"Vortexx will be the new maverick in kids entertainment - delivering a high-energy entertainment destination that delivers action and comedy unlike any other."

        Vortex sounds interesting. I wonder if it was a good idea for them to buy back Power rangers.

          A bit off-topic but...

          Ok Saban, now THIS is just dumb. If you really want to relive the old Fox Kids days (as if airing Power Rangers wasn't enough) then you'd give WWE a 60 minute timeslot with them having all-new matches & promos like the original WWF Superstars (which aired over here after Fox Kids & American Gladiators) did back in the 90s, not 30 minutes of segments with only 1 match (most likely clipped) every week. Honestly, the description of the show in the article reminds me of WWF's old Coliseum Video tapes and not in a good way either since that was back when kayfabe in wrestling was still alive and when the internet wasn't so huge that not everyone knew about the wrestlers' personal lives.

          I don't see this doing well on the block at all.
