Chris Jericho is one of the top stars in All Elite Wrestling right now, and he recently spoke about AEW’s video game and some of the top AEW Stars on his podcast. His podcast was a Saturday Night Special podcast. Chris Jericho was one of the biggest stars in WWE when he was working for the company.
He was the first ever WWE Undisputed Champion and worked for nearly 2 decades for the company. Jericho was still a top talent and regularly competed with the best WWE stars even before he left the company. During AEW’s launch event, Jericho revealed that he was part of AEW.
Chris Jericho on AEW Video Game and Top AEW Stars
Jericho revealed that AEW referee Aubrey Edwards and EVP Kenny Omega are in charge of getting the video game done properly. Jericho is probably concerned about the video game turning out to be just like WWE’s disastrous WWE 2K series.
"Kenny and Aubrey have a lot to do with the direction of the game. They are spending a lot of time on its development, putting in a lot of time. We want to ensure that the video game is done right and it is not a half-assed effort," said Jericho.
AEW is taking a very long time to develop the game to make sure that the game is free from bugs. He also compared the launch of the game to the launch of the AEW action figures that received positive reviews. "I look at our video game similar to our action figure line.
People have really appreciated the quality of those toys and how cool they look. I think our video game has to follow in the same suit and be something special. Since people have been waiting anxiously for the game, we want to ensure it is really good."
Jericho then named the five AEW superstars that he believes will be big in the future. "I'll go with Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Orange Cassidy, Sammy Guevara, and Thunder Rosa. I'll also throw in Penelope Ford there," said Jericho.
Chris Jericho then praised Sonny Kiss, who joined AEW back in its early days. Sonny Kiss has been doing well with the company. "I really enjoyed working with Sonny [in the tag team match last week on Dynamite]. I've been wanting to work with Sonny since Week 3 of Dynamite when I faced Darby.
He is a very interesting talent, and he has a different vibe from any other character. There's something cool and unique there."
