WrestleZone.com reports that the sound was later turned down 10 minutes into the match, but was still said to be a major distraction for the live audience in St. Louis.
It should also be noted that sparks were supposed to shoot up off the cage when someone was “electrocuted”, but that didn’t end up happening. Instead, the lights flashed and the wrestlers involved were told to shake violently as if they were being electrocuted.
