Freddie Prinze Jr. is hoping that Bray Wyatt will be the leading man in his upcoming wrestling promotion.
Last month, Fightful Select reported that there was a standing offer from a "startup wrestling company" for Bray Wyatt to join. Though Wyatt's interest level was unknown, it was said to be a "serious" offer.
During the most recent episode of Wrestling with Freddie, the former WWE writer confirmed that he is still moving ahead with his company and that it was him who made the offer to Wyatt. He also revealed that he is close to having a TV deal and that a female wrestler that people know and love is in place.
"So I'm still moving forward. I have a finished script. I have two producers that are both interested in wanting to partner up with me on this. I don't have a TV deal in place, but I am very close to that. It's weird sharing dreams for two reasons; One, once you release the energy, it's out there and it's no longer within you. Then you have to find a new way to challenge yourself. Secondly, I hate announcing a deal before there is ink on paper because until there is ink on paper, your script is nothing, your federation is nothing, it's just an idea. I have a script in place that people have been incredibly receptive to and I am working on filling out a roster. I have a female in place that a lot of people know and love. Everybody knows that I love Bray. It was basically reported that I was the one that made the offer, and sure, I'll confirm that. I put out an offer there, and I think it's a creative offer. Financially, I wouldn't be able to compete with the WWE, but I've put other things in there that I think are important to Bray. I don't think I'm going to get it as the weeks go on, but we'll see. You never know. If I don't, then I'll shift gears again like I did the last time. It's a speed bump in the road and I will find the next person and rework the story to make it for that. But whoever my main guy is, that's who this is going to revolve around in the wrestling half of things," he said.
Earlier this year, Prinze Jr. shared that he hopes to have the company up and running within the next 18 months. You can learn more by clicking here.
