Davey Richards Thinks Fans Will Be Disappointed If He Isn't On AEW Dynamite

Davey Richards on potentially appearing on AEW Dynamite tonight

Speculation has been rife about which former ROH champion Chris Jericho will defend the ROH World Title against on tonight's episode of AEW Dynamite, with names like Colt Cabana, Rhett Titus, BJ Whitmer, and Alex Shelley being mentioned.

One wrestler that has often popped up in conversation, though, is Davey Richards and the former ROH World Champion believes fans will be disappointed if he isn't on tonight's show.

"No because that takes away the fun of it. I'm just taken aback by it. This sounds like such an arrogant move and I hope people know what I mean and know that I'm not an arrogant person; if it's anyone but me, I feel people are going to be disappointed because I'm so blessed. There has been such a vocalisation, 'It should be Davey.' For people that still want to see me do that, that's so cool. That's motivation," Richards said on the Battleground podcast.

If he will be on tonight's Dynamite ultimately remains to be seen, but Richards did reveal a goal of his is to eventually sign with a bigger promotion, preferably with Eddie Edwards.

"When I came back to wrestling, I didn't know if I wanted to do it full-time or if people would want to see me. My work rate is most important and I feel better than ever. I want to eventually go to a bigger company, preferably with Eddie (Edwards), but he has a really good deal with IMPACT. I don't know where the future lies, but that's definitely a goal. For the right reasons. It's not just about the money. My main job at this stage in wrestling is to give back to wrestling and help people. I feel I can do that and I can also wrestle. We'll see what happens," he added.
