RyanR93WKU Posted May 21, 2018 Share Posted May 21, 2018 Smoky Mountain Wrestling is back and it started in May of 2018 when Jim Cornette started to miss old time wrestling. He thought about buying OVW but he didn't want to shell out the money. He decided to use profits from the Jim Cornette Experience to restart the Smoky Mountain Wrestling. WWE gave him his blessing to use the name since he originally created it. He put in $2,500 of his own money and let fans all over the world donate some money over the course of May and June to a total of 13,000. He couldn't find any networks to put it on and have decided to go against putting it on digital. He wants this to be old school so he has put together a pool of 60+ wrestlers that said they would work his events. They said there will be no titles until they get a television deal and want to put out a product to start a buzz. This company will remain in Kentucky until Cornette feels like they could move into other states. The first event will be taking place the last Saturday of June. They hope to run a show every Saturday at the end of the month until they get a good TV deal in the US. These shows will only be 1 hour and feature 2 to 4 matches and a few segments to cut down on costs. Hope you all enjoy this. I plan on covering several years with this as I hope to take this from Local to National. Right now we are currently 54th in the world. I will give financial and ranking updates monthly.
