Chris Jericho: “I’ve never buried anybody”

Last updated

All Elite Wrestling star Chris Jericho recently discussed his approach to the promotion ahead of the AEW Revolution 2023 PPV event.

Speaking on The Kliq podcast, Jericho claimed that he is always trying to put over new talent and that he has never buried anyone on All Elite programming.

“My number one mission from day one when we started AEW was to do my best to make new stars because at first, I think, the company was on my back”, the former WWE Champion began.

“And I knew you’ve only got about a month or two, it can’t always be Chris Jericho. Cody Rhodes right out of the gate, he was not the Cody he is now. Mox was still Dean Ambrose. Nobody knew Kenny Omega, nobody knew the Bucks. Darby Allin, Scorpio Sky, Jungle Boy, Ortiz, Santana, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager when he came back, all those guys in the first three months I worked with,” Jericho added.

“We had a short window of time to make as many stars as we could. So, that’s always been my goal, and Ricky Starks is another guy, people love him, all he needed was a story, he needed to be on TV featured every week, and that’s sort of what we’ve done. 

“I’ve never buried anybody in my career, ever! Now, sometimes I win, and that’s okay, I’m allowed to win, guys. It’s okay,” the former Le Champion added.
