Although Chris Jericho was widely expected to be one of All Elite Wrestling’s biggest signings, the vast majority of people weren’t expecting him to announce that he would be joining at the “Double or Nothing” rally held in Jacksonville yesterday.
Jericho stunned the gathering crowds with his appearance, adding to an already stacked and growing roster which now consists:
- Young Bucks
- Hangman Page
- Brandi Rhodes
- Britt Baker
- Joey Janela
But to be an official employee, you have to sign a contract, and we now have proof that he has done just that.

Thankfully Jericho did not then proceed to put Tony Khan through the table. This isn’t WWE, remember?
There are sure to be more announcements regarding names joining AEW in the coming weeks and months, and we will bring you news on every signing as it breaks.
