During today’s huge All Elite Wrestling rally, the company unveiled the huge news that Chris Jericho was officially signing for the company.
Jericho appeared at the end of the conference, just as Conrad Thompson appeared to be wrapping things up to surprise the Jacksonville crowd as he officially announced himself as a member of the AEW roster.
Jericho has often stated he wouldn’t work for any US company other than WWE, but that is no longer the case and this deal will likely mean his time with New Japan Pro Wrestling also comes to an end.
Jericho stated that he isn’t it for the money as he has already had that, but is instead in it to help change the world, claiming:
“I am Chris Jericho and I am All In with All Elite Wrestling! Surprise!”
