Turner Considering Starting New Promotion; Has Eyes On Austin & Goldberg

Rumors have come up that Ted Turner is once again considering a return to pro-wrestling. Turner used wrestling to put TBS on the map some 25 years ago and has always had great loyalty to it.

When the AOL-Time Warner merger took place, Turner signed many documents including one that said he would not compete with AOL-Time Warner in pro-wrestling. That agreement is apparently set to end in March of 2005.

AOL-Time Warner also has a five year no compete clause with WWE that ends in March of 2006. After that, AOL-Time Warner networks such as TBS could air a competing pro-wrestling show.

Paul Kellner, one of the main men against pro-wrestling during the times of the AOL-Time Warner merger, is no longer with the company.

Some believe that Turner has already started to lay the groundwork for the new promotion, including sending out feelers to both Steve Austin and Goldberg. The idea is that Austin and Goldberg have enough power to create major interest in a #2 promotion, just like Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, etc. did for WCW years ago.

Well, it's always good to see possible competition for the WWE, But Basing it on Austin and goldberg may be a huge mistake. Like the WWE Has, They need Fresh talent in order to stay afloat, at least that's what i think.

think about it, If this goes through, Then in 2006, The Flames that were supposedly extinguished from the Monday night wars would be rekindled. That is definitely a good thing, because we can finally see good stuff from WWE and the New Turner Brand.

I just hope (that if this rumour is true and Turner makes another wrestling program)that he dosen't make the same mistake like he did in WCW and that is not pushing new stars and staying with the old ones. It will be a good idea to have this start off with Goldberg and Austin but there going to have to push new stars. WCW's problem was not pushing talent, they always kept Hogan and Nash as champ, while they had talent like Jericho and Saturn who could of become champ, only Goldberg got a break throughout that whole time. So I just hope they don't make the same mistake twice.

There is more than meets the eye. Remeber now that if this is true SCSA and Goldberg have pretty much a bottomless checkbook and also Stone Cold played a mayor role on the Monday Night Wars. I'm sure he learned some new tricks and he wouldn't be afraid of implanting them.

And about WWE making a better product I sincerely don't think so. Vince will not budge thats a fact. He is loosing money like hell now what makes anyone here think he will change his ways.

I think Turner and the Jarretts hook up. The Jarrets have the TV deal now, but need more financial backing and Turner wants back in the game.
