Chris Jericho’s contributions as a pro wrestler need no introduction. He has competed in various promotions all around the globe for three decades. Jericho is also proud to be working in AEW and isn’t afraid to show it. Being veteran in the business, he doesn’t really have much care about what his haters have to say.
Before making his way to AEW, Chris Jericho has competed in almost every major pro wrestling company including WCW, WWE, NJPW and others. He especially made a name for himself in WWE.
Chris Jericho also has a penchant for reinventing himself, which is exactly what he did throughout his time in WWE. Jericho always managed to change with the times and stay relevant through it all. He is also well aware of how different the environments are in WWE and AEW.
While speaking on the “Wrestling with Freddie” podcast, Chris Jericho talked about the backstage environment in WWE and AEW. Jericho claimed that AEW treats their talents one million times better than WWE.
“AEW’s treatment is a million times better than WWE’s ever was because the Khan family are owners of sports teams, so they come at it from a sports stand point. I never had hotels or cars provided ever. In the 30 years of working in the United States, if I did a one off or something, but WWE really never took care of that. On the other hand, AEW does.
Chris Jericho is certainly happy with his time working in AEW and it is unlikely he will ever go back to working for Vince McMahon again.
