Here's the latest:

There is no recent news. The promotion is on the verge of announcing its abortion.

Nobody knows, I think they were mad at the internet sites spilling the beans before they even got a chance to come up with a plan. So they went on hiatus.

I read somewhere that their financial backing went away so now the promotion is pretty much dead in the water. Kind of a shame because it sounded like there were going to be some pretty talented performers jumping to WWP.

Looks like they have pretty much ended before they started.

To Invest in the wrestling business in todays market is an extremley big risk, so I doubt the "backers" wanted to go ahead with the whole thing.

They most likely opted out knowing that WWP wasn't gonna work, especially since they hardly had any major trustworthy contacts in the wrestling business.

If the backers indeed wanted to invest, then they would be better of investing in WWE (that's if they still are a PLC, although McMahon would never sell of his major stake), TNA or even a ROH-WSL merger to eventually create WWP.

Starting a company from scratch in todays economic climate is a no no.

Can't say I'm surprised that this company doesn't look like it will ever come to life.
