Impact Wrestling President Ed Nordholm spoke with the Ottawa Citzen to promote the Bound For Glory pay-per-view taking place on 11/5 in Ottawa, Canada.
Nordholm was asked why they were holding the show at the Aberdeen Pavilion instead of an arena. “We’re legacy people,” Nordholm said. “It’s a great facility with a rich history. An arena would be a big place for us to sell. We want to have a venue with an intimacy with the crowd. The crowd will pack it rather than be spread out through it. It’s just the right size, it’ll ensure we can get people in the stands where they’ll have a connection with our wrestlers and vice-versa.”
It was also revealed that the new tagline is “Less Talk More Action” and they are hoping to get 500 people per night for the pay-per-view and subsequent TV tapings. That falls in line with reports suggesting that they would be ditching storylines that revolve around authority figures.
The fact that they are hoping for 500 people for their biggest show of the year underscores the amount of work needed to be done to make the company profitable.
As of now, tickets are not on sale but, according to the article, they are expected to go on sale within a couple of weeks.
