One of the biggest names in sports entertainment today has to be Chris Jericho. Being the inaugural AEW World Champion, he is right now being planted as the prime babyface of the division.
It is really amazing to see that he is doing so much good even at the age of 50. The recognition of the fans for him is increasing day by day and the guy is totally worth it. Chris Jericho’s recent involvements in the Inner Circle faction are being loved by the fans too. No matter whatever he touches, it turns into gold.
Chris Jericho On The Promo That Turned Him Face
Recently, the former six times WWE World Champion talked to Sports Illustrated where he talked about a lot of things including his babyface turn, how Inner Circle is doing an amazing job, and other interesting stuff. Given below are some highlights;
Says he wanted to do the promo that turned his face in front of a live crowd:
Originally that promo was supposed to air a week prior, but we held off. It was going to resonate, it needed to be done in front of a live crowd. You never know when a promo is going to hit, but in front of a crowd, I was willing to bet this was going to be a home run, and it did.
Eyeing a future world title shot with Kenny Omega:
I’m very proud of my work with Omega. Now we can reverse the roles and do Jericho-Omega III for the world title. That’s going to be a lot of fun.
About his new book:
COVID slowed down the printing process, but I’m very proud of this. It’s a whole documentation of my career. It’s for wrestling fans to look at the world of wrestling from 1990 to now through the lens of my career, and it’s a book you’re never going to see like this ever again.
Says he believes this feud with the Pinnacle will make bigger stars out of the Inner Circle:
Whatever I do, I want the Inner Circle involved. This isn’t Jericho and his guys. This is a group of stars that are extremely valuable to the company, and everyone is a bigger star now than before we started the faction. People are going to continue to see that on Dynamite, especially tonight beside Mike Tyson.
Kenny Omega is one of the fewest individuals whom WWE could not sign. And most of the fans do not want to see him in WWE ever. Since WWE’s reputation is going really down for burying talents, Omega’s decision seems right. We hope Chris Jericho along with Omega will do what is best for the fans.
