Chris Jericho Says Tony Khan Wanted To Bring In Guys Like Chris Hero, PCO And Dragon Lee To Face Him

ROH World Champion Chris Jericho took to an episode of his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, where he talked about a variety of topics such as how he wanted to defend his ROH World Title against someone outside of the company as well as how he and AEW President and CEO Tony Khan had ideas of bringing in talents like Chris Hero, PCO and Dragon Lee, but they were not available.

Chris Jericho said:

“I wanted to do another match with an outside guy. We had a couple of ideas, one was PCO, once again, but he wasn’t available. The other idea we had was Chris Hero, but he wasn’t available either, couldn’t do the gig. Same thing with Dragon Lee, another idea that Tony had, but he couldn’t make it.”

Chris Jericho also talked about how he suggested guys like Samoa Joe and Jay Lethal, but they were in other storylines already and they finally ended up with Tomohiro Ishii.

Chris Jericho said:

“I was like, ‘Does anybody want to wrestle me?’ We were thinking that maybe we could use Chris Daniels, I suggested Samoa Joe or Jay Lethal, but they’re in different programs. Finally, Tony says, “What about Ishii?’ ‘That is great.”
