During his reign as AEW World Champion, Chris Jericho worked with a number of young stars. Darby Allin and Jungle Boy both got the chance to work with Le Champione, but one of the most successful was Scorpio Sky.
At the time, Sky pinned Chris Jericho in a tag match to earn a title shot. While Jericho was able to retain, it helped Sky’s stock as a singles competitor. Now, Sky wants another match. Here are his comments from his interview with Fightful:
“The match I felt was really good for its time. It would be so much better today because I just wasn’t a singles wrestler at that time. I’d been doing tag teams, whether it be two-on-two or three-on-three for pretty solid a couple of years at that point. So, I was as rusty as it got when it came to singles matches. So, I wasn’t at my best when it came to my wind or when it came to just executions of my moves and that intensity level. I thought it was good, but I’m always a critic of myself. So, Jericho liked it and he told me that he really enjoyed working with me and he could work with me any time. That was a great compliment.
He talked about like if this were the old days when you’d go on the road, he was like, ‘I could work with you every night on a tour.’ I was like, ‘That’s really cool to hear.’ Hopefully, him and I will get to get in there again. ‘Cause I think I’m evolving and getting better now. I’m still not where I want to be. I guess I probably never will be where I want to be because you’re always chasing that next step. But, I think I’m a lot better as a singles wrestler now than I was then.”
Since his match with Jericho, Sky has transitioned into more of a singles role. He has primarily competed on Dark in recent months but did have a TNT Championship match with Cody on Dynamite.
