Chris Jericho is truly a veteran in the pro wrestling business. Jericho has competed in various promotions all over the world in his career which has spanned more than 30 years. He also doesn’t care about his job title in AEW.
Jericho also debuted for AEW in 2019 and was the first ever AEW World Champion, as he carried the company through the first with a little bit of the bubbly. He has remained one of the mainstays of the company since then.
AEW has been involved in a lot of dramas as of late, mostly due to CM Punk going ballistic on Colt Caban and The Elite and the ensuing backstage brawl afterwards. According to Fightful’s paywall, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley conducted a talent meeting for wrestlers, managers, announcers and referees before AEW Dynamite last week. Jericho was given props for stepping up during this time of crisis.
Danielson, Moxley, and Jericho were heavily praised by those that we spoke to for various different reasons. Jericho — even this past weekend — was credited for stepping up as a backstage presence even more than he previously was. One young AEW talent had said to us that the resolve that Jericho showed at the press scrum after the Brawl Out situation happened was a great example to be set. Moxley and Danielson also seem to be widely adored by the AEW locker room.
Chris Jericho is set to face off against Bryan Danielson on AEW Dynamite next week in the semi-finals of the AEW World Title tournament. We’ll have to see if he wins or not.
