Chris Jericho made it clear that he will pick a new partner after Kenny Omega went out of action with diverticulitis. Jericho has a guaranteed AEW World Tag Team Title shot, and he is going to take it. The big question remains of who he will pick to team with.
Enzo Amore’s name was dragged into a promo battle between the AEW Tag Team Champions and the Golden Jets. Enzo realized that, and he appreciated the nod. That won’t pull him into AEW.
Enzo took part in a virtual signing with K&S WrestleFest, where he addressed the idea of showing up in AEW as Chris Jericho’s partner. He said that is not in the cards, which must disappoint some fans of the realest guy in the room.
“Would I? That is definitely something that is not in the cards right now because I am a free agent. I don’t know what the deal is over there, I don’t know who is doing what, who has the pencil, I don’t know who is wrestling who. I just know that I’m damn proud of Big Bill holding the tag team titles. The last thing I would ever want to do is break his leg and take it away from him. I love that guy. I’m pulling for him, I’m rooting for him. I’m not trying to beat him up. Everyone knows I would beat him up, I would beat the hell out of him. [Smiles, implying sarcasm]. Seriously, Big Bill, how unbelievable is that story. What he overcame, where he’s at right now, nobody is happier than I am to see the success of that man.”
AEW has a lot of things in the pipeline, and Chris Jericho’s mystery partner will be something that fans will pay close attention to. Only time will tell who AEW picks for that role, but there are plenty of options out there.
We know that Enzo Amore will not be Chris Jericho’s partner. We can only hope that Enzo Amore gets another opportunity to spit some lines into a microphone again soon.
