The Border City Wrestling event last Thursday that featured numerous TNA talent and the surprising NWA World Heavyweight Title change drew an estimated 700 fans. As noted before, this was seen as a test for possible TNA house show events in the near future. Many involved with the promotion felt it could have drawn even more with some more TV and radio advertising. TNA does feel confident coming off the show and hope that after some publicity of being on Spike TV could help them draw well if they decide to go forward with house show events.

TNA's website also hinted that they are expected to officially announce a TV deal with the new Canadian Fight Network that is slated to go on the air this Wednesday.
