-TNA reportedly really liked The Manhattan Center and the atmosphere surrounding the building.
-Abyss and Samoa Joe were backstage but were not used.
-The show was not sold out, despite previous claims. There were about 550-650 fans in attendance.
-The 6 sided ring was a new purchase for TNA, as the old 6 sided rings were converted into traditional 4 sided rings.

-TNA is reportedly using less backstage segments and trying to focus more on what's happening in front of the live crowd.
