TNA Wrestling - Victory Road PPV on Sunday, July 13 in Houston

TNA Wrestling LogoThis Sunday I’m dragging Aly to Reliant Arena here in Houston, TX to watch TNA Wrestling's Victory Road '08 Pay-Per-View. I hope you don’t think less of me after reading that. Growing up in the 80’s The Blot was a huge fan of professional wrestling, and while I returned to watching the “sport” during its renaissance period of the late 90’s, I haven’t really followed the industry much lately other than reading up on it online. Like most of us who grew up following the Hulkster back in the day before he ever knew best, you probably haven’t heard of wrestling’s newest player, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.

TNA Wrestling - Victory Road 08 Pay-Per-View
Founded in 2002 by Jeff Jarrett, TNA Wrestling has quickly grown to solidify its position as the number 2 organization in wrestling, especially after its weekly television show, TNA iMPACT!, debuted on Spike TV. I haven’t attended a live wrestling event since before the year 2000, but when I heard Houston was hosting its very first TNA PPV I thought it was a great opportunity to checkout this up and coming wrestling brand.

King Booker T and Queen SharmellWhat finally convinced me to purchase the tickets is when I found out one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, Houston’s very own Booker T, was headlining the PPV in a TNA World Championship Match against the TNA World Champion Samoa Joe. I’m hoping since the PPV is in Houston (where Booker T’s wrestling academy/wrestling promotion the Pro Wrestling Alliance is located) and it’s his first time to headline a TNA PPV singles match, he might finally win his very first TNA World Championship since leaving the WWE. If you live in the Houston area and are interested in attending the event, tickets are still available here at
