• Chris Jericho & Jim Ross Working With A Billionaire To Start A New Wrestling Promotion
According to SeScoops, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross have been working with Barry Bloom to start a new wrestling promotion.
This new project is financially backed by the Khan Family.
Shahid Khan of the Khan Family is one of the richest people in this world. He owns NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and English Premiere League’s Fulham F.C.
Shahid’s son, Tony, has been hands-on with this project as he’s a big wrestling fan.
Jim Ross has sent out ‘feelers’ to some WWE wrestlers for this new promotion. On the other hand, Chris Jericho is negotiating with wrestlers from New Japan Pro Wrestling.
As of now, Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page are all in for this project.
Talks are going on with AXS to get a TV deal for this new promotion.
This new wrestling promotion is expected to launch in early 2020.
