Jericho On If His Tour With Fozzy Will Affect His AEW Appearances

The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz) came out on top of the Pinnacle (MJF, FTR, Wardlow and Shawn Spears) in the main event of last Sunday’s Double or Nothing in the Stadium Stampede Match. Following the show, Chris Jericho took part in the media scrum, where The Demo God revealed that even though a tour with his band Fozzy is on the horizon, it will not take his focus off of Dynamite and that he will still make it work and appear on Dynamite as much as he can.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“It’s one of those things that if you kind of do the math and look at the schedules, there’s always a way to make it work.” “With AEW we’re excited to go back on the road. Fozzy, this tour that we’re doing was postponed five times. And now that we’re ready to go its super exciting in that respect as well. But I’ll be on Dynamite as much as I can, which is still probably all the time.”

Jericho then talked about one of the biggest missions of All Elite Wrestling from the beginning is to create their own stars and they have done a great job doing that by putting rosters together like the veterans with guys in their prime as well as up and comers and rookies that have been partnered up on Dark: Elevation and Dark and that has been done to build new stars.

This is what Chris Jericho said:

“One of the biggest missions of AEW from the start is to build our owns stars. That’s how you make a company popular.” “And we’ve done a great job. Tony Khan, this is what he does, he puts together rosters. He’s has veterans, he’s has guys in their prime, he has a great kind of up and comer and then rookies that play on the Elevation and Dark teams. But it’s always to build new stars. And I know some people are ‘there’s always so many faces on Dynamite.’ That’s because we want people to be familiar with who these guys and girls are, even if they just appear for a second. ‘Who’s Nick Comoroto?’ You’ll find out over the next few years. Then there’s ‘there’s so many factions!’ Well, to me, I don’t have a problem getting as many people on TV as possible.”

“Cause once again, we’re planting seeds so you can see these faces. Some of them will be main eventers, some of them will be middle. Everybody we’ve signed here is here to be a star. We don’t sign people just to sign them. It kind of harkens back to when I first signed with WWE in 1999. Everybody has something. That’s what we want here. We have such a big roster so we try to put as much as we can, so they can get familiar with them. Sammy tonight, he won the main event, so that’s what we want. Shawn Spears never got much of a chance in WWE. Then go through the roster. Wardlow, they had no interest. Hager came with us, FTR came with us. Santana and Ortiz they were begging them to go to WWE, they said no way. Sammy I handpicked him, same thing. We want to be here for the right reasons, because we’re believe in our company, we’re building it together and it really feels that way.”
