Chris Jericho On Who The Next Big Superstar In Wrestling Is

Top All Elite Wrestling Star “The Demo God” “Le Champion” Chris Jericho is one of, if not the biggest veteran in the pro wrestling business today. He has worked with the younger talents for a really long time now and he has seen what they are capable of and what they can bring to the table. When speaking on The Hollywood Raw Podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, Chris was asked who for him is the next big superstar in wrestling.

Chris Jericho responded with Jungle Boy, who is one of the fastest rising stars in AEW and someone he has faced on four separate occasions, including a Singles Match, a Tag Team Match, a Six-Man Tag Team Match and a 10-Man Tag Team Match.

Shortly after Chris Jericho became the inaugural AEW World Champion, his championship belt was stolen and was returned soon after, but Chris Jericho believes that there is more to the story than was told and revealed and that there was an elaborate plan in place in the title going missing. Jericho talked about how he thinks the belt went missing.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“It’s such a long story. Yeah, in retrospect, I’m pretty sure it was a big sting, because it’s… Long story short, I was on a charter plane that had the land in Tallahassee because there was a storm, so we went to get something to eat. Rather than wait for the plane, I got a limo to come grab me with something to eat and drive us home.”

“I think when we got dropped off for something to eat, which was not the place I wanted to go, it was a place that the guy suggested. Maybe when he came inside to look for me, even though I was sitting right there and I saw him, that maybe his buddy came and grabbed it out of the back because there was some other stuff.”

“There was a thing of flowers that was into that, that I gave my wife that had shattered on the ground. I think it was just a big sting. Hey man, we got this belt in here, come steal it. Then when they realized what they had and the fact that like, what are you going to do with this thing? You can’t sell it anywhere.

It’s like stealing a ’59 Les Paul from Keith Richards. It’s worth 500 grand, but who’s going to buy it? Everyone knows Keith Richards lost the Les Paul. You know what I mean? I think when they realized that they couldn’t do anything with it, they just kind of left it on the side of the road for somebody to pick up and turn in to the police department.”

“It was just really weird. The police were taking pictures with the belt and posting it on Twitter and then they deleted it. It was just a very strange situation for this title that was barely 12 hours old.”

Chris Jericho then talked about his opinion on the AEW World Championship belt just being left on the side of the road hours after it was stolen.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“It wasn’t left, yeah. I could go deep into it.” “There’s so much other stuff in there where it really was like a Hardy Boys mystery book when you read them when you were a kid, Nancy Drew.”
