Chris Jericho is a veteran of the business. Jericho has been wrestling for well over 30 years and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. He also underwent an awesome physical transformation recently. It is worth mentioning that Jericho returned to AEW programing after taking some time off.

Jericho looks much leaner, perhaps the most lean he’s ever been in his legendary wrestling career. His physique has been the talk of the wrestling world of late. During AEW Unrestricted Podcast, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan praised Jericho for the work he put into getting in shape.

“… I just think Chris has come back – also, we talked about Jon Moxley coming back looking better than ever. Jericho looks better than he ever has in AEW. Better than he did when we started. Better than he did when he was a world champion.”

“He had a little health scare and came back and he came back looking better than ever. I think he was out for a little bit, getting healthy and I think for Chris, like this is not only the best he’s ever looked but when we’ve seen him in the ring, he looked very sharp.

“I think it took him a few minutes to get his footing back against Santana and Ortiz, but you could see this is to me physically, probably the best Chris has looked. And now that he’s gotten his bearings back in the ring, I just think with Jericho looking like he does and you know, talking the way he’s been talking, this is a really interesting match.”

Jericho is set to take on Eddie Kingston in a singles match at the company’s Revolution pay-per-view (PPV) event. AEW Revolution takes place this Sunday (March 6) at the Addition Financial Arena in Orlando, Florida.
