• Chris Jericho Reveals If He’ll Ever Return To WWE
During his Saturday Night Special, Old School WWF Legend & current AEW Superstar Chris Jericho was asked if he’ll ever return to WWE.
Below is what Jericho said:
“I loved my time in WWE. I love Vince McMahon. I learned a lot. I had a lot of fun.
But listen, you can’t stay in the same place forever. You become stagnant if you do and I think you need to push yourself to do something new and the fact that AEW was live without a net when I first showed up and all of us have done such a great job of promoting this brand and promoting this company.
Like I said, the Demo God thing is real.”
