Chris Jerico took to Twitter to comment on the report from earlier about talks for a new start-up wrestling company that is reportedly being funded by a billionaire.
For those of you that missed it, click here for more on the story. Basically, the story is that Jericho and Jim Ross have been working with their agent Barry Bloom. Shahid Kham, the billionaire owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, would be funding the promotion. The Young Bucks, Hangman Page and Cody Rhodes are also said to be on board.
Jericho issued a denial on Twitter. If the story is true then Jericho could still be telling the truth because technically, it would be Khan’s company. Perhaps, there have been preliminary talks that went nowhere but it is interesting that Jim Ross on his podcast has been teasing something big happening in wrestling next year.
