We previously reported on the dismal attendance numbers generated by TNA’s recent tour of Abu Dhabi. The initial numbers were less than 400 people per show, and the follow up is that all three house shows failed to attract 100 fans paid each night. The actual numbers are closer to 70 fans paid for each of their three houses in the United Arab Emirates.
Gerweck.net has learned that TNA talent was very upset when it was learned that a boxing ring was set up instead of a wrestling ring. Compounding the problem, talent on the tour was not happy with their pay offs to boot.
Each of the shows were described as extremely unorganized. The host cities were cordial to the talent, but the shows themselves were said to be disastrous. On a side note, these shows were not official TNA events, and were subleased to private promoters in India.
