Earlier today a report was released that stated Chris Jericho and Jim Ross were working with a major benefactor to launch a new pro wrestling promotion. The report also noted that the two had been in talks with AXS TV about securing a TV deal. Since then AXS TV has flatly denied any involvement in the rumored project.

Chris Jericho has taken to Twitter just now to share the following, throwing even more cold water on the idea:

Chris Jericho’s next big endeavor will be his Cruise of Jericho Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager at Sea taking place October 27th-31st. He won’t have much time to rest after as he’ll be defending his IWGP Intercontinental Championship against LIJ’s EVIL at NJPW’s Power Struggle on November 3rd. Jericho loves to surprise the fans, so where he could pop up after that is anybody’s guess.
