Re: How To Rebuild Pro Wrestling... From Scratch
Thanks for the comments, everybody! I really appriciate it and will try to return them all as soon as I can. Just so you know, the first three episodes have been written and I'll probably post the first one on Saturday, to give you more time...
::!News From The Online World of Wrestling!::
~Coming off the heels of one of the biggest business transactions in pro wrestling history, OWW has all the fallout.
~Teddy Hart, T.J. Wilson, D.H. Smith and Mike Adamle have all signed on to the WWS roster. Adamle, a former sports announcer, will serve as color commentator on Shootout for a trial term.
~Dusty Rhodes, Sgt. Slaughter, Dusty Rhodes, Arn Anderson, Kevin Dunn, Vince Russo, CEO Tony Schiavone, and chairman Gene Okerlund are already pleased with what will happen in their new promotion. "Our fans have supported WWE and WWF for so many years," said CEO Tony Schiavone. “We're confident they'll support us as we try to bring a new twist on sports entertainment." Vince Russo, formerly the head writer of TNA, already has some fresh ideas for the superstars. "I'm really gonna mix things up," said Russo. "You'll see."
~TNA president Jeff Jarrett wishes the best in the future for the company's new board of directors. "They know what they're doing," said Jarrett in a press conference yesterday. "They've been in this business longer than I have. However, wrestling has reached a new age and it will be interesting to see how these legends compete against TNA's new-fashioned style of wrestling."
~The management has reached a 1-year deal with USA network, with a 3-year option after that.
~Gainsville, Florida is already making plans and preparing for Wrestlemania XXIV in March 2008. "We're very excited," said Pegeen Abrahan, mayor of Gainsville. The University of Florida, the owner of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, is also making plans to help the community, and promote the event at the same time. They're making dates for some of the wrestlers to make appearances at the school to teach middle schoolers and high schoolers the importance of reading.
