Chirs Jericho is both a busy man and one who keeps his fans guessing. Since leaving WWE in 2017, he’s created another new gimmick, worked high profile matches in New Japan Pro Wrestling, spearheaded a successful cruise (or Rock N’ Wrestling Rager At Sea, if you will) that’s getting a sequel in January 2020, and signed with new company All Elite Wrestling – and that doesn’t even include his work with his band, Fozzy, and his podcast, Talk Is Jericho. On June 9 at Dominion, he’ll challenge for Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, on August 31 at All Out he’ll take on Hangman Page in a match to crown the inaugural AEW World Champion, and it doesn’t seem like he’ll slow down from there.
With Spandex spoke to Jericho about his upcoming projects, the evolution of his wrestling persona, and more. That conversation is below and has been edited for length and clarity.
