This has been floating around for like two weeks now, it's not a big deal. Meltz had a newsbite in one of his updates about how a promoter had rung about booking them, and the charges they were asking were so ridiculously sky-high as to preclude anyone ever taking up their offer. Or something like that, anyways-the gist of it was that it's just a buncha BS.

I think the thing was that the AWA would promote it, if anybody could come up with $125,000 to pay Hogan and Austin.

Thank you for your irrelevant opinion.

I doubt the AWA could pull off this match. However, if by some miracle they come up with someone with the money to pay off both Austin and Hogan, they still would have a bunch of problems.
1) Egos: If this is a one time only situation, does anyone really believe Austin or Hogan would agree to job? Thus, a screwy finish would be necessary, but since its only 1 time only, a screw job wouldn't lead to anything.

2) Vincent Kennedy McMahon: If he sees this match being put on PPV, he counter-programs the hell out of it. A special SD vs. RAW World Title vs. World Title match going head to head could be a type of manuever to cause the buyrate to be weak.

3) Promotion: The internet would know about the match, but who else? Unless the money mark would pump in a ton of money, how would the general PPV purchasing public know about it? The WWF/E wouldn't allow spots during their programming (unless, of course, Vince is secretly paying for this and thus hoping to make profits for himself and not the company), and they would need to high volume purchase in order to get the attention of people for a fly by night organization.

"if by some miracle they come up with someone with the money to pay off both Austin and Hogan, they still would have a bunch of problems."

Like Hogan and Austin's lack of cooperation/interest/acknowledgement with/in/of the venture.

Yeah, you bet'cha, the freakin' AWA is gonna put on that match.

I think if that match ever took place, it'd be uncivilized to have it anywhere but WWE. Besides, WWE's nearest competitor, NWA-TNA, is considered by many to be bush-league, so you can imagine how people think of the AWA. (That is, the five people who know of its existence at all).

Even if this were realistic, I wouldn't want to see it. Both Austin and Hogan would seriously be risking their health and even their lives by participating in another match. Hell, Austin was fortunate he was able to participate in his WrestleMania XIX match against The Rock over a year ago. So maybe for my own selfish purposes I wouldn't mind seeing it, but Austin and Hogan have already risked their health enough times for the wrestling fans. At some point you've gotta think about quality of life.

It's just a ploy to get interested promoters to book his talent.

The promoter calls up, finds out there's NO CHANCE of him booking Austin/Hogan (which I doubt this Gagne guy could do, anyway) and has to settle for other workers for his low-budget show.

Pretty shady, but also quite ingenious.

About 5 years ago, I swung a deal with the WWE: The PR agency that I worked with would produce a WWE-branded tour in the host city of their monthly PPVs.
