Chris Jericho States That AEW Is No Longer Hiring New Talent

AEW World Champion Chris Jericho has stated that the promotion is no longer hiring new talent at this point in time.

All Elite Wrestling World Champion Chris Jericho has stated that the promotion is no longer hiring new talent at this point in time. “Le Champion” divulged the information during an interview with ScreenGeek.

“We’re not looking to hire anybody else right now,” Jericho shared. “If someone comes along that makes sense, we will, but we have so much talent that people don’t even know, they don’t even know the Young Bucks yet! That’s what I’m saying, you have to understand, this is our first show, you can’t assume that everyone knows who these guys are.”

He continued, “I haven’t been on TV for two years. What’s the first line I ever said on AEW TV? ‘My name is Chris Jericho, and I am the champion of AEW’. That pretty much tells the tale. ‘Oh, who is that guy? Oh, he’s the champion?’ Boom. Done. It’s like a good movie poster that tells you what it is.”

Rather than inflate their roster with every available free agent, Jericho believes it’s more important to establish those who already a part of the promotion.

“[…] it’s really important to establish who these guys are, so that when people see them they’ll freak out as to why they’ve never heard of them before and just how good they are because they’ve been doing this for years and chose NOT to go to WWE. The secret to AEW is that we all have passion to be here because we want to be.”

Jericho defends his AEW World Championship against Cody Rhodes at AEW’s next pay-per-view Full Gear on November 9th.
