As noted, a shocking development took place at the All Elite Wrestling “Double Or Nothing” Rally in Jacksonville, Florida on Tuesday, as the promotion announced that Chris Jericho has signed a contract with the company.
Following the Rally, Cody and Brandi Rhodes spoke with members of the media in attendance at the TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville about the Jericho signing.
“To have Chris Jericho here today, to give us what we call in the wrestling industry, ‘the rub,’ and for him to—no pun intended—go all in with All Elite Wrestling, I want that to be the news today,” Cody said. “So, that meant we held some things back because we want to do this thing slow, we want to do it correct.”
Additionally, Cody addressed whether or not the company is expecting a television deal in the future.
“TV is massively important, but it’s not the end all be all, because as you’ve seen with Being the Elite and the medium we have,” Rhodes said. “We have big plans.”
