A top WWE Superstar congratulated former 9-time Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho on his recent contract renewal with AEW.
Ronda Rousey climbed back to the top of the mountain after her long-awaited return earlier this year. After failing to defeat Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 38, the two went head-to-head in an “I Quit” match in which Rousey became the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Last week she defeated Liv Morgan to win her second SmackDown Women’s Championship. AEW star Chris Jericho recently signed a multi-year extension with the company with additional duties and responsibilities. In her live stream, Rousey congratulated The Ocho. Here’s what she said to the 8-time world champion:
“Also, congratulations Jericho. Congrats on yours [AEW contract] Renewal. It’s great.” (From 2:29 to 2:40)
It’s now official that Jericho will be All Elite by the end of 2025. However, fans have enjoyed his work as the promotion has risen as the old regime in WWE has not taken full advantage of him.
When was Chris Jericho last in WWE?
Chris Jericho is one of the most decorated wrestlers of the current generation. The Lionheart has been in the wrestling industry for almost three decades. He has worked in several major promotions including WWE, WCW, ECW, NJPW and AEW.
