Chris Jericho explains recent AEW releases

In the nineties Chris Jericho fought in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW), as well as internationally in independent Canadian, Mexican, German and Japanese federations. In August 1999 he joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), remaining there, with some breaks, for almost twenty years.

In 2018 he returned to Japan, in New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), while in 2019 he signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling (AEW). Jericho is one of the most titled wrestlers of all time, having won 35 titles across WWF/E, WCW, ECW, NJPW, CMLL and AEW.

He is credited as the first undisputed WWF champion in history, having unified the WWF Championship and WCW Championship at Vengeance in 2001. He is a total seven-time world champion, having once held the WWF Championship and the AEW World Championship, twice the WCW Championship and three times the World Heavyweight Championship.

As seen above, Chris Jericho returned to his popular Saturday Night Special this past weekend to talk about all things pro wrestling and rock n' roll.

Jericho on recent AEW releases

"I think Kenny Omega is very involved in it and I think that Aubrey Edwards, the bane of my existence, is working on it as well," Chris Jericho said.

"I think it's going to be great because we have some people that are so - do you know Aubrey, if you listen to Talk Is Jericho, her job in the past was writing video games and creating them?" - he added. "I don't think we really need any new titles right now per say.

I know that the TNT title is fairly new. Obviously, the FTW title, we don't even really know what that is," Chris said. "I don't think we need [extra] titles. The one thing that sometimes muddles down wrestling companies, and I really found this when RAW and SmackDown split back in the early 2000s, is the World Champion is the World Champion.

You can't have two of them. You know, well there's a RAW champion, there's a SmackDown champion, there's a RAW Intercontinental Champion, a SmackDown US Champion. It's like, that's too f--king many titles.

So, I like the fact that in AEW we have the World title, and now we have the TNT title, and we have the women's title, and the tag team titles for guys. I think it should stay there," Jericho continued." If you want to do women's tag team titles, it's fine, but we need to expand the division a bit.

Other than that, we don't need any other titles. The FTW title even is too much - it doesn't mean anything. Who cares? I don't know if that's just me, but, maybe some people care" - Y2J finished.
