Actor and former WWE creative team member, Freddie Prinze Jr., has mentioned in multiple interviews as of late that he is interested in starting a wrestling promotion. Prinze recently spoke to TV Insider and mentioned that long-time wrestling fan, Macaulay Culkin, might join him in this venture. It was also previously speculated that Triple H would start a new promotion.

Prinze Jr. said that he wants to set up a new indie promotion in California.
“I have this plan where one day I want to start my own [independent] fed here in California,” Prinze said. “One that I know won’t make any money and will be a loss, but I can still stay connected. That I can hire wrestlers and let them do their work. I was talking to Ariel Helwani about a two-year plan I had,” he continued.
Prinze then mentioned Macaulay Culkin, who has been on his podcast, might be interested in being involved as well:
“I might have a partner in crime with one of my guests Macaulay Culkin, who has a passion for it as well. So we may do MFW, which does not stand for what you think it does.”
The 45-year-old did two separate stints on the WWE Creative Team. Once from 2008-09 and then again from 2010-12. He mentioned in the interview that he did not have the time to continue in the role after having two kids with his wife, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.
With so many talented wrestlers currently looking for a place to call home, or floating from one promotion to another as free agents, there’s definitely room for yet another wrestling promotion to emerge on the indie scene. Prinze Jr. has been eyeing to create a new independent circuit promotion and expressed his desire for the venture recently.
