You never know where Chris Jericho will show up next and just because he’s the IWGP IC Champion doesn’t mean he won’t be appearing somewhere else. Since he’s close to the head honchos at Impact Wrestling, there seems to be an even bigger chance that he might be making a big move over there.
Jericho recently spoke to The Wrestling Perspective where he said that he’s open to any idea he can sink his teeth into. Even though he hasn’t spoken to Impact Wrestling about coming in, he did say that’s he willing to go for anything at this point because it’s such a great time to be an indie guy.
“So I haven’t spoken to anybody at TNA and I’m not saying I would ever go there but I’m not saying I wouldn’t and I’m not saying I wouldn’t go to WWE or I wouldn’t go to New Japan or go wherever,” Jericho said. “To me, it’s all about helping to change the business in a lot of ways and if there’s a way to do it by being a little bit of a ‘revolutionary’ then why not? Let’s go for it, man.
“This is show business, it’s entertainment, it’s the Wild West. There’s no rules and nobody says that you have to work in the WWE or you don’t have to work there. Independent wrestling at this point in time is bigger than it’s ever been. And that’s a good place for me to be in, for James Ellsworth to be in or Kenny Omega, everybody else that’s kind of ‘independent guy.’
“Now’s the time to be independent because you really can go make a real good living and make a difference outside of the WWE bubble which hasn’t been something that you could do for years since the highlight of WCW back in ’98-’99. So it’s an exciting time for everybody involved.”
Ony time will tell what Jericho does next, but it wouldn’t be surprising for him to make a few more huge headlines in the next few months because that’s usually how he rolls.
