During the current crisis, Chris Jericho has started his own interactive streaming show called Saturday Night Special. On the August 1st edition, a viewer asked for Jericho’s top 5 people he wants in AEW.
“Roman Reigns, Will Ospreay, Richochet,…[Kota] Ibushi maybe, let’s do Ibushi, and Don Callis.”
While Jericho names both WWE and NJPW roster members for talent, the addition of Don Callis may be a more personal pick. Don Callis, Executive Vice President for Impact Wrestling, was a key figure in arranging the Wrestle Kingdom 12 match between Jericho and Kenny Omega.
Earlier in the show, in relation to a question about powerhouses in AEW, Jericho also stated:
“I think Cesaro in AEW would be one of our Top Guys.”
Though Jericho may not have hiring power at AEW, an endorsement from Le Champion is sure to be noticed.
