The company has been flirting with the idea via their subscription-based www.highspots.tv service but are moving forward with a number of different iPPV projects.
Some shows will be live, streaming iPPV events, including the Pro Wrestling Syndicate Wrestlemania weekend events, while others will be events and interviews that are taped and then made available later for download, such as the most recent Extreme Rising event and events from PWX in North Carolina, who's most recent event was set up for download hours after the event ended.
Highspots intends to make the most out of the technology, such as filming a new shoot interview "A Full Case of Tales with Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs" and then making the interview available the same day. Highspots released the following synopsis for the interview, which is available at this link:
This is without hyperbole one of the best interviews we have ever done. These two have travelled all over the world and hold absolutely nothing back in this truly tell-all interview about sex, drugs and wrestling.
You will hear all about how these two met and became friends. Then we jump forward to Corinoâ€™s â€œwrestling rehabâ€ angle, the revelation of Jimmy Jacobs as his sponsor and the Kevin Steen reinstatement angle that eventually spawned the group known as SCUM and became Ring of Honorâ€™s hottest angle of 2012. All of this is covered in great detail including why Jim Cornette was never a fan of the Steen vs. El Generico feud, with a ton of insight from Corino about the backstage vibe at Final Battle 2010 when Steen lost the career versus mask match.
Both ROH veterans, Corino and Jacobs compare the management styles of Gabe Sapolsky, Adam Pearce, Delirious and Jim Cornette in one of the most insightful discussions weâ€™ve ever captured on film about the inner workings of Ring of Honor. If you are an ROH fan this is a true canâ€™t miss interview as tons of backstage stories and conversations were recounted.
But we delve into so much more than Ring of Honor. We talk about life on the independents, disappoints one encounters as a wrestler, travelling, being able to balance wrestling with an existence in the real world, indy wrestlers being signed by developmental and more.
This is an invaluable interview for current or aspiring wrestlers as both men share SO much knowledge about angle development, ring psychology, getting heat, whatâ€™s good heat and whatâ€™s bad heat plus so much more. Itâ€™s a master class in psychology told in between hilarious stories.
And the stories are incredible. Hear about the time Corino almost got shot by a fan in Puerto Rico during a match. Hear about the backstage fight between Sandman and Jack Victory in ECW. Hear about when an entire locker room rushed into the ring trying to attack Jimmy Jacobs, Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli. From drinking Jay Briscoeâ€™s blood to dating Becky Bayless to scoring drugs with Zach Gowan, Jimmy Jacobs holds absolutely nothing back. Both wrestlers give some of the most honest testimonials about drug use in the business weâ€™ve ever heard.
Steve even shares a never-before-told story that he originally said he was saving for his book. But as the Jack Daniels continued to flow and the hour grew late, Steve finally gave in and what followed was the unbelievable story of Corino, Dory Funk Jr., Doryâ€™s wife, Jack Brisco, Missy Hyatt and their wild night of sex.
Youâ€™ve never heard anything like A FULL CASE OF TALES with JIMMY JACOBS & STEVE CORINO. Itâ€™s the true something-for-everyone interview. Almost 2 hours of insane stories, insight into the wrestling business and absolute honesty from two amazing minds who have been around the world."
