Chris Jericho Believes Swerve Strickland Will Be AEW World Champion

Chris Jericho is a big fan of Swerve Strickland, sees him as a future AEW World Champion

Swerve Strickland has been on a big rise in AEW over the last few months, finding himself in the AEW World Championship picture. Despite losing out in his challenge at Revolution 2024 in a triple threat match, Strickland has remained in a feud with AEW World Champion Samoa Joe.

When looking forwards, a former world champion in AEW, Chris Jericho, thinks it is only a matter of time for Strickland to be crowned with the biggest prize in the company, explaining so in an interview on Gabby AF.

"I'm a huge fan of Swerve. I think eventually he'll be our world champion. I mean, it's just a matter of time at this point. He's got the cool factor. He's new. He's fresh. He can talk. He looks great. I mean, he's a guy that can be a crossover super-super star, which is I think exactly what AEW needs to go to the next level, someone like Swerve or someone like Will Ospreay that people don't really know, that have the look, they have the uniqueness, they have the charisma, and once again, I'm not just talking about inside the ring. I'm talking about outside the ring because that's what wrestling is. You become a mainstream star and you build the company. Look at all the guys that have done multiple things and get out of the wrestling bubble into the mainstream world that just makes your company stronger. It makes you a bigger star and makes your company bigger."

At the back end of last year, Jericho singled out Strickland as someone he’d love to work with in AEW.
