Tony said, “As a wrestling fan and as a wrestling promoter, this is the best news we can get. TNT is so happy with how Rampage is tracking already. I think they think it’s going to be a huge hit. There’s definitely a lot of interest and we owe the people at TNT. They could not have rolled out the red carpet any more for us.” [h/t:WrestlingInc]

He added, “They have so much in terms of promoting the show. There’s been ads all over the place. I watched ‘Seinfeld’ on TBS last night when I checked into the hotel in Pittsburgh. Every time it went to break, there were Rampage commercials, which is great.”
