• Chris Jericho’s Body Is Breaking Down & Might Not Have Another Year Left In Him, Says Former WWE Superstar Ryback
During a recent edition of Conversations With The Big Guy podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback talked about how current AEW World Champion Chris Jericho is carrying the entire company on his shoulders and how Jericho’s body is breaking down under all this stress at his age.
Below is what Ryback said:
“I think physically and I look at the show and I ask myself whether Chris Jericho has another year in him. I don’t know because he is going hard in life and this is at the end of him going hard his entire career.
Chris Jericho’s body has altered within the last six months in my opinion. The guy is a f***ing legend, but the stress he is going through, at this stage of his career they have put everything on his shoulders with not a lot of surrounding pieces as far as what he has achieved in pro wrestling.
Jon Moxley is great but none of us have had the tenure that Jericho has and the longevity and you look at the guy’s body to me it looks like his body is starting to break down now.
He held it together for so long and still looks physically amazing and he can still go, but you don’t want to keep that stress on him for a long period of time because you want to get more out of him because he has a lot on his shoulders.
He is the man, I love Chris. I just bought some of his ‘Bubbly’ but you need to give the guy some help with the pieces that they do have.”
