Chris Jericho Reveals Who Is The Most Underrated AEW Wrestler

Published

on

Chris Jericho recently revealed who he believes it the most underrated member of the AEW roster at the moment.

The AEW star spoke with David Penzer on Penzer’s ‘Sitting Ringside’ podcast, where he admitted that his upcoming Winter Is Coming opponent, Frankie Kazarian, is one of the most underrated wrestlers in the business.


“There’s not a more underrated guy in AEW and maybe even in the wrestling business than Frankie Kazarian. That guy has a great match every week. Doesn’t matter if he’s on Dynamite, if he’s on Dark, if he’s in a singles match or a multi-team match, whatever it may be. He brings it every night so when I saw that, I’m like, ‘Man, I’d really like to have a match with him’ so, that’s kind of how this whole storyline was started and kind of tie in Chris Daniels as well so, it’s always cool when you find guys that have been around for such a long time that you never even touched. It’s like finding this rare piece of gold if you’re coal mining or something where you just can’t believe this has just been there all this time and I’ve never come into contact before so, it’s gonna be a fun couple of weeks for sure.”

Jericho also touched on the career of The Undertaker, discussing how they never really crossed paths in a major way at WrestleMania, but admitted they could have one of the top storylines today if it was booked.

“But other than that, Undertaker was at the top of the top and I was kinda wavering up and down, never in between. If Undertaker was still there and I went back today and challenged him to WrestleMania next year, that would be one of the biggest matches you could have, but that is because of the work I’ve done over the last four years. So, it was never really seen as the main event, even when I was in the main event of WrestleMania against Shawn [Michaels] and against Hunter, Taker was doing other stuff as well so we just were never peaking storyline-wise at the same time to be worthy of that WrestleMania spot because once again, it was always about the streak until Brock [Lesnar] beat him whatever year that was and I think I was gone at that point, or close to it. So, to go up with The Undertaker, you know you were one of many that was gonna fall so you had to be the right guy because most people knew, ‘Oh, he’s gonna lose anyway’ so it was hard to create a storyline with him and we just never crossed paths at the right time to do that.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions.)

Darby Allin Discusses Working With Sting & Being The TNT Champion

Darby Allin

Darby Allin has given his thoughts on working with Sting in recent weeks, and what it has been like to be TNT Champion.

Allin spoke with The Total Slam Podcast where he spoke about working with Sting, who he has been together with since the wrestling legend joined the company.


“I don’t know where it is going and how it came up,” Allin said of their storyline. “I feel like he saw something in me that is almost lost in wrestling today with the creative side of things. I know he saw my videos and it’s something different, and I feel he sees a little bit of himself in me.”

Darby also spoke about getting to be the TNT Champion and the experience he has had with the company since he joined.

“It feels amazing. When I first stepped into AEW and I saw what they had to offer, in my mind I thought I was the poster child of creative freedom. You’ll give me creative freedom and I will show everything I can do here and not elsewhere,” said Allin. “They realized it with all my videos and how I put matches together and it feels really good and that I belong in that spot.

“I was bitter and angry on my independent run because I was a second match card guy and saw the main eventers, and in my mind, I thought there is no reason why I can’t be there. I’m just not taken seriously like I want to be taken. If you give me the opportunity like I did with Cody or with Cage, and I can show everybody that if you give me the ball, you will never get it back.”

Allin is currently set to be part of Sting’s first match back at AEW Revolution, where the duo are set to face Team Tazz members, Brain Cage and Ricky Starks in a street fight. (H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions)

Dax Harwood Reveals He’d Like Chad Gable To Join AEW

Chad Gable

AEW’s Dax Harwood recently spoke about WWE Superstar, Chad Gable, discussing the chemistry they had and how he should join AEW.

Harwood and Gable have a huge history together from their rivalry in WWE with American Alpha and The Revival having some fantastic matches together. When speaking with Arn Anderson as part of a special AdFreeShows watch-along for the ARN podcast, Dax spoke about how you can tell if a wrestler belongs, and why AEW should sign Gable.


“That’s what separates the wrestlers from guys who are playing wrestler. There are guys who can go in there and do some athletic, crazy stuff, and I wish I could. But if you believe in your heart that you’re the best, if believe you’re the biggest badass in the world, nobody can beat you, you’re gonna look legit. I think we should get Gable into AEW, but that’s just my thought.”

Harwood then put over the American Alpha stars as two of the hardest workers they’ve ever wrestled, and how they shook up their matches regularly to keep them fresh.

“Those two guys are two of the hardest working guys I’ve ever been in the ring with. They are the two hardest working guys I have ever been in the ring with. We worked with those guys for I don’t know, four months straight, 5 months straight on these house shows. This is when NXT was picking up and we were going to these house shows every week. Every week, my goal was to change the match. I never wanted to do the same thing, ever. There’s some guys that want, and I can understand, there’s some guys that want to preserve their body and preserve their mind and just get through it, and I get that, but these guys weren’t like that.” (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions)
