“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,” said Dixie Carter, TNA President.
“This is the first time that the Lockdown steel cage has ever left US soil. Those matches will really be something special.
“Taping TNA IMPACT WRESTLING at Wembley this January was a high point in the 10 year history of this company, so coming back in 2013 is something everyone is looking forward to.”
