Chris Jericho has seen it all and done it all in the world of pro-wrestling. Jericho is one of the all time greats of the business and has now taken his talents to AEW. He’s having fun with the experience and recently spoke about the differences between AEW and WWE on Talk Is Jericho. It seems like Jericho has no plans to leave the company anytime soon.
On the differences between WWE & AEW:
“Right off the bat, not to get into the specifics, but things that I have here in AEW I never had in WWE for 20 years. Even something as simple as paying your expenses on the road, like any team does. If the Jaguars go to play a game in St. Louis, the hotel is paid for and ‘Here’s the trip,’ and ‘Here’s the team bus to pick you up and drive you around.’ That’s just the way it is. It’s not even a second thought, right? That’s how it is here in AEW as well, which it’s never like that in WWE.”
“They still go with, ‘Here’s your plane ticket. You’re flying to Detroit. You’re working Detroit, Chicago, Cape Girardeau and St. Louis.’ So you rent your car in Detroit, you drop it off in St. Louis. You got to find your hotel rooms, you got to get a car that’s got a good rate for the drop-off. All this stuff. And those are your expenses and your responsibility to do that. And that’s another thing that I think people are just like, ‘Alright, are you kidding me? You really have to do that?’ So that’s the biggest difference.”
On how long he plans to stay in AEW:
“To me, it’s one of those things where I’m really glad that we were able to take a chance, and get this company off the ground and make it successful. And I have no intentions of ever going anywhere ever again. I like it here, I like working for the Khan family. And it’s been a lot of fun. Which sometimes, it was not as fun in WWE. So it’s definitely a whole different vibe here.”
Chris Jericho is doing some of the best work of his career currently in AEW and that’s saying a lot. It looks like we can look forward to more moments of Jericho from “Le Champion” for years to come.
