• “Change the course of wrestling history” – WWF Legend On Why He Joined AEW

Old School WWF Attitude Era Legend Chris Jericho was recently interviewed by ESPN, where he talked about his decision to join Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in 2019, where he became the inaugural AEW World Champion.

Jericho stated that he joined the promotion to change the course of professional wrestling history.

Here’s what Y2J had to say:

“Do you realize how much money it costs to start a wrestling company? Do you realize how hard it is to find fresh, exciting talent that hasn’t been around the block? Do you realize how hard it is to get a television deal with a network?

Tony Khan did realize that and after talking to him I thought, ‘Wow, there might actually be something to this’, and that’s kind of what really started attracting me to it.

That really appealed to me to start working with Tony because I knew if AEW was a success, we could change the course of wrestling history.”

After runs with ECW (1996) and WCW (1996-1999), Chris Jericho wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (later WWE) from 1999 to 2005 and again from 2007 until 2010 and from 2011 till 2018.

In late 2001, he became the first ever Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, thus unifying the by far most prestigious World Titles on the planet, the WWF Championship and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.
