During an interview with Bleacher Report Live, AEW’s Jon Moxley revealed that he believes the current AEW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho could be the greatest wrestler of all time.
Moxley and Jericho have quite the history together, dating back to when they were both in the WWE. Now, Moxley is set to challenge for Jericho’s title during AEW Revolution this February 29.
During the interview, Moxley talked a bit about how motivated he is to beat Jericho and take the championship. According to him, it’s not just about winning the championship but also knowing that he can beat a competitor like Jericho.
“Chris Jericho is really making a case for being the greatest of all time. He’s done it in the ’90s, the 2000s and the last two decades. He’s doing it again. He’s doing something completely new and breaking new barriers still even in 2020 with AEW,” said Moxley.
“So let’s call Chris Jericho the greatest of all time, and it’s not every day you have to wake up and beat the greatest of all time. That’s a tall task, but I look at this guy, and I just know in my heart this guy’s not gonna pin me, he’s not gonna submit me [and] he’s not gonna knock me out. I’m gonna beat him, so it’s just about executing and keeping my eye on the ball getting the job done,” he declared.
