Details on Freddie Prinze Jr.’s plans to start a wrestling promotion

During his podcast, actor and former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. talked about his plans to start a wrestling promotion…

“I plan on having this thing up and running in 18 months. That’s my plan. There’s a way for me to get it done sooner, but it requires me going to Australia for three months and leaving my family. I’m not a big fan of doing that regardless of how kind and respectful the studio is unless I was in a position where I had to. I love being a dad. It’s the reason I walked away from the business in the first place.”

“I doubt I’ll have a TV contract right away. It’s very difficult to maintain ownership and get a TV deal in the beginning like that. If you’re established, they can come in and license you or buy a portion of you, but you’ll still be in control. I think I want to start it as a two hour show. I want my storylines based in reality. I want to give the women and the men equal time on the roster. Then the goal is to bring the show to television and I want it to be a SAG show. What that means is I want it to be a union show, which would mean each and every single one of my wrestlers would be a member of the Screen Actors Guild and be entitled to all the insurance, medical benefits, and retirement plans that that entails.” (quotes courtesy of
