In the wake of The Elite’s major announcement officially launching All Elite Wrestling along with Jacksonville Jaguars owner Tony Khan, some more details about the company have started to come out.
According to a report from Rajah, former WWE Commentator Jim Ross is said to heavily involved with AEW. Ross will not only be a commentator for the promotion, but he will also be involved heavily in a backstage role with the company. However, Jim Ross is still currently under contract with WWE through the end of March 2019. Ross has denied reports of his rumored involvement with All Elite Wrestling, since the initial report from SEScoops of the planned launch of what was then at the time an unnamed promotion.
In addition, the report also stated that Barry Bloom will be involved behind the scenes in the recruiting process for the promotion. It was also said that AEW is planning to “go hard” in their attempt to sign WWE Talents for both in-ring and backstage roles with the company when their current deals with WWE expire.
It has also been reported that AEW is interested in signing Bill Goldberg as well as other wrestling legends. It should also be noted that Goldberg just happens to be one of Barry Bloom’s clients.
As far as Chris Jericho’s rumored involvement with All Elite Wrestling, reports have stated that he will be involved “in depth” with the promotion. Jericho also denied the initial reports of his involvement last year, however we would like to point out that Chris Jericho tweeted out a photo of himself on the sidelines of the Jaguars and Vikings game over the weekend, where he thanked Jags owner Tony Khan. Jericho said, “Amazing feeling to be on the field for the big vikings game today!! Thanks to @tonyrkhan & the #Vikings organization for the hookup! @ U.S. Bank Stadium”
