The TNA/WWE War "First Shots"....
« on: 4 August 2008, 11:35:00 PM »
..Were actually fired by the WWE.

Quote
From discovering that a key man who handled the PPV end of the business was on the payroll of the company that handles WWE PPV's at the same time, to wrestlers that had verbally committed to NWATNA suddenly getting attractive contracts with WWE, the venture has survived.

So yes next time you say you wish TNA or one of it's "Bitter Superstars" would stop trying to trash talk about the WWE, know who started it.

That's PPV & payroll, not talent (which TNA would have none of, if not for WWE).

Hey! You already paid the price; The believability of what you posted, (I'd bet) full well knowing it was no more than a biased standpoint/opinion.

So wait a minute, Jerry Jarrett stating (without source), that guys who hadn't committed to contracts with TNA in writing getting offers from WWE (without giving any names or proof of that), is proof that WWE fired the "first shots" in an invisible war with TNA?

Logic Much? :huh
