-- We noted earlier this morning here on the website that Crossfire Entertainment announced during their Saturday night show that they are making the jump into national TV. The promotion revealed that their first taping is set for November 3rd in Nashville, Tennessee and will be shot in HD and 3D. While no details have been released on what network Crossfire Wrestling will air on, the word backstage before the show was that it would be a subsidiary network run by Paramount. That could end up being the premium cable channel EPIX or possibly a new network.
