Chris Jericho made his wrestling debut in 1990, taking on Lance Storm in Canada.
Since then, Jericho has wrestled all over the world for every major company throughout history and has found success everywhere he's gone. Jericho has done it all in wrestling and has managed to remain fresh in the eyes of many fans and his peers through constant reinvention.
Jericho celebrated his 30 years in wrestling on the October 7, 2020 episode of Dynamite, which he says was a call made by Tony Khan.
"We just had my 30th-anniversary show on AEW. It was Tony Khan's idea, it wasn't something I came up with. I don't ever look at myself like, '30 years in the business, let me Barry Horowitz myself [pat myself on the back],'" Jericho told Steve Austin on Broken Skull Sessions.
Discussing the longevity of his career and his overall run, Jericho said, "When you look at it and really think about it, at the risk of sounding egotistical, I don't think there is anybody that will ever have another career like mine ever again. When I started, it was one foot in the old school. It was different then. I've seen all of it and I've worked everywhere. I know that history and that side of it and there is so much I can remember that people don't experience anymore and probably never will again. I guess the answer is 'yes,' I guess it's one of the greatest runs ever; longevity, diversity, reinvention, evolution. All of those things that I've used to still be relevant to this day to where we did change the business to where we started AEW. I take great pride in that."
Jericho remains a focal point on AEW television as the leader of The Inner Circle.
The Inner Circle will clash with The Pinnacle on the May 5 episode of AEW Dynamite in a Blood & Guts match.
