Pro Wrestling legend and current AEW World Champion Chris Jericho spoke with Chris Van Vliet earlier this year (the video was re-posted today in case you missed it) about a number of topics. Including if there’s any bad blood with WWE, that old rumor about him and JR starting their own promotion and much more.
You can watch the full video below and we have some highlights.
Chris Jericho on the rumor of him and JR starting a promotion-
“That was a good one that me and JR were starting our own company (laughs). That’s really, there was zero to that. So it’s funny when you read something like that and everyone is sending me emails and Vince McMahon sending me emails, like you know anything about this?”
On leaving WWE and a possible return-
“My time in WWE is cemented, if I go back or not. It’s not like it was back in the day where you’re blackballed for life and you’ll never hear the name Chris Jericho again. It’s not like that, so whether I go back there or not, I’ll still always be a part of WWE for sure.”
On if there’s any bad blood with Vince after leaving-
“Not on my end, you know, I spoke to Vince before I signed. He knew it, he was very…the words we exchanged were very amicable, it wasn’t like it was a surprise. Business is business, and Vince is my friend, I respect him, I love the guy. No ill will, just the business road took me this way and I would’ve been crazy not to do it because I might insult somebody. And I think the first guy that would agree with that is Vince.”

And check out our free Pro Wrestling Events Calendar for hundreds of events from around the world.
The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell Pro Wrestling tickets for as many promotions as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have a lot more like announced matches and preview videos, and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event and if we’re able to update it in time. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We have already posted over 2500 events since we started this in late 2018. Events from the largest promotions in the world to small Indie promotions. We started with United States & Canadian promotions but have recently been adding more from around the world. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so may have to click at the bottom to see more on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on any of these event pages (also our news). If you’re a fan who went to an event, feel free to leave a comment about it. If you’re watching live, feel free to use this page as a live discussion. This calendar is totally free, owned and operated by Pro Wrestling fans simply wanting to help other fans. * Chris Jericho leaving WWE *
