Chris Jericho having some fun and is joined by William Regal.
Early today an article went live courtesy of SEScoops which noted that WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross and the current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho were launching their own wrestling promotion. The report noted that Jericho and Jim Ross were working with agent Barry Bloom and that the wrestling promotion was going to be funded by the 'Khan Family' who has ownership of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Within the report it was mentioned that Jim Ross' contract with AXS TV is coming to an end and it does it in January of 2019. Fightful reached out to a representative of AXS TV for a response to the report and the rep told Fightful that: "There's no truth to the AXS TV component of the report."
As the rumor began to make the rounds on social media, it caught the attention of one of the individuals involved in the story, Chris Jericho. Jericho went on to jokingly tweet that along with starting his own wrestling promotion, he is also starting a movie studio with Lady Gaga and a carwash with Bono. NXT on-screen GM William Regal also decided to chime in on the fun as well.
One wrestling event/show that Jericho will be at the helm of is his 'Rock N Wrestling Rager At Sea' cruise that begins on October 27th and ends on October 31st and it was recently announced that the wrestling portion of the cruise will be filmed for a FITE TV and 'HonorClub' special that is set to air in early November.
