On Sunday night's pay-per-view, TNA Wrestling presents one of its biggest events of the year with Lockdown. The event, which is set to air live from The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, is TNA's second pay-per-view of 2013.

Below are the complete lineup card for the Lockdown pay-per-view and match predictions:


Robbie E vs. Robbie T in a singles match.

On the final edition of Impact! Wrestling before Lockdown this past Thursday, the feud between Robbie E and Robbie T was briefly shown. The feud began when Robbie T began to grow tired of his partner's actions. However, TNA did not focus on the feud enough to make it relevant for viewers to buzz about. Robbie T should come away with the clear victory in this match.

Your predicted winner: Robbie T.


Joey Ryan vs. Joseph Park in a singles match.

Where have Ryan and Park been as of late? Just like the match above, this feud was hardly promoted leading up to Lockdown. However, this appears to be a unique match in the making, given Park's most recent success in the ring and Ryan's ability as a performer. The outcome of this match could be difficult to predict, but look for Park to have his arm raised at the end of the battle.

Your predicted winner: Joseph Park.


Zema Ion vs. Christian York vs. Kenny King for the TNA X-Division Championship.

These three high-flying wrestlers should participate in a pretty entertaining match at Lockdown. However, King is way too early in his X-Division title run to lose the belt. After taking the belt from Rob Van Dam, King should be the person leading the division at the moment, and a victory is needed at Lockdown to make that happen.

Your predicted winner to retain the X-Division title: Kenny King.


Gail Kim vs. Velvet Sky for the TNA Knockouts Championship.

With Sky's most recent return to TNA, there should be no reason to strip the belt off her waist. Although Kim does make a solid title holder, Sky is just beginning to find her footing again in TNA.

Your predicted winner to retain the Knockouts division title: Velvet Sky.


Christopher Daniels and Kazarian vs. Bobby Roode and Austin Aries vs. Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez for the TNA Tag Team Championship.

Expect this match to conclude in a wild ending but with no title switch. Roode and Aries make a very strong tag team that could easily dominate the landscape in TNA. Although the work of Daniels and Kazarian has been stellar since their partnership, TNA should keep the belts where they belong with Roode and Aries. Unfortunately for Guerrero and Hernandez, their time as tag team partners has not generated much success despite once owning the titles.

Your predicted winners to retain the Tag Team titles: Bobby Roode and Austin Aries.


Wes Brisco vs. Kurt Angle in a steel cage match.

Angle is a masterful performer when it comes to steel cage matches. However, standing in his way is a young and rising talent in Brisco, who recently turned heel by joining Aces & Eights. Although Angle should have an upper hand in this match, the outcome could end in Brisco's favor if TNA were to continue to push the button with Aces & Eights. Look for an upset in this match with Brisco shockingly winning the steel cage match.

Your predicted winner: Wes Brisco.


Aces & Eights (Devon, Mr. Anderson, D.O.C, Garrett Bischoff and Mike Knox) vs. Team TNA (Sting, Samoa Joe, Magnus, James Storm and Eric Young) in a Lethal Lockdown match.

Aces & Eights should not end at Lockdown. With D-Lo Brown recently joining the group as the vice president, TNA can still grow it into a successful storyline leading up to its biggest pay-per-view of the year, Bound For Glory. There is more work to be done with Aces & Eights.

Your predicted winners: Aces & Eights. 


Bully Ray vs. Jeff Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

Ray's magnificent work as a singles wrestler should reward him with the TNA world heavyweight title. However, don't be surprised if Ray wins the belt from Hardy by turning heel and joining Aces & Eights. TNA would truly generate enormous buzz by having Ray turn on his accomplishments as a babyface wrestler. The addition of Ray would enormously boost Aces & Eights' chances to grow.

Your predicted winner and new TNA world heavyweight champion: Bully Ray.
