TNA legitimately sold out the Grand Ballroom at the Manhattan Center on Friday 6/27 with 1,200 fans in attendance. This was the show that sold out first out of the trio, based on the advertising that the Hardys would be reuniting.
TNA must not have been happy about video clips from the first two days of taping getting out, as security was in full force stopping any fans they believed were shooting video at the show.
In an update on the Friday attendance, a source at the venue stated today it was in the 900 range. I had it pegged at no more than 650.
That would mean TNA drew about 3,300-3,400 fans over the three days. There was a feeling backstage that the crowd was partially a different set of fans every night as there were performers getting “welcome back” chants on the second and third nights when they had obviously been appearing all week at the venue.
Tommy Dreamer was backstage at the third taping working as an agent but did not appear before the crowd.
