• Chris Jericho’s Son Reveals If He Plans On Wrestling
During an interview with Jim Varsallone, Chris Jericho’s son Ash Irvine (age 19) was asked if he plans to follow his legendary father’s footsteps one day and become a Professional Wrestler.
Ash said he doesn’t plan on wrestling and will do his own thing:
“It’s not even an ‘acquired taste’ but it’s always been something I like to think about.
I think deep down, I know it’s just not for me and my grandpa played hockey, my dad does wrestling and I’m not gonna do either. I’m gonna do my own thing, you know?
[Chris Jericho’s] birthday was [November 9th] and everyone was singing him happy birthday and all the stadiums. It was very crazy to see all of that.
Just the respect he commands after doing what he’s been doing for so long and it’s easy to look up to him for me because he does all this insane, crazy stuff that I just sit at home and watch and take for granted because that’s what’s been going on for my entire life.
He’s been doing it for 30 years and I take what he does for granted, but he is truly one of the greatest of all time in wrestling and I hope he gets his respect from the wrestling community when he’s finally wrapped it up.
I don’t know when that will be, hopefully not for a long time. But yeah, it’s always fun to watch AEW and see him out there or my friends will tell me they saw an AEW commercial, my dad was on it. That’s always funny.”
WWF Legend Chris Jericho is currently signed to All Elite Wrestling and is the ROH World Champion (which is now AEW’s sister promotion) right now.
