Former WWE Champion Chris Jericho has been known for the ability to reinvent himself time and again. The AEW World Champion is not only a pillar of AEW but is also set to compete for NJPW.
One of the things fans have loved about Y2J over the years has been his ability to come up with new and unique catchphrases. Talking to Sports Illustrated, Le Champion spoke about why he doesn’t like re-using his own catchphrases, also taking a dig at Degeneration X.
I have a great list of hits, but a lot of those will never be played again because I’m too busy concentrating on new hits and performing at the highest level. It’s hard to leave all the old gimmicks and catchphrases, and take a chance, but if you don’t do that, it’s like DX coming to the ring in 2019 and yelling ‘Suck it!’ It looks like a relic from the past, and I never wanted to be that.
The Painmaker Chris Jericho will be facing Hiroshi Tanahashi at Wrestle-Kingdom 14, night 2.
