TNA FORCES POSTPONEMENT OF NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS
Monday, March 3rd, 2008 * 12:26PM
Millennium Wrestling Federation officials were informed by Total Non-Stop Action officials that due to WrestleMania taking place in Orlando, they are changing their TV taping schedule that week to Thursday, March 27th-Saturday, March 29th. TNA required that Black Machismo, Homicide and Chris Sabin all be present in Orlando on March 29th. That would have only left Abyss available to appear in Somerville and forcing the MWF to find three replacements after advertising the aforementioned three.
President Cena did not want to bait and switch by giving fans "replacements" - he decided to make the event even bigger! NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS has a huge advance, so the president has decided to postpone the event until Saturday, June 21st. . .only with three bonuses! Abyss, Black Machismo, Homicide and Chris Sabin will all be in attendance. There will be live wrestling, a VIP exclusive Q&A session and autograph/photo fanfest. However, President Cena has signed WWE Hall of Famer The Iron Sheik to appear live at the big event!!! And if that wasn't enough, not only will fans who buy tickets in advance receive a free autographed photo of Alex Shelley, but they'll receive a second free autographed photo - of Goldust (TNA superstar Black Reign)!! That's $20 in free gifts, just for purchasing tickets in advance. For tickets that have already purchased tickets only, TNA will be providing a special raffle item that we'll give away at the big event June 21st.
MWFprowrestling.com received the following statement from TNA:
TNA and Spike TV decided on February 28th that TNA IMPACT TV tapings would move from Monday and Tuesday, March 24th-25th, to Thursday - Saturday, March 27th-29th. As a result of this decision TNA talent bookings for various Independent wrestling companies on Saturday March 29th must be canceled. TNA regrets that it must cancel these bookings, but remains committed to allowing Independent wrestling promotions to have the opportunity to book our TV/PPV stars around our PPV, TV and House Show priorities. Fortunately, no promoter had bought flights nor paid fees for the talent booked on 3-29.
TNA, Abyss, Homicide, Chris Sabin & Jay Lethal apologize to the fans of the MWF, Somerville and the Keep The Kids Off The Streets campaign and look forward to the next opportunity for TNA stars to appear for the Millennium Wrestling Federation.
President Cena, Commissioner Von Johnson and the entire Millennium Wrestling Federation family apologize for this postponement. We decided to postpone the event to give the fans what we advertised (with bonuses!) instead of only delivering Abyss and other stars.
With the addition of The Iron Sheik, NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS is shaping up to be one of the biggest MWF live events of all time!
