Chris Jericho acknowledges his status as the 'cool dad' of WWE

Well I'll be damned.

The question, then, is whether or not we can buy into the fact that he's self aware and his work on television reflects that. Then again, this is exactly the response you would expect from a cool dad who doesn't get that he's become just that. After all, Jericho is a 45-year-old man who fronts a rock band straight out of the 80s. Also, he's in a tag team with the 38-year-old AJ Styles that they've dubbed "Y2AJ," complete with this shirt...

...which looks like what a cool dad would think his teenage kids would think awesome.

You know what? He's going to put Styles over (if he hasn't already), or whoever else WWE has him working with going forward, and that's all that matters anyway, right?

So, thanks, (cool) dad!
