    Don’t get worked by Dixie. According to a fan report on Prowrestling.net, “The estimated audience is between 6,000-7,000. The arena website says the building holds 10,000 and the upper decks across from the ramp and above the hard camera were vacant. A staff member later estimated 3,500 for the attendance.” If it was ‘sold-out’ it was only because they blocked off thousands of seats and of course how much of the audience was papered is anybody’s guess but probably a lot.

      Attendance was around 7000, and they only tarped off what was the super high nosebleed seats, as the arena doesn’t use them for most shows. And the local media gave away very few seats, so it wasn’t papered.

        but the on-site correspondent said there were vacant seats on the hard camera side and that’s standard TNA practice to make the arena look full for TV. That’s clever to do but if you’re blocking off large chunks of an arena for that purpose or if they blocked off 3000 of the “super high nosebleed seats” (sorry but the 10,000 seat ASU Convocation Center is not the Superdome), it’s just smart marketing spin if they claim to be sold-out. TNA is also known for giving away lots of free tickets and not just to the media. Until we get reliable attendance and gate figures, the title of the article should be TNA claims sell-out.

          The seats they blocked off on the camera side consisted of around 2000-2500 seats. I was there, and analyzed how much was based off of how the venue was set up for Raw 11 years ago, when ASU was a full 12,200 person sellout. They blocked off those on the camera side, and a small section opposite the camera that was essentially behind the tron, as well as around another 1500 behind the tron, where they set the merch booth, and around 500 opposite the tron due to ASU not having a great handicap seating section.
