Popular Star Explains Why Chris Jericho Is Vital To The AEW Roster AEW

AEW star Ricky Starks has praised Chris Jericho following their match at the March 5 Revolution pay-per-view.

On Sunday’s show, Starks bested the former AEW World Champion in the opening bout of the show.

During the post-show media scrum, Starks showed respect for his former opponent, noting that he has learned so much working with Le Champion.

Believing that Jericho is a vital member of the roster, Starks said:

“There are a few things that I’ve learned about Chris. He’s a very masterful type of conductor in a way. I guess for me, learning from Chris was all of the right things to do at the right moment.

“I’m a big believer, and I’ve talked about this heavy in interviews about the people that I want to wrestle here. I’ve mentioned Kenny, I’ve mentioned Punk, I mentioned all of these people with the experience because iron sharpens iron.

“To wrestle Chris Jericho, that is iron sharpening iron. I think, coming out of this, I am a better performer, I’m a better entertainer, after all of this.

“Not to say that I wasn’t before, but to add just a little bit of some extra flair to a well-seasoned meat that is me, I think that worked out as perfectly as it could.

“Chris is a legend in this business. I don’t think y’all realize how old Chris is. I’m not saying that in a negative way, but I’m saying it to say he’s been doing this for a very long time.

“To have him on the roster is a very vital thing for people such as myself, who are hungry, who don’t want to sit in catering and have to just wait for the next thing.

“That is what I have always wanted since I’ve been here. I had it with Sting, didn’t get it for a bit, now I got Chris. There’s more to it from that.

“So Chris is a very, very special type of talent. I will give him that.”

A late change was made to this match on the Revolution card, which you can read more about right here.
