My buddy told me about Jarrett's new venture yesterday at lunch and I didnt have much hope in it then, even less now.
Yes. I think I've used up my quota of cynicism and doomsday predictions for the day, but I didn't have a lot of hope for this before and less so when this is this how they decided to make their first impression. They're under capitalized in either money or sense.

Technically, no, they quickly ran out of money and that experiment would've ended after 13 weeks had they not found the Carters. What Jeff did best was find someone willing to foot the bill thru the bad times and the really bad times.
(No mention of Toby Keith or Toby Keith like people here, but they're also not spending any money yet.)
If NWA-TNA was indy level bad, they wouldn't have been attractive to the Carters. He and his dad knew how to book, brought in young, exciting talent and put on decent shows. It wasn't WWE level entertainment, but it was enough to get a strong foothold in the industry.
I don't think the big money supposedly behind this will be shy with the checkbooks.

I can't imagine Smackdown's ratings for NY will be spectacular this week, seeing as how they were preempted by the Yankees/Whitesox game on UPN. The show aired on Saturday evening, at the exact same time as SNME. Whoops!
