AEW are rumored to be interested in signing Buddy Murphy, FightfulSelect.com reports. AEW lost Cody Rhodes yesterday.
Current AEW Star and former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho is no doubt one of the most accomplished and popular pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He has competed in several promotions such as WCW, WWE, ECW, New Japan Pro Wrestling and AEW among others. Chris Jericho also previously dropped a major return bombshell.
Chris Jericho also competed in quite a few matches in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, starting from his IWGP United States Championship against Kenny Omega back in 2018 to his matches for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship with Tetsuya Naito. He also squared off against Hiroshi Tanahashi back in 2020.
The current landscape of pro wrestling is not what it used to be and it continues to change with each passing day. It all started with AEW’s partnership with Impact Wrestling. The Forbidden Door was finally opened again as AEW started their partnership with New Japan Pro Wrestling thanks to Jay White’s AEW debut.
Chris Jericho recently spoke on the latest episode of his Talk Is Jericho podcast, where Le Champion revealed that he wanted to square off against Hiroshi Tanahashi at the G1 Supercard during WrestleMania weekend at Madison Square Garden in 2019 but was denied the chance.
“I was actually going to do it against Tanahashi and then both Tony Khan and Vince McMahon asked me not to do it.”

Last month, during a conversation with DAZN news, former WCW Champion “Diamond” Dallas Page lauded Chris Jericho as this generation’s Ric Flair. Credit to the outlet for the below.
“Nathan Lowry, who was one of the guys who works for me and the guy who was the director of Jericho’s (song) “Judas.” They filmed Judas in my DDP Yoga Performance Center. That was one of those who changed Chris Jericho’s life. To me, Chris Jericho is the most over guy in professional wrestling. He’s Ric Flair. He’s Ric Flair now. He’s got 30 years, he’s still on top, he continues to reinvent himself, and he can still work ass off.
