• WWF Legend Claims The AEW Roster Isn’t Too Big
Despite most people, wrestling fans and also those who actually work in professional wrestling, agreeing that Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling’s roster is way too big right now, which automatically results in less TV time for a lot of their wrestlers, former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho still claims that isn’t the case.
Here’s what Y2J said on the ‘Superstar Crossover’ podcast:
“Maybe the misconception is that we have too big of a roster. I mean it’s hard to get everybody on TV with only 3 hours a week but it’s important to have a big roster and to have a lot of variety and a lot of different guys on different levels.
You’ve got vets like myself and CM Punk. Then, you’ve kind of got guys in their prime like Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega, then you’ve got the up-and-comers like Daniel Garcia, Sammy Guevara, Darby Allin and Jungle Boy.
It’s really like a grade football team where you have different levels of what you need to have a successful team. That’s why our team has been so successful.”
After wrestling for WWF/WWE since 1999, Jericho signed with AEW in 2019 right from the start and ended up becoming the first ever AEW World Champion.
