Maybe not.  It depends on how it is delivered.  I am sure he won't go broke.  He is trying to deliver a product that men want.  If his product is "good" he stands to make more money.  Look at the other shows that package and sell "sex"...they are booming.  I would have hoped that he would find another way but it is his money.  I don't see the wife hanging around for years and years if this show turns out to be a success.  Jealousy will become a very big issue.

i agree with u on this,he only needs good people behind him  (a dedicated team) to set him str8 by guiding him  focus on the goal ahead.

i hope he makes it and get into other businesses. live ur dream feller.

    Except as I've been saying for months, there is plenty of history to show that this will not be a success. This is something that's been worked on for almost a year now and they still don't have a single television deal (plan was for it to be syndicated) and the guy who's really behind this is someone who was behind this same sort product multiple times before and had it fail every... Single.... Time. This will not change with "Wrestlicious" I don't recall if they've actually done anything aside from a bunch of corny videos. Never mind the kid apparently didn't keep up his "staying in school" thing, though that's not surprising. Hopefully a lot of money isn't being sunk into this, I'm sure the girls are being paid peanuts but I'm know Jimmy Hart isn't working for free and the "producer" of this probably isn't either. The actual production should be cheap since it certainly is going to be low budget unless someone is ripping it off. If it really gets off the ground it'll be one of those things you see at 2am or later but I doubt it will.

    Wrestling exclusively featuring women has never been a true draw in the US be it campy, corny stuff like this or something more serious like a promotion that's around right now called Shimmer which actually has some good female performers. Besides that, if the women actually have the "it" factor (and can actually wrestle) they're most likely going to be signed up by WWE or the distant number two promotion with its own corny name, TNA..

    You can't predict random.

      The people that talk about buying "junk" don't understand that some automobiles are excellent hard assets.

      Hard assests are always worth something whereas our money is worth what the government says it is worth, and can become worth more as wallpaper !

      Just look at the 1 million percent inflation in Zimbabwe !

      Stooges with the help of these fine gentleman I would become a billionaire !

        Wow. I would actually do the opposite of what he is doing. I'd Buy a large track of empty land and raise horses and plant trees and basically avoid the crowds. For entertainment I could read books and fish in my artificial lake that I would build with my money. I could invite family and friends over for long weekends and holidays. A perfect life!

                There's a difference between not being positive and being a realist but perhaps you're the type that likes to have people not question decisions, as poor as they may be. Enjoy your yes men after you win, I'll be looking forward to your story a few years after. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, especially if you put yourself out there in the public forum.

                  The youngest Powerball winner ever has packed up his millions and moved to Tampa Bay, fulfilling his dream of working in the wrestling business with a wild new TV show.

                  Combine beautiful women, professional wrestling, and part of a $17 million lottery payout, then stir — and you get the new TV show "Wrestlicious".

                  "MAD TV + the WWE + Baywatch + Dave Chappelle = Wrestlicious," explained Powerball winner Jay Vargas, who's helping finance the show with his lottery loot.

                  Videos of the show posted on YouTube show a mix of pro wrestling, sketch comedy, and bikini photo shoots — all involving women in a variety of skin-tight outfits.

                  And one of the recurring characters on "Wrestlicious" is "J.V. Rich" — "The rapper-slash-owner of 'Wrestlicious,'" Vargas said.

                  "J.V. Rich" is a mansion-dwelling, single 21-year old millionaire surrounded by ladies and spending cash like crazy. What's that character have in common with the real Jay Vargas?

                  "Attractive and handsome — like myself," Vargas said with a laugh that showed he wasn't taking himself seriously.

                  Physical appearance is about all the two share. The real Vargas is normal — and pretty humble. After snagging a $17 million lump sum payment last year at age 19, becoming Powerball's youngest-ever winner, Vargas vowed to spend his money smartly.

                  "I don't have the temptation to go out and buy 15 cars or 50 houses, or a big mansion with 50-plus rooms... I just want to be comfortable," he said.

                  He's settled down with a wife and family in a nice, but not-over-the-top house in New Tampa. His money and his mind are totally devoted to his TV show-in-the making.

                  Since Tampa Bay's home to so many wrestlers, Vargas made it his home, too. It's a much better situation than the rumors he hears back home in South Carolina.

                  "I hear I'm dead every month," Vargas said, repeating a rumor that he hears about when he talks to friend and family. "Ever since I won the Powerball."

                  "They actually did a press conference saying that I was dead and that I was found in pieces or something like that. I think it's sort of funny. 'Cause I'm not dead at all," he said with a big laugh.

                  Vargas said his producer is working with TV networks to find a home for the TV show, which has already filmed a pilot episode hosted by wrestling promoter Jimmy Hart.

                    I Agree!

                    It would give our society's members another reason WHY it is an immediate and ultimate bad judgement decision to encourage oneself to become a sociopath, a broadcasting pervert, and/or an enabler of greedy and sexually lude exhibitionists.  Also, it's a feeble long-term parenting lifestyle plan.

                    Thud

                    It would be wise for this 21-year-old, impressionable young man to withdraw from this project.  Instead turning his deeply committed focus towards healthily building up the remainder of his family and original $10M (after taxes paid) FORTUNE [targeting maintenance and 2% continual profit per month on monies].

                    Lovies

                    Green laughHAHHA speak english

                    THIS is why we live in the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.  That guy can blow all his money on WHATEVER he wants.  Face the facts, what percentage of jackpot winners go broke?  chances are that the majority of us here would fall into that percentage.  cuz guess what guys,  you dont know what you will do with that money until you have it.

                    Haters  Proceed...

                      Somebody needs to smack this guy into reality.  Does he not realize that wrestling is losing money and fans.  They along with boxing are being killed by MMA.  I think he has a better chance of winning the Powerball again than getting his show picked up.
