We never know what to expect in the unpredictable world of pro-wrestling. Nowadays, a number of new rivals have arrived to give tough competitions to the WWE. So retaining superstars would be extremely hard for the largest pro-wrestling promotion in the world. The revelation of All Elite Wrestling promotion might have been the biggest threat to this promotion in a long time. So can there be a chance that they might lose one of their biggest draws to this rival brand?
One of the veteran pro-wrestlers thinks so. He is none other than Chris Jericho who has already been part of the All Elite Wrestling brand. Recently he let us knew his pledge of facing Brock Lesnar under his new employer’s banner. As much as this possibility seems impossible, Y2J is quite hopeful that there could be a chance. In a recent tweet, the GOAT has claimed the same.
Chris Jericho made the following tweet looking forward to a match against Brock Lesnar,
“Intimidation and fear go a LONG way in our business guys. But let’s be honest, @BrockLesnar needs to pull up his pants and lose the gut… the dream is over dude. I don’t play by the script… @wwe @AEWrestling”
The former six-time world champion in the WWE has signed a potential multi-year deal with the All Elite Wrestling promotion. It means he has no chance of returning to the WWE, any time soon. This vanquishes the chances of seeing a match against Brock Lesnar unless he leaves joins AEW in the future. It looks an almost impossible dream match for the fans. But some unthinkable cross-brand matches did take place in recent times which still raises the hopes.
In a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the possibility of seeing a Brock Lesnar vs. Chris Jericho match. He pointed out how Y2J previously posted a cryptic tweet about Kenny Omega a couple of years ago. Later this match became reality at last year’s Wrestle Kingdom event. So the ‘ayatollah of rock n Rolla’ might have something in-store.
Vince would not mind to let borrow the beast incarnate to another brand for a special attraction. So we just can’t wipe out the chances, at all. Here’s more from the wrestling journalist, (courtesy wrestlingnews.co)
“I believe that Vince will pay anything not to lose Brock because we’ve seen it with UFC and I think it will be even stronger with AEW. Brock’s number is so high but who knows? Who knows, it would be a coup. Put it this way, Chris Jericho wants a match with Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho has a lot of sways. That doesn’t mean a deal is gonna be done that’s a stupid deal but who knows.”
