Chris Jericho has been around the pro wrestling business long enough to know what works. He realizes that the AEW World Title is just a prop unless the champion carries their weight in the ring.
The Aquarian spoke to Chris Jericho where he opened up about the fact that he often pokes fun at himself on AEW television. He is Le Champion and he knows what works. The fans have also established a rapport with him and there is a lot of history there. So, you can’t take yourself too seriously.
“You can never take yourself too seriously. Especially in this business. People don’t like that. Plus, if I can’t insult myself, who can I insult? I like to bust my own balls. People respond to that,”
Chris Jericho will continue as a top heel with AEW for the foreseeable future. He is arguably the top name in the company right now and he achieved that status by having a unique and professional mindset about the pro wrestling world. He is also never afraid to try something new.
