NASHVILLE, Tennessee (January 23, 2012) --Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling has announced Nashville will be home for “Lockdown 2012” presented by Direct Auto Insurance. The annual live, all steel cage pay-per-view extravaganza is scheduled for Sunday night, April 15, at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. This will be TNA Wrestling’s first televised event from Nashville since 2007. Tickets for “Lockdown 2012” start at $15 and go on sale Friday, January 27 at all Ticketmaster outlets or ticketmaster.com.

“Lockdown 2012” is promised to be the most brutal pay-per-view event of the year featuring every match contested inside a 15-foot reinforced steel cage, making it the only all-steel cage Pay-Per-View event in professional wrestling. The TNA World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line and two teams will compete in a “Lethal Lockdown” match for an unforgettable night of action. TNA Wrestling began in Nashville in the summer of 2002 and this June marks the tenth year anniversary. Fans can celebrate 10 years of body-slams with TNA’s weekly flagship show, Impact Wrestling airing every Thursday night on Spike.

The reigning TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Roode, leads the invasion of Impact Wrestling stars including Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair along with Tennessee native “Cowboy” James Storm, Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle, “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam, the lovely and lethal Knockouts and more.

“TNA Entertainment couldn’t be more pleased to announce one of our most exciting events of the year “Lockdown” will be live from Nashville on April 15. To be able to offer the fans of our hometown such a powerful night of explosive action is thrilling,” said TNA President Dixie Carter. “We are going to celebrate 10 years in Nashville with one of our biggest pay-per-view events to date.”

“As the presenting sponsor for ‘Lockdown 2012,’ we’re thrilled about the return of TNA to the Nashville market,” stated Direct Auto Insurance Senior Vice President of Marketing Peter Tahinos. “Our corporate headquarters is located here in Nashville as are many long standing Direct Auto customers who are also loyal wrestling fans.”

Tickets for “TNA Lockdown 2012” go on sale Friday, January 27 at 10am, at all TicketMaster locations, the Nashville Municipal Auditorium box office, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000
