On Saturday afternoon, former SHOOT Project World Champion, Jonny Johnson registered the Nonprofit "Project: HERO".  This information was spotted at the ANN (Alliance for Nevada Non Profit) website, with a short description as well.

"Project: HERO (TM) is an organization dedicated to the prevention of social, criminal and physical injustice.  Its community programs will focus on the many ways Nevada citizens can detect key problems before they happen, as well as how to handle the unfortunate evils that come into our lives."

Johnson is currently listed as the organization's soul director, though a quick Google search lead to a blurb from the Las Vegas Review that implies otherwise (http://www.reviewjournal.com/)

"SHOOT Project star Jonny Johnson has filed paperwork for a new Nonprofit Organization called Project: Hero.  Johnson and his currently unnamed partner will announce further details on the organization "within the next week or so" as quoted by Johnson's agent and manager Peter Lolwen during a very brief press conference.  Johnson has been unavailable for comment."

It also looks like Jonny may have purchased the online wrestling news site, "The NOW Wrestling", after the company recently posted on Twitter... (@NOWWrestling)

"So excited to be a part of the @11HR family!  Cool changes ahead!  #TheNOW"

11 Hour is Johnson's record label, though the company is currently being run by his Ex-Wife, Li Aomori.  Early whispers around the net seem to indicate the site will be rebranded "The NOW" and provide coverage on a wide range of entertainment news stories, not JUST professional wrestling.

There has been no comment from Johnson on this particular transaction either.

If anything develops, we'll do our best to keep people updated!
