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
Many people consider Chris Jericho as one of the all-time greats and it is not difficult to understand why. Fans continue to applaud Jericho for constantly reinventing himself over the years.
For the past few weeks, Chris Jericho has been feuding with 2point0 and it has also been sowing the seeds for an eventual feud with Jericho and Eddie Kingston. While speaking on Wrestling with Freddie podcast, Chris Jericho hinted at a dream match with Eddie Kingston in AEW.
“There are two that I would take. One that I am looking forward to now that will happen is the story we’re building with Eddie Kingston in AEW. That’s a guy from day one, the moment he walked in, I said ‘that’s a superstar, he’s gonna be a huge babyface. I like his style it’s very hard-hitting.’
He doesn’t look like a typical wrestler, he just looks like a tough guy at the bar, but his promos are above and beyond. That’s why I kind of pick and choose who I’m going to be working with, and also it has to fit in with plans that Tony Khan has and what the guys have. But the Eddie one was really something cool to me. I also deal in long-term stories, so nothing is set in stone, but that is one I’m really looking forward to that will happen.”
Eddie Kingston suffered an injury earlier this month and is expected to make her return within the next three weeks. We will have to wait and see how Jericho and Kingston’s feud will be booked once Kingson returns.
