    I'd say the new wrestlers like Bad Bones are on fairly low money since they are not well known in the States. It's the smart thing to do when looking to cut costs.

    I know Bad Influence have their contracts up soon so if Jarrett can get his promotion started before then, I reckon they will be two of the first names signed.

    Assuming they dont try and make everyone exclusive like TNA did, there is a fcuk tonne of talent available now. Hero, Styles and Shelley as your main eventers (not to mention the likes of Cole, Steen, Elgin etc), Bad Influence and Young Bucks as your top tag teams. Sorted.

    Another new video - http://vimeo.com/87951598

    Great to see Karen in so little clothes but anyone get the impression that they're going to announce a Karen/Jeff reality series and not a new wrestling company :P

    The videos so far have been **** to be fair.

    Jesus she looks good for her age. No mention of wrestling it was like a calender shoot

    My best defence of her is that she is/was a REALLY big star in AAA in Mexico. Jeff was the one hanging on her coat tails not the other way round.

    I'm reading some reports about AJ, Matt Hardy, Crimson and John Morrison possibly joining Jeff in his new promotion but the website doesn't seem all that reliable. But if so, it's a good mix of established faces and a wasted talent in TNA.

    The promotion hasnt even been confirmed yet. It's just sites naming free agents.

    Some Indy gut I think. Couldn't be a Main Event player with a name like Phil!

    Wouldn't say so. Seems more like a Phil Brooks guy. At least for the moment anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,478 ✭✭✭✭gnfnrhead


    Looks too skinny. A stupid haircut and way too many tattoo's. He'll never make it. :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,478 ✭✭✭✭gnfnrhead


    Think it's safe to forget about it for the time being. Toby Keith has come out and said that the new project will debut on CMT in January 2015. And its rumoured that a Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett reality series would be the lead in to the new promotion.

    CMT is basically MTV and is a sister channel of Spike.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert


    Dave Meltzer said that part of Jeff Jarrett's "release" from TNA was that he couldn't approach SPIKE TV about the project so yeah CMT seems to be the destination.

    Doubt they can afford Punk unless it's a short-term/one time appearance.

    Toby Keith's net worth last year was $320 million. If Keith goes all in, they could afford him quite easily, but the problem is how interested would Punk be.

    Jeff Jarrett's big announcement is today too.

    Sounds like a name from a fantasy Pro Wrestling game.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 23,089 ✭✭✭✭rovert


    Yeah this continues to come across as rinky dink. The press release wasn't proof read, the promotion name seems very dated and graphic design of the logo is ****e:

    Mediocre website, no attached talent, nothing about a TV deal or any kind of business model. But they do have t-shirts! They shouldn't have launched with this little info.

    Website has already crashed. Something that shouldn't happen if you knew what you were doing - dedicated servers are fairly cheap.


  • Registered Users Posts: 838 ✭✭✭A Rogue Hobo


    Looks like something straight out of the year 2000.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,188 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus


    That logo doesn't look great. Looks like something you would have seen in the late 90's.

    Website is terrible too :o So far it looks like the type of effort you would see from a local indy on a shoe-string budget.

    early 1990s

    Their website address is incorrect in their Twitter header:

    What gap in the market has he identified that he didn't try fill with the original incarnation of TNA?

    Also, 'Join the Force' is getting a cease & desist from Lucasfilms/Disney in 5, 4, 3, 2............
