Chris Jericho’s experience as a 30-year veteran in the pro wrestling business has greatly helped everywhere he has gone. He has especially helped AEW in many ways. Mick Foley also credited himself for an interesting reason.

Le Champion has competed all over the world, in promotions such as WCW, ECW and other independent wrestling promotions. He signed with WWE in 1999 with his iconic Y2J gimmick.

Mick Foley recently took to Twitter and responded to Jericho’s tweet regarding their attendance at a show at the Ryōgoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo. Foley was so impressed by Jericho, that he recommended Jericho to Paul Heyman.

Definitely a real story. I did attend the Sumo show with @MasanoriHorie – and based on that amazing match, gave @IAmJericho my highest recommendation to @HeymanHustle Jericho attended an #IWAJapan show a week later – and we hit it off instantly.


Jericho is currently feuding with Eddie Kingston on AEW television. It remains to be seen how the storyline will progress in the coming weeks.
