Impact Wrestling Reportedly Offered Huge Money to Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho is currently enjoying the twilight of his career in All Elite Wrestling, where he has been the top star for quite some time.

However, things could have been very different for Y2J had he chosen to sign on a different dotted line after leaving WWE.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Jericho was offered a huge amount by Impact Wrestling, but he turned it down in favor of Tony Khan’s promotion.

“You know Gallows and Anderson didn’t come cheap and they offered a ton of money to Chris Jericho, not Tony Khan money, but they offered him a ton of money to try and get him. If there wasn’t a Tony Khan I don’t know, I mean I think Jericho would have gone to Vince. Maybe he would have gone [to Impact]. Maybe he would have enjoyed that he could call his own shots.”

Jericho left WWE in 2017 and made a switch to New Japan Pro Wrestling for a while before officially signing with AEW in early 2019 as part of their initial roster.
