• Vince McMahon Doesn’t Want Chris Jericho To Be A Part Of All Elite Wrestling?
As we noted about a month back, SeScoops reported that 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, Kenny Omega, 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.
With that being said, the promotion’s name could possibly be “All Elite Wrestling“.
In the last week, All Elite Wrestling, LLC filed multiple trademarks and you can check out these trademarked terms below:
– AEW Double Or Nothing
– AEW All Out
– Tuesday Night Dynamite
– ALL OUT
– Double Or Nothing
– All Elite Wrestling
“Double Or Nothing” is rumored to be the name of the next ALL IN pay-per-view.
“Tuesday Night Dynamite” is rumored to be the name of their weekly wrestling show, which could mean that they have a TV deal.
The trademark filings reveal that All Elite Wrestling, LLC is based out of Jacksonville, FL.
All Elite Wrestling, LLC is registered at 1 TIAA Bank Field Drive in Jacksonville. This is the address of Jacksonville Jaguars’ stadium, which is owned by Shad Khan.
This kind of confirms the report of Khan Family being involved in this project.
Chris Jericho & Jim Ross have been denying the reports of this new promotion, but obviously something’s cooking.
Dave Meltzer recently discussed this situation concerning All Elite Wrestling and noted how Vince McMahon might not be a fan of Jericho being a part of AEW.
Vince thinks he created Jericho and that Jericho has star power, so he shouldn’t be a part of this new promotion that basically is getting launched to provide fans with an alternative to the WWE in USA.
Regarding other wrestlers, mainly The Elite, being a part of this promotion, Meltzer talked about how Vince doesn’t care much about them as they never appeared in WWE (except Cody Rhodes), so they aren’t big stars (for the casual audience) that he needs to worry about.
