Chris Jericho Says His Goal And Mission When He Came To AEW Was To Build As Many Stars As They Could

Top All Elite Wrestling Star Chris Jericho recently spoke with Joe Baiamonte of Sporf on a variety of topics such as how AEW World Champion MJF, Darby Allin, “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry and “The Spanish God” Sammy Guevara were always earmarked to be stars, which is why he worked with all four of them.

Chris Jericho said:

“That’s why I worked with Max for a year and why I’ve had Sammy with me pretty much since he came into the company, with the exception of a few months. Those guys were always earmarked to be stars. And Darby and Jungle Boy too, I worked with them the first few months of AEW’s existence and realised they were both amazing.”

Chris Jericho also spoke about how they have done a great job in building the four pillars of AEW and how the most important thing was to have them in the main event of tonight’s Double or Nothing and to see them flourish.

Chris Jericho said:

“It’s funny when I get buried online for ‘burying’ the young guys, it’s like you really don’t understand what I’m doing and don’t even really watch the show because it’s been the exact opposite of that. And I think we’ve done a great job in building these guys. To have four of them in the main event and to see how they’ve all flourished as talkers, because they can always wrestle but character and talking is the most important thing. So I really enjoy that side of it, to see those guys in that spot.”

Chris Jericho then spoke about how his main goal and mission when he came to AEW was to build as many stars as they could.

Chris Jericho said:

“My goal and mission when I came to AEW was to build as many stars as we could, quickly, because you only have a short window of time that people are interested in this new promotion. Chris Jericho may have got them to the show but it can’t all be about me. Yeah I’m proud of them. And they’ve earned it. No one deserves it. ‘You deserve it’ is my least favourite chant. It should be ‘You earned it’, because they’ve earned that chance and that spot and they’ve done a great job with it.”
