Earlier today, a report from SEScoops started making the rounds that Chris Jericho and Jim Ross are working together with their agent on launching a new pro wrestling promotion. My main man Sean struck the right note when he passed this along by cautioning against believing it outright, though there’s obviously wiggle room.
Well, Jericho has since responded publicly:
I’m starting my own wrestling company? AWESOME! Im also starting my own movie studio w #LadyGaga, my own carwash w #Bono & my own bakeshop!— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) October 20, 2018
That’s a very Jericho response, though it’s worth noting that even if it was true, we couldn’t reasonably rely on his being honest about it on his Twitter.
For his part, Jim Ross hasn’t commented while AXS TV, who the original report indicated would be the television partner, has issued denials to media outlets making inquiries.
