Former WWE Champion and current AEW star Chris Jericho recently spoke about his possible retirement and how he wants to face his goodbye from the world of wrestling. The Canadian wrestler has revealed that he doesn't believe in farewell matches but would like his last fight to be special.
For this reason, Jericho wants to play his last fight with his longtime friend Lance Storm: together with these Jericho started his career in wrestling. At the same time the wrestler explained that, despite his 49 years, he has no intention of retiring in the short or medium term.
Here are his words: "For the farewell match surely many would like to participate and I will tell you, at the cost of losing 200 thousand dollars, I would like to finish my career exactly the same way I started it, that is against Lance Storm.
I am aware at the same time that the meeting might suck, but Lance is a great person. I'm 49 years old and I don't know when I'll retire, maybe I'll change my mind about it but I'd like this ending."
