Possible Reason for Lockdown Change, Bob Ryder Update, Dixie
– TNA President Dixie Carter revealed that TNA staffer Bob Ryder has been cleared to return to work after some health problems. She tweeted on Thursday:
“One guy keeps TNA moving each week. @bryderTNA has dealt w/ serious health issues for a year & never stopped working even from the hospital! Well, as of today @bryderTNA has been cleared to return full time to the office 12/10. We are so proud of you! Welcome back Bob!”
Dixie also commented on Lockdown being hosted in San Antonio next March:
“Can’t tell you how excited I am that #Lockdown will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas! First time EVER in this great city.”
– As we noted, next year’s Lockdown pay-per-view will be held in March instead of April. PWInsider reports that this may be a sign of TNA cutting back on the number of pay-per-view events that they promote each year. Dixie Carter has been vocal about not wanting to promote monthly pay-per-views for a long time, but existing contracts prevented TNA from doing less.
