ROH - Spike TV rumor killer, Great Muta, GFW TV deal, Kevin Nash & big stars at indy event
- As noted earlier, The Great Muta was a special guest at last Saturday's !BANG! TV Sound Stage in Ocala, Florida. Muta was there to observe !BANG! TV wrestlers perform tryouts for his company in Japan and to do a special interview for NTV Japan with Funking Conservatory Wrestling Coach, Dory Funk Jr. You can check out video from Muta's visit above, and you can get more details on the wrestling school by calling (352) 895-4658 or by visiting dory-funk.com.
- There was a rumor going around this week that Ring Of Honor was negotiating with Spike TV for televised specials, which is not true. Spike TV has no idea where this came from. A source noted that it was ROH that leaked the story to mask some of the budget issues that the company is dealing with.
- Dave Meltzer addressed the ROH rumors on the F4WOnline forum, stating to not "read much into the ROH Spike stuff." Meltzer added that "ROH is pitching places but right now nobody is catching."
"Jeff Jarrett being 15 months into the game with no TV deal tells you how much the TV industry is into paying for wrestling these days," Meltzer wrote. "Tho I smell smoke from Jeff's side."
- Kevin Nash, John Morrison, Chavo Guerrero, Gail Kim, Madison Rayne, Brodus Clay and Jinder Mahal are all scheduled to appear at Imperial Wrestling Revolution's Day of Destiny on May 2nd in Ardmore, Oklahoma at 6 p.m. You can get more details here.
