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. In fact, Jericho likes being a middleman between Tony Khan and the AEW locker room.

Prior to joining AEW, Chris Jericho had already established himself as a veteran of the professional wrestling industry, having competed in virtually every major wrestling promotion, including WCW, WWE, and NJPW, among others. Notably, he gained significant recognition during his time in WWE.

After leaving WWE in 2018 and briefly returning to NJPW, Jericho joined AEW in January 2019. Since then, he has engaged in numerous high-profile feuds and matches, showcasing his skills and experience in the ring.

As someone with over 32 years of experience in the wrestling industry, Chris Jericho has developed a keen understanding of what it takes to succeed both in and out of the ring. One of the skills he has honed over the years is the ability to act as a mediator in the locker room, helping to foster a positive and productive environment for all wrestlers.

Jericho recognizes that the wrestling industry has undergone significant changes over the years, and his wealth of experience has allowed him to adapt to these changes and gain a unique perspective that he can use to help his fellow wrestlers. Whether it’s offering advice, diffusing tensions, or simply lending an ear to listen, Jericho understands the importance of maintaining a supportive and respectful locker room atmosphere.

While speaking on the In The Kliq podcast, Chris Jericho talked about the current vibe in the AEW locker room and made it clear that he loves being a middleman between Tony Khan and the AEW locker room.

“Pro wrestling is pro wrestling. There’s always going to be pros and cons all the time. What I can do now, after 32 years on the job, is — I have the respect of the locker room because I give respect to everybody. Everybody that puts on a pair of boots. I respect. I don’t care if it’s your first match or your 1,000th match; I appreciate you. I understand there’s different personalities, man. This is wrestling. We’re all gypsies, tramps, and thieves, but guess what?

I speak gypsies, tramps, and thieves,” said Jericho. “I also speak billionaire. I worked for Vince McMahon for 20 years. I worked for Tony Khan for four years. I know how to talk to my boss. I know how to get the frustrations of the locker room across to the boss and how to get the frustrations of the boss to lock the locker room. So I enjoy that role, being the middle person. Also, sometimes people need to hear, ‘Hey, shut up and do it.’ Okay. There are terms and advice and words that I’ve learned, but like, we work for somebody. If you work at any job, ever, in the world today, sometimes you’re gonna have to do stuff that you don’t want to do.”

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. Do you like Chris Jericho? Are you looking forward to his upcoming match? Sound off in the comments!
