Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho made an appearance on Busted Open Radio to talk about his signing with All Elite Wrestling.

Below are the highlights:

On his involvement in AEW possibly bringing in more wrestlers to the company:

“By me joining the company I think fans and wrestlers most importantly go, ‘Holy sh*t this is real.’ Because if Jericho went there this is real. Because a lot of people don’t know Kenny or Cody or The Bucks. We know them, but your average fan doesn’t. Your guy in the WWE making a decent living, but thinks they can do better now knows, ‘Wow, Jericho can go there I can go there too.’”

On if AEW has a TV deal:

“Yes, the television deals are being talked about. Nothing is set in stone, but the couple I know about are ones where people would go, ‘This is the real deal.’”
