I believe the Lockdown PPV being moved to March is a sign that TNA is going to pull back on the number of PPVs they promote a year. Dixie Carter has long been vocal about not wanting to promote monthly PPVs but existing contracts prevented the company from making less mean more. So, while nothing has been confirmed, it appears that they are finally making some changes.
The hearing in TNA vs. Scott Steiner is set for tomorrow AM at 9 in Nashville.
Speaking of Lockdown, here is the official press release for the PPV:
