Chris Jericho clarified his job status with AEW while doing a recent interview with Jesse Ventura. This was brought up when Jesse asked him about All Elite Wrestling stars being labeled as employees instead of independent contractors like other promotions.
Jericho would talk about how Jesse has always stood up for a union in wrestling and thinks that will happen when television networks step up and force the union to happen.
“I don’t know everybody’s specific deals but for myself,” Jericho stated. “I am an employee of AEW. There are inroads for that, at least for me, I’m a registered employee of the company.”
Jericho will take on Adam “Hangman” Page to determine who will be the inaugural AEW World Champion in the expected main event of the AEW All Out event that will take place on Saturday, August 31st at the Sears Centre in Chicago, IL.
