Chris Jericho Says He Would ‘Love’ To Have Samoa Joe in AEW

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar and AEW’s ‘Le Champion’ Chris Jericho recently spoke to New York Post to promote this Wednesday’s AEW Blood & Guts match. The bout will see Jericho’s Inner Circle stable take on The Pinnacle in a WarGames style match.

As part of the interview, Jericho discussed two of the talents that were recently released by WWE, Tucker and Samoa Joe.

‘You look at a guy like Tucker for example,’ Jericho said in the interview. ‘I don’t know if we would take him tomorrow, we might, but it seems to me if he goes and proves what he can do and what he’s capable of, well then absolutely [we’d take him]” Chris Jericho stated.

‘Obviously, the one name that stands out as an established main-event heavyweight champion guy is Samoa Joe” Jericho continued. “Those guys have three months before they can go anywhere. But I’d love to see Joe in an AEW ring at some point.”

“That’s another dream match if you want to go there” ‘Le Champion’ noted. “I’ve never (wrestled him). I think we had one little, three minute sh*tty little match on RAW and it was just kind of thrown away. And I didn’t want to do it because I said ‘this is a pay-per-view match,’ but that’s the WWE style.”

“I think Joe and Jericho, Joe and Omega, Joe with Cody, Joe with put name here is a money match’ Jericho concluded. As Jericho mentioned, Samoa Joe has to wait for 90 days before he can compete for a rival company on a television platform.
