Speaking on an episode of his Grillin JR podcast released April 27 on, JR revealed details about the production.  

“I’m going to be doing some work with Rock’s company coming up soon,” he said. “We’re going to go back and look at the territories. I’m not sure of the platform that it’s going to be airing on, but I was really happy to have the opportunity to participate. It will be a nice little gig. I think I’m going to be joined by Jake, Michael Hayes, and Ted DiBiase. We’re going to look at the Mid-South territory first, so it should be fun.”

The Rock's Seven Bucks Productions was founded in 2012. The company has worked on projects such as 2019's Fighting with my Family, and the NBC sitcom, Young Rock.  

Ross first started with NWA Tri-State in 1974 working as a referee. The promotion would later be re-branded as Mid-South Wrestling in 1982. Ross remained with the promotion through its renaming as the Universal Wrestling Federation in 1986 and sale to Jim Crockett Jr. the following year.
