First UK steel cage tour: TNA wrestling superstars come to Manchester as part of 'Road to Lockdown'

By Ian Silvera

Wrestling superstars Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy will be part of the ‘Road to Lockdown Tour’ returning to the UK next year.

The wrestling company TNA promised to give fans a gruesome steel cage match for the first ever time at every show and will be coming to Manchester Arena on January 25.

TNA President Dixie Carter said: "Our wonderful fans in the UK and Ireland have made us their number one rated wrestling show once again – and this tour is our way of saying thank you.”

She added: "This is the first time that the Lockdown steel cage has ever left US soil. Those matches will really be something special.”

The TNA tour follows IMPACT WRESTLING’s successful tapings at the O2 in London earlier this year where thousands of avid wrestling fans turned out.

Tickets for the four UK shows go on sale at 9am on Friday May 25.

Tickets can be bought from www.gigsandtours.com / 0844 811 0051 or www.ticketmaster.co.uk / 0844 826 2826.
