We at Real Rasslin can confirm that

AEW star Chris Jericho has revealed in a recent interview that he doesn’t really think about going back to WWE.

While Jericho has had a long career in professional wrestling spanning WCW, WWE and now AEW, he has recently mentioned he doesn’t really think about going back.

Speaking on the Gabby AF podcast, Chris Jericho said:

“I don’t really think about that sort of thing, I kind of live in the now. We talk about being 33 years in wrestling, I’m like, ‘Wow, really?’ It doesn’t feel that way because I can still have the best match on any given show.

“Not every night, but a couple weeks ago, I wrestled Takeshita [Konosuke Takeshita] on Dynamite and it was the best on the show. There are still great moments for Jericho and a lot I can do. I don’t shut the door on anything.

To me, WWE isn’t the be all-end all. It was great to be there, I had a great 20 years there, but I’ve had a great going on five years in AEW. I love working here. I love working with, not even for, with Tony Khan.

WWE is a completely different animal now than when I left in 2017. It’s been six years. It’s not something I’ve really thought about. I like watching and reading about what’s going on, the buzz that they have, but I also like my company and I helped start AEW.

“I don’t really see any reason why I would want to leave at this point. Never say that I wouldn’t go, but I have zero plans of that. I like it here and I like the people I work with.

“I enjoy coming to work every week, which was not always the case in WWE, and it’s weird how that is the case here, but it’s a different vibe and I have a lot of fun here in AEW.”

Chris Jericho is set to take on HOOK on this Wednesday’s upcoming AEW Dynamite (March 20).
