Chris Jericho has over three decades of experience under his belt and is undeniably a seasoned veteran in the industry. With his wealth of knowledge and expertise, Jericho undoubtedly recognizes his worth and value within the wrestling community. He has been feuding with Action Andretti for a while now, but it seems that will be coming to an end soon.
Before making his way to AEW, Chris Jericho competed in almost every major pro wrestling company including WCW, WWE, NJPW and others. He especially made a name for himself in WWE.
Chris Jericho joined AEW in January 2019 following his departure from WWE in 2018 and subsequent return to NJPW. He has competed in numerous feuds during his time in AEW.
His most recent feud has seen him engaging with Ricky Starks and Action Andretti. While speaking on the In The Kliq podcast, Le Champion made it clear that his feud with Action Andretti will end after AEW Revolution.
“A week before Dallas, I said ‘Okay, we’ll see you this week.’ Then he came into my dressing room and I said ‘I’m working with you tonight.’ He goes ‘Oh my god, this is great.’ Then I say ‘and you’re going over.’ This kid, he was cool, but you could see his face is like are you f*cking kidding me? Here’s the story. We’re gonna treat this like a squash match. I’m just gonna beat you up. It’s gonna be like a squash match you’ve saw 1000 times before until I hit you with a Codebreaker, and then you’re gonna kick out and that’s where the fun is gonna start. It was a great moment, it’s the biggest upset in pro wrestling history. It’s one of the greatest moments in Dynamite history, but how do you follow it up? I had an idea, we’ll start with Starks but Andretti will still be involved and we’ll have him involved with Sammy [Guevara] and Danny [Garcia] and now he’s a guy. He’s a guy on the show.
After Revolution, our story is probably gonna be done for now, Action Andretti and Jericho. By the way, I never got the win back. I don’t need to. I never need to beat Action Andretti ever, nor will I ever. I will never beat Action Andretti, I’m telling you that right now. Now he has to go out on his own, but we had a great three month story. It was a great start for this kid. Now the dust is gonna settle, it’s kinda up to him.”
Chris Jericho is 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, as fans want Ricky Starks to come out on top.
