Chris Jericho: I Don’t See Any Reason Why I Would Leave AEW At This Point

Chris Jericho does not see a scenario where he leaves All Elite Wrestling.

Since AEW's inception, Chris Jericho has been a prominent face on the promotions programming, being the first ever AEW World Champion. Over the years, Jericho has drawn criticism for how his booking has been handled in AEW, but that has not changed Jericho's unwavering loyalty to All Elite Wrestling.

While speaking to Gabby AF in a recent interview, Jericho said that he does not see a situation where he would leave AEW.

"I don’t really think about that sort of thing, I kind of live in the now. We talk about being 33 years in wrestling, I’m like, ‘Wow, really?’ It doesn’t feel that way because I can still have the best match on any given show. Not every night, but a couple weeks ago, I wrestled Takeshita [Konosuke Takeshita] on Dynamite and it was the best on the show. There are still great moments for Jericho and a lot I can do. I don’t shut the door on anything. To me, WWE isn’t the be all-end all. It was great to be there, I had a great 20 years there, but I’ve had a great going on five years in AEW. I love working here. I love working with, not even for, with Tony Khan. WWE is a completely different animal now than when I left in 2017. It’s been six years. It’s not something I’ve really thought about. I like watching and reading about what’s going on, the buzz that they have, but I also like my company and I helped start AEW. I don’t really see any reason why I would want to leave at this point. Never say that I wouldn’t go, but I have zero plans of that. I like it here and I like the people I work with. I enjoy coming to work every week, which was not always the case in WWE, and it’s weird how that is the case here, but it’s a different vibe and I have a lot of fun here in AEW."

Jericho is currently set to challenge for the FTW Championship on the March 20th edition of AEW Dynamite where he will face off with champion HOOK.

Elsewhere in the same interview, Jericho said his mission in AEW has been to elevate younger talent. You can read more about that here.
