TNA Wrestling’s annual steel cage match spectacular, Lockdown, will take place in Britain for the first time ever, as part of the TNA Maximum Impact 8 Tour in January 2016.
London’s SSE Arena Wembley will host TNA’s most dangerous night of the year, with matches taking place inside an unforgiving, six-sided, 15-foot reinforced steel cage.
Lockdown will form one half of a double Impact Wrestling TV taping at Wembley on Saturday January 30, which will be watched by millions of fans in more than 120 countries around the world, including on Challenge in the UK and Pop in the USA.
Double TV tapings will also take place at the Manchester Arena on Friday January 29 and the Birmingham Barclaycard Arena on Sunday January 31.
The Birmingham event will be headlined by TNA’s trademark King of the Mountain match, which is also coming to Britain for the first time ever. The bout, which dates back to June 2004, sees five men battle to climb a ladder and hang a title belt.
The Manchester Arena will witness the anything goes, no-disqualification, weapon filled, hardcore war that is Monster’s Ball. This match has only ever taken place in Britain once before – when Eric Young and Abyss tore the house down in Glasgow in 2014.
TNA today also added 11 more stars and knockouts to the shows – Abyss, Rebel, Awesome Kong, Jessie Godderz, DJ Z, Eli Drake, Trevor Lee, Andrew Everett, Tyrus, Marti and Jade.
Prior to each show on the tour, British rock band Chasing Cadence will be playing an acoustic set for fans in the arena foyers.
