Chris Jericho Doesn't Want A Bloated AEW Roster Like WWE's

Chris Jericho doesn't want AEW dragging in every talent that leaves WWE.

WWE's roster depletion is reaching levels never seen before with dwindling viewership, and new competition on the horizon in the form of All Elite Wrestling. Chris Jericho, a man familiar with both of those landscapes, has left for greener pastures before -- famously leaving WCW for WWF in 1999. However, he sees how things are going for WWE, and told Sportskeeda's Gary Cassidy recently that he hopes AEW's roster doesn't become too bloated.

It's different. We're not doing it that way where anyone who doesn't like what they're doing in WWE is automatically guaranteed a job in AEW. We will look at every talent on an individual basis.There's some guys we'd love to have in WWE, and there's some guys we probably wouldn't take. Obviously we haven't even had a show yet and our roster is already very deep.

When you talk about the Double or Nothing show, how many people can you book on that show? If you have 60-70 guys, you end up with the same problem as WWE.

Thus far, we've not heard of any big name leaving WWE for AEW, but Dean Ambrose, now known as Jon Moxley, is on the free agent market.
