TNA Impact Wrestling has toured the U.K. and taped six weeks worth of "Impact Wrestling" television episodes while overseas. That means every episode leading up to the "Lockdown" pay-per-view has been filmed and the main events for the big event have been set. According to PWInsider.com on Feb. 1, the main event will be an eight man Lethal Lockdown match.
The match was set up with an angle that started on this last week's TNA Impact Wrestling television show when MVP showed up as a new investor in the company. For the next few weeks, MVP and Dixie Carter will engage in a war of words and lines will be drawn.
Originally, the Lethal Lockdown match was supposed to pit Bobby Roode, the BroMans and Rockstar Spud against MVP, The Wolves and James Storm. However, as the weeks go on, things change drastically. Austin Aries will turn bad in a match where Bobby Roode is battling MVP and James Storm turns on Gunner.
As a result the new match will see the reunited Beer Money teaming with Austin Aries and Rockstar Spud against MVP, The Wolves and the returning Jeff Hardy.
Samoa Joe won the number one contendership when he pinned Magnus last week and he will retain it with a win over Bobby Roode next week. Things will continue to build as Samoa Joe will face Magnus for the TNA World Championship at "TNA Lockdown" as well.
The third main event for "TNA Lockdown" will see Kurt Angle battle Ethan Carter III. This should be perfect since it will give Angle six weeks to heal up.
