• Chris Jericho Explains Why He Has Signed A 3-Year Contract Extension With AEW

Some fans have been wanting to see Chris Jericho return “home” to WWE, but it won’t be happening anytime soon.

Y2J has signed a 3-year contract extension and will stay in All Elite Wrestling till December 2025 at least.

During an interview with Variety, the current ROH World Champion talked about his new contract.

Below are the highlights:

On why he has signed with AEW for 3 more years:

“I guess the simple answer is ‘Why not?’

Things have been going so well in the company, and I really do feel that this is my company. It’s tattooed on my heart, so to speak. I’ve been here since day one, and there’s really no reason not to be here continuing forward.

When AEW first started, I think basically it was Chris Jericho and a group of very talented people that might not have been as well known.

Within three months that changed and now within three years, we’ve got at least a dozen, maybe two dozen, of our own homegrown stars that came into their own on AEW television.”

On what keeps him going in pro-wrestling:

“I think evolving and always reinventing myself is what keeps me going. And now I have this freedom to be creative, to just do anything that I think is going to work. I’ve never really had that before.

I don’t have to worry about anybody else’s opinions. Obviously, Tony Khan weighs in from time to time, but it’s really just an open canvas to just paint whatever pictures that I want to paint and that makes it so much more fun.”

On being the ROH World Champion:

“It’s very simple. I’ve said I want to desecrate the legacy of Ring of Honor. Well, who’s gonna stop me from doing that? We haven’t found out yet, but when it happens, suddenly they slayed the dragon and they become a bigger star as a result.”
