It’s been rumored that Chris Jericho might be heading to Impact Wrestling in the near future. With Y2J enjoying his time outside of the WWE, it’s not hard to see why he’d jump at a chance to work with a company like Impact Wrestling.
On a recent episode of the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Jericho said he could definitely work for ROH or Impact Wrestling, though he does have loyalty to the WWE.
When someone says, ‘Would you ever go to Impact? Would you ever go to Ring of Honor? Would you ever go here, there, or wherever?’ Yeah sure, why not? If it’s creatively satisfying, if it’s something that I can really sink my teeth into, something that I can really enjoy, then why wouldn’t I give it a try?
At this point, I’ve done everything I could ever do in wrestling. I have a loyalty to WWE, but not a death wish with them or anything like that where by hook or by crook I have to be with the WWE. I think part of the fun of what’s going on right now in the business is there’s a real resurgence with independent wrestling and independent companies, and it really gives the WWE a real kick in the ass when people go other places.
Jericho did go on to reveal that, though he isn’t against the thought of working with Impact, there have been no talks between them.
