Chris Jericho has a fine deal with AEW and they are obviously keeping Le Champion very happy. The future seems bright for The Million Viewer Man as well.
While speaking to TV Insider, Chris Jericho dove into what he sees as his long term future with AEW. He wants to help build the company. He said it’s also great that so much pressure to take the spotlight is no longer there as they build new stars.
In the end, Jericho admitted that he can’t see himself going anywhere else.
“One of the reasons I wanted to come to AEW was the challenge of building this organization from scratch. Three months into our television existence we signed a huge extension because of what we had accomplished, which was kind of on my back for the first few months. Now it has been spread to so many other people. All the pressure and spotlight isn’t only on Chris Jericho, which is great. That was always my goal. I’m AEW all-in, all the way at this point. I can’t see myself going anywhere else.”
Chris Jericho admitted that he felt a responsibility to carry the company during those first months of AEW. The company settled in and now has more stars to help carry them into the future. Chris Jericho will likely be a part of AEW for years to come, and it doesn’t seem like he’s looking to change that either.
