Chris Jericho is currently one of AEW’s biggest signings. He is well-known for his work as a heel wrestler in the WWE. He started his career at the WCW, but signed with the WWE and spent nearly 10 years as a main event talent there.
He left the WWE and started working for indie promotions in 2017. He joined AEW and worked at their Double or Nothing PPV event. He was on the Busted Open Radio to talk about the time he knew his time was up at the WWE. He stated that he simply didn’t like working with Vince McMahon and his match card decisions.
He stated that his story/feud with Kevin Owens was a good one and should have been a main event at WrestleMania 35. "When you work for Vince, he has a certain way of doing things," said Jericho. "I realized it was the end of the road for me.
In 2017 the best story was Kevin Owens versus Chris Jericho. The whole teaming up, the festival of friendship and breaking up. There was a time that the main event of WrestleMania was penciled in to be Jericho versus Owens for the Universal Title.
I'm not going to blame Brock Lesnar or Goldberg, that Vince decided to change his mind and go with Goldberg versus Lesnar for the title. Now, you have the best story in the company without a title. It doesn't matter, it should not have been the second match on the card.
