– As PWMania.com reported, Bully Ray crashed Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore 3 event last night and challenged him to an Old School Street Fight at a December 30th TNA One Night Only “Old School” pay-per-view taping in the same building, the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.
The angle was put together as a way to cross promote TNA’s pay-per-view taping with the idea that TNA will promote Dreamer’s House of Hardcore and help raise it’s profile by acknowledging it while TNA gets the chance to promote their pay-per-view locally with an outside the box idea. Dreamer has not signed a deal with TNA but will be working the pay-per-view taping against Ray. The angle is just an example of TNA trying more unique and creative ways to promote their events heading into 2014.
This will be TNA’s first pay-per-view in New York State. Tickets go on sale next Friday at 10am.
– Speaking of House of Hardcore 3, here are some post-show comments from some of the House of Hardcore 3 talents:
Special night at @HouseofHardcore. The roster was extraordinary, the booking was brilliant, & it was the best locker room u'll find in 2013.
