Chris Jericho is a veteran in the pro wrestling business. Jericho has competed in numerous companies all over the world in his career, which has spanned more than 30 years.
Jericho has been one of the mainstays of AEW television since he debuted back in 2019. Many fans agree that AEW would not have survived had Le Champion not carried the company on his back for the first few months.
During this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara defeated Bryan Danielson and Daniel Garcia in a tag team match. After the show went off the air, Bryan Danielson and Daniel Garcia shook hands and posed in the ring after the loss.
AEW President Tony Khan addressed the crowd before introducing Chris Jericho once again. Chris gave Tony a hug and made his way to the ring. The crowd sang “Judas” by Fozzy as he stood in the ring and then proceeded to address the crowd.
“It’s a special night here for all of us in AEW. For all of you guys our third anniversary as a company. We started right here in Washington DC, how many of you guys were there that first night?
I’ll never forget it, October 2nd, 2019, the 29th anniversary of my first wrestling match.
And here we are three years later, I just had my 32nd anniversary of my first wrestling match and the reason why is because I still love pro wrestling.
And the main reason for that is because of AEW. If AEW didn’t exist, I don’t think I’d still be wrestling and that is the truth.
The reason why we did so good right out of the gate, why we are still doing right now is because of our fans.
We started a revolution in 2019, and it’s just continued to grow and grow because we are all in this together.
That might sound like some sappy bulls*** but it is not, it is the truth. I really feel that all of us are in this together.
We’ve had ups, we’ve had downs, we’ve had everything in between. But the most important thing is, we do this for you and for people watching at home.
We will have to wait and see what AEW will have planned for Chris Jericho in the future as he is still the ROH World Champion.
