• Chris Jericho Says He Might Have Retired If It Wasn’t For AEW

During a recent edition of Talk Is Jericho, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho discussed what would have happened had he not signed with All Elite Wrestling.

Below is what Jericho said:

“Had I not come to AEW, had the opportunity not been here for me to come to AEW, I might not be wrestling anymore. Had I not had the opportunity to go to New Japan and create the whole ‘Shape’ character, the Clockwork Orange Jericho, I might not be wrestling anymore.

Because the last thing I want to do is go in the ring and have people go ‘wow, he used to be great.’ The moment when I think I didn’t have the best match on the show, or the second best match on the show, or a great match, the best of my capabilities, I will be gone.

I always love what I do. All I ever wanted to do is be in a rock and roll band and be in the wrestling business. And they say if you enjoy what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life and I haven’t. And I’m not going to start now. So I’m very excited to be a part of All Elite Wrestling and to see where it goes.”
