Good Ol’ JR has added more fuel to the fire of the rumors that he and Chris Jericho will be starting a new wrestling company with some comments on the cruise.
Whilst Chris Jericho denied the rumors that he and WWE Hall Of Famer JR are planning on creating a new promotion, during a live recording of Talk Is Jericho featuring Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler the commentator made some interesting comments.
In a video shared by BroBible, the three men were discussing WWE attempting to stop Rey Mysterio from appearing on the cruise and JR made the following comments:
“Somebody along the way is going to create another company some day and you’re not gonna have to worry about all that bullsh*t.”
Obviously, Ross didn’t explicitly say he and Jericho were those people, but they are comments that wrestling fans are certainly going to be paying interest to. The pair is reportedly working with billionaire Shahid Khan, the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Premier League side, Fulham F.C. You can see the video from the cruise below:

Matt Jackson Comments On Wrestling At Sea
Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks commented on wrestling on the cruise on Twitter. He stated that there aren’t a lot of first times left, but this was one of those and it was an unreal experience.
Not a lot of first times left, but this was most definitely my first time ever wrestling in a ring, on a boat, in the middle of the ocean. Unreal experience. https://t.co/S1a6z6icwB
