As noted earlier here on the website, Jeff Jarrett’s new wrestling promotion will reportedly start in January of 2015 and CMT will be their new home for cable TV. The CMT rumors come from Toby Keith, rumored to be part of the financial backing of the company, as he has close ties with the network.
There are rumors in TNA that Kurt Angle could be the lead star of Jarrett’s new promotion. Despite Jarrett and Angle having issues in the past, the two are reportedly on good terms now as we reported. TNA contracts like with Hulk Hogan, Sting, and AJ Styles, many feel that Angle staying without taking a dramatic pay cut is unlikely.
Jarrett’s promotion would also reportedly introduce a lot of new faces to the US scene. Jarrett has been talent scouting at indy wrestling events and looking at videos of talents people are recommending to him, including a great deal of international talent. In addition, the promotion would reportedly open with a reality show for Jeff and Karen Jarrett, which would be a vehicle designed to help launch the promotion a few months later.
