AEW Star Credits Chris Jericho For Giving Him The Confidence To Not Be Afraid To Try Things AEW

An AEW star has credited Chris Jericho for giving him the confidence to not be afraid to try things.

In March 2022, Daniel Garcia aligned himself with the first AEW World Champion Chris Jericho in the Jericho Appreciation Society. Alongside Matt Menard, Angelo Parker and Jake Hager, the group has been a prominent part of AEW programming.

Since becoming aligned with Jericho, Garcia has been helped to become a sports entertainer and has adopted a signature dance move that has been gaining popularity by the week.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Garcia was asked what he’s learned from Jericho during their time together. He answered:

“The biggest thing with being with Jericho, he doesn’t tell you what to do, he doesn’t even really try to steer you in the right direction. He gives me the confidence to try.”

“I’ll see Jericho do things that other wrestlers would never dream of doing, they would feel so self-conscious doing.”

“I’m like, If Chris Jericho, the person that beat The Rock and Steve Austin in the same night, who has been on top for 20 years, if he’s willing to try this new thing that might seem goofy or intimidating to some people, why shouldn’t I give myself, a couple years into the business, the opportunity to try something?”

“Why am I scared to fall on my face? Why am I scared to fail? Jericho has tried things, it’s the most random things, and it’s gotten over.”

“Why am I so afraid to try something that I want to do, I shouldn’t be afraid to fail. That’s the biggest confidence Jericho has given me, don’t be afraid to try.”

Daniel Garcia recently teamed up with fellow Jericho Appreciation Society member Sammy Guevara in a loss to MJF and Adam Cole in the Blind Eliminator Tournament Final on the July 19 “Blood & Guts” edition of AEW Dynamite.
