Freddie Prinze Jr. Gives Update On His Wrestling Promotion



During the most recent edition of his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast, Freddie Prinze Jr. offered an update on his promotion that he first announced in December 2021. The former WWE creative team member said,

“I am actively going on with my own personal wrestling federation. It’s something I announced about two years ago that I was going to try and do this. I am now pitching. I pitched to one place and it’s still actively out there. They haven’t said yes, they haven’t said no. The fact that they are still talking about it is a good thing. If they say no, I’ll let you guys know. I’ll share all the good and bad, I want to share the whole process. The only thing I can’t share is the name of the places I’ve gone. I’m not trying to have people hate on them if they say no.”

He continued, “I had another pitch at a place that likes wrestling. Friendly faces. They had seen what we shot and asked if they could have the meeting, which is always a good thing. The last place we asked for the meeting, showed them what we shot, and then answered questions. They came in hot with questions, but they were all real good. ‘What’s your vision?’ ‘How is it going to be different from this?’ ‘What kind of matches do you want to have?’ ‘We saw GCW, are you going to have deathmatches?’ They had done some research. The meeting was much longer, they were very passionate about it. I’ve only pitched to one other place, but this pitch went way better based on their reaction to the materials and to my producers and me. They basically said everything but yes. I think I have a home. If they say no, I’ll let you guys know and I’ll ask you to cry me a river, but I feel confident about this. I felt confident about the first one, but as time goes on, even though it’s not a no, it makes me feel like it’s a no. These people have said everything but the word yes. I feel crazy confident about this. I have four more places to go.”

Freddie Prinze Jr. added that his promotion won’t be like AEW or WWE. He stated,

“I can’t give away anything before I sell it, but I will say the look of it will be much different than AEW and WWE. There was a show called Lucha Underground, which utilized space really well, which had a cool look to it. I always liked that. I’m not saying I’m going to do that, but I would say I’m somewhere in-between what WWE and AEW are doing and somewhere in-between Lucha Underground, somewhere in the middle is where I’m at. It’s going to be the presentation of it that I hope makes it stand out and makes people feel compelled to watch and see what the hell we’re going to do and how the wrestlers use the environment in this promotion. I don’t know where our home is going to be, but I think we’re going to have a home.”
