• Chris Jericho Doesn’t Want To Return To WWE, Says AEW Is Close To Having Fans Back At Events

During Chris Jericho’s Saturday Night Special on Facebook, former WWE wrestler and current AEW wrestler Chris Jericho was asked by a fan if he wants to return WWE.

Le Champion said that he doesn’t plan to return to WWE anytime soon.

“A. I can’t, I’m still under contract for the next little while. B. I don’t think I would be into doing a one-out, a one-off for anybody, especially WWE. I hope to be with AEW for a long, long, long time. So I hope that answers your question.”

Jericho was recently interviewed by WrestleZone, where he talked about the return of fans at AEW events.

He said that the company is close to having fans back at their events.

“For us, to have a crowd ready to come back when we’re ready to have them. I’d love to see that soon.”

He mentioned that stand-up comedians are doing shows with one-third capacity in different states, and he also has a plan for AEW to have fans at events.

“For us in Jacksonville at Daily’s Place, it’s a 6,000 seat amphitheater. You could put 1,000 people in there and space them out six feet accordingly and have 1,000 people. I think we’re just waiting on the okay from the governor on that. I say, hell, start with 100 people, start with 200 people, whatever the rule is. I think we’re almost there because if stand-up comedy has it there’s no reason why wrestling can’t have it either.”

Jericho added that AEW has the right venue with the ideal seating capacity to make it happen so he thinks it’s just a matter of time.
