Ted Turner and TNA?

By THE Wrestling Times - According to a source I spoke to at AOL within the past few days. Ted Turner has purchase a majority stake in the company,Turner could seriously clean house, a source tells me "AOL and Panda Energyis a million dollar wrestling dream machine ".

Ted Turner helped reinvent interest in professional wrestling when he owned one of the most popular wrestling companies of the middle to late 1990s known as World Championship Wrestling (WCW). The Monday night show that it put on was the highest rated on cable and helped boost Turner's channels of TNT and WTBS.

Earlier this week news broke out on the 9QA Talk Wrestling Live online radio show that airs exclusively on TheWrestlingTimes.com Bobby Star, a wrestler and promoter who has worked closely with such names as Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash; and worked in the National Wrestling Alliance when it merged with World Championship Wrestling, revealed shocking news about the potential future of the wrestling industry. Star mentioned that he has heard stories of Ted Turner having interest in getting back into the wrestling business, but recently Turner has been considering it more seriously.

TheWrestlingTimes.com did not report on this initially because we felt it was a pipe dream for Ted Turner to get back into the wrestling industry after losing his company WCW. The reason we did not report on the story was not because Bobby Star is not credible source, but because the story seemed surreal. As someone who has lived through the 1990’s as a wrestling fan, I fully understand what Ted Turner in the wrestling business means.

Earlier this week it became not just a rumor, but evident that Ted Turner’s interest in getting back in wrestling has not just caught the attention of the Internet wrestling community, but also major movie theater companies such asScreenvision.


Headquartered in New York, N.Y., Screenvision is a national leader in cinema advertising, offering on-screen advertising, in-lobby promotions and integrated marketing programs to national, regional and local advertisers and providing comprehensive cinema advertising representation services for its theatrical exhibitor partners. The Screenvision cinema advertising network is comprised of over 15,000 screens in 2,400+ theatre locations across all 50 states and 94% of DMAs nationwide; delivering through more than 150 theatrical circuits, including 10 of the top 15 exhibitor companies.

News broke earlier last week about TNA’s Mexican America’s involvement in a Hispanic Day parade in New York with participation from Time Warner Cable, which is partially owned by Turner.

It seemed like Hogan had retirement plans booked for after his final wrestling match with Sting scheduled for October 16th, 2011 at Bound for Glory, however those plans have seemed to changed. When Hogan became aware of Turner’s potential financial endorsements, he rethought his retirement plans for the incentive to earn more money with Turner’s involvement. Why wouldn’t he reconsider hisretirement plans for the chance to make extra money? Who would turn down millions? This could easily be the biggest breaking news wrestling story of 2011.

Anybody believes this?

No, it's from the same douchebag that had an account for awhile before getting banned twice, 9QA or something. Completely fake.

Re: Ted Turner and TNA?

This would be great for wrestling as a whole if this happened as it would give TNA the cash injection it needed to properly compete with WWE, having said that this rumour smacks of bullshit
