Freddie Prinze Jr. Provides Update On Wrestling Promotion He Has Been Trying To Start

Former WWE creative writer Freddie Prinze Jr. recently spoke on his podcast, “Wrestling with Freddie,” about a variety of professional wrestling topics including the wrestling promotion he has been trying to start.

Prinze Jr. said, “I am actively going out with my own personal wrestling federation. This was a thing that I announced about two years ago, a year and a half ago, on the Ariel Helwani show that I was going to try to do this. I’m at the point now where we’re out pitching. I pitched one place. It’s still actively out there. They haven’t said yes. They haven’t said no. The fact that they’re still talking about it is a good thing. If they say no, I’ll let you guys know. I’ll share all the good and the bad. I want to share this whole process with you.”

“The only thing I can’t share right now are the names of the places I’ve gone. I’m not trying to have people hate on them if they say no. I had another pitch this morning just before the show started at a place that likes wrestling. Friendly faces. They had seen what we had shot and asked if they could have the meeting which is always a good thing. The last place we asked for the meeting and then showed them what we shot and then answered questions. They came in hot with questions, but they were all real, real good. ‘What’s your vision? How’s it going to be different from this? How’s it going to be different from that? What kind of matches do you want to have? We saw a GCW match. Are you going to have death (matches)?’ Things like that. They had actually done some research. The meeting was much longer. They were very passionate about it. I’ve only pitched to one other place, but this pitch went way, way better based on their reaction to the materials and to us, my two producers and me. They basically said everything but yes, so I think I have a home. If they say no, I will let you guys know and I’ll ask you to cry me a river, but I really feel confident about this. I felt confident about the first one, but as time goes on, even though that’s not a no, it makes me feel like it’s gonna be a no. These people have said everything but the word yes, so I feel crazy confident about this. I’ve got four more places to go. I’ll let you guys know about all of them.”
