Chris Jericho Signs Three-year Contract Extension With AEW – According to Variety, former AEW World Champion and current ROH World Champion Chris Jericho has signed a three-year extension with the company.

Variety confirmed that, in addition to his in-ring roles, Jericho will take on increased responsibilities behind the scenes in AEW, where he will now serve as a producer and creative advisor, while he continues to work as a mentor to young talent.

In a statement about the extension, Tony Khan said:

“Chris Jericho long ago cemented his legacy as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, and we’re fortunate to have his skills, charisma, knowledge and insights in AEW for years to come. Chris has discovered a fountain of youth this year, and he’s having some of the very best matches of his legendary career against some of the top names in wrestling. In expanding his responsibilities, he’ll continue to serve as a valuable leader with our roster having the opportunity to utilize one of most creative minds in the history of wrestling.”

When Jericho was asked why he opted to stay in AEW, he said:

“I guess the simple answer is ‘Why not?’. Things have been going so well in the company, and I really do feel that this is my company. It’s tattooed on my heart, so to speak. I’ve been here since day one, and there’s really no reason not to be here continuing forward.”

“When AEW first started, I think basically it was Chris Jericho and a group of very talented people that might not have been as well known,” he continued. “Within three months that changed and now within three years, we’ve got at least a dozen, maybe two dozen, of our own homegrown stars that came into their own on AEW television.”

Jericho is set to defend his ROH World Championship against former ROH World Champion Dalton Castle on tonight’s AEW Dynamite show.
