I can see Jericho getting the main belt to start with to get eyes on the promotion but Jericho seems to enjoy putting people over so I don’t see him being their “top guy”.

I’m curious who all they could realistically get and how that’ll effect their relationships with ROH/NJPW/Impact.

I see guys like Pentagon, Fenix, Dalton, the Addiction, Flip coming on board.

Re: AEW - All Elite Wrestling (The Elite/Jericho/Ross/Khan) - New Promotion?

I feel like this will be something that gets a lot of hopes up for real competition in wrestling but ultimately doesn't live up to the hype.

Jericho loves the wrestling world, he will do everything to find the next big superstars and take them to the next level. Money are not the biggest problem when u compete against WWE though.

I think it is unavoidable that Elite guys would be main eventers of this promotion. They are doing the groundwork here so it makes sense and who from indies would really be accepted by USA fans as main eventer when you have guys like Cody, Omega and Jericho around?

To me most interesting thing is how it is going to affect RoH/NJPW/Impact/CMLL/AAA. Do they try to make talent sharing deals with them? If so would their partners get along? Interesting stuff to think about.

Honestly they shouldn't complain if New Japan decides to make them to do the job for more loyal Westerners like Juice and Jay and Even the Tongans

You cannot fault New Japan at all if they don't wanna push them after this

I guess i don't see why JR is doing this as he's up there in years. Jericho makes sense with his interviews lately.

I am only here for the arcade.

This is very interesting... this is good for the industry but NJPW and ROH can’t be too happy. Especially NJPW because they went all in with the Elite and Jericho - Omega, Jericho and Cody currently hold the top 3 belts in NJPW. I wonder if they are re-considering pushing outsider gaijins over their home grown talent.

I doubt that Kenny leaves NJPW full time for this. Maybe a couple of appearances for PPVS/TV

I just hope they don't adopt the moronic WWE way of thinking and they keep working with everyone all around the world

Based on stuff that I have seen them say I would be really surprised if they didn't have some kinda of "work with everyone" strategy. Question is if everyone else will agree to that.
