A little while back, we reported that Jim Ross and Chris Jericho were in talks to begin a new promotion, with help from the various members of The Elite. While on the Chris Jericho Cruise, it seems Ross added further fuel to the proverbial fire on a new wrestling-based promotion.
The Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager at Sea has kicked into full gear, as Jericho hosted a special episode of Talk is Jericho alongside Ross and Jerry “The King” Lawler. During the show, Ross made comments that eventually found themselves onto the internet with thanks to BroBible on Twitter.
On the topic of WWE attempting to prevent Rey Mysterio from boarding the Cruise, Ross claimed that Jericho has been attempting to bring companies and brands together, and it is embarrassing to see what WWE is doing. Continuing, the former WWE commentator teases the proverbial promotion with Jericho by claiming someone else will come along and create a company, where things like that won’t matter.
As BroBible transcribe, Ross said the following:
“Chris is here bringing brands together, that stuff that’s going on is embarrassing… somebody along the way is going to create another company and they won’t have to worry about that bullshit”

It may only be a matter of time until Jericho and Ross announce the promotion if indeed, the rumors are true. Expect updates from Ringside News as we learn more about the possibility of a new wrestling promotion.
