Chris Jericho: Details on his AEW contract ahead of AEW All Out

Last updated

AEW star Chris Jericho has agreed to put his All Elite Wrestling contract on the line at the All Out PPV event on September 5th.

Jericho will be facing MJF for one final time, with the former WWE Superstar putting his in-ring AEW status on the line in the contest.

Dave Meltzer recently revealed some further information on Jericho’s AEW contract on Wrestling Observer Radio. Meltzer confirmed how long Jericho has left on his deal.

Jericho reportedly signed a three-year deal in January of 2019; thus meaning that it would be expiring in January 2022.

Meltzer noted that there is a one-year option in Jericho’s contract, so Jericho’s AEW contract will therefore expire in 18 months, taking us to around January 2023.

It has not been confirmed if AEW will be looking to take Chris Jericho out of the ring and into a more backstage/managerial or commentary role.

Jericho is currently one of the commentators for AEW Rampage, alongside Taz, Mark Henry and Excalibur. The former WWE Superstar has indicated that he wants to have a further role with the company once his in-ring career is over, but there’s no indication as to whether that will be on Sunday, September 5th.

Here’s the full updated card for AEW All Out 2021:

  • AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Christian Cage
  • AEW World Tag Team Championship: Young Bucks (c) vs. TBD in a steel cage
  • CM Punk vs. Darby Allin
  • PAC vs. Andrade
  • Paul Wight vs. QT Marshall
  • Women’s Casino Battle Royale: 21 competitors
  • Chris Jericho vs MJF
