The Benefits of Seniority In Pro-Wrestling

Chris Jericho has been in and out of the squared circle since the early 1990’s.

Now, after wrestling for close to 30 years, Jericho is able to pick and choose his schedule(s). Now, #Jericho is balancing his schedule between NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling), WWE and his rock band #Fozzy.

Currently, Jericho is promoting his match with Tetsuya Naito at Dominion on June 9th. #Naito is currently the Intercontinental champion and there are rumors abound on if #Jericho will take the belt or not. The way things are looking, he probably won’t, as (according to their website) Fozzy will be touring from July to October. In later October he is set to go on a cruise that is billed as ‘Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager At Sea!’ from October 27-31

Although his is currently promoting #NJPW, he can pretty much come and go from WWE as he pleases.  Recently he was entrant number 50 in the WWE Greatest Royal Rumble back in April. At one point he was billed to be in the casket match against the #Undertaker, but, he was informed that the Prince of Saudi Arabia himself requested Rusev be in the match instead.

Since then, Jericho stated on his Twitter account that (in his opinion) he versus the Undertaker would have been a better match. Jericho’s character in WWE is a completely different character than the one he portrays in NJPW, in WWE, he is a bit more relaxed whereas in NJPW he is way more serious.

On Jericho’s Instagram, he stated:

“Remember that funny guy with The List and the LightUp Jacket? Well he don’t [sic] exist in NJPW”.

On top of NJPW, WWE and Fozzy, Impact Wrestling has also hinted at interest in having Y2J join their ranks. In a recent interview in Pro Wrestling Illustrated, one of the Vice Presidents of the company,

Don Callis said:

“We’d even open the door for a guy like Chris Jericho…”

So at the end of the day, where does this place him in the WWE? Well, it is fair to say that his contract is fairly open and he has expressed interest to work with several W#WE super-stars telling the Daily Mirror:  “If we can come up with a good story, then I’m all in. If not, then I will just continue doing what I’m doing right now and having a lot of fun doing it,”

Not many wrestlers have such an open contract with WWE much less any other promotion.

Jericho, whose real name is Chris Irvine, will be 48 in November and he isn’t showing any signs of slowing down – Wrestling, writing, dancing with the stars, rock n rolling, music festivals, podcasting, cruising at sea…. He is doing it all and it seems that to him, ‘retirement’ is a four letter word.
