Chris Jericho reveals interesting details on the offer he got from Impact Wrestling

Before he signed with AEW, Chris Jericho was also being pursued by Impact Wrestling and if we believe the wrestling legend, then the company had made him a huge offer for a series of matches.

Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio where he talked about a number of things and also provided some interesting details on the offer the company made him.

According to the Master Of Manipulation, Impact Officials wanted him to work a total of four matches and the company had offered him a seven-figure deal for the same:

“When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well. When they believe in something, they have money for it.”

While Chris Jericho ended up signing with AEW, it’s still interesting to know that Impact Officials made such an offer to the former World Champion.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Somebody ego is getting the best of him. All these big money deal is nothing compare to what Ted Turner was offering WWF guys to come join WCW.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I read it as $500k.


    Complete fabrication. Jericho and all the other guys are saying they were offered this by WWE or that by Impact or whatever to make it look like they are getting ridiculous deals with AEW. While they are getting great deals from AEW I’m sure, it just inflates people’s imagination when you throw out a crazy number. “Man, if Impact offered Jericho 4 mill for four matches, then AEW must be paying him 20 mil for 3 years” yeah right give me a break. If Jericho was offered 1 million a match for 4 matches and he turned it down, then he is a STUPID IDIOT. Ha! He could have taken that money and then signed with AEW after. I’m a huge Jericho fan by the way but even I have to call BS.

    So Impact, a company that cannot even keep its own talent on board, wanted to offer Jericho between $4-6 million for 4 matches?
    It really shows why, despite management changes, they can never get to the level they should have done in the industry, and the reason why they struggle to get TV deals.

    No point throwing money at a guy like Jericho for 4 matches if you cannot even build the foundations of the company first.
