In the interview, Jericho talked about his next feud under the All Elite Wrestling banner which will be against Jon Moxley.
The Jericho vs. Moxley program started at the end of last week’s AEW Dynamite show in Chicago, IL at the Sears Centre Arena when Moxley had a staredown with Jericho after Jericho had successfully retained the title in the headliner over Scorpio Sky.
Although Jericho worked with Moxley in the past under the WWE banner when Moxley went by the Dean Ambrose name, Jericho believes they will deliver an entirely different story in AEW.
“That feud in WWE was really damn good, but we’re both so different now,” said Jericho. “It won’t be the same. Moxley was never this confident or this good in WWE. As Moxley said in our ‘Talk is Jericho’ podcast interview, he didn’t know who he was in WWE. He was constantly at odds with the creative and at odds with himself. This is a completely new guy. Dean Ambrose was only a portion of his career. To me, Moxley is the real guy. And there is a new-look Chris Jericho with all this creative freedom in AEW, so it’s going to be very intense and it’s going to be a lot of fun.
“I know a lot of people have already said, ‘This is happening too quickly.’ Everybody needs to sit back, relax, and watch the story unfold. Trust me, we are not rushing anything. I wouldn’t allow it.”
