Chris Jericho Compares His Current AEW Role To The Undertaker

Le Champion is one of AEW's elder statesmen

At 51 years-old, Chris Jericho has seen and done everything there is to do in the pro wrestling industry.

The first ever WWF Undisputed World Champion, and first ever AEW World Champion is showing no signs of slowing down, and as revealed to PopCulture, Jericho sees himself in an almost ‘Undertaker’ like role in AEW:

"I mean, obviously now at 51, there's more years behind me than are ahead of me,” said Jericho. “But if you would've asked me five years ago where I was going to go, I probably would've said, 'I'll probably stop in the next few years.' But then AEW started and it just rejuvenated everything for me.

"Not that there's any comparison, but I think I'm kind of taking on like The Undertaker role in the WWE for his last few years there. Where every time he does something, it's impactful; it means something. He's a benefit to have in the locker room. He's a leader. He's very experienced. He can tell guys and girls what they're doing right and what they're doing wrong. And it's just a good person to have around your roster."
