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 it.
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.
