Chris Jericho is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world, as he has competed all over the world in various promotions, including WWE. He is also proud to be working in AEW and isn’t afraid to show it. He has competed for over three decades and has worked with the best of the best in the pro wrestling world, and doesn’t care what his haters have to say. That being said, Chris Jericho won’t take on a purely backstage role after retiring.

Chris Jericho is more than 50 years old right now and his body has taken a lot of abuse over the years, and he might not be able to wrestle for a very long time anymore.

That being said, Le Champion has managed to keep himself relevant no matter what. In fact, fans are still happy to see him compete and be a regular part of AEW programming.

While speaking with the Daily Star, Chris Jericho talked about retiring in the future. Jericho made it clear that he won’t take up a purely backstage role after retiring.


“I don’t know what the future of me and wrestling is. I could quit tomorrow, or I could quit in six years, I don’t know. I’ll worry about that when it happens. Right now, I do enjoy the backstage role of helping guys and girls out with their interviews and promos.

There’s a lot of stuff I do backstage at AEW. When we have Dynamite, I get there at 1 and leave at 11 or 12 – it’s non-stop, all the time. That’s fun for me, but to exclusively do just that? I don’t know. I still like being part of the show.”

Chris Jericho is also set to square off against Ricky Starks at AEW Revolution on March 5th. We’ll have to wait and see how the match will turn out. For more on this, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world, keep it tuned right here with Ringside News.
