WWE Talent Interested In New Venture Linked To The Young Bucks And Cody, All Elite Wrestling
Since the news broke that All Elite Wrestling trademarks were filed, there has been a lot of talk about The Young Bucks and Cody’s new venture backed by Tony Khan.
As of right now no solid plans have been announced for this new promotion, all we know is trademarks have been filed, and a website domain and social media handles have been obtained.
Dave Meltzer noted in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that several WWE wrestlers are interested in the new venture. No names have been mentioned, but contracts for several stars are ending in 2019 including Shinsuke Nakamura, AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson.
As of right now any speculation in regards to the promotion would be premature as no TV deal has been signed, and AXS TV has denied any involvement with the new venture. Until the promotion get’s a TV deal, or some announcement in regards to any sort of deal is known, all we can do is speculate about future plans.
As of right now all we know is that trademarks have been filed for a potential Tuesday Night show, plus two PPV events. We also know that The Young Bucks and Cody are behind this venture, so any former Bullet Club members who’s contracts are ending would most likely be linked to this new promotion.
