Chris Jericho’s signing with AEW was probably the biggest news coming out of the Double or Nothing rally from Jacksonville because of Jericho’s status and his popularity.
However, during the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Chris’s contract with the company and revealed some interesting details on it.
According to Meltzer, Jericho actually had talked to WWE just recently, and while he has been rumored to be involved with the promotion from a long time, it appears that he made his decision to sign with the company just recently.
Not only that but it appears that Chris might not have signed an exclusive contract with the company as he is interested in working more matches with NJPW in near future.
Though it was noted that other stars who have signed with the promotion appear to have signed exclusive contracts and it’s only Jericho who might have a different deal.
