Chris Jericho was a mainstay in WWE for a very long time and maintained a great relationship with them even when he was in a hiatus from the company. However, that time might have come and gone.
On the day Chris Jericho announced that he signed with AEW, WWE took his image out of their opening graphic. Now it looks like he is officially blackballed from WWE because Superstars aren’t even allowed to appear on his Talk Is Jericho podcast as Y2J explained on a recent episode.
“I’ve talked with him a couple of times but I’m kind of public enemy number 1 there now. I’ve been kind of removed from the annals of history.”
“I asked the other day if I could have a couple of their guys on my podcast to promote Mania and I was told ‘no, it’s not appropriate because you’re in AEW.’ I am banned from WWE.”
“I know that they had to take some videos down from UpUpDownDown of me playing. They edited some stuff from the Edge and Christian Show that had my name on it.”
Jericho is locked into a multi-year deal with AEW. Perhaps his status with WWE will change at that time. For now it appears as though WWE just isn’t going to have anything to do with Y2J.I
