I have been wondering this for some time, and now with Austin bailing out last night it only adds to my thoughts that it could happen. Does anybody believe something like what happened with Misawa and company leaving All Japan to start NOAH. I know the situations are different with contracts and all, but if Austin went to USA or Timer Warner with a group of guys who quit the WWE and are looking to start a rival group. The problem all start-ups have are getting name guys, but this would be the solution to that.

I'd really like to hear other people's thoughts on this.

I think that a lot of people jump to a lot of conclusions when they hear things like this (Austin walking out). I think that we first need to wait and see if either the WWE or Austin makes any sort of a public statement. At the very least, we need to see if the WWE will write something into the storyline as to why Austin is absent.

There is a lot more that goes on behind those curtains than anyone could possibly imagine, and let me just remind everyone that no matter where you may get your information from, we have to remember that many of these "insiders" are not even close to that. If you need further proof of that, have you ever noticed that whenever a truly big surprise happens, the internet "insiders" ususally don't know a thing about it? Just seems a little odd to me.

As for Austin creating a group of rivals and starting his own promotion, I don't think there is a chance in hell of anything like that ever happening. Let's not forget her that even if Austin is making, let's say just for the sake of argument 50 million dollars/year, that means that he is making about 1/20th of the money that McMahon and Company are pulling in. There's no way that he or anyone else, really, can compete with that sort of revenue, promotion, and overall dominance of the industry.

I feel that I should point out that Trineo was saying that if a few top draws were sick of working for Vince and could get out of their contracts at the same time, they could go to a cable network and say "If you bankrolled us, we would bring you ratings." Not that they would bankroll it themselves.

No individual in the wrestling business can compete with Vince, but a media conglomerate certainly could, if someone convinced them that it would make them a lot of money.

Which isn't to say that I think this would be a great idea, but it isn't completely impossible. However, I think it would fail in the long run, for the same reason WCW did. If business goes through a downturn, the backer will eventually write off its losses. Vince OTOH, is in it for ego, not money, and will always fight through the tough times and look ahead to the next boom.

Even if I thought that was happening, which I don't, I seriously doubt anyone could convince a major media comglomerate that there would be a lot of money in a new wrestling startup these days. I mean, two of the big three folded within the past couple years alone.
