    This will PROBABLY be a teaser trailer with a launch date. Katz has said in interviews in the past that he likes the movie formula of teaser trailer - full trailer - release.

    Really interested in MVP's new character. I've wanted to see a heel, american war hero gimmick for a while now. There will definitely be plenty of issues for him to touch up on, since we all know that Americans don't give two shits about their war vets. Even today's troops get shat on. Bars of soap as "care packages," rofl.

    I'm definitely intrigued by this, but also concerned that it'll be an anti-climax.

    Great to see people trying to push things forward a bit though and yeah, MVP's character has my interest too.

    Lazy question, as there's probably vids in this thread, but any idea on what the production values are going to be like?

    Don't think there have been vids and they have their first teaser vid coming out soon, I believe.

    There are a couple of in-ring pics that look cool and gritty and I could be wrong but it seems like it's going to have an underground feel to it, which should be pretty sick.

    I realize this answer didn't help very much. I apologize.

    I dig the underground. I also like reading the conjecture of the likes of you. It's all good.

    He wants it to look like a movie/well-made television show, as well as being familiar to wrestling fans already. So think a combination of great quality television/movie editing with the standard wrestling formula. The few screengrabs have been in great resolution, and for the most part close-up, though screengrabs aren't really the same and only provide a guess.

    "Cinematic" is the main word.

    The teaser trailer is coming ... though in a "new way" Katz says:

    @TheWRProject WRP
    So, full disclosure, we're going to do the trailer rollout in a slightly different way. Something in keeping with the spirit of WRP's birth.
    A fun note:
    @TheWRProject WRP
    True Story: We named a WRP enhancement talent after @bdgrabinski.
    @TheWRProject WRP
    We also named enhancement talents after @carterswan and @ratpackslim.
    That's BenDavid Grabinski, who worked with Katz on Shoot 'Em Up; Carter Swan, another crew guy; and Rob Sturma, a writer and blogger.

    Oh, and two screenshots! They have not been color corrected, but these are shots from the teaser trailer.

    It's been released.... and how about this. He's actually provided links through none other than Pirate Bay. Spoilered for length of composed tweets

    He basically "leaked" the trailer before he sets it up to stream online. The current one leaked will be in a higher definition

    Shouldn't the thread title match then?

    Seems like an odd switch to me. Did they give a reason for it?

    I guess i'm really not into the target audience because I've been quite bored watching it.

    I understand that people are excited to see wrestlers they love but to me, who does'nt know most of them, it was'nt very compelling. No promos, ordinary production value, very small crowd etc.

    Well it is a teaser trailer. It's designed to not necessarily wow anyone outside of if you know who's in it. Besides, motherf'n Prince is involved and not shown.

    Teaser trailers should always wow people, regardless of whether or not they actually know the details of what's going on or who is involved. If you don't get a "...what the.. what is.. huh? I must see/know more!!" reaction, it's not a good teaser.

    I liked the footage and stuff that I saw, but overall thought the trailer itself wasn't that great.

    Yeah, the trailer is pretty weak. It doesn't really give you as good of an example of what's to come. I still really want to watch the series, it's just a weakly done trailer.

    Still psyched though.

    Trailer was fine but nothing in it surprised or wowed me. We knew the picture quality was good from the photos he released.

    Tell me about it...I was getting excited with all the daily updates in this thread. Then it just sort of stopped.

    Maybe something got held up in the production phases of the program?

    Looking at the site, there hasn't been an update in nearly two months when that trailer was posted.

    Lame.

    I've been working on this project since January and, ultimately, the chance to keep building my own universe was too good to turn down.


    And scattered among other tweets:

    @ProwresHero THE UNDERGROUND, however, per the YouTube network deals, will be exclusive to YouTube for the first 18 months.

    @DaModernLegend THE UNDERGROUND is designed specifically for younger and lesser known wrestlers.

    Also, sorry for the radio silence. I didn't want to say anything about the new shows until we were getting stuff in the can.

    Perhaps its "lost momentum," but it still hasn't been released yet. It's too early to judge when the product hasn't even come out yet. The people who were hyped about it will remember, and if it's good, the word of mouth will spread quite nicely.

    True, but it still would've been nice to get some sort of basic timeline for the release. The longer I want for a release, the more interest I lose.

    Agreed. I was really hyped for this at one point, but I'm pretty sure I no longer give even an eighth of a fuck now.

    Dude hasn't even tweeted in like 48 days or something.

    Even if this does come out now, they totally mishandled it and lost all the momentum they had.

    Wonder what their ultimate downfall was. Not enough funding to get it launched when they originally planned? Highest costs for wrestlers then anticipated?

    It obviously will get released at some point, but what I disappointment.

    Hopefully the product is good enough that it can regain the momentum it had after the word of mouth spreads again. It'll be a damn shame if this lack of advertising completely kills the project.

    I wonder if there's any legal issues. If TNA or WWE wanted to be really freakin anal about their contracted talent in Daivari (via Ring Ka King) and Hero, respectively.

    This actually would make a ton of sense. I certainly wouldn't put it past WWE.

    They've never really done anything this that before in similar situations.

    At one point late last year I was really looking forward to this. Any word on it?

    I'll take the proverbial bull here...


    Recently I noticed that @KatzMoney changed his Twitter handle to @KatzLives. Rather than copy & paste everything he tweeted, here's a brief synopsis. Some time between filming the sister project, the Underground, and finishing it, he basically had a bit of downward spiral. He basically became an addict to vodka & overeating due to a bad breakup with his gf as well as some of his money tied up in other investments (which were somehow connected to Bernie Madoff... that says it all). Due to some things finally falling in his favor, he seems to be back on track.

    So The Underground (in his words, this is the Teen Titans to his original project's Justice League) as well as WRP should be released sometime this year. Looks like in addition to MVP & Joey Ryan, I noticed the Young Bucks/Generation Me in there as well. There's your update.

    So he is mentally unstable and horrible with money? At least we know that promoting wrestling is his true calling.

    I'd say predominantly it was the fact that he was left broke. Kind of hard to do business when you don't have money... then again, that didn't stop Heyman and ECW.

    So with the lack of money to launch this product, any chance it sees the light of day by the end of the year? Or is this just one of those things that will randomly come out down the road?

    I'm not even sure at this point. When/if it comes out, I'll still watch it, but until then, I'm not going to hold my breath.

    That would suck if they took all that time to record the first season, though, and never released it.

    I feel bad for the guy, but how much money do you need to throw some videos on a download store? My guess is he's not done editing, but hopefully he at least already started, meaning he'd have the software and equipment necessary. I think it would be a real boost to both himself and his product to get at least one thing out for sale ASAP.

    Oh shit, guys! Actual news!

    From KickPuncherTCU on the GameFAQ.com forums:

    I donated to the Kickstarter, and got this email today.

    First of all, I'd like to apologize to you all for the radio silence on my end. While I've addressed my personal situation a few times in interviews, I am very aware that I should have done a better job keeping you guys updated. There is no good answer for that beyond the fact I was highly embarrassed to admit I was badly struggling personally and it wasn't something I was comfortable dealing with in public. That's not a good excuse - nor, frankly, is there any good excuse - but that is the truth. I appreciate the notes of support that I've gotten from folks over time and, in general, can only apologize and hope you at least somewhat understand the desire to not play out my personal economics on a public stage. Still, I owed you guys better communication than that and I am very sorry that I didn't handle it better.

    Second, I'm happy to say that with the help of more friends than I can mention (but, very specifically, Nic, Blake, Ben, Mark, Chris, Zain, Lou and Nigel), the epic odyssey of WRP has finally wrapped up. Starting today and over the next few weeks - with help from some of our friends and supporters in the online wrestling community - we'll be releasing preview matches that should give you a taste of what we did over those few crazy days in Los Angeles. Whatever your opinion of me - and, lord knows, I've earned it - I think you'll appreciate the great work our talented roster and crew put in for your wrestling entertainment. I really can't say enough about this group of men and women and - to the guys in the locker room especially - I give you all my love, respect, awe and deepest apology for the delay.

    Additionally, with each preview match, we'll be updating you with the latest on our official release plans from Image (who we can't thank enough for their continued support) and - most importantly - the financial renumeration of our backers, the wrestling fans. I feel like this is the right thing to do and - in light of some recent positive personal developments - I should finally be in a position to do so over the course of this coming fall. We will still be honoring any of your earned Kickstarter prizes, but I feel like returning your money is the only way to truly make things right going forward.

    I don't intend on hanging around and bugging you guys after this is all over - I think it's fair to say that I've already overstayed my welcome as it is - so I'd prefer to walk off into the sunset knowing we're as right with each other as humanly possible. I set out to do this project with very genuine and true intentions and I would like to exit in the same way. I recognize that I owe you guys, the boys who worked for me and the business that much. It's the right way to say goodbye.

    So, please click the link and enter the password: "********" and enjoy the Champion's Grail battle royal and the continuing saga of Joey Ryan as "Chase Walker."

    https://vimeo.com/69165195

    Please note, due to Vimeo's 500MB upload limitations this match is uploaded in SD and not HD. Also, there is both language and content here that is decidedly not safe for work.

    Thanks again for your patience and continued support.

    Best,

    Jeff Katz

    I was absolutely hanging on every new reveal when this was being unveiled originally. I'll be checking it out at the very least.

    Fucking A, this looked awesome as it was developing.

    He's actually going to give people back their money AND give them their Kickstarter rewards?

    If that's the case, that's a really good job on his part.

    Looking forward to this.

    Wow, talk about eerie. Just before I left for work this morning, I randomly decided to look up if there had been any update to the WRP. Then I get home and see this! Still pretty stoked to check this out. It's a shame that we probably won't see a continuation if it turns out awesome.

    It was a pretty cool idea and presentation that he had. I hope that someone tries something similar, it was different.

    Not much. Katz said it would be a few months before the official roll out, but that they are in the final stages of finishing it up and it will soon be available. I would imagine that people who contributed to the Kickstarter will be first in line, and if nothing else it should leak soon after that. The current speculation is that we might be it by the end of summer.

    We'll see, though. He's not what you'd call a stickler for deadlines.

    If he releases the preview matches in the next few weeks like he said he would, then we can assume the roll out is actually happening.

    Yeah unfortunately I'm not really expecting anything for this, which is a damn shame. If he really had his shit together this looked like it'd be absolutely brilliant.

    I still remember how hyped we all were when they were releasing the cast list. Haven't been that excited for a new promotion in a long time.

    Oh my God, it was ridiculous.

    I'm tempted to donate to the kickstarter right now just to give it a boost.

    You just want first crack at the matches. I am curious to see Cabana and Ryan work their characters. Also to see "Kassius Ohno" and his contribution.

    So get this. 9 years on... Jeff Katz has decided to finally upload this footage to YouTube.

    I was watching NXT and Matt Riddle telling Timothy Thatcher that he's a beautiful man and I started thinking about Timothy Thatcher's teeth and when it was that I first came across him. I realised that it was here, where Thatcher was going to be playing a British character called "Bryce Baxter-Collins" or "BBC" and then I found this report from a few weeks back. Jeff Katz has decided to upload all the footage to YouTube as a reaction to the pandemic. All he asks is a small donation to the Red Cross or other charities.

    JEFF KATZ APOLOGIZES FOR 'BETRAYING' WRESTLING FANS, BEGINS UPLOADING COMPLETE WRESTLING RETRIBUTION PROJECT ONLINE FOR FREE
    By Mike Johnson on 2020-03-20 09:30:00

    In 2011, The Wrestling Revolution project, headed by Hollywood film producer Jeff Katz (who worked for WCW prior to his Hollywood exploits), announced that he had a distribution deal with Image Entertainment, who also distribute the Criterion Collection movie label. The plan was for a planned 13 episode self-contained series to be distributed via DVD and streaming services.

    The series was filmed in October 2011 in Los Angeles at Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles, featuring a roster of 22 talents, many of whom portrayed unique characters and personalities that were only utilized for WRP. Among those who worked the tapings were MVP, Luke Gallows, Colt Cabana, Alex Reynolds, The Amazing Red, Dr. Luther, Ken Doann, Sami Callihan, Kenny Omega, Shawn Daivari, Emil Sitoci, Ben Muth, Mike Rollins, Karl Anderson, Joey Ryan, Pat Buck, actress Tricia LaFeche, Timothy Thatcher and Kevin Matthews, among others.

    Then, nothing.

    Despite using Kickstarter to raise money for the project, Katz never delivered the product.

    Until today.

    Overnight, Katz posted the following apology and then began making all of the Raw footage from the taping free online, seeking to give fans who are stuck at home due to the coronavirus outbreak something new and unique to watch.

    Katz's apology::

    WRP
    @TheWRProject
    We're all in this together.

    Katz has been uploading footage to this YouTube channel and is asking fans to donate $1 to the Red Cross, United Way or Habitat for Humanity if they enjoy the content. He also gave his blessing for others to take the raw footage and re-edit it themselves.

    Thanks to Joshua Higham for bringing this to our attention.
    Here's the channel:

    Here's Thatcher trying to do a British accent as "BBC" by the way:
