Chris Jericho has done just about everything there is to do in pro wrestling over his 30+ year career in the ring. But he is always excited when something new pops up on his radar, such as getting the chance to meet a Von Erich family member for the first time at this week’s AEW TV taping.
In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, Chris used that mindset to name two AEW wrestlers he’d rather avoid because he’s worked with them so many times, and two stars he can’t wait to mix it up with for the first time:
“I’ve wrestled Adam Copeland so many times and Christian so many times that I would rather not wrestle against those guys. I mean, obviously, we could and have a great match. But I really enjoy working with kind of everybody that I haven’t worked with before. I think Swerve Strickland is amazing. I think Mark Briscoe is amazing, just off the top of my head of guys I’ve never stepped in the ring with. Both of those guys would be a lot of fun to have matches with, you know. So I think right now, that’s kind of a cool place to be looking at.”
Chris also mentioned that he’s never worked a tag team match against FTR, but he hopes to do so very soon with Kenny Omega as his partner. Who knows, if Omega and Jericho walk out of Worlds End as the new AEW world tag team champions on Dec. 30, maybe we’ll get a title match shortly thereafter between FTR and The Winnipeg Jets, as in The Golden Jets. The Golden Jets, not The Winnipeg Jets.
