It's quite interesting that TNA announced Lockdown 2013 details on the same Impact episode that two developments occurred - Austin Aries re-stated his goal to regain the TNA World Title and Wes Brisco "earned" a TNA contract via Gut Check.

Right now, the rumored goal for the big March PPV is Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries for the TNA World Title barring a change in direction or someone else catching fire between now and then. Hardy is featured prominently in the initial advertising for Lockdown, suggesting TNA is confident that Hardy will re-sign with the company. Also, TNA is high on Aries - as evidenced by his prominent role in the Hulk Hogan Family Drama storyline dominating TV.

The other big match advertised for Lockdown is the Lethal Lockdown match, which is setting up as Team TNA vs. Team Aces & Eights. The rumor for several weeks has been Wes Brisco being revealed as an Aces & Eights member; if the rumor holds true, Step One was Wes "earning" a TNA contract thanks to D-Lo Brown, who is also rumored to be revealed as an A&E insider. This would fulfill the storyline from several weeks ago when on-air TNA management pointed fingers at each other for being "the mole" feeding information to A&E.

Regarding individuals in Lethal Lockdown, Hulk Hogan is featured prominently in Lockdown advertising. Hogan could play the Mick Foley role as Team Captain for Team TNA or be a fifth man involved in the match, which would likely feature Hogan, Sting (not advertised yet and has not re-signed with TNA yet, but was taken out by A&E), Kurt Angle (would be betrayed by Wes), Bully Ray (involved with Hogan in trust issues), Joseph Park/Abyss, and another wrestler or two depending on Hogan and Sting. Team A&E would feature Devon, D.O.C., Wes Brisco, Garett Bischoff (if his rumored heel turn occurs, as well), and a fifth member (potentially D-Lo unless he plays a Team Captain role).

Overall, Hulk Hogan will be the centerpiece of TNA's advertising going forward, as TNA is attempting to draw a respectable crowd for a PPV held inside the NFL-stadium-sized Alamodome.
