I'm back at doing what I like to do, BTB. For the first time, I will give a created federation a go. Let's see how this works out. (last thread: 11/18/2007)
11/07/2007: Looking at the state Sports Entertainment is currently in, Hulk Hogan, one of the pioneers of professional wrestling, one of the faces of professional wrestling, decides it’s time for a change, it’s time for a new breeze in sports entertainment. He makes a few calls to some of his good, but more importantly, wealthy friends and some important issues get discussed.
11/12/2007: Hulk Hogan organizes a press conference along with Sylvester Stallone and Greg Gagne. Hogan announces that starting very soon, Stallone, Gagne and himself will begin preparations for a business-project that is set to change the world of Sports Entertainment forever. Hogan claims that Stallone, Gagne and himself have enough money to start a new professional wrestling promotion big enough to compete with the likes of TNA© and WWE®.
Insider reports indicate that a new promotion, lead by Hulk Hogan, is shaping up rapidly and it’s looking bigger than the world of Sports entertainment first expected. It is said that talks with several networks over a TV deal have already started and that it won’t take long for a deal to pop up. Also, insiders in the two major Wrestling promotions, WWE and TNA, indicate that several talents are interested to see where this project goes and would not be reluctant to an interesting contract offer.
11/20/2007: Hulk Hogan, along with Sylvester Stallone and Greg Gagne, organizes another press conference. He announces with a lot of pride that Stallone, Gagne and himself have founded an all new company in Professional Wrestling, called Global Wrestling Enterprise®. He announces that a TV deal will soon be completed and that contract discussion with various talent throughout the United States will commence soon.
11/25/2007: Hulk Hogan is proud to announce that GWE has come to terms with the ESPN network over a Television deal. The deal contains of a 3 month contract for a weekly one-hour show. At first it would appear as though ESPN doesn’t have too much confidence in the new Wrestling promotion, but on the contrary, it was Hogan himself who demanded only a three month television deal. He said the company has the potential to grow out to one of the biggest companies in Sports Entertainment, and so it’s best to only have a three month contract, containing a weekly one-hour show. That way, when the company would indeed be a huge success, a two hour television deal for a longer period of time can easily be discussed.
11/29/2007: Hulk Hogan and Greg Gagne announce that talent contract discussions have started and that in fact two superstars have already signed a 3-month contract. Who those superstars are, however, isn’t clear as of this point. Meanwhile, Sylvester Stallone has announced that he will be putting full commitment into the GWE project and will put his producing/acting responsibilities on the shelf for now. He also announces that the GWE project will go into full throttle as of January 31st, which is a Thursday. This will in fact be the debut of the GWE show, which doesn’t have a name at this juncture. All this means that GWE will immediately go head to head with TNA Impact! at it’s first episode. What the effect of this will be is yet to be seen.
