Chris Jericho is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling, having competed in various promotions all over the world for over three decades now. Jericho is also proud to be working in AEW and always makes that fact clear. It seems Jericho was criticized for his ego recently as well.
Jericho has managed to keep himself relevant throughout the years by constantly changing up his gimmick in meaningful ways, thereby gaining new nicknames in the process.
Chris Jericho had a terrific back and forth promo with Eddie Kingston on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, which certainly got many fans invested in their feud.
While speaking on his podcast, Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette gave props to Jericho and Kingston for their promo. Cornette then criticized Jericho for hurting the promo segment due to his oversized ego.
“Jericho even did a good job at this, especially if he will be turning heel and not just being a wise a**, and Kingston was good, though they made a mistake at the end that I think could have been corrected. I think it may have been due to Jericho’s outsized ego as thinks he’s the star and the straw that stirs the drink. But when Kingston said do not give the Mimosa match, Chris, just do not give me the foolish Chris Jericho, give the Jericho that did this and did that. He basically said give me the Jericho we all came to respect and not. That should have been the last line.”
Chris Jericho is set to square off against Eddie Kingston at AEW Revolution on March 6th. We will have to wait and see who will come out on top in the match, as fans really want to see Kingston win.
