• Tony Khan Reveals How Much Weight Chris Jericho Lost After His Blood Clot Issue

In the last few years, some fans made fun of WWF Legend Chris Jericho and his physique.

Jericho, who is 51 years old, was carrying a lot of muscle, but was also carrying a lot of fat and wasn’t clean-cut like he was in his prime.

However, Jericho faced some health issues last year and then came back with a lean physique, where all his abs were visible and some fans even accused him of getting ‘ab implants’.

During an interview on The Masked Man Show podcast, AEW President Tony Khan revealed that Jericho lost 31 lbs:

“At the end of last year, it’s crazy to think that Chris Jericho was out with a blood clot, was actually stuck in England, and couldn’t fly back.

It ended up being the best thing that’s ever happened in Chris’ career, and one of the best things that happened to AEW because Chris came back better than ever, looking better than ever, lost 31 pounds, and looks like 5 or 6 years ago when Chris was really in peak shape.

Now he’s back in that shape. We’ve never seen this Jericho in AEW, which is scary because he’s been in so many of our biggest moments and was our first champion.

He’s probably as strong a wrestler as we’ve ever had in AEW and he’s better than ever right now.”
