Why Lethal Lockdown Had No Roof, More Names Turn Down TNA’s Knockouts PPV, Bully Ray
– TNA had plans in place to bring down a cage roof for the Lethal Lockdown match last Sunday but during rehearsals, something malfunctioned with the mechanism that lowers the roof and they had to do away with the plan. This is why Sting brought the weapons down to the ring.
– Internally, the feeling was that Lockdown wasn’t a total hit but was saved by the big angle with Bully Ray and Aces & 8s at the end. There was talk of having Ray and Devon hit a 3D on Jeff Hardy to end the match but officials wanted the focus to be on Ray and not the reunion of Team 3D.
– Add former TNA Knockouts Winter and Rain (Peyton Banks) to the list of women who have turned down TNA’s offer to return for the upcoming all-Knockouts pay-per-view taping. We noted before that Roxxi, Sarita, Traci Brooks, Angelina Love and Awesome Kong have also turned the company down to return that night.
