Lockdown (2010) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion, which took place on April 18, 2010 at the Family Arena in Saint Charles, Missouri. It was the sixth event under the Lockdown chronology and the fourth event of the 2010 TNA PPV schedule. In the tradition of Lockdown events, every match took place inside a steel cage. It was the first Lockdown event with a four-sided steel cage.

Background[edit | edit source]
The sixth installment to the Lockdown PPV chronology was first announced in a press release on January 16, 2010 regarding the February Against All Odds PPV event. The date and area of the event was not announced until February 4, 2010, when another press release proclaimed that it would take place on April 18, 2010 at the Family Arena in Saint Charles Missouri. A tradition of the series is that all encounters take place inside a steel cage which will be continued. On January 17, 2010 at their Genesis PPV event, TNA discontinued the usage of their normal six sided ring, with a four sided ring being chosen instead. It was the first Lockdown to feature the traditional four-sided cage.
Storylines[edit | edit source]
Lockdown featured 9 professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers will be portrayed as villains, heroes or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that build tension and culminate into a wrestling match or series of matches.
The headline match for the Lockdown event featured the TNA World Heavyweight Champion KJ Styles defending his title against Jared Keller, who, at Against All Odds, won the opportunity to challenge for the title.
At the beginning of the show it was announced that X Division Champion Paul Kalgard was unable to get to St Louis due to the massive flight cancellations worldwide and was therefore stripped of the title. The Motor City Machineguns' match with Brian Woods and Eason was changed to a four man Xscape match, in which the winner would replace Kalgard in the X Division Title Match. Eason was victorious, but was unable to capture the gold.
It was also announced that Brian-Pac had no-showed the event and would not compete in his scheduled match teaming with Scott Hall to take on Team 3D. Later in the night it was announced that Hall needed to find a partner, or go into a handicap match against Team 3D. At the conclusion of Kevin Nash's match he announced he would replace Syxx-Pac as Hall's tag partner.
