• Chris Jericho Wants Roman Reigns, Ricochet & 3 Others In AEW
Former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho answered fans’ questions once again on his Saturday Night Special.
A fan asked him to name the wrestlers he’d like to bring to AEW.
Jericho named Roman Reigns and Ricochet from WWE, Will Ospreay and Kota Ibushi from NJPW and Don Callis from IMPACT Wrestling.
“Roman Reigns, Will Ospreay, Richochet, Ibushi, I say, let’s do Ibushi maybe and Don Callis. How’s that?”
Reigns being there was expected, as Le Champion has always said that The Big Dog is on top of his wishlist when it comes to signing talent to AEW.
