UPDATE x 2: The scheduled house shows that TNA
has canceled were pulled because the company may be taping TV shows in New York
City that week. TNA has a hold on several dates at the Manhattan Center and are
figuring out how many days to tape; if they tape several shows they could risk
taping in advance of Bound For Glory. That would make it impossible for them to
make any changes to the pay-per-view that may come up, not to mention spoiling
the results of the show. They ran into this problem with MVP at Slammiversary as
he got injured and the TV was already taped so they had no way to explain
A source adds that TNA is also working with United Talent Agency
to re-examine their current house show strategy and that there could be changes
coming to how they’re run.
UPDATE: As noted earlier, TNA has cancelled two
live events scheduled for next month: September 26th from Enid, Oklahoma and
September 27th from Salina, Kansas.
TNA cited “an unforeseen scheduling conflict” was the reason for
the 9/26 show being canceled.
Both shows have been removed from TNA’s touring schedule.
Aside from next month’s iMPACT! Wrestling tapings from the
Manhattan Center, the only other shows listed on TNA’s official website are
August 15th-17th in Pennsylvania and Maryland and September 5th-7th in Virginia
and North Carolina.
ORIGINAL: According to sources, TNA has
cancelled a series of late September house shows.
With TNA’s TV future uncertain and rumors they will not get picked
up by Spike TV, this does not appear to be good news for the company.
More on the story as it develops.
