NWA-TNA 2002: The Face Of Professional Wrestling

Recommended Posts


Let's go back to the year 2001. Where the professional wrestling industry is recovering from the devastation that the World Wrestling Federation has caused by purchasing World Championship Wrestling (Vince's arch rival company on March 26th, 2001) & Extreme Championship Wrestling filing for bankruptcy (on April 4th, 2001). Guys like Goldberg, Sting, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, & etc. are sitting at home waiting for their AOL contracts to be up so that they can wrestle. But one man in particular was fired on-air by Vince McMahon and was humiliated. That man was Jeff Jarrett.


Now it's 2002. One day Jeff Jarrett, his father Jerry Jarrett, & Bob Ryder talk about their futures in the wrestling business after what had happened. Ryder in his credit stated that because Vince McMahon had purchased WCW and ECW filing for bankruptcy television stations thought that wrestling was bad for business and suggested a company that went straight to pay-per-view. The Jarretts create their own company called Total Nonstop Action Wrestling was added as a member to the prestigious National Wrestling Alliance. He also did something no one in the wrestling business have ever done before. And that is having weekly pay-per-views on Wednesday nights.
