TNA Launching a New Brand in India

TNA is planning to launch a new international brand by the end of 2011 that is being spearheaded by Jeff Jarrett. The new brand will be a weekly series in India that won't be using the TNA brand name.

The current plan is to tape for a week in December with another week of tapings scheduled for January of 2012.

TNA has hired former WWE writer Dave Lagana to work on the new project. The new project for the Indian market will be separate from TNA, creatively and as far as the roster goes. Former TNA writer Dutch Mantel will be joining Jarrett and Lagana on the creative team.

Regarding the roster, former referee Rudy Charles has been involved in developing the roster. No word yet on what talents have been signed but word is that they've put together a roster of former WWE, TNA and ECW stars, as well as independent wrestlers.

We noted a few weeks back that BG James, who is now working with WWE, went to India with Sonjay Dutt to scout talents. Dutt will reportedly be a major part of the new brand. James and Dutt saw over 100 Indian talents tryout and of those, ten were chosen and will be brought to the US to work on the new show.

The new project will air in India on The Colors Network, known in the US as Aapka Colors. Colors is carried by some providers in the US including Dish Network.

Notes from a Hulk Hogan radio appearence

Hulk Hogan taped an appearance with The Busted Open show yesterday that will air today at 3pm on Sirius Radio. Here are some interesting quotes:

Robert Roode: “Nah, he’s not ready. He’s not the next guy. Ya’ know, they might think he is. Dixie Carter might think he is. The whole world might think he is. He’s not the next guy. If I had to bet money on anybody and really be serious about betting money on anybody, I’d say Jeff Hardy is the next guy if he keeps his act together. Um, that’s what you gotta to have, man. This is much more than being a wrestler, this is crossing barriers, medias, ya’ know media barriers, and, and entertainment barriers of all kind. Getting your character down verbally has 90% to do with getting over. I just have a very strong feeling Kurt Angle’s going to clean his clock performance wise, and carry the match, and basically remains the champion. He’s training for the Olympics. He’s had some up and down moments, and I think this is not gonna be a down moment for Kurt Angle, so I’m betting that farm on him."

Wrestling Sting at Bound for Glory: "The main event is Kurt Angle, thank god! And uh, Bobby Roode stepped up, and he’s definitely become a presence, so I’m betting the farm on Kurt Angle, and uh, I guess I’m kind of like the icing on the cake, Sting and I have a crazy track record with Pay-Per-View buy numbers, and it just made sense to give everybody a little extra, and let everybody know, and, that it’s not a performance orientated match. Of course none of em’ were for m
