Chris Jericho thinks major NJPW star will join AEW

Last updated

AEW star Chris Jericho recently appeared on Reinvented. The former WWE Champion discussed several topics during the interview, including his thoughts on Will Ospreay and if the New Japan Pro Wrestling star will ever join All Elite.

‘I’d love to see Will in AEW. I actually called him way way back when we were first starting out to see what kind of interest he had” Jericho revealed.

“I think there are a lot of guys that want to work in Japan and spend time there, I know because I was one of them” the former WWE Undisputed Champion continued.

“I’ve been to Japan over 60 times in my career. There will come a time when Will decides he wants to work in his own country.

“I know he’s English, but in America, that idea is much more similar to England than Japan is” Jericho continued.

“There’s something to be said about being a worldwide television superstar. You won’t get that working for New Japan Pro Wrestling. It’s great to be there, but the real big leagues lie in America.

“I would love to see Will working in America and I think at some point, that will probably happen” ‘Le Champion’ concluded.
