The Elite announced All Elite Wrestling recently and it has been the talk of the town in the wrestling world. More details about the company have started to come out.
According to a report from Rajah, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is said to be heavily involved with the promotion. Ross will be a commentator as well as having a major backstage role with the company. However, Jim Ross is still currently under contract with WWE which will end on March this year.
According to the report, Barry Bloom will be involved in the recruiting process for the promotion. Apparently, AEW is planning to “go hard” in acquiring WWE talents for both in-ring and backstage roles with the promotion once their WWE contracts expire.
It has also been reported that AEW is interested in signing Bill Goldberg as well as other wrestling legends. It is interesting to note that Goldberg is one of Bloom’s clients.
Regarding Chris Jericho’s role in the promotion, the reports stated that he will be involved “in depth” with the promotion. Just like Jim Ross, he had also denied the initial reports of his involvement with the promotion last year.
It was also reported that Cody & Brandi Rhodes, The Young Bucks, and Adam “Hangman” Page officially signed their contracts with the company on Tuesday.
