Chris Jericho Reponds to Fans
One fan spoke about Jericho’s band, Fozzy performing at Sturgis 2020. According to many it was a COVID-19 superspreader concert.
Many people believe that COVID spread massively during that rally. Fans also criticized Jericho for supporting President Donald Trump. Jericho called out fans and people that wished Trump to die after he contracted Covid-19.
He also liked a few tweets from President Trump that fans noticed. "Hi. F**k off. Not in the mood today dips**t," he tweeted in response to the fan. Jericho is set to fight Luther and Serpentico. Jake Hager will be Jericho’s partner for that match.
Chris Jericho is one of the few professional wrestlers in the world that support Trump openly. In WWE, many wrestlers who may support Trump remain silent as they may receive a huge backlash from fans, even though Vince McMahon is friends with President Donald Trump.
Vince’s wife, Linda McMahon was actually part of the Republican party. However, most wrestlers in WWE are siding with Biden. Even WWE Legend, Dwayne Johnson has shown support for Biden and encouraged his fans to vote for Biden.
Chris Jericho is still a very active wrestler and works as a full-time AEW Wrestler. He revealed that he would have quit wrestling after he left WWE had he not received an offer from AEW. According to reports, AEW gave Jericho the best deal of his life.
Jericho also left WWE as he wanted to try something different. Jericho has more creative control in AEW. Other wrestlers are given creative control as well and are not given scripted promos. AEW pays it wrestlers well and better than most indie wrestling promotions.
