Chris Jericho Wouldn't Have Signed With AEW Without A TV Deal

Cody Rhodes

Chris Jericho was announced as one of the big additions to the All Elite Wrestling roster at the Double or Nothing rally in Jacksonville, Florida on Tuesday.

"Nothing is set in stone [but] the three that I know of are all ones that people [will say] ok this is the real deal".

You have to remember as well Jericho said past year he would feel uneasy about working with another brand in the States due to his respect for former boss Vince McMahon, although the fact he showed up at ALL-In suggested he may have gone back on his word long before signing with AEW.

"Yes, the television deals that are being talked about".

Cincinnati Bengals Will Likely Hire Zac Taylor As Their New Head Coach
The Cardinals hired Kingsbury, and now it looks like the Bengals are primed to hire a direct understudy of the Rams head coach. He moved on to Los Angeles to coach the wide receivers in 2017 and was named the quarterbacks coach in 2018.

While talking about name recognition, Jericho inserted Kenny Omega's name with the rest of the already signed members of AEW and claimed that he adds another level of legitimately to the promotion.

"By me joining the company, I think fans and wrestlers most importantly go holy sh*t this is the real deal", he explained.

What do you think the future of Chris Jericho in AEW will be?

AEW is the brainchild of another former WWE star Cody Rhodes - son of wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes - and The Young Bucks, an Indie sensation tag team. We know them, but your average fan doesn't. It came down to AEW offering him a better deal, which allowed Jericho to work his cruise and with New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
