TNA to Invade the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City?

Jason Powell of Pro Wrestling Dot Net is reporting that TNA is renting the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City for three nights this Summer.  The report goes on to say that the shows will each take place in June, July, and August.  If true, this is wonderful news as fans have wanted to see TNA take Impact to New York City since the company began taking the show on the road last year.  I can't help but notice that one of the shows will be in July; could it be for Destination X?  Interestingly enough, when we were discussing possible locations for Slammiversary, I mentioned that Destination X in Hammerstein Ballroom would trigger the mark out of all mark outs in me. Kudos to TNAMecca supporter Will for the heads up.

UPDATE: Today, we learned that there might be some discrepancies in the original report by Jason Powell due to leaked misinformation. However, after doing our own due diligence, it appears that the part of the report that we care about - TNA booking the Hammerstein Ballroom - is accurate.  You will notice that we did not include any of Powell's nonessential tidbits regarding TNA finances and theories by his "source" to our initial report. We wanted no part of such drivel simply because it all sounded, at the time, like anti-TNA propaganda.  In any case, we will refrain from commenting on the disputed parts of the report as we simply have no interest in the matter.  Our focus has been and will continue to be the rumor that TNA will reportedly book the Hammerstein Ballroom this Summer, which we will continue to monitor so we can bring you something official.
