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.
