Re: So, when TNT started accepting wrestling again
The sale of WCW stinks to high heaven as industrial sabotage. Warner refused an offer of 0.5 billion in the summer of 2000 from FX as too low. Then less than a year later, McMahon picks it up for 2.4 million, without dead weight contracts.
Because of the contracts alone, selling WCW for less than 15 million was highly suspicious.
People keeping citing the 'no TV deal' argument. Bullshit, the WCW IP in 2001, TV or not, is worth at least 10 times what it was purchased for. To this fucking day sealed WCW DVDs are quite expensive.
A lot of people having discussed this including Bob Ryder and Kevin Sullivan. Listen to Sullivan outright say it in the 'Timeline of WCW' shoot - 'someone cut a deal'. Kellner, Snyder, Siegel and McMahon conspired to do it. McMahon paid 2.4 million on the books, but off the books there had to be a massive crooked payoff to at least Kellner and Siegel, because they're not going to risk those shenanigans with a public company.
