Jay Lethal Wants A Match With Chris Jericho

The two have never wrestled each other

Despite a combined 50 years in the wrestling business between them, Chris Jericho and Jay Lethal have never wrestled each other.

Now with both being a part of AEW, there is a chance the two could cross paths, with Lethal himself admitting to The TWC Show that he would love the chance to face ‘Le Champion’:

“I have not been in the ring with and I was a big fan of Chris Jericho, especially during Y2J and the big countdown,” Lethal said. “I remember me and my brother going nuts and we would memorise some of Jericho’s promos. I remember there was that one point where he had someone in the Walls of Jericho and he’d be screaming ‘I’m the king of the world! I’m the king of the world!’ I said that for years…

“So yeah, Jericho is definitely on the top of the list for me but just getting to be around him and work with him, if that’s all I can do, then I’m fine with that because it’s been a pleasure talking with him and him sharing some ideas with me, and he’s been nothing but great to me and it’s been incredible. But if I do get to be in the ring with him, it’s the icing on the cake.”
