I went to a WWE House show in 2004 at Hallem and i agree it would be a great valne.  About London i would say there was about 8,000 there in Manchester, but bare in mind Wembley Arena is much bigger.
Lifes what you make it.

I choose to out think people, who are too dumb and pick on the rich.

* MEN Arena is the biggest indoor arena in Europe and I think the Millenium Dome (O2) is second.
 
* If they can get their biggest crowd in London they have no reason to waste their first PPV on them.
 
* Sheffield for a pay per view could easily think about filing 12,000 as people will come from all over to be part of a first.
 
* I'd also buy a Gregs sausage roll for everyone off here at Meadowhall shopping centre before we caught the 5 minute tram ride to the arena Tongue

I'm quite amazed to hear that i thought MEN held 17'000 tops.

I love Sheffield as a city and Manchester far more than London.

* This is just one of many articles the official TNA website have up about the tour.
 
* Some of the cards were pretty small at least on paper.
 
* What was the length of the shows like? Were the matches pretty long?
 
* Good to see the Big O picking up a victory at Wembley Arena.

The main event was long, must have been around fifteen minutes I'd say. Some matches though were lucky if they got to five minutes (Shelly vs Lethal & Brutus vs Creed for example).
 
Whether it was the fast paced action of the X division matches I'm not sure, the matches involving them certainly were quick in my opinion.

There was only six matches on the card i saw last year, which i thought was a short, so with this being a bigger tour, i was expecting at least nine, but just got seven. 
It sounds to me than over the couse of tour fans were given plenty to short about, but i'm not sure if they got value for money overall.  There was some lazy booking.

* A pretty decent trailer which would have been better if it had been longer, so felt like it wasn't as rushed.

* It would be good if TNA gave us the exact crowds of the tours and not rounded up amounts.

* I like how they state the obvious about them being the fastest growing Wrestling company in the world lol.

* Dixie looked lovely from what they showed of her on the video......
