As reported earlier today, several trademarks were filed for a new promotion called “All Elite Wrestling” which is being financially backed and possibly owned by billionaire Shad Khan and family. The trademarks strongly suggest that Cody and The Young Bucks are involved, likely to set up a future event called “Double or Nothing” and “All Out.”
Last month, a report surfaced noting that Chris Jericho and Jim Ross were two names spearheading the promotion by using their far reaching contacts to recruit talent. At the time, both Jericho and Ross issued denials that they were involved in any such endeavor. Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that is likely true and that it is Cody and The Young Bucks who are the ones “working behind the scenes” talking to potential wrestlers for their venture and that Ross and Jericho would simply be contracted talent for the promotion.
