Chris Jericho opens up on how much longer he’ll wrestle

Chris Jericho has wrestled some of the biggest names in the history of pro wrestling. He is no doubt a future WWE Hall of Famer and a worthy candidate for the honorable class that recognizes the credentials of pro wrestlers.

Jericho recently spoke with Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda where he spoke about how much longer he thinks he can wrestle. He just signed a new three-year contract with AEW at age 48.

“I’ll know when I know. All I can say is the last match I had at the Tokyo Dome was one of the best matches on the show. As long as I can keep delivering, that’s all that matters to me. The days of wrestling 100 times a year are done. I don’t want to do that, I’m not interested in that. The way that I feel right now, I want to continue having great matches that mean something. Nothing against the fine people of, you know, Poughkeepsie, New York, or Kirriemuir, Scotland, or wherever, those days of going to those towns are done.

“Do I have ten more matches in me? 100 matches? 500? I don’t know! I do know that when I finish this contract, I’ll still be younger than The Undertaker, and he just signed a new contract, so it all depends on how I feel and I never wanted to be less than what I considered to be my best. The reason I’m still able to do it is because I really limit my matches and pick my spots. I think that was a smart move to be able to continue at a high level because I’m not cashing in all my chips on a yearly basis – and it’s been working!”

Jericho is slated to take on Kenny Omega for a second time at the AEW Double or Nothing event is set to take place May 25th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
