Re: Championship Wrestling Federation: Thre Return of Shane


Wrestlescoop reports that CWF has reached out to a number of wrestlers released by WWE as well as number of superstars whose contracts have expired. Shane McMahon has pressured a number of people to sign with CWF for 1 year, assuring them that the schedule would be much lighter, thus guarenteeing the wrestler more money. A source within the company says that wrestler's salaries would be based on per appearance and where they are located on the card. Main Eventers are guarenteed $25,000 per TV appearance and $40,000 per PPV appearance while Mid Cards/Women/Tag Teams would make $20,000/$35,000 and Under Cards would make $15,000/$30,000.
Jesse Ventura is said to be very involved in the behind the scenes negotiations for CWF, and is working with Management and Talent to prepare a competitive salary and benefits/retirement package for the wrestlers. Ventura confirmed that he is definitely a part of the new wrestling promotion.
With only three weeks away from their first tour, tickets for all shows seem to be selling very well. The TD Gardens in Boston is said to be sitting at around 10,750 tickets sold. The other arenas are said to be around the same. There is a lot of media attention coming from both CWF and FOX as they prepare for the debut of their new show. The plan as reported is to keep the tour solely on Saturday Nights for the time being. When the company starts creating hype, CWF will go on the road 4 nights a week with wrestlers getting at least 3 days guaranteed off.
CWF has been in contact with Chris Jericho, Antonio Banks, Velvet Sky, and David Hart Smith about coming into the promotion. Other's have been contacted as well but officials within the company and keeping a tight lip over who has signed contracts with the company. All that is confirmed for the debut is that Tony Schiavone and Jesse Ventura have been brought in to run the broadcast booth. Venutra has also taken on a number of backstage rolls with the company.
