Chris Jericho is hailed as one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time and there are many good reasons for that. He is very selfless when needed as Jericho has put over many talent over his career. Now it appears he has a pact with Lance Storm for him to be his last opponent.
Le Champion spent several years in WWE working under Vince McMahon and he gave fans numerous memories throughout his career. Before that, he worked in ECW, WCW and several companies all around the world.
Le Champion has a very close relationship with Lance Storm, as they started their careers around the same time and worked together a lot. While speaking on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Lance Storm talked about wrestling Jericho in what was both of their first match. Storm then revealed that
“That’s sort of the running joke between us because we’ve over the years made a pact because our very first match was against each other. We did like a 10 or a 15-minute draw, I don’t remember which, in Ponoka, Alberta, out here. And I’ve always contended that it would be cool, especially because we know each other still, to do our last match with each other too and have us both bookend our careers.
“I keep joking with them. It’s like, dude, you have to retire at some point, or I’m not going to be able to do it. You know, you’ve got to retire inside the next five or ten years, dude, or I’m not going to be, I don’t want to do it at 75.”
Chris Jericho will not be competing at AEW All Out on August 3rd, which will be the first time Jericho hasn’t been featured on an AEW pay-per-view. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for Jericho.
