    Matt Hardy's WWE contract has now expired. He's free to show up anywhere now.

    Lita, Gail Kim And Christy Hemme Launch Kickstarter For Dramatic Wrestling Pilot

    The press release further explains:

    Part TV drama, part wrestling promotion, the show will effectively demolish the fourth wall between characters and audience for a viewing experience that wrestling fans have never seen before. In a traditionally male-dominated industry, KAYFABE is a dramatization and collection of female stories inspired by real life events.

    “I think KAYFABE is a great feminist story about a group of empowered women who have—in the most literal sense you could imagine—taken control of their own narratives,” said Hemme, a fan favorite who wrestled for both Impact Wrestling and WWE.

    Named after the wrestling craft term that refers to the strict manner in which performers were once forbidden from breaking character or sharing industry secrets, KAYFABE is the perfect name for the new show, which will be taking that term and turning it on its head.

    “All the stories we’ll be presenting in this show are something that, in one way or another, happened in real life,” said Kim, a one-time WWE Diva and recent inductee to the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame.

    The producers—who all enjoyed storied careers in professional wrestling and each command a sizable and fervent following—have taken to Kickstarter to fund the creation of a pilot in an attempt to bring their vision to life without compromise. In addition to their on-screen careers, all three also share extensive backgrounds behind the camera – Kim being the first female wrestling agent in Impact Wrestling, Hemme becoming the first female talent to join the Impact creative team as director of the women’s division and Dumas, as the first female to become a producer for WWE.

    Additional wrestling-related talent working on the show include:

    Jimmy Jacobs
    Former WWE writer Tom Casiello
    Stunt coordinator Chavo Guerrero
    David Sahadi, who worked in WWE and Impact
    Impact star Alisha Edwards
    Pretty interesting, they have some big names behind it.

    Re: News And Rumors Tidbits. *May Contain Spoilers*

    I love how they were teasing this big thing on twitter for a week, and then it was revealed to be a kickstarter. Also funny how they framed it as a womens wrestling show by women, and then 75% of the listed talent working on the show are men.

    I don't see them raising the money they wanted. They needed millions to complete a season.

    Hasn’t this idea been tried and failed several times though? I feel like Jimmy Jacobs has been involved in all of them...

    It doesn't really even make sense. There seems to be more opportunity for women's wrestling than ever.

    Kim should get that obnoxious liar husband of hers to get out there and hustle for the money. Or, and here's an idea, they could fund the shit themselves if they really believe in it this deeply.

    This is from Mashed, but it's all over the internet...

    Fans were shocked when, in 2008, it came to light that Robert Irvine's resume was dramatically embellished. Some of his more impressive claims were that he had a British knighthood, baked a wedding cake for the marriage of his close friend Prince Charles to Princess Diana, and owned a castle in Scotland.
    Also, his net worth is upward of $15 million, so he should bankroll this thing, or at least convince some of his friends in the royal family to.

    That's pretty bizarre. Not exactly sure how anyone could trust a person like that again.

    That goober Sam Roberts is bad enough (though it’s funny when the crowd gives him hell every time he speaks), but now this goober comes back? Not a fan personally but it is what it is.
