“TNA Lockdown” takes place this weekend, as TNA Impact Wrestling will hold one of their few remaining live pay-per-events remaining on their schedule. According to PWInsider.com on March 5, TNA has added a new match to the already stacked lineup with Mr. Anderson vs. Samuel Shaw the new addition.
Shaw portrays a creepy stalker who has been terrorizing Christy Hemme recently in vignettes on the TNA Impact Wrestling television show. This went overboard a couple of weeks ago when he started attacking anyone that he saw Hemme talking to, including Mr. Anderson who was just showing Hemme pictures on his phone of his newly born twins.
Mr. Anderson, on the other hand, is looking at a new direction for his character since winning his feud against former Aces & Eights partner Bully Ray.
All matches on “TNA Lockdown” will take place inside the confines of a steel cage.
Here are the other matches scheduled for “TNA Lockdown” this Sunday.
Japanese legend The Great Muta will return to the United States to team with new X-Division champion Seiya Sanada and Tigre Uno to face Bad Influence and Chris Saban. Kurt Angle will look for revenge for attacks that took him out of action against Ethan Carter III.
Former tag team partners Gunner and James Storm will battle and Madison Rayne will defend her Knockouts title against Gail Kim.
There will be two main events.
The first is a Lethal Lockdown match with control of the company on the line. MVP will fight with his teammates The Wolves and Jeff Hardy against Dixie Carter’s team of Bobby Roode, Austin Aries and the BroMans. Lethal Lockdown sees two men start in the ring and a new man comes in at intervals until all eight men are in the ring.
The TNA Championship is also on the line as Magnus defends his title against Samoa Joe.
“TNA Lockdown” airs Sunday night at 8 p.m. EST on pay-per-view.
