According to the former WWE Champion, he doesn’t believe WWE will be granting anymore releases to its talent. The reason for that is due to the war that will begin between WWE and AEW.
This topic was brought up when Jericho talked about AEW signing Shawn Spears (formerly known as Tye Dillinger in WWE). He would bring up how Spears was on the sidelines in WWE for eight months and that he was just one among many who are doing the same right now.
“Thankfully, Shawn got his release. He’s the last one that will. Nobody will ever get their release from WWE again. Nobody. He got his release, Cody and him are friends. Cody knew what he was capable of. I knew what he was capable of. I championed to get him. The guy is a tremendous heel. He’s an old school heel. He looks the part. Putting him with Tully Blanchard is a great idea. He’s a main eventer. We’re going to make him into a star, just by putting him with Cody Rhodes.”
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.
