Chris Jericho Says He’s Having Fun Not Working For Vince, Open To More US Shows



ALL IN Chris Jericho

It’s been nearly two weeks now, but the wrestling world is still abuzz after IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho’s surprise appearance at All In on September 1st when he dressed up as Pentagon Jr. and attacked Kenny Omega.

The appearance naturally led to more talk about the door being more open than ever for Jericho to work for other companies, especially since he said in months past he wouldn’t work in the United States out of respect for Vince McMahon. Of course, ‘Y2J’ has been rumored to eventually work with IMPACT Wrestling, but as for his stance on working any events moving forward, Jericho had the following to say about working the ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard next April on the most recent edition of Busted Open Radio on SiriusXM:

“There is a whole market now for…you know, hardcore wrestling fans or maybe not even hardcore anymore. There’s a whole strain of fans of wrestling that are excited about all of these other options. I mean…you know, I didn’t think there was any chance I’d be doing All In, but at this point in time sure, there’s a chance. If there’s a match that’s presented to me that’s interesting, if I’m free like, why not? Like, I’m really kind of enjoying this free agency and realizing, ‘Why do I have to just keep it in Japan?’. You know, what if I do want to do more stuff at this stage and you know, not really worrying about what anybody thinks. At this point in time, I think for the first time in my career, in 28 years, October 2nd will be 28 years…I’m kind of completely in control and it’s fun. You know?

I really enjoy not having to run my ideas, that I know are gonna work, through a committee of two or three people or having to wait you know, three hours in front of a door to go pitch it to one guy and hope that he likes it. You know, at this point in time we’re all pros and we know what works and what doesn’t work…and if we’re not sure we can ask other guys and kind of work together. But, in WWE when you work there, one again, you gotta go with whatever it is he wants to go with and you know, that’s fine.

When you work for Vince it’s the way it is, but it’s fun to not work for Vince right now and have some of these other ideas that you kind of explore. It’s (inaudible) working for WWE. Which is fine if you’re working there, get ready for it and deal with it, but right now it’s fun not having to deal with that so we’ll have to see. I mean, nobody’s called me, either way to work there or not work there. I’m on tour with Fozzy until mid-December and that’s the end of the Judas Rising Tour. Then you know, we go back to songwriting, back to recording and in that time is usually when I go back to the WWE, but this time maybe there’s other places I’ll go back to other than WWE.”

Mitchell’s AEW Continental Classic Update! (11/27/23)

What a start to the tournament!



Did your picks win points?

The AEW Continental Classic is underway, with almost everyone competing. Check in here if you haven’t seen the winners and losers of week 1!

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points
  • Mark Briscoe: 0-1, 0 points.
  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points


Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Brody King: 1-0, 3 points
  • Claudio Castagnoli: 1-0, 3 points
  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete


My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
