New details have emerged regarding All Elite Wrestling.

Furthermore, agent Barry Bloom will be involved in the recruitment process. Rajah reports that AEW will "go hard" at trying to sign WWE talents, both in-ring and backstage, whose contracts are set to expire. They are also looking to sign legends, including Goldberg, who is a client of Bloom's. 

Chris Jericho will reportedly be involved "in depth" with the company as well. Jericho previously laughed off the initial report that he, Bloom and Ross would be starting their own wrestling company

Rajah goes on to report that AEW President Tony Khan is putting $100 million into the company. He is also using his contacts in the television industry to secure a TV deal for AEW. Khan and AEW are reportedly talking to Time Warner, the parent company of TNT and TBS. Neither network has had wrestling programming on their station since the death of WCW. TNT recently signed a deal with ONE Championship. It was previously reported by the Wrestling Observer that AEW are in talks with multiple networks, but no television deal is official.

Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp speculated on AEW's potential TV deal here.

AEW will hold a rally in Jacksonville on Jan. 8 to announce more details. On Tuesday night, Cody and Brandi Rhodes, the Young Bucks, and Hangman Page officially signed their contracts with the company.
