Postado Janeiro 11, 2019

Chris Jericho was a guest on Busted Open Radio today, taking the time to discuss the behind the scenes happenings as AEW prepares for their second show, Double Or Nothing, and the other major plans ahead of them.

Now his focus will be on AEW and considering his huge experience and unbridled talent as a professional wrestler, Jericho is expected to play a very crucial role in promoting the new league. "A lot of things that have to happen".

"I know that [AEW] is recruiting and trying to get women from all over".

However, Jericho's deal with AEW is not exclusive, as he's still interested in working with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Even further, Jericho hopes his signing inspired people on the independent circuits and in WWE to believe that they can come to AEW and be just as successful as he is. Bill in Wrestlemania less than two years ago was defending the WWE Championship, Bill was a good star, and a great attraction. Beyond Cody, Page, and the Young Bucks, All Elite has signed "The Bad Boy" Joey Janela, Penelope Ford, Frankie Kazarian, Scorpio Sky, Christopher Daniels, Dr. Britt Baker DMD, and Maxwell Jacob Friedman.

"By me joining the company, I think fans and wrestlers most importantly go holy sh*t this is the real deal", he explained. "They want to make a go at this and you know they have a lot of money and they have a lot of capital", he said. "We know them. But your average fan doesn't".
