On the heels of its Bound for Glory event, Total Non-Stop Action (TNA) Wrestling has announced that its next pay-per-view will feature nothing but “Empty Arena” matches.
The new event, titled Final Desolation, will see wrestlers compete in a series of matches inside an arena completely devoid of fans.
In a press release issued this morning, TNA said the pay-per-view will “continue a beloved tradition of empty arena matches” from wrestling history:
“Remember the legendary empty-arena match between Terry Funk and Jerry Lawler from 1981?” reads the release.
“Or the entertaining empty-arena showdown between The Rock and Mankind during the 1999 Super Bowl halftime show? Now imagine an event that is nothing but empty-arena matches!”
TNA has declined to comment on whether “empty arena” gimmick of the upcoming pay-per-view is a result of flagging ticket sales and declining viewership.
It is generally believed, however, that all forthcoming TNA pay-per-views will be empty-arena events, whether they’re billed that way or not.
