Tony Schiavone: Chris Jericho Is A Great Leader Because He Did The Job For Andretti And Starks

Tony Schiavone praises Chris Jericho.

Chris Jericho is on a bit of a losing streak beginning at ROH Final Battle when he lost the ROH World Title to Claudio Castagnoli. In the proceeding weeks, he lost to relative unknown Action Andretti before losing against to Ricky Starks.

In Tony Schiavone's mind, being willing to lose to less established talent, is the sign of great leadership.

"I have so much time for Chris Jericho. What a great leader he is. You know how I know he's a great leader? He did the job to Action Andretti. Did the job to Ricky Starks. That's a great leader. I'll show you how you can lose and still keep your heat," Schiavone said on What Happened When while watching the first-ever episode of WCW Thunder.

Jericho has not won on television since the November 23 episode of AEW Dynamite when he defeated Tomohiro Ishii.

He made a surprise appearance at PWG Battle of Los Angeles night two on January 7. Fans can check out highlights from the appearance by clicking here.
