During a recent interview with SportsKeeda.com, current IWGP Intercontinental Champion, Chris Jericho addressed the rumors of possibly joining IMPACT Wrestling.
There have been rumors about the WWE legend possibly appearing at IMPACT to work with his friend, Don Callis for several months now, but so far he has yet to make any appearances, although many people wanted to see him at Bound For Glory, with the live crowd chanting his name.
“I think you know me well enough to know there’s always a chance, I have no restrictions on anything that I’m doing, and you know me well enough to know that if it was going to happen I damn well wouldn’t tell you. I think it’s just one of those things where you’ll have to wait and see. I don’t have any restrictions or any real plans at all. I just kind of do things as they come which is why this year has been… and I’m sure next year will be more of the same so let’s see what happens.”
Jericho had been a WWE company man for a long stretch of time, which was why it was a major surprise when he first appeared in New Japan Pro Wrestling. However, since then he has been very open to doing things away from WWE which has sparked the IMPACT rumors.
He had always stated that he wouldn’t compete anywhere other than WWE in America out of respect for Vince McMahon, however, Jericho broke that rule when he appeared at ALL IN to attack Kenny Omega, once again sparking IMPACT rumors.
