• Chris Jericho Explains Why He Wants To Bring Roman Reigns To AEW
Former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho was recently interviewed by Whatculture, where he spoke on a variety of topics.
He talked about AEW signing WWE talent and which one talent from WWE is on top of his wishlist.
Below are the highlights:
On AEW only signing selected released WWE talent:
“This is not a place where anybody in the WWE can show up. We are very selective on who we take and while there is the whole rash of layoffs couple of months ago, and I don’t think, and nothing against anybody involved, these are all very talented, there is nobody on that list we are looking at, maybe somebody might pop in, but we’re not what WCW did in the 90s or what Impact did.”
On which WWE talent he’d love to have in AEW:
“Obviously, what’s my wishlist? I’d put Roman Reigns at the top of that wishlist for anybody because not only he’s a great worker, he’s such a cool guy. If they just let him be him, he’d be the biggest star in the industry for real. So that’s a guy I would love to get my hands on for sure.”
