Before leaving the company in 2016, Chris Jericho had already established himself as one of the legends of WWE. The Demo God has held multiple titles in his decades-long run with WWE. However, Jericho signed with All Elite Wrestling(AEW) in 2019 and is also one of the founding members of the company. The former WWE star also plays a huge role in AEW’s success.

Though, when it comes to his retirement, many believe Chris Jericho will end his career in WWE. However, the AEW superstar does not think that way. The Demo God spoke about the matter when he sat with Chris Van Vliet.

Jericho stated that he never anticipated his career to be this long. The AEW star then mentioned his 2016 storyline with Kevin Owens and described how that uplifted his in-ring career again.

Chris Jericho added he does not look at his job that way, and even if he ends his career elsewhere, he will still be a part of WWE. The former WWE star believes his name in WWE is cemented and will remain forever. He stated:

“Who knows man, I mean, I don’t ever really think about what I am going to be doing in the future. If I finish my career with WWE or AEW. My time in the WWE is cemented if I go back or not… I mean, I am still always a part of WWE…”
