Chris Jericho On AEW Contract
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Y2J opened up on his AEW contract and what made him strike a deal with the hot promotion that is yet to take off the ground with a TV deal.
“As the past year progressed, going from New Japan to All In to The Cruise, and kind of seeing how life was on the other side, I realized, like The Young Bucks, like Kenny Omega and these guys, you can make a good living outside the WWE. Then when you have a billionaire getting involved, suddenly you have the biggest offer of my career — by far — I couldn’t say no. For the next three years, it’s AEW. That’s where I’m signed, and that’s the contract that I have.”
