Chris Jericho has been part of the professional wrestling world for well over thirty years now. Jericho has proven to be quite selfless when it comes to putting over talent he believes are worthy of it. Be that as it may, some believe Jericho is only burying talent even now. This includes Jim Cornette, who didn’t like how Jericho was booked as the ROH World Champion.

Jericho eventually became the ROH World Champion by beating Claudio Castagnoli and then proceeded to become a fighting champion, defending it regularly on AEW television.

Jericho beat the likes of Colt Cabana, Tomohiro Ishii, and Bryan Danielson during his run. Chris Jericho eventually dropped the ROH World Title to Claudio Castagnoli in the main event of the ROH Final Battle pay-per-view. While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Cornette accused Chris Jericho of burying talent during his run as the ROH World Champion.

“Does anybody else see that it is coincidental or just amazing how this worked out? That Chris Jericho got to defend the ROH World Championship against and defeat in the middle of the ring a different former champion of some description every week on TV for six or eight weeks. On National cable television on TBS with, at least by their standards, a lot of people watching anywhere from 750-900,000 give or take.

But when it comes time to drop it, oh I’ll be happy to drop that title to Claudio on a f*cking Ring of Honor secondary pay-per-view that may not be seen by 75,000 people much less 750,000.”

Chris Jericho also recently put over Action Andretti on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, so man fas will still agree that Jericho is generous to younger talent. We’ll have to see what AEW has planned for Le Champion in the coming weeks.
