from 1wrestling.com:

"On yesterday’s Magic 105 KMJX morning show here in Little Rock, AR, DJ Tommy Smith talked to Jimmy Hart. Hart had an announcement: He and Hulk Hogan were looking to start up something out of Universal Studios in Florida, and said they had been talking to Ted Dibiase, Sting, Buff Bagwell, and while Outlaw was screaming about the Million Dollar Man, Jimmy said, "Bret the Hitman Hart." He went on to mention TNA and having met up with Lex Luger and Sting on one of their broadcasts and also mentioned the work that Ted and all were doing in churches. He seemed really excited, and mentioned a couple of PPV opportunities. It was hard to pick all of the details out, but this is the first I've heard of Hulk doing anything since the TNA angle with Jeff Jarrett a few months back."

Good... because it's been, what, almost a year since the last time Jimmy Hart said that.

Vince must be losing sleep over this announcement.

My first thought is whether Hogan is in contract negotations with anyone at the moment? Or whether he's using the threat of setting up an indy to try an leverage a deal out of TNA, Japan, or WWE?

My second thought is, if this is legitimate, who cares? I mean seriously, at the very least these guys are a decade past their prime, and in some cases they're a decade past a decade past their prime.

Nostalgia is not a good long term business plan in the entertainment industry. No-one wants to see that cool rock band you grew up listening to return for a reunion tour as flabby old men. No-one wants to see the wrestlers you grew up watching as flabby old men. Might I listen to, or even buy, a Megadeth reunion album? Sure, why not. Might I watch Wrestlemania to see Hogan on top of the wrestling world one more time? Sure. Might I catch the movie version of some show I watched as a kid? Yeah, why not.

But - like the TV show - I'm quickly reminded of why I got sick of it. Same with the old rock band, same with the old wrestlers. And to do so regularly would be an embaressment.

Oh, and for the record, would NBC-Universal be backing this thing, or was it the part of Universal (theme parks and music) that got stuck with Vivendi?

I ask, because NBC has repeatedly stated that they aren't interested in sports entertainment, and "financial security" isn't something that comes to mind when I hear the name "Vivendi". Either way, "Universal" ain't as appealing as it was when he last pulled this stunt.

I think that it's probably Jimmy Hart just talking out of his ass ... Other than Hogan, Sting it still about the only one that could be a draw ...

My question/thought has always been why don't people like this just join up together (TNA, ROH) and try to form one organization? Is it mainly ego?

This means nothing. Now when Hogan tells Bubba the Love Sponge, then we'll all know it's the absolute truth. :rolleyes:
