Jim Ross Teases NEW Wrestling Promotion
Jim Ross AKA “Good Ole’ JR” has been teasing a big change in wrestling coming in the next year.
JR has a contract with WWE but, it expires soon and he has not opted to renew. The word on the street is this: #ChrisJericho, #JimRoss, #BarryBloom and #Shahi Khan are putting together a NEW Wrestling Promotion to rival the WWE.
Who Are the Players?
Chris Jericho – 9 Time WWE Intercontinental Champion, the current #NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling) IWGP (International Wrestling Grand Prix) Intercontinental Champion and the lead singer of the rock band Fozzy. WOW – that was a lot to type…
A Wrestling LEGEND. He has tons of loyal fans and many went with him when he went to NJPW. Having someone like this in your corner while starting a new promotion would be worth its weight in gold.
Jim Ross – Legendary commentator, owner of his own line of BBQ sauces and mustard(s) This man has forgotten about more talent than you or I could ever remember. His experience in the field of Wrestling would be very valuable to someone starting their own promotion.
Barry Bloom – A man often regarded as “The Power Agent” his resume has included the likes of Brock Lesnar, Jesse Ventura, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, Triple H…The list goes on.
Not to mention he was one of the big players in the Monday Night Wars. He knows a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to Wrestling.
Shahid Khan – One of the richest men in the world, owner of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham Football Club (UK) of the English Premier League.
This man could finance any promotion he wanted for years without making a profit and without breaking a sweat.
It is rumored that his motive for the Wrestling promotion is that one of his sons is a major Wrestling fan.
Many WWE Performers are said to be quite unhappy with their status in the company and are looking for greener pastures. JR is sending out feelers to those within the WWE while it is rumored that Jericho is sending out those same feelers to those in NJPW.
Jericho has denied any “Ownership” of the said promotion, but, it would not be a lie for him to say he is not a financial backer or interest holder as all of that would be in Khan’s department.
