When AEW was first launched back in January 1st, 2019, the promotion has really been making a name in the professional wrestling industry and AEW has been garnering global recognition and major successes all around the world and they have even been reaching worldwide audiences and markets. In just over a two year time period, AEW has become a globally recognized pro wrestling promotion and the company is even considered as a real and worthy competitor of the WWE.
One of the biggest factors in the company’s continued success is the caliber of talent they have been signing such as Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Chris Jericho, Christian Cage, Malakai Black, Andrade El Idolo and CM Punk, just to name a few, but the promotion is reportedly also close in coming to terms on a deal with Daniel Bryan and Ric Flair, which will be a huge game changer for AEW in pro wrestling.
Speaking of Chris Jericho and AEW, he was the biggest signing in All Elite Wrestling history when the promotion first launched back in 2019 and he was even the first-ever AEW World Champion. Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program after he was asked by a fan on what is Jericho’s current AEW contract status as he signed a three-year deal and how much time he has left that while Jericho did sign a three-year deal with the company, he has a one-year option on it, which means that Jericho’s AEW contract is up at the end of next year, so Chris has about a year and a half left.
Chris Jericho is set to face MJF for the very last time at the All Out PPV on September 5th, with the stipulation that if Jericho loses, then he will never wrestle for AEW again.
