National Wrestling Federation: The Investment

12/7/12 Steve Burke and Bob Greenblatt of NBC have finalized a deal on creating a wrestling promotion to be a flagship show of theirs in an attempt to recreate the wrestling success of the 90s. As WWE has been in decline for years and iMPACT! Wrestling not proposing a major threat to them yet, they see this as the perfect time to capitalize. With little insight on the business they have decided to hire several wrestling minds to work with them. As the deal finished NBC has now become owners of the National Wrestling Federation. NBC owning the product has given them nearly unlimited financial backing to create the next big product, heading off into the new year. They have also made sure to use that financial budget to buy the best talent possible. Some of that money was indeed used to trade mark the product's name formerly used in a small time company they purchased because they decided it would fit their network.
