Chris Jericho Comments On Edge Possibly Coming To AEW

Chris Jericho addresses the possibility of Edge making his debut in All Elite Wrestling.

On a recent SmackDown, Edge was able to defeat Sheamus with the spear while celebrating his 25th anniversary with the promotion.

After the match, Edge took a microphone and let the Toronto crowd know that it was his final match in the city. With this information, many have speculated Edge could be on his way to AEW.

One man who knows a lot about Edge is Chris Jericho, who is a former tag team partner and rival in WWE. Jericho also believes that Edge coming over to AEW would keep things fresh for the Rated R Superstar.

“Well, I mean, who’s to say for sure? But if you look at Chris Jericho, for example, where I was in WWE, there really wasn’t much more that I could do there. You’re there for for many years, and you’ve wrestled everybody, and it’s great. But it’s always good to shock people, and to show up with a new kind of mission,” Jericho said to Josh Martinez on the Superstar Crossover podcast. “So I think somebody like Edge, you know, there’s a lot of guys over [in WWE] like this. They’ve kind of done everything they can do there. For him to come to AEW with a whole fresh new coat of paint, a whole new roster of matches that he can have, obviously a new name, which would then, knowing him, knowing me, what I would do is a whole new look—a whole new mindset. That’s the best thing about having AEW and about us being as successful as we are, is that there’s now a viable alternative, I don’t wanna say, competitor, because it’s not that, but you can now go to either company.”

Edge’s WWE contract is set to expire this month, and is also expected to make his way over to AEW in the near future.

He is still listed on on the roster as of this writing.

AEW’s Anthony Bowens recently stated he wants to scissor with Edge.
