Kayla Harrison – “Chris Jericho? I would eat him for breakfast”

Last updated

MMA star and the woman regarded as one of the best marital artists on the planet, Kayla Harrison, has said that she wouldn’t want to go into pro wrestling because it would be “too easy.”

Speaking on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, the PFL fighter explained why she has no interest in going into pro wrestling, whilst also slating AEW’s Chris Jericho.

‘It would just be too easy, don’t you think?” Kayla Harrison began. “There are levels and we would just be on a different level. That’s why I’m not interested.

“Because what’s the fun in that? I want an actual challenge. Going and beating up people who hang out in their mom’s basement is like, ‘cool'” Harrison continued.

“I would beat up all the guys on those rosters, 100%. So I know everyone’s like, ’˜Oh, girls can’t beat up guys.’ Chris Jericho? I would eat him for breakfast. Are you kidding me?” Harrison stated.

“That old, washed-up has-been, are you kidding me? I would grab him by his hair and throw him around. I could do that. No problem. It wouldn’t even be a work, it would be real. That’s what I’m saying.’

With AEW already working with MMA stars such as Paige VanZant, it certainly wouldn’t be a shock seeing Kayla Harrison rock up in the company.
