Chris Jericho, Goldberg Going To All Elite Wrestling?
There is a new rival for every industry in the pro wrestling business. All Elite Wrestling has been announced officially on the 1st January 2019. AEW is backed financially by Jacksonville Jaguars’ co-owner, Tony Khan. Cody Rhodes & Young Bucks has been announced as the EVP’s of AEW.
About the talents, we will see them coming from around indies & other wrestling promotions, and from WWE too. Rajah.Com is reporting some top WWE talents like Goldberg & Chris Jericho are could be coming to AEW, they are way easy to get connected as they are not bound to WWE currently.
The site also stated that Jim Ross is heavily involved in this both on commentary and in a backstage capacity. Jim Ross has denied the association many times but we will see him in AEW, once his deal is up with WWE, ending possibly at this year’s WrestleMania.
As per Rajah.Com, “Sports agent Barry Bloom, who already represents many prolific talent in the industry, is involved from a recruitment perspective. According to our source, AEW will “go hard” at WWE for stars whose deals will be expiring and they will be “mixing in legends” as well. One name that has been brought up is Goldberg, who I believe is already a client of Bloom’s. Chris Jericho – who has also been rumored to be connected to this new promotion – is going to be involved “in depth” as well, as per our source. There are other WWE employees/contractors (note, this does not necessarily mean wrestlers) who AEW is going to pursue aggressively when they are legally able to”
Who is really in with the All Elite Wrestling will be more clear after the AEW rally which is held on 8th January, this Tuesday. We will keep you regarding the news.
