Below are some quotes from Jericho:

“There is a whole backstage element that is being signed for all the things that you see in WWE from Talent Relations, to Booking Agents, to Director of the show.

As far as TV goes , I didn’t have any of the things, I wouldn’t have gone to all Elite if there wasn’t a strong TV deal on the table and there’s a couple that I know that are on the table that are like, ‘Wow, that’s what they need. ‘”

Chris would go on to say that the prospective TV deals will definitely allow all those who are curious about the promotion to know that this is a new major force in the industry.

me joining the company I think fans, and wrestlers most importantly think, ‘holy shit, if Jericho goes there this is the real deal.’ And yes, the television deals that are being talked about, once again nothing is set in stone, but if it’s one of the three that I know people will go okay this is the real deal. ”[1
