Looking at the trademark filings, this does seem to have some legs to it.

It's coming............. <Vince shitting himself>

It will be interesting to see who 'All Elite Wrestling' poach from WWE (ie Back-Of-House staff, as well as on-air talent).

There's too many signs for this not to be true at this point. I just wonder what shape this will take. Are they actually going to try and build their own promotion when ROH and NJPW are still around with their partnership and WWE still signing guys left and right?

Like who are they really going to get for this? Unless their idea is a few shows every year or something. But with the Jags Owner possibly being involved you think it would be bigger than that.

I'm kind of intrigued. Weekly TV will lose my interest 100%. It being the Bucks & Cody, I don't think they want to do NJPW or ROH style touring formats. So we are probably just looking at traditional TV wrestling. All the luck to them, but it's an uphill battle of giant proportions. I really doubt their key audience (which is 100% Youtube, and you really can't monetise Youtube well right now) will be tuning in on cable TV to watch them.

:bjpenn Always down for more wrestling on my screen. Not so much more Cool Dad, but the Bucks are cool. I do wonder if other companies are in on this and are working together, or if CODY is about to pull a Dusty and go into business for himself, IF YOU WHEEL.

Either way, this has my attention.

Cool best of luck to them.

Uphill battle for sure with staffing, building a talent roster securing a TV deal, promotion it could be a year until you see them do anything with this if all goes according to plan. It will also likely cause other companies to become trepidatious about letting their contracted talent work with them. It's not going to be publically funded at first which would mean that the money is going to be better elsewhere. Billionaires don't exactly like losing or spending their money. You also have to wonder how much The Elite's stock drops without the exposure of New Japan and ROH to aid them.

Why would Vince be shitting himself? It took Cody and the Bucks a year to build a show to draw 10,000 people and that's when they had NJPW and ROH on their side. Now you are looking at trying to find a regular TV spot(when wresting that isn't WWE is struggling to find decent homes on high clearance TV networks) with building a talent roster hiring a fulltime staff promoting finding venues and spending the outlay on producing TV. If they make it to TV regularly then they have to build up an audience(that isn't exactly large even for the companies these people are already performing for and likely no longer will be performing for if they go this route and that's with the infrastructure already in place. This is a gamble more than a guarantee. Like I said before this could be a year away from being a thing that even has legs if it gets that far.

A new promotion for wrestlers to go is always a good thing in my opinion. Opens up the world to new, exciting wrestlers and new innovative stuff. If they want to run it as a proper promotion then I'm all for it, but if it's just going to be a Bullet Club/Elite vanity promotion like Ring Of Honor has become then no thanks. Hopefully it will be the former should this come into fruition.

They seemed to have some decent backing behind then which is good, hopefully they are careful with how they spend it and use it to invest in a decent roster that they can build up rather than just a load of big names where there is no room to grow.

Looking forward to seeing what they have to offer

Good on Jericho and JR for giving it a shot. They won't be challenging WWE, but more options for wrestlers and fans isn't a bad thing. Hopefully Jericho doesn't use it to put himself over like Jarrett did in the early TNA days

This is amazing with Jericho and JR being involved I have a feeling we might be seeing the start of another promotion like WCW. I hope it is successful. I wonder if they’ll try to get AJ Styles?
