Chris Jericho will face Orange Cassidy in a Mimosa Mayhem match at AEW All Out on Saturday.
One year and a half into his run with AEW, Jericho spoke with Sports Keeda to discuss his future with the promotion.
“I never put a time limit on anything that I do wrestling-wise,” said Jericho. “I mean, I thought, back in 2015, it was time to wrap it up and then I got into the angle with Kevin Owens and things became fun again – which led to me going to Japan, which made it even more fun, which led to me coming to AEW, which is the best time I’ve had the business in 10 years, 15 years maybe.
Jericho signed a three-year contract with All Elite Wrestling in January 2019. He is the promotion’s most well-known star and is a former AEW World Champion.
“So I won’t go anywhere,” Jericho explained. “I have no intention of leaving AEW and I have no intention of not wrestling – but even if I don’t wrestle ever again, I’ll just be a commentator after that – which is something that I never really thought about until I had to do it where we filmed four weeks of TV in one day and I just said, “Well, just put me on commentary. That way we don’t have to worry about angles,” because I really had no storyline to talk about at the time, “so let me just do commentary.” Suddenly, that became a thing. So yeah, there’s no reason for me to go anywhere.
I’m very happy in AEW. I’m very creatively stimulated here and I enjoy coming to work every time, every week, every month, whenever it may be, and to me, the fact I’m having as much fun as I’m having and doing the work that I’m doing now after almost 30 years in the business is a testament to the longevity that I have and also to the great environment that AEW is providing for me.”
