Tony Khan will have to take care of the AEW stars whose contract expires in 2024. One of them is the MJF and Chris Jericho. It was Chris who commented on the contract situation for TalkSport: “We’ll see how it plays out,” Jericho said.
“I’m happy with my contract and I know in a year-and-a-half when my contract is done, we’ll have some negotiations to discuss and that’s how it goes”. “Until then, I want to do the best performances that I can, put on the best shows and the best stories, keep the people interested happy, and excited and when that contract is up, I’ll be rewarded for it”.
Chris Jericho on Tony Khan and MJF
Chris Jericho did not want to give his opinion on the situation when the MJF called out Tony Khan on Dynamite. “After 30 years in this business, I’ve learned if it doesn’t have anything to do with me I stay the hell out of it.
I don’t really care,” Jericho said. “If I had an angle with MJF or if I was involved in the contracts I’d be much more interested in it, but I stay out of it, it has nothing to do with me. “Only thing I will say is a contract is a contract.
If every athlete in every sport wanted to be paid more now, then what’s the point of having a contract, you know what I mean?” However, in the end, he had to say some things, and he thinks that the MJF is not as good as he thinks.
“MJF is . He has a lot to learn,” Chris Jericho said. “He’s not as good as he thinks he is and like I said, it really is nothing to do with me but I’m sure he’ll be back. 18 months is a long time to stay at home and that’s Tony Khan’s prerogative.
You’re under contract, you want to stay at home? You can stay at home and not get paid and that’s what happens. We see it happen in other companies and that’s just how it goes. If you didn’t expect that, then why did you sign your contract in the first place?”
