Chris Jericho is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling. He has been one of the biggest names for the last 30 years as well.
Bandido impressed people throughout his career and it’s one of the reasons why AEW had him compete against Chris Jericho on Dynamite last week. He had a solid match against Jericho in the main event.
While speaking on Talk Is Jericho, Chris Jericho admitted that he wasn’t too familiar with Bandido’s work before watching some of his matches. He then revealed his goal for the match.
“I love that match with Bandido, it was just as exciting as my first match against Lance (Storm) was 32 years ago.
I had never seen any of his work. I knew that he was kind of hot on the scene and was a guy that had a kind of critical acclaim.
I just wrote down some ideas. My goal was to put this guy over and get this kid a contract, as Booker T used to say, but more importantly to make him look like a main event star.”
Bandido has not agreed to a contract with AEW. We will have to wait and see whether he will end up going AEW or not.
