Meltzer, and Torch have confirmed the rumors of this new promotion. There was minor gossip on the wrestling 900 numbers last week (yes, they still exist) of 50 Cent doing an angle with New Jack at the first taping.
Here's the pwtorch.com story:

"MTV and Big Vision Entertainment have developed a project which could become the first original wrestling programming exclusive to MTV which MTV will have a hand in producing. MTV had previously been the home of Sunday Night Heat, but the show was produced by WWE.

They are not releasing details of the project publicly yet, other than to say a pilot taping will take place in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday, Feb. 9. Wrestlers taking part include Vampiro, Justin Credible, Sean Waltman, New Jack, Jack Evans, Matt Sydal, and Teddy Hart. The taping is free, but the venue will have very limited seating. Some seats will be made available next week through various wrestling media outlets.

Because it's being produced for MTV, the show will incorporate music and the producers are planning to create a dramatically different look and presentation compared to any wrestling product before. The name of the program and the promotion are not known at this time."

PWTorch should know. A quick look at the Big Vision Entertainment reveals they're the ones marketing the Torch's Ultimate Insiders DVDs.

YAY for Matt Sydal, among others. Hope good people get good paydays for however long it lasts; parts of this crew appear to be chosen purposefully for maximum possible insanity (probably more to do with people who aren't on TV elsewhere), buty even if people were on their best behavior, I can't imagine this being more than a short term deal. This looks to be BVE's biggest project yet and MTV doesn't stick wtih a series too long regardless.

You could still have some fun over a short time. Hoping they do.

Hopefully they'll bring someone in who can keep Teddy Hart in line. How many people can he piss off before the business finally just gives up on him?

I immediately thought the exact same thing. Unless the show gets a huge buzz like "The Osbournes" or "Punk'd", Mtv will probably just do one season.

I think all of you are missing the boat on this project by ignoring something very important...

50 Cent is going to do an angle with New Jack

Which means that the world will finally be rid of 50 Cent!

Mass Transit him, New Jack!!!!

Teddy Hart is a cancer upon which this business could crumble. MTV better get someone in there who actually knows what they are doing, or else that lockerroom looks like its going to be a mess

I need to get tickets to this taping for the craziness and to see if things fall apart with New Jack going nuts or maybe Teddy throwing a diva fit. He caused a commotion and almost started a real brawl among wrestlers at an indy show here last week. He did a moonsault off a basketball hoop, messed up his knee, and later outside the venue bitched and whined how Pro Wrestling War (the promotion) have screwed up his chances with WWE for his upcoming tryout or whatever.

gotta love Teddy.

Human Tornado is gonna be in a dark match for the tapings as a tryout for a contract if the show gets picked up for a whole season.

Well, I hope it gets a full season, just because I think more wrestling on TV is a good thing. I like Vampiro, Sydal, and Evans. But is this not a conflict of interest for Waltman if the show gets picked up? Since he is a part of the TNA roster. Or is it not since Spike and MTV are both part of Viacom?

Even if Teddy lands a gig with WWE, he won't be there for long with an attitude like that. Just like Juventud.

How quickly they forget WCW's appearance on MTV on Memorial Day weekend '98 from a rainy Jersey shoreline, with We Want Flair protest chants being done for most of the show.

Isn't UPN also part Viacom? If so, then now they have WWE (Smackdown), TNA, and now this new promotion. Talk about "conflict of interest".

Just in the sense that he's a worker on one roster that's now on mainstream television and now apparently he could be the worker on another wrestling roster that could be on mainstream television. Or does Spike TV and MTV both being part of Viacom negate that or what?

FWIW, Viacom and CBS split. TV wise, CBS Entertainment owns that network and UPN, while Viacom has all the cable networks.

Based on his limited appearances, I'd assume Waltman's on a per-night deal, not a contract which would restrict his appearances elsewhere.

After Final Resolution, I read (probably on 411, somewhere) that TNA had no plans to use Waltman in the future -- for whatever that's worth and didn't they say that before? -- but it probably means that he's not under contract.

If 9 bullets can't kill him I doubt a garbage wrestler will.

This sounds to have all the staying power of XPW, Hogan's promotion, or whatever the hell that thing in Australia was.

MTV usually doesn't like shows that they can't re-run. Will we get 20 showings a week of each episode?
