Chris Jericho Wouldn't Have Signed With AEW Without A TV Deal

Chris Jericho spoke to Busted Open Radio today about All Elite Wrestling. However, with Jericho's history, he could always be trolling.

WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray, who is a co-host of the show, asked Jericho how big his involvement is for AEW. He hyped up AEW, saying that they're going to change the whole universe.

With Jericho joining AEW, that nearly certainly means that he won't be returning to WWE anytime soon. He said he wasn't there for the money - he's there because he believes in doing something different and new. And your guy in WWE making a decent living but thinks they can do better now goes, 'Wow, If Jericho can go there. In it, he discussed his impact on New Japan Pro-Wrestling's huge upswing in 2018, and explained why he will be able to do the same for AEW. I'm sitting here and analyzing the last two and a half years.

Jericho announced that he's "all in with All Elite Wrestling".


This set off rumours that the former World Heavyweight Champion was set to be revealed as a marquee capture at their Jacksonville rally on Tuesday, but that turned out to be Jericho.

"A lot of that stuff is private but I did have a very amicable conversation with him". The bottom line is the Khan family isn't messing around. They want to make a go of this, and they have a lot of money, and they have a lot of capital, they have a lot of business acumen in sports and entertainment. On the cruise, he partnered with The Young Bucks in a loss to Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes and Marty Scurll. I think most people would say, "Yeah, he'll talk to other places, but he's probably going to end up in WWE".

He said that he wouldn't have signed if there wasn't a strong TV deal on the table.
