Chris Jericho Reveals Whether He’d Be Interested In AEW EVP Role AEW

Chris Jericho has revealed whether or not he’d be interested in working for AEW in an Executive Vice President role.

There’s currently some uncertainty surrounding the futures of EVPs Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, with the trio suspended and stripped of the AEW Trios Championship following a backstage altercation after CM Punk’s verbal tirade during the All Out media scrum.

Speaking with Inside The Ropes ahead of All Out, Jericho noted that he doesn’t need a backstage title to contribute to the company.

Jericho said:

“I don’t need a job title to help the company. I do it every day. Whenever I show up to TV, it’s a constant. Constant working from two o’clock until the show is over. If I’m wrestling or not. That’s the way it should be. There’s not a lot of guys that have been doing this as long as I have. In our locker room there’s Sting, there’s Dustin Rhodes and then there’s me.

“I’m one of the original AEW guys, probably was very integral in getting the company off the ground in a lot of ways. So I don’t have a problem with giving advice and helping people. It’s what I’m there for. It’s part of my job. Like I said there’s nothing to be written on a business card, you know, Director of EVP or whatever the fuck it is, who cares. I’m Chris Jericho. That trumps all of that.”

Jericho has been with AEW since the company’s inception, with his signing officially announced during the January 2019 media event.

He most recently wrestled at All Out, defeating Bryan Danielson in singles action.
