Chris Jericho has spoken highly about various WWE stars as he had the chance to wrestle them in the past. Most notably, the former AEW World Heavyweight Champion would want Roman Reigns to join the rival promotion although the chances are very slim from happening.
During a Saturday Night Special live stream on his YouTube channel, Jericho made it known that he would love to have Samoa Joe in AEW after a fan expressed interest in seeing Joe make the jump.
“So would I. I don’t know if Joe is hurt right now or if he’s not feeling good, but I’ll tell you what man, he is just an amazing wrestler. He’s a great talker and just a hell of a guy as well, I would love to have him in AEW.
I don’t know if he wants to go. He might be hurt and he’s a great commentator so if he’s going to come to AEW and steal my possible commentating job then forget that.”
This is an interesting pick as Joe is currently serving as a commentator for WWE Monday Night Raw.
Joe had worked on the announce team before, but when he suffered a series of concussions in a short amount of time, the call was made to make him a permanent commentator.
