Chris Jericho Comments On AEW In-Ring Retirement Plans AEW

Chris Jericho has commented on his AEW retirement plans, revealing whether he’s given any thought to stepping away from in-ring competition.

Following John Cena’s 2025 retirement tour announcement at WWE Money in the Bank, one of Cena’s old rivals Chris Jericho was asked whether he was considering hanging up his boots during an appearance on McGuire on Wrestling.

Despite competing for almost 35 years, Jericho has dismissed following in Cena’s footsteps anytime soon, saying he’s really enjoying his current run in AEW and still feels he can compete at a high level.

Jericho said:

“I’ll know when it’s time, you know? I’m really enjoying what I’m doing and I’m still contributing at a high level,” Jericho said. “I can still have the best match on the show on any given night — not every night but any given night.

“And I just really love what we’re doing with AEW right now. So there’s really no rush on that. And when I know, I’ll know. And I think that’s kind of the best way to put it. And for right now, I’m having too much fun and enjoying it and really enjoying building AEW.

“Just five years in, we’ve already gone so far and have so much further to go on the highest of levels. So from that standpoint, we’ll see. And as of right now, as long as I’m having fun and enjoying myself and feeling good in the ring and out, there’s no reason to stop.”

Although Jericho doesn’t have any immediate plans to step away from the ring, he did admit that he’s a fan of the manner in which Cena is wrapping up his career – calling the 2025 retirement tour a “cool way to go out”.
