Chris Jericho has signed with All Elite Wrestling and he really couldn't care less whether fans think it's a good idea or not.
All Elite Wrestling proved that it really means business via its rally earlier this week. Although many of us are expecting big things, we weren't exactly sure what the company was going to be or who would be involved. We now know when and where AEW's first big show will take place and also a fair few of the faces that will be competing on it.
While the likes of Joey Janela, MJF, Britt Baker, and PAC were all exciting additions, one name stood out from the rest. Chris Jericho. Just as we thought the rally had come to an end, Fozzy's Judas started playing and Y2J walked out on the stage to a raucous reaction. The former WWE Superstar announced he is a part of AEW, and that he wants to continue to change wrestling for the better.
As is always the case with wrestling, and with life in general really, you can't please all of the people all of the time. While it would seem most of the feedback Jericho has received has been positive, there has been the odd negative comment. Well, we have news for those of you who think Y2J signing for AEW is a step in the wrong direction, he really doesn't care what you think.
That is plain to see from the reply above. One fan wrote on the six-time World Champion's Instagram post about his AEW unveiling that they were "so disappointed." Most wrestlers would just keep scrolling or maybe not even see the comment. Not Jericho. Y2J replied "awww im sowwy." On the one hand, pretty juvenile, but on the other, we have to admit it did make us laugh.
The worst thing about the reply, for the fan rather than Jericho, is it's one of those things there is no reply for. You just have to move on with your life. That life will be one that now includes Jericho competing for AEW. We're assuming that for the time being at least, that means he won't be returning to New Japan. Also, judging by how WWE reacted to the AEW news, we won't be seeing Jericho working under Vince McMahon again for a while.
