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