Re: Jeff Jarrett & Jim Ross involved with new wrestling promotion?

I am totally ready for this, and I honestly hope that they take down TNA (shouldn't be hard, especially if WWE would end up getting Smackdown on Spike). There is so much talent out there that they can use, and I can see them making their own stars as well.

Interesting wrestling and country music together.

Re: Jeff Jarrett & Jim Ross involved with new wrestling promotion?

First,SEABS LET ME DREAM!

Secondly, I've kinda been hoping for at least another national size company. Seems like terrible timing if it were to be a thing this year with AAA:USA I believe to be on the way this year. Certainly enough talent to make up another TNA level promotion but enough to make up TWO would be a bit of a stretch in my eyes.

Also am I the only one who would mark out huge for a Jim Ross/Don West commentary team?
Why do you think JJ has learned what works and what doesn't? This is the dude that picked Russo over his own father.

Re: Jeff Jarrett & Jim Ross involved with new wrestling promotion?

If true, they've certainly got one viewer in me. I love good ole JR, Jarrett's always been a favorite of mine, and Toby Keith is just awesome, man. They definitely could do it, and they could outdo TNA, I think pretty easily. Jarrett had TNA goin good for a while, least when I used to watch regularly. Plus, Toby Keith is a genuine wrestlin fan. Then you have JR who knows his wrestling. I don't think they'll just go straight for the country thing, but it'll probably have a southern vibe to it. I'm excited if this works out!

Re: Jeff Jarrett & Jim Ross involved with new wrestling promotion?

Jim Ross is lying, I'll say it again: Ross/Keith are next Bischoff/Russo. Hopefully much, much better though. It's stupid of me to get my hopes up so I can only dream that real competition is coming.

WWE has seemed to morph into a TITAN in the last couple of years though so I doubt it, unless there's a few big signings right off the bat.

Tell you what ...

I'd be happy with a plain old artistically successful promotion.

I'm not hoping that anyone comes along and starts the revolution. I'm not hoping that the WWE becomes the number two promotion in the world, and then they have to go ahead and get better because they no longer have a choice.

I'm just hoping that something happens that wrestling gets better.

Personally? I think that's already happening on a small scale. But bigger companies would be nice.

Re: Jeff Jarrett & Jim Ross involved with new wrestling promotion?

Nothing is touching WWE as long as they don't have something go on behind the scenes so crazy that their stock plummets. Don't see that happening.

TNA on the other hand is #2 in America by default at this point because they have a TV deal. That's where competition will occur if this is anything more than Konnan just saying things(it probably isn't but damn it I'm gonna live in my dream world). If another promotion can get that kind of deal then they'll be in a good spot to offer some competition in that area. Of course they'll need a solid roster but shouldn't be too difficult with all that is out there. Would be nice to see another promotion come in to simply shake things up for bit.

Re: Jeff Jarrett & Jim Ross involved with new wrestling promotion?

JR blog: "FYI...I have not had any conversations with anyone about starting a 'new' pro wrestling promotion. I have not spoken to Jeff Jarrett since he left WWE on a day that doesn't rank too high on my list of fun days at work.

Some websites are irresponsibly running with the story that just because Toby Keith and I are friends and fellow Okies who both follow the Sooners that I'm about to do business with Toby and Jeff Jarrett which isn't true. Toby and I had dinner at the Sugar Bowl, he's a wrestling fan from the old days and, a helluva entrepreneur with deep pockets. Nonetheless the reason that we were there was to support our Sooners vs. Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and not talk about pro wrestling.

We did talk the wrestling biz some but that's not unusual for me in any conversation after a 40 year career within the genre. We also talked country music, business investments, OU football and we spent the afternoon together with ESPN's Brad Nessler who's another wrestling fan. Yes, TNA came up a time or two but that was really a non issue in our conversations.

I am not motivated to re-engage in the wrestling business on a daily basis and it would take a mighty healthy offer to consider such. The politics and paranoia that go along with today's rasslin business isn't healthy for me to be around on a full time basis especially at this stage of my life.

Plus, I have a specific philosophy regarding how the business should be presented that doesn't seem to be in fashion these days.

My name has been linked to doing some voice overs for a couple of international Wresting promotions who air their product, including PPV's and DVD's' in North America, but that 's not something that we've pursued just yet. We'll see what the future holds on that one. Sounds interesting though."

THEREVOLUTION
