Wow, it looks like their publicity stunt paid off!!!

Nashville, TN (November 12, 2004) TNA Entertainment, LLC announced today that it has signed Cookie Monster to an exclusive contract, where he will appear on Total Nonstop Action Wrestling pay-per-events.

"We are thrilled to add Cookie Monster to our growing roster," said Frank Romano, COO TNA Entertainment. "Not only is he a household name, but he adds a sense of class and dignity our brand of professional wrestling monthly on pay-per-view. Also, he works extremely cheap."

"COOKIES!!!" said the furry blue monster at a press conference announcing his involvement with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. "Me love cookies. Um num num!"

The monster was attracted to the company after Total Nonstop Action superstars Tracy and Abyss offered him complimentary cookies. Vince Russo, who recently resigned as TNA's Director of Authority, is credited with signing the talent.

"Let's face it -- the guy draws money." said Russo. "He doesn't even have to get in the ring to be effective. He can do commentary. He can manage. He can help teach the referees to count to three."

Cookie Monster hasn't decided what his role will be on Total Nonstop Action.

"Me not going to job to Jarrett," said Cookie Monster, cookie crumbs flying everywhere. "Me have it in creative control clause. Um num num!"

According to Total Nonstop Action ring announcer and flunky Jeremy Borash, Cookie may form a tag team with Grover to go after tag team champions 3 Live Kru.

DIRECTV is the nation's leading digital multichannel television service provider with more than 13 million customers.

The alternative for the true wrestling fan, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling prides itself on delivering quality, family programming that is clean, innovative, cutting edge and with the high-risk, high-flying athleticism that TNA Wrestling is known for. Total Nonstop Action Wrestling iMPACT! airs Fridays at 3:00 p.m. on FSN (check local listings). TNA Xplosion is a syndicated program (check local listings). TNA Wrestling pay-per-views are available on iN DEMAND, DISH Network, DIRECTV, TVN, Viewers Choice Canada, Bell ExpressVu and Shaw Communications.

And here I was thinking that he was still in the dregs of a WWFE development deal, but I guess after Shane tried to hype his arrival in May 2001 as a member of The Alliance and the part of his speech (during Angle's medal ceremony, you may recall) didn't get over he was just floating around the indies since then. In fact his whole arrival got scrapped after he was supposed to origianlly be given the role of Sara Undertaker's stalker that ended up going to DDP.

And here TNA is trying to dispel the notion that they're not a bunch of WWE washouts. Silly us.

I can't believe this is as funny to me as it is. Huh.

Concerning the press release, does Russo approve of Cookie Monster, since he obviously gives into the sin of gluttony on a daily basis? Shame, shame.

In an update on this breaking story, sources close to the booking committee for TNA claim that Cookie Monster will make his TNA PPV debut on the December card, wrestling Oscar the Grouch in a "Sesame Street Fight" match.

A locker room source who wished to remain anonymous said that Oscar was unhappy with his position on the card with Cookie Monster.

More updates on this story as they develop.

TNA has issued an apology http://www.tnawrestling.com/news/2004/11/12/news2.html

I think this proves that they are delusional (yes, i know it's supposed to be a parody, but still).

I think it's just sad that Vince doesn't have a sense of humor anymore.

If this was backin the day during the hight of the WCW/WWF War a Billionaire Ted Promo would be in development right now as I type this.

That was just... so well done. Seriously. Understated and hilarious at the same time. Almost makes me want to take back the Cookie Monster comment.

Is it a safe bet that this "incident" is as close as Shane Douglas will come to being around the WWF/E again in any of our lifetimes?
And, Cookie Monster on his worst day would make a much better NWA Champ than Jeff Jarrett on his best day. Of course, that could lead to the InVasion angle where Waldorf and Statsny take the tag titles.

Well, it's a lot easier to do those things when you're the number two rasslin company in the country (i.e. TNA in 2004 or WWF in 1996). If you're the leader, and you stick it to the little guy it can only come back to bite you in the ass (I think we all remember Eric Bischoff's infamous comments about "when Tuesday mornings were fun").

Maybe Vince was threatened that the sight of a 300 pound masked monster handing out balloons was way funnier than anything creative has come up with in years....

Hey, Vince....keep your friends close and your enemies closer!

Funny stuff, though Funny how most of those involved in this were former WWF/E talent. James, Killings, Douglas, Konnan...all three worked for Vince at one time or another.

Well as far as Vince is concerned, TNA doesn't even exist. And mentioning them on WWE TV probably does more harm than good. How many marks are gonna go, "Oh, that's what happened to that guy. Maybe I should check that out." There'd be some, I think.

Substitute "Batista" for "Abyss" and you have a Matt Hocking Raw Satire.

The irony in all this is that one of these days, when no one expects it, Abyss just might wind up working for WWE. And I doubt Vince will forget this episode.

With Russo still around, I can't believe no one has said "Well, at least he'd made a better world champion than David Arquette."
