Re: NWA:TNA 2002- Tradition Meets Cutting Edge
News Wrestling Arsenal- The hottest news, rumors, and spoilers throughout the net!
~As the debut of National Wrestling Alliance: Total Nonstop Action approaches, the Jarrett family is currently searching for ‘big’ names to be apart of the first show. So far, Buff Bagwell, Disco Inferno, Dusty Rhodes, Ken Shamrock, Konnan, Lex Luger, Rick Steiner, The Road Warriors, Scott Hall, Scott Steiner, Terry Funk, and Vader have been approached to appear on the debut show. Not all of those names are confirmed for the show, but then again, other names such as Jake Roberts, Jesse Ventura, Roddy Piper, Sid, Ultimate Warrior, and Vince freaking Russo have also been rumored. As of right now, it seems like the NWA:TNA debut could either be a good success, or one giant flop.
~While some of the names listed above were not confirmed, we can now confirm a few of the names for the show. Those names are Buff Bagwell, Dusty Rhodes, Ken Shamrock, and Scott Hall. Other names confirmed for the TNA debut include Barry Windham, Brian Lawler, Steve Corino, and The Wall. TNA is also promoting something called the X-Division, which seems to be a cruiserweight division, as names such as AJ Styles, Amazing Red, Christopher Daniels, Jerry Lynn, Low-Ki, and other various talented independent cruiserweight names have been included in this ‘X-Division’. Whatever it is, we will find out on June 19!
~Apparently, Jerry Jarrett plans on honoring some of the former NWA legends at the debut show for TNA. A ‘Legend’s Ceremony’ will take place at the show, and former NWA stars such as ‘Bullet’ Bob Armstrong, Dory Funk Jr., ‘The American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes, Harley Race, Ole Anderson, Ricky Steamboat, Terry Funk, and Tully Blanchard. What kind of role these ‘Legends’ will play in the future of NWA:TNA is unknown, but the Jarrett’s felt it right that they pay respect to the men who helped make the NWA name mean something in the 80s.
~Erm, order the first NWA:TNA PPV, Wednesday, June 19!
