TNA ISSUES PARENTAL ADVISORY FOR “LOCKDOWN”
Nashville, TN (April 11, 2005) – Last week on Total Nonstop Action Wrestling “iMPACT!,” Director Of Authority, Dusty Rhodes announced that all matches on the April 24th pay-per-view event “Lockdown” will be held in Six Sides of Steel. This announcement marks the first time an entire professional wrestling pay-per-view event will take place in a steel cage.
Due to the sometimes violent nature of a steel cage match and the unpredictability of live television, TNA management wants to reiterate and emphasize the TV-14 rating that the show receives.
According to the TV Parental Guidelines, a TV-14 program is a program that contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under14 years of age. Parents are strongly cautioned and urged to exercise greater care in monitoring this program and are cautioned against letting children under the age of 14 watch unattended.
A steel cage is professional wrestling’s most unforgiving structure and some of pro wrestling’s most horrifying moments have occurred in this type of match. This will be only the fourth Six Sides of Steel Match in TNA history, which has produced some of the most talked about moments in the sport over the past year.
