Jake Hager Has Signed Contract Extension With AEW

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion has signed a contract extension with AEW.

Speaking to Alex McCarthy of Inside The Ropes, Chris Jericho was asked about 2.0 signing an extension and he revealed that Jake Hager also signed an extension with the company.

“Jake Hager too, they all got contract extensions,” 

 “I knew those guys were really good the moment I started working with them. I do feel proud that they got contract extensions, raises, and everything in between. I don’t want to say anybody deserves…they earned it. They earned it by showing what they can do. The JAS has so many members, that’s the way Tony (Khan) wants it, adding Sammy (Guevara), Tay (Conti), Anna (Jay), I can’t do everything for everybody, so I love that they have their own story going on with Angelo and HOOK. Daddy Magic has a shoulder issue so he’s been doing commentary and he’s been killing it. I gave them an opening and they just kicked the door open, and they understand, the more they can do, the more valuable they are to the company and Tony Khan agreed. It is great to see because they didn’t deserve it, they earned it.”
